Moruya River

Head down to the front of the system for some nice catches of flathead, bream, luderick, tailor and squid.  Bait of choice prawns, salted pillies, whitebait or live nippers!!


The lake is starting to pick up from one end to the other with flathead being caught on soft plastics down the front and in the main lake.  Bream are around the leases and the snags up river.  The perch are tight in the snags but are patchy.  Small suspending lures like the Strike Pro Pigmy or the Lucky Craft Shingos are working well.  Try the Atomic 3" prongs on the flatties for best results.

Rocks and Beaches

Some salmon, trevally, bream and flathead are being caught in the gutters around the South Head and Congo area.  Good drummer and bream are also being caught off Congo rocks and the breakwall, with some salmon thrown in.  Best bait - pilchards, prawns, cunji and metal lures.


Captain Ron onboard Winda-Whopper reports some very good catches - when the weather has permitted - of snapper, mowies, gummy  sharks, nannygai, pigfish, flathead and extra large chinamen leatherjackets.  Ron recommends anchoring up in around the 40-50 metres of water mark and even out to 70 metres, burley up  with cubes of pilchards or tuna bait then fish with the same bait.  For a charter these school  holidays call Ron on 0404966607 or drop in to the store.

For those of you chasing snapper - try your luck with Gulp 5" and 7" Jerk Shads and also  the Shimano Lucanus jigs.

We are now  open until 1.00 pm on Sundays for your convenience.

Happy Holidays everyone and have a great time fishing!!
