Tackle World Moruya fishing report

Moruya River. A massive thank you to everyone who attended our 18th Birthday celebrations last Saturday, it was a great day, and it was really good to see the turn out. A big thank you to Kimmi and Grace from 2EC for your help on the day. A big thank you to all of our suppliers that donated goods towards the major prize and give away bags, without your support we wouldn’t have been able to offer what we did. I would also like to welcome Russell to the Tackle World Moruya team as our newest member. He will mainly be in store during the weekends and as a gap filler when needed. On to the fishing report. There have been good numbers of both Salmon and Trevally down around Preddy’s wharf this last week still, the numbers of tailor in the river have dropped as they have moved onto the beaches for the most part. The flathead and bream have both gone a little quiet as the water temps continue to drop. They can still be found, but you will need to slow down your retrieval rates and reduce your presentation sizes. Metal blades and 2.5” sized soft plastics fished slowly close to the bottom will do the trick. In front of the hospital, there are a few nice deep holes, that have good structure in them. These offer great hiding holes and cover for fish holding deep. A drifted bait of mullet fillet worked through this zone can bring a cold fish undone. Tuross River. As the water temps continue to drop, the water becomes crystal clear, this is becoming more prevalent in Tuross over the last few weeks. These conditions do make for great sighting opportunities, but also work against the angler. If you can see the fish, the fish can see you!! Long light leaders are required to get the bite this time of year, but have the fish at a distinct advantage when a bigger model takes your presentation. The deeper holes that have a bit more colour to them, provide better coverage for hiding fish this time of year. Work your baits or lures slowly towards the bottom for best chance of getting tight lipped fish to bite. Rock and Beach. The Salmon seem to be everywhere at the moment, with fish from 1.5kg all the way to 4kg being taken. The Moruya breakwall has been a popular spot, with plenty of big salmon being taken. The local ledges have been producing a few nice drummer also this week, with the northern ledges above Batemans bay starting to show signs of both mulloway and the odd snapper. Offshore. Good numbers of Snapper continue to make their way over the sides of most boats heading out for a spot of bottom bashing. Start looking in as little as 10-15m of water before working out to 30-40m. There has been a few mumbling of tuna out wide for those setup to chase them. We still have a few post birthday sales running, most notably 30% off all Shimano luggage, 40% of Fritchy tools and a rack of rods with 50% off marked RRP!! Stay safe everyone and remember, “every days a good day for fishing…” Team Tackle World Moruya.
