Your up to date fishing report from the Tackle World Moruya team
Good reports this week of bream and trevally being caught around the Quarry wharf area and even better reports of large flathead being taken on soft plastics in and around the Garlandtown flats area. With the weather warming up its nearly time to break out the surface lures.
Great reports this week of bream up to around 35 cm and flatties to 55cm being caught in both the oyster leases and up river around the rocky edges. These fish were caught on Jackson 70mm athletes and Daiwa double clutch in the 60 mm size. Good numbers of perch are being caught up the back of the system, try using a very lightly weighted Gulp crabies as these fish are deep in the snags and hard to get out.
Rocks and beaches
Reports this week of large drummer, bream and luderick hanging around most headlands with the bait of choice being peeled prawns or cunjie. The salmon schools have been a bit hit and miss this week as they are moving around a fair bit but when you can find them Arma metal slices around 40 grams and pilchards on a paternoster rig will do the trick. Reports of possible Kingies spooling anglers off some of the southern headlands have also surfaced. Squid are still being caught around Bingie with some lobsters being trapped around Pedro/Congo area.
With the swells starting to abate from the 4m peaks we had earlier in the week, reports from outside have been hard to come by. Now that the swells have dropped off, it could be time to get out and chase the flatties that were holding around the 60m mark.
Just a quick update on the Snowy Mountains Trout scene for this week.
Lake levels as follows:
Eucumbene 26% and steady.
Jindabyne dropped to 66% capacity, now steady.
Tantangara is rising, currently at 27% capacity.
The weather forecast from this Friday through to Monday is looking great, very spring like with temps in the low 20’s, light winds and sunshine, perfect weather to wet a line on one of the Alpine Lakes.
Lake Jindabyne has been fishing very well, trolling Rapala’s F-7 In spotted dog has been the go to lure, producing great numbers of nicely conditioned Brownies, full of yabbies.
Eucumbene is getting good reports from the bait fishos, scrub worms and yabbies are this weeks flavour. Trolling bright colours in the 3-4m mark seems to be the key to success.
Tantangara is looking very fishy. The snow has melted and the banks are getting a little firmer.
A few fly fishos are getting onto some nice trout.
Tight lines my friends and remember “every days a good day for fishing … “
