Fishing Report, 29/4/2011

Friday, April 29, 2011 by tackleworldmoruya

Hi Guys - hope everyone enjoyed their Easter break!  Here's whats been going on down here.

Moruya River

Trolling around the Quarry Wharf area using Arma Anchovy lures will secure some nice catches of tailor at the moment, with good numbers of flathead, bream, trevally and luderick around the Preddies Wharf area as well.  Small diving lures or live bait will work the trick on these guys.


Those BIG bream are still around with Graham and John once more enjoying a great catch and release session yesterday with bream measuring up to 42 cm to the fork of the tail.  These fish could not resist the Sebile Cranksters as well as the Shimano Lure Project in the "fat body".  That evening, Graham also sat down to a very tasty meal of freshly caught mud crabs!

If tailor is more to your liking, these guys were around in nuisance (plague) proportions, trying to steal our Cranksters before the bream could attack!!  So all in all a great mornings fishing even if we did endure some rain - not enough to spoil the fun we were having though!

Rocks and Beaches

Some very nice catches of drummer are being brought in along the headlands both up and down the coast on peeled prawns.

Moruya's breakwall is still fishing well with catches of large salmon, bream and bonito with the occasional tailor thrown in.

Large swells are predicted along the Coast for the next few days, so please be careful if you're heading out!


Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa I and II reports good catches of "reds" out in the 50 metre mark.  The water temperature is currently sitting at a pleasant 22 degrees celcius.  Heading back closer to shore (35 metre mark) Ron came across an abundance of nice flathead using both fresh bait and soft plastics.  Catches of mowies, large pigfish, gummy sharks and bronze whalers (limit of 1) were also secured.

Make sure you drop in store this weekend to secure your purchase from our Easter Catalogue as it is now in its last days and stocks are extremely limited!!

And remember "every day's a good day for fishing ... "
