Local Fishing Report 22/1/10

Friday, January 22, 2010 by tackleworldmoruya

Hey guys,

Here goes for this week's fishing report:

Moruya River - Great amounts of flathead are being caught in the deeper water of the system on River 2 Sea Glassie Vib50's with a slow retrieve proving most successful.  Live beach worms are still proving extremely popular with the bait fishermen as large whiting and bream have been smashing their rigs around Preddy's Wharf.  Reports of perch under Moruya Bridge in the late afternoons have been flooding in with the lure of choice being by far the SX40's in colour #350.  Team Tackle World Moruya member Matt launched out of Preddy's Wharf this week and was rewarded with great catches of flathead and whiting on Bushy's Stiffys Poppers in the Favourite colour variety.

Tuross Lakes - The Tuross Fishing Club's children's fishing competition last Sunday was a huge success, with 140 under 16's registering and participating.  Tackle World Moruya, along with Shimano, are proud to have been involved through sponsorship in this competition and hope to see this event become tradition.  Large flathead up to 3.36kg, bream to 1.2kg and 40cm whiting were among the highlights of Tuross this week, with both lures and bait proving highly effective.  Monday night saw Team Tackle World Moruya member Graham and Shimano Pro Angler Mark Dunphy have a rewarding afternoon session with the Squidgie Pro Lobby's and Bushy's Stiffy Divers outshining the other lures with the largest catches.  Team Tackle World Moruya member Nathan had a great session in his canoe with half a dozen bass to 44cm and 4 bream to 40cm being caught on the River 2 Sea Baby Rovers.

Rocks and Beaches - The salmon and tailor are still swimming around, with the largest catches responding best to Surecatch Knights metal slices and for the bait fisherman, live beach worms and pilchards.

Offshore - Captain Ron aboard Winda Woppa Fishing Charters reports an all round fantastic week of outside fishing, with a load of snapper, mowies, nannyguai, kingies - but watch out for all the rats getting around - with the most effective jigs proving to be the Lucanis and Samaki jigs.  Plenty of flathead are also being caught around the sand.  The catch of the week goes out to Lachland who reeled in a beautiful 10kg snapper on fishbait - if you want to take a look for yourself, a photo of Lachlan and his snapper can be found in the Local Fishing section of Tackle World Moruya's Photo Gallery at www.tackleworldmoruya.com.au.  The water temperature is averaging around 22 degrees latey, with the majority of the fish being caught in 40m-60m of water.
