Fishing Report, 11/3/11

Friday, March 11, 2011 by tackleworldmoruya

Hey Guys - hope everyone is well.  We enjoyed a great weeks fishing with some really good results.  Here goes for this weeks report.

Moruya and Tuross Rivers

Tuross proved the place to be on Wednesday, when we decided to try the "racks" for a great catch and release session - and boy we were not disappointed.  I don't think I've ever heard the bream so vocal - the "slurping" as they fed around the leases was near deafening.  Gaye proved the worth of the Sebile Crankster, while Graham was successful  with a deeper diving Camion, and then once leaving the "racks" changed to a Sebile "splasher" with good results.  We had an extremely good mornings fishing with catches of bream, tailor (which became quite annoying as they were thick in numbers, but fun to catch), whiting and flathead. 

Further down towards the front of the system Gaye's parents took their trusty live beach worms and caught a nice feed of flathead and whiting for dinner that night for Ash Wednesday!  All this action and we were only on the water for around two and a half hours!!  Hopefully we'll be able to venture out this weekend as well.

Moruya has seen good catches of flathead, bream, whiting, luderick and tailor all being caught down around the Preddies Wharf area mainly on fresh bait, but don't be scared to throw some lures around.  Stay close to structure like the rockwall or weedbeds for best results.  Estuary perch are being caught above the bridge and around to Yarragee with an early mornings start your best bet - use a variety of surface and diving lures to secure your catch.

Rocks and Beaches

Meringo is fishing extremely well for large salmon at the moment with locals being "busted" off left, right and centre.  Good numbers of bream are also being caught around Pedro Point and Goulburn Workers using live beach worms.  Salmon and tailor are also in the gutters with ganged pillies and metal slices working a treat.  The Breakwall is still producing good catches of salmon, tailor and bonito with some "lost" cobia being brought in on pillies.


Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa I and II reports good catches of snapper in 50 metres of water using fish bait and squid.  A move closer in to the 35 metre mark saw good numbers of tiger flathead, gummy sharks, pigfish, leatherjackets, mowies and the occasional school  shark.  There is an extremely strong current running at the moment, so the use of a sea anchor to slow down the drift is essential.  The water temperature is currently sitting at 22.2 degrees celcius.

Keep an eye out in store for the new range of Tackle World Ice Boxes arriving soon!

Enjoy a great weeks fishing everyone and remember "everyday's a good day for fishing ... "
