Tackle World Moruya - Fishing Report

Hey guys!

Sorry for the lack of fishing reports, the silly season has had us run off our feet.

Moruya River

Whiting are being caught on the sand flats on surface lures, specifically Strada Virals and Chaos. The river is also producing some nice size flathead and bream, which are hitting both soft plastics and hard bodies. The prawns are running so make sure you're stocked up on prawning nets and lights.


Flatties are around and biting aggressively, taking well to the soft plastics and deep diving hard bodies. However, a great deal of these fish are undersize, so make sure you check your measurements! Reports of catches around the 60cm mark are quite common. Tackle World members John (Junior) and John (Senior) enjoyed a good session on Thursday down from the Steel Bridge using SX40s. Tackle World team member Jade caught and released an 80cm flathead on blood worm wrigglers in the Four Ways, which are also producing good bream and perch, responding best to Strada Badgers.

Beaches and Rocks

The salmon are popping up everywhere up and down the coast, so you can't go wrong with throwing out ganged pillies or Armor Anchovies at your beach of choice. Tackle World team member John (Senior) has been catching plenty of flathead, bream and whiting off Congo beach on fresh beach worms. If you're not trained in the art of catching beach worms, secure yourself a tub in store. Hurry though, they're going fast so you're safest to ring ahead and get the staff to put one aside for you.


Reports of nice kingfish have been coming in, with the lure of choice being Knife Jigs or live bait. Good sized snapper and tiger flathead have also been had, responding best to fish bait. If you're fishing in close, however, try throwing out some soft plastics. The water temperature is currently 19.7 degrees, consistent with a recent warming up. Congo has been producing squid on IKA Squid Jigs.


The Christmas catalogue is still running, so get in store to bag yourself a post-Christmas bargain!
