Hey guys!  Here goes for this week's fishing report:

Moruya - Moruya River with the weather cooling down as it has been is slowing down, but not to worry!  There are still some flathead down the front near the spur wall being caught on whitebait and soft plastics.  Bream and luderick are being all along the main wall below Preddie's Wharf with schools of tailor still pushing into the river.  For best results with tailor, stock up on metal slices.

Tuross - The lakes are providing consistent catches of flathead down the front over the Potato Point side on soft plastics, specifically the Squidgie Fish 4" Gary Glitter and Silver Fox, or if you're a Gulp fan, try the 5" Nuclear Chicken.  The main channel is holding an abundance of tailor presently, which are being caught on metal vibes with bream and perch pushing further up the system into the snags.  If it's the bream and perch you're after, try using unweighted soft plastics or a very slow retrieve diving minnow.

Rocks and Beaches - After the big seas, the salmon, tailor and bream are still being caught on all beaches, with some flathead thrown in the mix as well.  Bait of choice for these species are pilchards and fish bait for best results.  Drummer and good sized bream are being caught on all local headlands, weather permitting, with cunji and prawns proving most effective.  Why risk it?  Why not wear a self inflating PDF1 life jacket?  These are not obtrusive, worn like your average vest and will save your life so you can fish another day!

Offshore - Captain Ron from Winda Woppa fishing charters reports large mowies, pigfish, gummy and school sharks and some snapper out at the 50m water mark, all being caught on tuna fish bait.  Back in close some larger snapper are being caught on soft plastics, with the water temperature still running at over 20 degrees and a mild current.  Flathead are being caught in close off the windsock on fishbait with small yellowfin and marlin out in the canyons.

Tight Lines!
