Hey Guys - have enjoyed a great weeks fishing and hope you have too.  Here goes for this weeks report.

Moruya River

Some very nice flathead measuring 85 cm plus have been caught and released near the wall around Ryans Creek this week, all on Shimano Squidgies in assorted colours, but inparticular Silver Fox.

Good sizes of bream have also been landed near Quarry Wharf, once again all on Shimano squidgies.

Tuross River

Team Tackle World members Graham and John headed out for a few sessions this week and were rewarded with some really good catch and release sessions on bream, flathead and tailor up the back of the system.  Graham's lure of choice - SX40's - John's - Camions - both ended up even by the end of the session.

Jade and Tom enjoyed a good fish in the Pirtek competition last weekend, catching and releasing half a dozen flathead ranging from 60-85 cm in length.  Well done boys - we'll wait for the results to come in!!

Beaches and Rocks

Jack Dart from Sunset Fishing Adventures reports that the river mouth at Tuross is still producing both bream and whiting.  Jack recommends that you target the start of the run-in tide, fishing the washy areas running into the gutters - as the tide increases move to the gutters filling with more water.  Once the tide is full, target the sandbars as there will be enough water over them to hold fish, also throw some bait out just behind the shore dump.  A bit of a tip - stand well back from the shore so as not to spook the fish!

Salmon and tailor will be caught on pillies and ganged hooks from sun up or sundown in any good gutters.  Rig of the week - No 2 Instinct Baitkeeper hook on the top of a Paternoster rig using 15-20lb Instinct line and a 1/0 Owner hook on the bottom arm, with a medium star sinker working at the bottom using fresh beach worms.

Coila beach is really firing well at the moment with some beautiful gutters having formed with fisho's making the most of these conditions with good catches of bream, extra large tailor and 40 cm plus whiting.  Nice gutters have also formed around the Windsock area making for good catches for those extra large tailor that are around at the moment as well.


Capt Ron onboard Winda Woppa reports good catches of Snapper (over 30 in a session) in 21 metres of water using bait and Gulp Nuclear Chicken soft plastics.  Ron has also enjoyed good catches of mowies, while there are plenty of large flathead on the edge of the reef.  The water temperature is currently sitting at 19.8 degrees celcius.

Large flathead are also being brought in between Broulee Island and back to the Airport as well as chinamen leather jackets on the drift, however once that wind drops and the drift stops - so do the flathead!
