Moruya River

Quite a few reports of Flathead being back on the "chew" have been in this week which is good news for everyone!  Try prawns or fresh nippers down the front of the system.  Luderick are also plentiful at the moment on greenweed or nippers around the weedbeds both in Moruya and Tomago systems.

Tuross River

We launched Sunday morning from the main boat ramp and headed into the leases for a "rack attack"!  Lure of the day was Lucky Craft Shingo winning out over the others on a productive catch and release session.  After this, we headed into deeper water and threw out some StrikePro Vibes to pick up Bream and Tailor.  Flathead are also responding well to soft plastics in the shallows.

Rocks and Beaches

Good catches of Salmon, Tailor, Drummer, Blue Groper and Bream are still being had both up and down the coastline.  The Salmon are favouring "anchovies" over the "pillies" at the moment,  while still responding well to metal slices.


Head out into the 60 metre mark where the water is a warm 18 degrees celcius.  Here you should find yourself some nice catches of Snapper.  Once you've found these guys, kellick up and burley and then throw some Gulp Nuclear Chicken 5" Jerk Shads down the burley trail for best results.  You should be rewarded with some nice catches of Mowies and Nannygai using this technique.  If you're after Flathead try drifting in the same area, using either Squid or soft plastics, inparticular the Gulp 5" Jerk Shad "Glow".

Drop in store for a "chat" and a cuppa!  We currently have a special on all Lucky Craft Lures, where if you purchase any 2 you receive a free DVD titled Hard Copy Volume 1.  

Enjoy the week fishing, especially in this mild winter weather we're experiencing at the moment.
