Fishing Report, 22/10/2010

Thursday, October 21, 2010 by tackleworldmoruya

A big hello to everyone from here on Hamilton Island!  Unfortunately, we've experienced winds up here for the last few days so there's no fishing report from the Whitsunday's, however down home has proved to be rewarding.  Here goes for this weeks report.

Moruya River

Extremely good catches of bream and flathead have been had this week, both up around the hospital and down towards the front of the system.  Try the new Berkley 3B Crank Puppy Dog, also available in Fat Dog shallow or deep diver.  Reports of big perch are also being had from above the hospital around the boulders using Squidgy Pro Wrigger Bloodworm 80 mm.  Head further upstream for some absolute cracker bass being caught and released at the moment on surface poppers.


Good catches are still being had throughout the whole system, with much the same results as Moruya River at the moment.  All in all great fishing is being had!

Rocks & Beaches

Good catches of tailor and flathead have been reported off the "wall" on pillies, with both salmon and tailor off the windsock as well.  Good reports of bream have also been reported on the southern side of the Tuross entrance.


Captain Ron reports good catches of snapper in 20 metres of water off both fish bait and Shimano Lucanis jigs.  Head out to the 40-50 metre mark to be rewarded with flathead, gummy  sharks, chinamen jackets and good mowies, with the occasional pigfish thrown in.  The water temperature is sitting at 16.4 degrees celcius at the moment, with a mild current running necessitating the use of a sea anchor.

Remember, we are now open Sundays until 12.30 pm for your convenience.  Drop in and say g'day and remember "every day's a good day for fishing ... "
