Your up-to-date fishing report from Tackle World Moruya Nov 27th 2020
Moruya river. With a warmer than average forecast for this weekend, I feel that some time on a shady river bank, is going to be the tonic for what ails you. The river is certainly on the improve this week, with reports starting to come in of fish being caught throughout the system. The river up around Yarragee bend has been described as clear but tannin stained this week. There have been reports of a few flathead starting to show up this far up the system, a good sign that the salt water is finally making its way upstream. This gives up you all plenty of options on areas to explore. Down towards the front of the system has, again, been the pick of areas to fish this week, with bream and whiting starting to make an appearance on the flats and channel edges. Live nippers or live worms have been the best baits this week. With soft plastics and surface style lures also starting to get amongst it as well. The wind will have a big influence this weekend, particularly during the middle of the day. Fish early or late to avoid the worst of the wind, with Saturday looking better than Sunday.
Tuross river. Good flathead have been reported this week, with a really nice 92cm specimen being caught last Saturday from the Tuross boat shed. The majority of the fish are still being caught around the southern flats towards the potato point side of the river this week. There have also been reports of a few whiting starting to also appear as the warmer waters are starting to get things stirred up. As the salt water influence continues to move further up stream, areas around 4 ways and above will start to become better options for finding fish. Surface lures fished around the oyster leases area again starting to produce the goods with the bream fishos. Cicada style lures will also tempt bream, as they become a food source moving into summer.
Rock and beach. The salmon continue to keep a few beach fishos entertained this week. As the outflow from the rivers is clearing up, the Moruya breakwall and Tuross mouth areas are staring to fish better. The mouth of Congo creek also has a few whiting and bream on the beaches to keep anglers both happy and fed. Again the early morning and late afternoon/evening sessions will be the best, both with the tides and the wind. Baits of ganged pilchards, live nippers or live beach worms will be the best options.
Offshore. Reports of good numbers of flathead, snapper, and gummy sharks are continuing to come in this week from those who have got out for a fish. Try the usual haunts in around 30-40m of water as a starting point. Early morning session will be the best options before the wind comes up. The forecast for Sunday is approaching 55kmph so be aware of conditions. Whether the winds actually reach these predicted speeds is yet to be seen.
By now you should have all received our 2020 Xmas catalogue in the post. So if there is something you are after, come in and check out the range. We haven’t run everything in the catalogue, so we are happy to take phone calls to answer any questions you may have. One product to look at in particular is the Thermacell range of mosquito repellent devices. With the amount of rain we have had, and the amount of mozzies already around. These units create a 21 square meter sphere that repels the mozzies and other bities. They use a mat or pad that provides 4 hours of protection. Graham has grabbed a couple to try at home, but from the reports I have had, they work very well. Come in and check them out today.
Take a look at those warm currents off the coast. Nice, !
Stay safe everyone, and remember “every days a good day for fishing...”
