Tackle World Fishing Report April 29th 2022

Moruya River.

More positive reports this week, as the river continues to fish well. With only minimal rainfall this last week, the river steadily continues to clear, for now! Most of the fishing action has been seen from Quarry wharf down to the mouth, with the airport flats, Preddy’s wharf and the anchorage all seeing good numbers of Flathead, Bream and Trevally. The flats and racks in behind hole in the wall have been holding good Bream and Flathead also.

The water temp at this time of the year is at its highest, so you never know what might turn up this time of the year.

The water under the town bridge is also starting to clear up, all be it slowly, but Flathead and Bream on the sand flats under it are starting g to become an option after dark again. There is also a chance that the odd Estuary Perch may also be found.

Tuross River.

This system has been the leader this past week, with plenty of clear clean warm water cycling in and out of the system, due to the wide river mouth currently in affect. Flathead, Bream, Trevally have all been a common catch this week, with the cleaner waters pushing up above four ways offering anglers more than just the lower sections to once again explore and fish.

With a dark moon this Sunday, there could even be a chance to find a few late season prawns in Coila.

With warm currents prevalent, the whiting could possibly be making a late season appearance in the river over the flats.

Rock and Beach.

Bream, Whiting, Tailor, Salmon, Bonito have all made an appearance on the local headlands and beaches this last week. Moruya breakwall has been fishing particularly well, with good numbers of Tailor and Bream reported, along with Trevally Salmon and Flathead.

Worms have been the bait of choice for those chasing the Bream and Whiting on the beaches. While pilchards or cast metal lures have accounted for the Tailor, Salmon and Bonito from the breakwall and the local headlands.


Snapper and Flathead have both been encountered this last week, for the crews fishing offshore. With the currents at the warmest, no doubt there has been a few games crews Turing reels out wide also.

Look in 40-50m of water for the snapper, while 20-30m of water is a good place to start looking for the Flathead.

Reports from Montague Island have been hit and miss on the Kingfish, with some days producing good sized fish, and others leaving anglers wondering, where do the fish go from day to day??

We have a brand new offering from Diawa Australia in store now, with the Infeet Kodachi lures arriving this week. These lures will be crackers on the big blue nose Bream we start to see from now on as the weather starts to cool. They will also account for Estuary Perch, Flathead, Bass, Trevally and Trout up in the mountains.

Come in and check them out today.

With mothers days rapidly approaching, do you have something for your mum? Well, we have you covered with Rapala Femme Fatale and Ugly Stick combos in pink and purple in store and ready for your mum. Come in and check them out.

Stay safe everyone and remember, “every days a good day for fishing…”
