Local Fishing Report 23/12/09

Wednesday, December 23, 2009 by tackleworldmoruya

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

Moruya River - Great catches of flathead, bream and whiting are still being caught down the front, with the bait of choice for whiting being live beach worms and for the flathead and bream Gulp 3 inch Minnows.  The trevally are hanging around Town Wharf and are responding best to whitebait and hard body lures.  Up the back of the system, around Yarragee, nice catches of flathead and bream can be had on Bushy's Stiffy's. 

Tuross Lakes - Plenty of excellent sized flathead, bream and tailor are being caught over the majority of the lake, however, the estuary perch are remaining up the back of the system in the snags - suspending lures such as SX40's will do the trick for these species. 

Rocks and Beaches - A few salmon are still being caught off the wall on pilchards and metal slices.  Bream, whiting and flathead are all thriving along the beaches in the gutters, with the bait of choice being live beach worms.

Offshore - Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa fishing charters reports large numbers of snapper, mowies, pigfish and flathead out between 40-70m of water.  For best results on the snapper, throw out the Black Magic Snapper Snatchers with a little bit of fish bait as well - this will ensure you hook up more often on larger fish.  Please keep in mind the size and bag limit on the kingfish, as there are a lot of rats amongst the larger, legal, fish.

Graham's Tackle Tip of the Week: Team up a Shimano Jewel 6'8 one piece spin rod with a Shimano Sedona 1500 spooled with 5lb Power Pro and 7lb Instinct leader with a Cu'ltiva Goby Popper for action packed surface fun on bream, whiting and flathead.
