Moruya River

From Quarry Wharf down there has been some really nice whiting on the chew thanks to the recent warmer weather on both fresh bait and Berkley Power Baits.  The flathead are being caught on salted pilchards and soft plastics.  Bream and luderick are being caught around the Hole in the Wall on freshly pumped nippers.  The bass have come on the chew above the pump station and they're responding best to Jazz Spinner Baits.


Sunday morning saw a profitable catch and release session for Graham for black bream on C'ultiva Bug Eye in the Baby Frog variety, colour #57 and tailor, bream and whiting on SX40's.  Thursday saw Graham and Dave Butfield from Hooked on Tackle World enjoy a great catch and release session for bream on Berkley MF40's Soft Plastic Vibe and flathead on SX40's and Berkley Gulp Nuclear Chicken 5 inch Jerk Shads.  If you're thinking of fishing this system however, it may be best to stay down the front as the dirty water from up river has made its way to the majority of the system due to rainy weather.

Rocks and Beaches

Plenty of bream are being caught in the gutters on Race Course Airport Beach on beach worms with the occasional salmon on pillies.  Shelley Beach is producing some nice flathead in the wash zone with salted pilchards and mullet strips the baits of choice.  The headlands are still thriving with drummer and bream on cunji.


Capt Ron from Winda Woppa Fishing Charters reports good catches of flathead, mowies, nannygui, school sharks, some snapper and kingies around the 40metre mark - however watch your size limit for the kingies as there are a lot of rats getting aroung at the moment with squid and fish bait proving most successful.  If you're headng out, throw out a sea anchor as the current is roaring.  Water temperature currently is a nice and temperant 20 degrees celcius.
