Tackle World Moruya Fishing Report Dec 16th 2022

Moruya River. Reports this week have again been very positive, with good numbers of flathead, bream, trevally, and estuary perch all being reported. The airport flats, Preddy’s wharf and quarry wharf have all had numbers of fish, with the tailor still hanging around the two wharves, and the airport flats holding some nice flathead. We just need this southerly system to leave us alone, and allow some summer like conditions to start to make themselves at home. On a plus note also, it would seem that NSW Waterways has finally got around to removing the errant signs from the hole in the wall. Reports from all the way up past Yarragee have also come in this week with flathead, bream and estuary perch. It’s good to see these upper areas of the system starting to be productive again. The hospital hole has produced the usual bream and Trevally this week, while the town bridge and the flats below have held a few nice flathead and bream as well. The chilly southerlies look to hanging around for at least a few more days, so rug up and get a goat it this weekend.

Tuross. Coila lake is still open to the ocean at this stage, big seas this week will probably deposit sand in the lake entrance, resulting in the lake closing up again sooner than later. There were good prawn last dark, and fingers crossed they will be even bigger next dark, which will be Friday 23rd of December. If you need prawning gear, we are well stocked with everything you and the family will need. The Tuross system, has again been the best performer this week despite the strong winds we have been experiencing. Good numbers of flathead, bream, trevally, tailor and Luderick have all been reported this week. Once we get a good week of hot sunny weather, the system will kick up a notch as well. The fish in Tuross have been spread far and wide, allowing for plenty of exploration, and weather options. Tuross always has somewhere you can find a spot that is out of the wind and protected. Fish have been reported all the way up the back of Bumbo lake, so get out and explore this awesome fishery this weekend.

Rock and Beach. While the wind has made it very trying to fish the beaches and headlands this week, the north facing headlands and ledges have been the easiest areas to fish with the strong southerly winds we have had this week. There have been a few bream and whiting starting to appear in the mixed grounds next to headlands and beaches this week. We can expect this to further improve as the summer warms up. There have still been good numbers of salmon on the beaches for those who have braved a sandblasting. The northern side of Moruya breakwall has seen intermittent fish activity this week, with the usual salmon schools a little on the quiet side.

Offshore. There have been limited reports from boat crews this week, what I have heard is that there are still good numbers of snapper and flathead available for this who have got out. Try working the magic 30-40m for most fish. The game crews are keening awaiting the run of summer billfish, but as yet I, I have t had anything to report.
