Tackle World Fishing Report - Feb 19th 2021
Moruya River. With a mostly fine week and minimal rains, the river is again starting to improve this week. The lower sections of the river have predominantly been the better producers, with reasonable numbers of bream, flathead, trevally and the odd whiting turning up to keep anglers entertained. Again the areas around Preddy’s wharf, the northern Airport flats, and in behind hole in the wall producing the most fish. The nipper beds around Garlandtown continue to be hard work, as the nipper population recovers from being very heavily worked, over the Xmas period. Further upstream, around the bridge, there has been an improvement in the numbers of bream, flathead and the odd estuary perch after dark showing up.
Tuross river. The flathead continue to the major prize this week, with still good numbers of good sized fish being caught towards the front of the system. The areas around the main boat ramp and the potato point flats have seen the majority of the action, with areas further up stream as high as four ways, still producing good numbers of bream, flathead and the odd whiting. The reports from up around the bodalla bridge are not so good, as there seems to still be a good amount of fresh that far up.
Rock and beach. The are still good numbers of salmon, bream and whiting to be found on all the main beaches this week. Not to mention a good number of banjo and shovel nose sharks, as a buddy of mine and I discovered last Sunday whilst drone fishing. We managed a couple of salmon that will be turned into shark baits for a future drone trip. This style of fishing certainly opens up new areas to fish, as distance is only limited to spool capacity and flight times. The Moruya breakwall continues to see good numbers of salmon, trevally, bream and the odd flathead coming up onto the wall for anglers. Pilchards on gang hooks, strips of mullet fillets or metals cast and retrieved are all good ways to share a few fish.
Offshore. There have been good numbers of flathead in the 30-40m mark this week, with snapper holding a bit further out as the warm currents continue to really push down the coast. Further out wide the run of Marlin continues with games crews getting into a few good fish.
If you have been waiting for the re-release of the ever popular Daiwa Presso Rollin Crank bream lures, we’ll wait no longer! As we know have the complete colour and size range in store. Come in and check them out today, they are now under the Daiwa Infeet Rollin Crank banner, and have been selling well this week.
Stay safe everyone, and remember “every days a good day for fishing...”
