Tackle World Moruya Fishing Report

Moruya River. There has been a fair bit of action reported in Moruya river this week. Reports of good sized yakkas chasing 2.5” grub style plastics down at Preddy’s wharf shows how warm the offshore currents are at the moment. With bait in the river, there is always the possibility of bigger pelagics coming into the river to hunt them down. Yakkas make a great strip bait for bream, flathead while whole, they make a good dead or live bait for snapper and kingfish. There continue to be good reports of trevally, bream and flathead on both sides of the river around Preddy’s and the airport flats also. The river conditions continue to improve, as we haven’t seen a lot of rain of late. With dismissed levels of fresh water making its way down stream, the fishing will continue to improve throughout the system. Fingers crossed it stays this way for the rapidly approaching Easter break. Lord knows we could all do with a dry, warm Easter period!

Tuross River. Tuross yet again has been turning on the flathead in the lower to middle sections of the river. With a large prominent river mouth in play at the present the river is turning over good amounts of water every tide change. This is helping the river to clear up a lot quicker than usual. With more clean warm ocean water pushing further into the system, we can expect to start finding fish in the usual spot further upstream, and hopefully the oyster rack will start to hold and produce some big bream. For the time being, the main boat ramp up past the boat sheds and into four ways, will be the areas to explore this weekend.

Rock and beach. All the local beaches have been producing good numbers of salmon, tailor, bream and whiting this week. With the predicted 6+m swells this weekend though, the rock platforms will be a definite no go area, as conditions will be dangerous to say the least. The big seas will also tend to shut a bit of the beach action down, as big seas tend to suspend a lot of sand in the water, something fish don’t really enjoy. Look for Northey facing sections of beach or protected corners if you want to try your hand this weekend. Be careful fishing Moruya breakwall, as the waves are already breaking over the end of the wall. The southerly winds will help those casting from the wall onto the beach side though.

Offshore. Snapper, flathead, and variety of sharks have all been reported this week in 30-40m of water. With the sea conditions and the state of Moruya bar at the moment, I’m thinking that an offshore session this week would best be avoided till conditions improve.

We have received good top ups of stock this week, with fresh dive gear arriving ready for the winter dive season. We have also received a boost to our Shimano luggage range, so if you are looking to replace or re-organise your tackle storage requirements, come in and have a look.

Don’t forget that our new website is up and running, if you haven’t already checked it out. You can find it at:
