Fishing Report, 3 August 2012

Moruya River

The water is still crystal clear, so as we stated last week, downsize your leaders and fish with plenty of stealth.

Town Wharf in Moruya is undergoing some upgrading, so the ramp is not available for use for about the next week.  If you'd like to fish the river you'll have to head to either North Head ramp or Preddies Wharf.

Tuross

We have just gotten off the water, and what a great mornings session in the racks!!  Make sure you head to our facebook page in the next couple of days to view these big beautiful bream (all released).  After trying the Strada Badger 40 mm deep divers and noticing that the bream were a little skittish I changed back to the ever reliable Squidgy 80 mm Bloodworm Wrigglers in the Pro Range to get absolutely hammered with bream after bream hitting these guys hard!

There are still plenty of flathead further upstream also responding well to soft plastics at the moment.  Good catches of luderick are also being enjoyed, with salmon and tailor coming on the chew with the rising tide.

The boat ramp at Steel bridge (on the highway) will also be undergoing some upgrading with the ramp being shut down for approximately the next three weeks - this means the only available ramp into Tuross is the main one which necessitates you heading out at high tide as it is very shallow on the low.

Beaches and Rocks

There have been some rather large seas this week, however the salmon are still in the gutters with the seas forecast to be dropping.

Offshore

Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa I and II reports good catches of snapper, mowies, large pigfish, flathead along with gummy and 7-gill sharks all out in 50-65 metres of water.  The current water temperature is sitting at 14.4 degrees celcius.  Please note that there is a large swell running so as always please check bar conditions before heading out.

Moruya River

Those luderick are still hanging around down near the breakwall, while small flathead are lurking in 3 metres of water just down from the moored boats.  Having just got back from a mornings session we noted that the water is now crystal clear, so it's time to downsize your leaders and fish with plenty of stealth.

Team Tackle World member Nathan headed up river and was rewarded with a by-catch of Bass which measured 45 cm to the fork.  Nathan took some pics before letting this one go and will post them on our facebook page for your enjoyment.

Tuross

We haven't had many reports in this week from Tuross - unfortunately, we haven't been able to get out and our regular suppliers of info haven't been able to contact us via e-mail as our e-mail is currently undergoing tantrum attacks on a regular basis!  You can be assured that the ever-present flathead will be around as well as some nice bream around the racks.

Beaches and Rocks

Team Tackle World member Nathan headed down to Pedro this morning and was rewarded with five good sized drummer and two bream - all caught on cunji.  Nathan is once more heading for a dive this 'arvo to make sure those lobbies are still around.

Offshore

Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa I and II reports good catches of flathead and lots of them in the 20 metre mark along with snapper and mowies off the front of Moruya using both soft plastics and fish bait.  Catches of gummy sharks and chinamen leather jackets were also had. The water temperature is currently sitting at 14.4 degrees celcius.

Fishing Report, 20 July 2012

Friday, July 20, 2012 by tackleworldmoruya

Moruya River

There are currently plenty of luderick around at the moment, with Team Tackle World member Mark catching a nice feed and then coating them in Fog Dog batter for one very enjoyable meal!

A warm thank you to Liam who has posted some excellent photos of his catches on our facebook page.  Keep 'em coming Liam!

Tomakin

Bream, bream and more bream!!  These fish were so thick that you could have actually walked across them from one side of the river to the other.  On the down side, they wouldn't touch a thing that was thrown at them!

Tuross

Team Tackle World members Tom and Jade enjoyed a great catch and release session the other day releasing a multitude of flathead, however most were on the small side.  After playing with the flathead, the boys hit the salmon with Tom using Squidgy Flickbaits Yakka and Pillies with great success down deep, while Jade cranked the Arma Twisty's back along the surface at great speed for great hook ups with salmon jumping left, right and centre - a great time was had using light bream gear.

Beaches and Rocks

Salmon are still being caught off most beaches, in particular the Windsock and Potato Point with the tailor having slowed slightly at the moment.

Team Tackle World member Nathan has been enjoying the unusually warmer weather for this time of year and benefitting with a lobster meal or two after diving around the headlands.

Offshore

Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa I and II reports good catches of flathead and lots of them in the 35 metre mark off the front of Moruya using both soft plastics and squid.  Ron then headed out to the 45 metre mark for catches of snapper, mowies, heaps of gummies and pigfish.  The water temperature is currently sitting at 14.4 degrees celcius with a very mild drift - bar conditions are good!

