Fishing Report, 18/3/2011

Friday, March 18, 2011 by tackleworldmoruya

Hey Guys - hope everyone has enjoyed a good weeks fishing, unfortunately the weather here has gone from a beautiful sunny 28 degrees to an overcast and "yucky" 22 degrees.  However, here goes for this weeks report.

Moruya River

As Moruya has seen dirty water coming down from the hills, it is best to stick to the front of the system and fish the incoming tide for catches of bream, flathead, trevally and luderick - use fresh nippers, live poddies or live beach worms for best results.  Try throwing some small diving lures and metal slices where the clean seawater meets the "dirty" fresh water for some nice sized tailor.


Team Tackle World members John and Shirley report pretty much the same as Moruya, but get up on the sand flats after the tide has been pushing in for awhile for great catches of whiting, bream and flathead on live beach worms.  Throw a popper or "walk the dog" surface lure for some added excitement.

Beaches and Rocks

Team Tackle World member Nathan had some great fun yesterday afternoon while using live worms with his extra light Shimano bream combo and caught and released a host of bream, small flathead and extra large salmon with one fish taking 30 minutes to land and estimated at around 44 kg - what an effort!

An abundance of bait fish around the wall and headlands has brought in the salmon, tailor and bonito all still being caught early in the mornings using ganged pillies or metal slices.


Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa I and II suggests that you steer away from the "dirty" water line for catches of pigfish, snapper and mowies as well as gummy and school sharks.  All fish were caught on a variety of fish bait and squid.  He also came across great numbers of stripey tuna out on the shelf betwen Moruya and Tuross Canyons - the best thing is that with these little rockets come the Marlin.  Try trolling some skirts then switch baits to livies for best results.  Back in close Scott had a great time on light spin gear on "rat" kingies in 30 metres of water straight off the front of Moruya.

Get in store quick to secure your purchase of live beach worms and check out our new range of Fin-Nor rods and reels.

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