Was that nearly 7 days without rain we had?? Well, it was nice while we had blue sky’s and warm days! But seriously Huey, we are kinda over the wet stuff! The forecast for the weekend isn’t looking too bad, I would however, pack a rain jacket if you plan on getting out this weekend.
Moruya has been fishing well this last week, with good numbers of Flathead, Bream, Trevally and even a few Estuary Perch showing up in the system. As is the norm, there are good Flathead and Bream to be taken in the lower sections of the river, with all manner of techniques working.
Under the town bridge, after dark on a high tide, the sand flats in the middle of the river have been holding a few nice flathead, with a few Estuary Perch and even Tailor showing up. The weed beds on the southern side of the river hold the EP’s, while the middle sections and drop offs are Golding the Flathead and Tailor.
Live nippers pumped from Garlandtown at low tide and kept in an aerated bucket are great baits for everything here.
The holes in front of the hospital should also be holding fish at the moment, with Bream, Flathead and Whiting all taking a liking to the granite boulders that offer hiding and ambush spots here.
Tuross has been on fire this week, with many good fish being reported! Good news for all anglers is the fact that the entire system is fishing well, all the way from the entrance to well up past the Bodalla bridge.
Bream, BIG Flathead, Trevally, Eatuary Perch have all been reported this week. It’s time to get out and explore this amazing piece of water.
One local angler had, what can only be described as an EPIC session on the Flathead with not 1, but 2 fish both breaking the 1m mark!! The fish were both released and went 1m and a 1.1m respectively all within 2-3 casts of each other. Soft plastics were doing the damage, with the Diawa Bait Junkie plastics claiming the win.
Rock and Beach.
The Salmon, Tailor Bream and Whiting all continue to keep beach anglers busy this week, with fish available to everyone up and down the coast line. Broulee head land fished well for Salmon and Trevally last weekend, and will no doubt hold fish this weekend also. Moruya Breakwall has also been producing fish, for the stalwarts that like to throw from the stones here. Salmon, Tailor, Bream and Flathead are all targets that can be expected to be encountered here this weekend.
Snapper, Flathead, Bonito and Gummy sharks have dominated the catches this week, with snapper in as little as 15m of water. The artificial reef continues to build an eco system, with good numbers of fish continuing to take up residence on the structure. An unusual , and often cussed at species has decided to turn up this last week, with Barracuda turning up to relieve several anglers of their rigs with bite offs. It is unusual to see them in waters as warm as we currently have, as they prefer the colder currents. Hopefully they don’t hang around too long, although we don’t mind helping you guys to replace lost gear .
Stay tuned for our 18th Birthday celebrations, as we are starting to plan the event for July. Given the last few years, it is an event we haven’t managed to hold for a number of years. We are looking forward to holding our usual birthday weekend, so stay tuned for further details.
Stay safe everyone and remember, “every day's a good day for fishing…”
