Well, it has been a quiet week this last week, and as the rain is set to intensify this weekend, it will probably be a quiet weekend also. As I have said a few time over the last few months, fish the fronts of the estuary and target the deeper holes. With the fresh that is coming down the river, the fish will be pushed towards the areas of higher salinity.
Oilier, smelly baits will be the go to options, with mullet & tuna fillets being the main contenders. A burley trail of fish scraps, pellets and tuna oil will help attract a few fish towards your bait. Any burley is always better than no burley when the river is dirty.
Tuross is in pretty much the same place as Moruya again this week. With the continued wet conditions, and bleak forecast, the fish is going to be tough coming into the weekend and throughout next week.
Fish the front end of the system, looking for the deeper holes that will have a higher salinity levels. Oilier smellier baits will be your go to also for Tuross.
Rock and beach.
The salmon have continued to be plentiful along most surf beaches this week. Moruya breakwall has again produced good fish, although with the forecast rain and dirtier water, expect the fishing to drop off.
Beaches that are away from major river mouths will hold cleaner water as the rain continues. So look for them, as the rain is set to stir things up again.
Offshore reports have been a little on the quiet side this last week, and I would imagine with the weather forecast, the same will continue.
Wet weekends are a great time to come in and see us to restock depleted tackle boxes, or maybe look at replacing the worn out ole faithful reel or rod.
Remember also that starting this weekend, with every 3 packets of Daiwa Bait Junkie soft plastics purchased, you will get a free grab bag valued at $14.99 (while stocks last).
Stay safe everyone and remember, “every days a good day for fishing...”
