Tailor, Flathead, Bream and Trevally have dominated the reported captures this week. The overall size of the tailor has dropped from 50cm+ to the 40cm mark while the numbers caught has remained consistent. Small metals appear to be the best option if you are looking to reduce tackle losses associated with bait fishing when chasing the tailor.
Baits for Bream and Flathead are working nicely, with the catch being trying to get baits below the tailor schools without being bitten off.
The airport flats are holding a producing good numbers of Flathead around the shallower areas that tend not to hold the schools of Tailor, so this is one option to escape the bite offs!
Back of the hole in the wall has seen some nice Bream extracted from the oyster leases on hard body lures and soft plastics, with the adjoining flats also holding some nice flathead.
Further up the river around the town bridge, Flathead, Tailor, Estuary Perch and Bream have all been found orotund the deeper drop offs and the flats in the middle of the river.
Options abound for Moruya this weekend, just keep an eye on the forecast rains.
Plenty of good Flathead, Bream, Tailor, and Trevally have also been taken throughout the Tuross system this week. All the way from the front of the systems to well up past the Bumbo part of he river.
All presentation are working this week, with something for the bait fishers and lure chuckers alike. The racks throughout the system are holding good numbers of Bream, with the flats around deeper drop off holding good Flathead also.
As the water temps drop, expect a few mulloway to start turning up also.
Keep an eye on the forecast rain for this weekend, and into next week. With the amount forecast, we can expect the rivers to get another flush of dirty fresh again.
When this does eventuate, work the deeper holes towards the front of the system.
Rock and Beach.
For anyone wanting to fish the stones this weekend, keep an eye on the seas conditions. The swells are forecast to to reach 4-5m by Monday with them building steadily all weekend!
There have been continuing good catches of both salmon and tailor from a lot of the beaches this week, with the Moruya breakwall holding a good number of these fish. Just keep an eye on the rising Easterly to N-Easterly swell conditions. Expect to see waves breaking on the end of the breakwall as the weekend progresses.
There have been good reports of snapper, Flathead and a good mix of other reef species this week. Please take the forecast conditions into account this weekend, as the rising seas are not really lending themselves to an offshore session this weekend.
If in doubt, don’t!
