Your UP to Date fishing report from the team at Tackle World Moruya Oct 30th 2020
Moruya River. Reports this week have been a bit on the light side due to the less than ideal weather conditions. The few reports I have had, have concentrated down around Preddy’s wharf and the hole in the wall. A couple of visiting anglers managed to find a few nice flathead and bream while drifting from above Preddy’s to down below the hole in the wall with both baits and soft plastics. It was a rinse and repeat process, after finishing one drift they motored back up river to repeat the drift on the run out tide. I did manage one flathead off of the bridge last Saturday afternoon before the storm that rolled through town ran me off. I managed to drop 3 other nice flathead by striking too early, the downside of fishing from height in windy conditions. Jackson bottom magic lures did the damage, and I will probably go back this weekend for a night session to coincide with the full moon and bigger tides. Fingers xed I can manage to stick a couple . Tuross River. The few reports from Tuross this week have been from catches from further upstream over the shallower less tide affected areas that have been substantially warmer than the lower more tide affected cooler areas. Looking at the sea surface temps, there is a fair bit of cooler water swirling around from last week. So my tip would be to try the back bays or flats further up the systems for the best chances at finding fish. Areas around the Bodalla bridge up to snake flat and bumbo creek are all options that can be explored by boat as well as on foot. I know a few anglers that have started to sight bigger schools of whiting over the flats this week, so it may be time to start prospecting these schools with a few surface lures. Jackson Pygmy pop, Bassday Suga pens, or any surface presentations can do the trick. That is unless they are locked in on squirt worms! Fingers xed they are keen for a surface bite!! Rock and beach. As last week, there is not a lot to report on the beaches this week, with the salmon still not around in any great numbers. I would try scaling your gear back and trying to find a few bream and whiting in close. Live worms if you are skilled enough to catch them will be the gun bait, frozen pipis are also an option, as are live nippers. Unfortunately, buying frozen beach worms is and will be off the cards for a while, as Tweed baits just can’t get any, and haven’t been able to for at least 2 months now, the same can be said for the small school or bottle squid. We are not sure why this is, but we are doing the best we can to offer you with alternative options. Offshore. Not a great deal to report this week, as the 3+m swells and inclement weather this last week have kept most boaties safe at home. But as is the case after most big blows, things get stirred up, and in turn can turn the fishing on. I will wait to hear what you get up to on the weekend. Please let us know, as we rely on your reports to let everyone know what’s happening. Even better if you can send in some pics, of your catches. We love seeing how you go, as do our readers.
