Fishing Report, 4/3/2011

Hi everyone - hope you have all enjoyed a great weeks fishing.  This is whats been happening down here.

Moruya & Tuross Rivers

Moruya - Good numbers of bream are being caught on both shallow diving hard body lures, like the ever-popular SX40's and lightly weighted softplastics.  These fish are down around the "hole in the wall" as well as over the weedbeds in the centre of the river.  There are also some nice luderick and whiting being caught around the same vicinity - best bait would be live beach worms or "nippers".  Flathead and flounder are also being caught from Quarry Wharf down to Garlandtown - try using live "poddies" for these fish.

Tuross - great catches of flathead and big bream are being caught on both bait and soft plastics, inparticular Gulp 3" Nuclear Chicken.  You will find these fish from the front of the system up to the four-ways.  Whiting are also being caught on live beach worms (in store now) as well as surface lures with the Sebile "splasher" or the Jazz "Zapper" working a treat  - get up onto the flats for these yummy tasting fish!

Rocks and beaches

Good catches of drummer and luderick are being caught off most headlands around the area on cunji and peeled prawns with the ever present salmon, tailor and bonito still chasing metal slices and ganged pillies.  Beaches - bream, whiting, flathead and salmon are being caught in the gutters off the local beaches - get out early and fish the high tide with live beach worms for best results.

Offshore

Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa I and II reports brilliant catches of snapper in all depths of water between Moruya thru to Tuross, along with flathead in the 40 metre mark off Coila.  Mowies, gummy sharks, school sharks, pigfish and kingfish are all being caught straight off the front of Moruya.  For best results use a sea anchor to slow your drift down and Ron's bait of the week - fish bait.  The water temperature is a nice 22 degrees celcius and everything looks set for a great weekends fishing!!

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