Local Fishing Reports 4/2/10

Hey guys, here goes for this weeks fishing report

Moruya River

Flathead!  Flathead!  and MORE Flathead!  These guys are everywhere at the moment with both bait and soft plastics - especially Gulp - working well.  Whiting, Bream and Perch are also to be found with the Bream prefering soft plastics and the Perch taking a liking to small diving lures and surface lures or live nippers for the Whiting.


Once again large numbers of Flathead are being caught around the lake and up around Bumbo.  Soft plastics in the Gulp variety are working the best.  Young Lachy caught and released a nice 75 cm Flattie - good on you Lachy for a great catch and even better a great release!!  The edges of the system are still wokring well on surface lures - poppers being the best when you have a slight breeze.

Rocks and Beaches

Excellent catches of Tailor,  Salmon, Bream, Flathead and Whiting are being caught aorund the Airport beach and Congo area.  Salmon and Tailor respond best to  Pilchards on a Patanosta rig with a surf popper on the top.  For  the Bream, Whiting and Flathead try beach worms or pipis!


Captain Ron aboard Winda-Whopper reports some really nice Snapper around the 40 m mark with good catches of Mowies and Flathead in the 50 m range, and prolific numbers of gummy sharks out in 60 m of water.  Thank goodness some nice and legal Kingies are showing up in 50m of water - be patient these guys are really hugging the bottom.
