Fishing Report, 24/2/12

Friday, February 24, 2012 by tackleworldmoruya

Hey guys,

Here goes for this week's fishing report

Moruya River and Tuross

Team Tackle World members Nathan and Justine have been at it again this time in Moruya river having some great sessions catching and releasing good numbers of flathead all being caught on Gulp soft plastics . Flatties are also being caught in Moruya from the Bridge down to Quarry wharf using live poddies as bait.  Meanwhile VIP member Tom landed his PB whiting, at 43 cm on instinct poppers. 

VIP members Paul and Murray have been fishing Tuross this week finding it to be a little tough, however  still catching some extraordinary large bream in both the deeper water and up on the flats with Paul catching and releasing his PB yellowfin bream at over  47 cm to the  fork - this particular fish was caught up in the shallows  on a hard bodied diving  Cranka lure. Great to hear TW Member Noel is starting to make a habit of being back on the water where he belongs .  His mate Ziggy took him out earlier in the week for great catches of smaller flathead (which were all released) some small pinkies, bream, tarwine, estuary perch to 45 cm and a small jewie all caught on Squidgy soft plastics. VIP member TJ has been having fun on both poppers and "walk the dog" surface lures catching and releasing some good numbers of whiting.

Due to the rain up in the mountains, the water in Tuross has now turned a little "murky", but will remain quite fishable all the same, especially if you stay down the front of the system and fish the incoming tide!

Rocks and Beaches -

The headlands along the coast are producing some nice catches of both bream and drummer off peeled prawns and red rock crabs.  The beaches have slowed a little this week but are still producing nice catches of whiting (be careful of the sizes), salmon and tailor.  If you like fishing for luderick, then head down to the entrance to Tuross and fish along the rocks for best results.

 Beach worms are back in store, so rush in and secure your tub of one of the best fresh baits ever!!

  Offshore -

Catches of mowies and snapper have been reported out in the 50-60 metre mark of water with nice kingies still out there as well as extra large pigfish.  Head closer into the 20-30 metre mark for some nice flathead straight off the front of Coila.  At the moment there is only a light current running with the water temperature running at 20 degrees celcius.

 Safe fishing everyone and remember "every day's a good day for fishing ... " !
