Moruya River

Team Gone Fishin' member Cruizer enjoyed a nice morning on Moruya River with good catches of Flathead on both soft plastics and hard bodied lures down the front of the system.  If you're partial to squid, then get on the river and enjoy a good catch, as there are quite a few about at the moment.  The water is nice and clean and the temperature around the 18 degree mark.


Graham and Gaye launched at the main ramp and enjoyed a good catch and release session on Tailor - there are literally hundreds of them!!, flathead - on Gulp Alive rootbeer, estuary perch on SX40's and bream on Atomic Hardz.  Team Gone Fishin' member Evan also enjoyed a nice morning with both estuary perch and flathead on fly and Atomic Guzzlerz.

You had to pick your places to fish as the wind was quite uncomfortable at times.

One other thing - never underestimate the value of a good pair of sunnies when your fishing - Gaye's choice Blueye's and Graham's - Spotters!

Beaches & Rocks

The seas aren't doing anyone any favours at the moment, so please keep off the rocks and wait for the seas to subside.


As stated the seas are quite large at the moment, however Captain Ron was able to get out early  this week and enjoyed good catches of Snapper, Mowies, extra large Nannygai, flathead and chinamen leatherjackets off Broulee in the 50 m mark.  The next day Ron headed straight off Moruya in 40 m of water and scored Snapper, Gummy sharks, the occasional flathead and good mowongs.

Bait of choice was Mackeral and Tuna Fillets, with your best bet being to anchor up and burley as the slime has increased again.  However, the system will improve and we look forward to a good week of fishing next week.

Have a great weeks fishing everyone and happy holidays to those kids enjoying the break!
