Fishing Report 27/1/12

Friday, January 27, 2012 by tackleworldmoruya

Hey guys,

Here goes for this week's fishing report.


Moruya River -

The Bridge has been fishing extremely well during the night, with large flathead and perch attracted to 100mm Red Rum Squidgy Wrigglers.  Tackle World Moruya members Nathan and Justine had a very successful session for bream on poppers along the Rockwall and perch around the boulders.  Garland town provided Tackle World Moruya members Mark, Angus and Nelly with numerous catches of whiting, which responded best to live beach worms.  If it's the luderick you're after, throwing out some greed weed at the Hole in the Wall is your best bet.


Tuross -

The shallow water around the flats is providing large amounts of flathead and whiting (being caught on beach worms); however, the sizes are in the majority below legal, so best to get your ruler out if you're fishing for dinner.  When fishing the deeper holes, both bait and soft plastics are proving very effective for jewfish.  Around the back of the system, if you're fishing for bream it's best to cast SX40's and Crankstas into the snags.  Tackle World Moruya members Nathan and Justine continue to use Crankas and Cameons successfully to reel in large catches of bass up the river.


Rocks and Beaches -

The ever-present salmon remain in the gutters on the beaches, responding best to salted pilchards and live beach worms.  Tackle World Moruya member John reports that Congo beach is fishing quite well for whiting on beach worms, however, the bream have been consistently small - so it's best to throw these ones back.  Casting around the rock wall will reward you with tailor, which are hitting metal slices.  If you're hungry for some salt and pepper squid throw out some UV Blast Squid Jigs off Congo and prepare for a fantastic seafood dinner!


Offshore -

Captain Ron aboard Winda Woppa I and II reports the larger kingfish are being caught around the 50m of water mark off the bottom on live bait and squid.  In a bit closer at the 25m mark, snapper up to 5kg are hitting fish bait and Lucanus jigs early in the morning - the early fisho catches the snapper, as they generally go off the bite as the sun rises higher in the sky.  Back out in the deep - 60m of water - the pigfish and extra large nannygai are responding best to fish bait, pilchards and squid.  Tackle World Moruya VIP member Spider reports large kingfish are responding best to live bait off Pedro.  As there is a mild current running the use of a sea anchor is advisable. 


Good luck -

Tackle World Moruya wishes good luck to the competitors of the Southern Squidgy Bream Series, of which Tackle World Moruya is proud to be a major sponsor.


Tight lines,

Team Tackle World Moruya