Fishing Report, 13 July 2012

Friday, July 13, 2012 by tackleworldmoruya

Moruya River

Team Tackle World members Nathan and Juzz had fun with the bream the other day catching and releasing good numbers up around the 38-40 cm mark.  Nathan and Juzz were using the new Strada Viral 70 mm (also available in 50 mm) surface walker.  Head to our facebook page for the pics!

Tuross

VIP member Noel enjoyed a great session this week catching and releasing large amounts of flathead.  Noel found that the flatties were most active on the still water in between tides, successfully landing a fish a cast.  Noel's soft plastic of choice - Squidgy Red Rum Wrigglers.  Large amounts of flathead and luderick are also to be found in the upper reaches of Tuross on Z-Man Grubs 2.5" Chartreuse and Watermelon.

Beaches and Rocks

Salmon and Tailor are still being brought in off most of the beaches both up  and down the coastline, with a huge school of Salmon sitting just off Mullimburra Point.

Offshore

VIP member Spider headed out for a fish during the week and landed some good snapper and mowong, with the occasional kingie thrown in.

Fishing Report 6/7/2012

Friday, July 06, 2012 by tackleworldmoruya

Moruya River

Ryans creek down to the flats opposite Preddy's Wharf is producing some nice flathead being caught on soft plastics.  Try the hole in the wall and inside it on the high tide for large bream which are responding best to the new Strada Badger 40mm deep divers.

 

Tuross

VIP member Tom and his cousin Tim have been catching large numbers of flathead on soft plastics and large tailor on Arma metal slices down the front of Tuross.  Nathan and Juzz have been putting the canoe in the small creeks catching huge bream on the new Strada Viral lures.  These surface lures are similar to the Sugar Pens, but are at half the price.  Be quick because these won't last long.

 

Beaches and Rocks

Salmon and large tailor are being caught off the beach near the wind sock on both salted pilchards with a surf popper and metal slices.  Just inside the break wall in the river you will find big leather jackets and luderick.

 

Offshore

Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa I and II found mowies, pigfish, leather jackets and jack ass mowies out and around 50 metres of water.  The kingfish are being caught on fish bait and squid.  Snapper are biting around the 10-20 metres of water - search for the floating cuttlefish and cast Lucanus jigs around them for the bigger catches.

Fishing Report, 29 June 2012 (3)

Friday, June 29, 2012 by tackleworldmoruya

Moruya River

Nice catches of bream are being had from the "moored" boats down towards the front of the system, with some nice luderick in around the hole in the wall and the rockwall. Good flathead are being caught by drifting from Quarry Wharf down towards the front throwing soft plastics in and around the weed beds.

Tuross

VIP member Noel headed back onto the water and enjoyed a great catch and release session (20 flatties in total and all around the 40-50 cm mark) using Squidgy Bloodworm 100 mm.  Noel took an "old caravan friend" out and gave him a lesson in soft plastic fishing, needless to say this guy is now hooked enjoying himself immensely.

Grab your light bream gear and enjoy some great catches of salmon while having a ball.  These fish are being caught from the front of the system around to the boat shed.  You must fish the incoming tide for best results here.

Beaches and Rocks

VIP member Ross headed out off Meringo for some very nice catches of salmon, tailor and bream.  The salmon are BIG and in PLAGUE proportions with every cast landing a fish.  For best results use Arma Twisties, Anchovies or Metalic slices. 

Team Tackle World members Nathan and Juzz once more hit Goulburn Workers for a great session, along with VIP member Cruizer also enjoying catches in the middle of the day!  The majority of these salmon are between 3-4 kg in size.

Offshore

Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa I and II found some brilliant Kingies right out the front of Moruya in 40-50 m of water.  For best results try using River2Sea jigs.

Mowies, pigfish and snapper were also caught in 50 metres of water with Mako's and gummies being landed in 60 m.  Nice flathead were also caught in 30 metres of water.  The water temperature is currently running at 16.4 degrees Celsius.

Have a great week everyone and remember everyday's a good day for fishing!

Moruya River

Moruya River is still fishing well, with Team Tackle World VIP member Tom enjoying some great sessions off Moruya Bridge of an evening landing nice flathead, tailor and bream all on Squidgy Bloodworm soft plastics.  Head around to the "moored" boats for some good catches of bream.

Tuross

Team Tackle World member Noel finally got to launch his boat after major heart problems for the past 8 months to enjoy a great catch and release session on flathead, catching 29 with six being around 42 cm, one 60 cm and a 68 cm.  All fish were caught on Squidgy Wrigglers Red Rum.  Great to see you back on the water Noel!! 

Beaches and Rocks

Their back and working a treat!!  Team Tackle World members Nathan and Juzz headed down to Goulburn Workers the other afternoon and caught 60 plus large Salmon (thrown back) between 3-4 kg, all within a 2.5 hour session on Arma Anchovies!  VIP member Cruiser also headed out early in the morning and enjoyed a similar experience.

Drummer is still being brought in off the headlands as well as good sized tailor as well. 

Offshore

Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa I and II headed out on Wednesday to enjoy good catches of snapper and mowies all within the 40-45 metre mark.  The water temperature is currently sitting at 16.5 degrees celsius with a slight northerly current running. Team Tackle World member Spider headed out on Monday and once again sat off Pedro for some excellent catches of Snapper off both fish bait and Shimano Lucanus Jigs.

Keep an eye out for our new "facebook" page - we just have to figure out how to use it!!

Have a great week everyone and remember "everyday's a good day for fishing ..... "

Moruya River & Tuross

The recent rains have done us all a favour with Moruya River actually on "fire".  Good catches of big tailor, nice flathead in big numbers, trevally and bream around the Bridge area.  Head down towards the breakwall for good catches of Luderick with Team Tackle World member Spider enjoying a great session last weekend.

Tuross is still seeing good catches of flathead around the 60 cm mark being caught on Squidgy Lobbies.  VIP member Tom also caught and released some nice bream caught on Strada Tragic 40's.

Beaches and Rocks

The only bad news at the moment, I'm afraid the beaches haven't had a chance to re-group just yet, so unfortunately we won't be able to have any fresh beach worms in store.  However, as soon as everything calms down we'll once again be stocking them and will let you know when.

One consolation, our ever-present drummer of late are still being brought in off the headlands, in particular around the Moruya area.

Offshore

Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa I and II unfortunately hasn't been able to venture out this week, however Team Tackle World member Spider headed out and sat off Pedro for some excellent catches of Snapper off both fish bait and Shimano Lucanus Jigs.

We should have some good pics coming in once Graham gets back from his fishing expedition in a remote area off Papua New Guinea - should have them ready for next weeks website - keep an eye out!!

Have a great week everyone and remember "everyday's a good day for fishing ..... "

Local Fishing Report

I'm afraid with the extreme weather conditions we copped this week (along with the rest of eastern NSW) the fishing report is very limited.  The good news is that prior to the wind, rain, torrential storms, etc the fishing was good with Captain Ron enjoying a good session straight off the front of Moruya last weekend with catches of snapper, gummmies and flathead in 50 metres of water, as well as some nice albacore also being caught whilst trolling.  The water temperature at the time was 17 degrees celcius, and Ron has some vacancies for this Monday if you'd like to book a place.

Now that the seas have abated it should bode well for this weekend as great new gutters form along the beaches.  Salmon are still being caught (yesterday) on Arma Twisty and Metallic Metal Slices.  Moruya and Tuross should once again produce some nice flathead and bream, with Coila Lake now being opened to the ocean!

Enjoy the long weekend everyone and hopefully we'll have a better report for next week!

Have a great week everyone and remember "everyday's a good day for fishing ..... "

Fishing Report, 1 June 2012

Friday, June 01, 2012 by tackleworldmoruya

  

Moruya River & Tuross

Moruya River has some very nice bream swimming around at the moment, in particular towards the front of the system and around Preddies Wharf and near the Breakwall - these areas are also producing good catches of luderick as well.

Don't forget that the perch and bass system has now closed, so if you mistakenly catch one of these guys as a by-catch it has to go straight back to where it came from.

There are still plenty of flatties in Tuross, however as we stated in the last fishing report, a lot of the fish are small, but with a bit of persistence you do find nice pan sizes in between.

Beaches and Rocks

The beach at Tuross is producing some excellent catches of Salmon at the moment with Nathan and Juzz landing some nice catches as well as Team Tackle World member Jade, and Junior Tackle World Munchkin Lachlan landing a nice 68 cm Salmon!!

The rocks are still working a treat for good catches of drummer being pulled in off peeled prawns or cunji.  Most headlands are working well with the boys being busted off on quite a few occasions.

Offshore

Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa I and II reports good catches of Snapper and Mowong off Moruya, with gummies being plentiful and good pigfish as well. 
Ron then headed straight off Broulee Surfclub in 20 metres of water to land some excellent catches of flathead.  The water temperature is currently sitting at a cool 17.2 degrees celcius with a mild current running.

Have a great week everyone and remember "everyday's a good day for fishing ..... "
