Your Up to Date Fishing report from Tackle World Moruya Feb 1st 2019

Moruya River

Plenty of whiting have been caught along most of the flats this week. Garland town, the bridge and the hospital flats are all producing fish on both surface lures like Bassday Sugapens and baits like sand worms and nippers.

Quarry wharf has been good for a mixed bag of species including bream, tailor, flounder and trevally using baits like prawns and mullet fillet. Soft plastics like Gulp Nemisis and the Squidgy bio tough grubs are also working well.

Flathead have been found drifting the channel near the hole in the wall using blue bait on small gang hooks. The entrance to Ryan's creek has also been productive using black and gold Squidgy fish in 80 mm.

Tuross River

Mulloway have been on the bite this week with anglers targeting the deeper sections of the channel using live poddy mullet for bait. Several good size fish have been landed including a nice big flathead up around the one metre mark, which was released after a pic!

Whiting have been hitting Jackson Pygmy poppers up along snake flat with some measuring up to 40 cm. Baits like nippers have also worked a treat.

The oyster leases throughout the system are holding some nice bream. Surface lures like Bassday Sugapens have been very effective.

Rocks and beaches

Squid have well and truly been on the bite this past week with great numbers landed off the rocks at Broulee, Moruya and Bingi. Pink Yamashita jigs in 3.0 have been doing the damage.

A nice channel has formed along Tuross beach on the southern side of the inlet. Bream and whiting have been caught in good numbers using fresh worms for bait, with jewies up to 15 kg also being pulled in.

Windsock beach near the airport has reportedly fished well for salmon using both bait and Arma metal casting lures.


Mixed bags coming in this week from offshore. The 40 metre mark just off the surf club has seen some nice fish landed including snapper, mowie, nannygai, rock cod and flathead. Salted pillies have been the bait of choice.

Out at 60 metres pigfish, snapper, john dory and gummy’s are all being caught using pillies and Lunds California squid. Instinct performance rigs are working extremely well.
