Local Fishing Report 28/1/10

Thursday, January 28, 2010 by tackleworldmoruya

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

Moruya River - Team Tackle World Moruya members Nathan and Graham launched out this afternoon off town wharf and were rewarded with a successful catch and release session of bream and perch up river with the SSX40's proving to be the smartest choice for more frequent and larger catches.  Nathan has also been reeling in great numbers of flathead down the front of the system on Berkley Gulp Ghost Shrimp - exclusive to Tackle World stores.  

Tuross Lakes - Extra large flathead have been coming out of the woodworks recently with the most notable catch being a 95cm lizard photographed and released by the Lush family.  Our recommendation for these larger catches is Berkley Gulp 5 inch Nuclear Chicken and Squidgie Pro 100mm Podys.  Plenty of tailor, bream and whiting are smashing surface lures around the edges and flats of the system with the lure of choice being the C'ultiva Gobo Poppers. 

Rocks and Beaches - The beaches are continuing to provide great catches of bream, whiting, salmon, tailor and drummer in both the gutters and the headlands, however, conditions haven't been very favourable of late so make sure you check it out before you head out for a session.  Call in advance to secure your tubs of live beach worms now as they are continuing to be extremely popular with both the fisherman and the fish! 

Offshore - Captain Ron Ingram from Winda Woppa Fishing Charters reports large catches of snapper, mowies between 350-450mm and nannyguai between 300-400mm.  The flathead, however, have started to slow down a bit this week, with an increase in the size of kingies making up for it.  Bait of choice for all these species is fishbait and squid, with a mild current and 22 degree water temperature ensuring lovely fishing conditions.  Team Tackle World Moruya would like to congratulate Ron on his 60th birthday which has just passed and we wish him many, many more.

Tight lines,

Team Tackle World Moruya
