Moruya River The fishing is good in the lower sections of the river at the moment. There is a definite delineation between the still fresher, tannin stained water and the incoming tidal influence in the system. Areas around Preddy’s wharf and the hole in the wall are producing good catches of bream and flathead, as are the areas around the airport boat ramp on the northern bank. Reports of kings to 85cm have come in from the spur wall down near the airport. The kings have been chasing bait on an incoming tide, so live baits worked around this area have a chance of being hit. The areas around the bridge are still a bit on the murky side, with a mixture on incoming tidal influence and tannin stained run off making life a little difficult. Time will remedy this, but for the present oily baits such as mullet and tuna fillet as well as pilchards are your best options.
Good catches of bream, flathead and whiting are being reported again down the front of the system this week. The tidal influence down the front of the system is providing more opportunities to find the fish at the moment. 3”-4” soft plastics are working well as a prospecting pattern whilst looking for fish. Try using Berkeley Gulps, Z-Man or Squidgy Grubs to find a feed of fish. Good tailor continue to turn up around dusk as well. Pilchards presented on gangs, or long shank hooks are your best options to stop being bitten off whilst trying for the razor gang.
Rock and Beach
The Moruya breakwall continues to produce very good numbers of salmon, trevally and bream. If you are going to fish the wall, just remember to give anyone else fishing the wall plenty of space. If the wall is crowded, there are plenty of beaches that are also producing fish. Try around Tuross, Pedro’s and the wind sock. There are plenty of good gutters all with good numbers of bream, tailor, salmon and whiting in them. Off the local ledges, good drummer have been reported, as well as salmon.
We really haven’t had any reports this week. So I don’t really have anything to report from offshore this week.
With the current climate of Covid-19 uncertainty, we have decided to offer free home deliveries on any purchase over $20 from Mossy Point to Tuross Heads. Alternatively, you can phone the shop with your order and we can bag it up and have it ready for you to collect at the door, or we can run it out to the car if you so wish.
If you do decide to come in, please maintain the required 1.5m distances and we will the best we can to get you sorted out. Fingers crossed we can continue to trade our way through this.
Don’t forget we are still running our Atomic prize pack competition for the month of March. For every $50 you spend, you will get a ticket to go into the draw for a $235 Atomic Arrows rod and prize pack. At the same time Tackle World Australia are raffling off a Haswing Bow Mount electric motor to the value of $1700!! Again, for every $50 you spend you will get a ticket, so for March, for every $50 you spend you will get entry into 2 competitions. Good value for money and good luck!!
Tight Lines my friends and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “
Please stay safe in this time of uncertainty!
