Local Fishing Report, 4/12/09

Friday, December 11, 2009 by Administrator

Hey guys here goes for this week's fishing report,

Moruya River - Excellent catches of flathead and bream down the front have been caught on Red Belly and Gold Top Stiffy Poppers, with the bream also responding well to Vibes in the deeper water.  Large numbers of whiting are being caught on beach worms and fresh nippers up the top of Moruya, past Yarragee. 

Tuross - Team Tackle World Moruya members Mark and Daniel had a great catch and release session all week using Gillies Poppers, rewarded with bream, tailor and small reddies.  The flathead and flounder were also on the chew, being caught mainly on Gulp 2 inch Banana Prawns and Nuclear Chicken 2 inch Shrimp.  Team Tackle World Moruya Member Graham went down Friday morning and had a fantastic session on Flitters Walk The Dog style lure and Stiffy Poppers in the Favourite variety, rewarded with 7 bream to 36cm and unfortunately lost some large flathead at the side of the boat.  The fish are quite timid at the moment, so for best results use a long, light leader if you head out.

Rocks and Beaches - Not much to report this week due to the rough seas, however, when the seas settle down the salmon, bream and whiting are all sure to be in the newly formed gutters.  Bream and drummer will be found around the headlands using either cunji or peeled prawns.

Offshore - Captain Ron from Winda Woppa Fishing Charters reports great catches of snapper on Lucanus Jigs in between 40 and 80m of water.  Large numbers of good sized flathead are being caught off the sand on fishbait.  With the current running quickly at the moment, throw out a sea anchor to slow you down.

Head in store now to take advantage of the Tackle World Summer Sale Catalogue for great savings, friendly advice and local knowledge.
