Fishing Report 3/2/12

Friday, February 03, 2012 by tackleworldmoruya

Hey guys,

Here goes for this week's fishing report.


Moruya River -

Unfortunately due to the poor weather lately, there's not much to report in any of the systems lately.  However, when the weather did permit, Tackle World Moruya members Nathan and Justine squeezed in a rewarding session of bream, whiting, flathead, and luderick in the backwaters.  VIP member Jimmy also reports large catches of mullet, bream and whiting.  As always, the whiting are hitting the live beach worms hard and if you're a lure fisher, you can't go past a popper session.  The bream remain responsive to Cameons, however the old faithful SX40s are as successful as ever if you prefer to stick to what you know.


Tuross -

Tackle World Moruya member Mark reports the system is fishing best around the oyster leases and in the snags.  The leases are your best bet for the bream, which are responding best to Cranksters cast right up into framework.  Be careful not to cast too far and get stuck however, so if you're taking the kids out you might want to teach them how to control their casting first.  If it's the flathead you're after, try a combination of Strada Piccolas and soft plastics to get a feel for what the fish are hitting hardest.  The whiting are probably the most predictable of the lot, with almost guaranteed success on live beach worms sold exclusively by Tackle World Moruya.


Beaches and Rocks -

The pick of the beaches currently is arguably the gutter at Goulbourn workers, which is providing the opportunistic beach fisho with a great chance for some memorable catches.  There's plenty of salmon rewarding anyone who throws out Arma Twisties, which will also attract the tailor.  The whiting are again responding best to live beach worms, so either catch some while you're there or buy a tub in store.  The beach worms will also catch bream, as will cubed pilchards.


Offshore -

Captain Ron aboard Winda Woppa I and II reports that before the weather turned foul, large kingfish, mowies and pigfish were being caught on live fish bait.  Extra large nannygai and wera are also hitting fish bait and squid, with some less substantial ling in the mix.  All of the above were found in 57m of water, at a 21.3 degrees water temperature.  If it is the large kingfish you're after, first head out off Moruya heads in close and stock up on slimies for live bait.  Due to the mild currents, it is advised that you use a sea anchor.  Also in close around Pedro Point are the snapper, which are hitting the soft plastics hard.  Off the shelf, there are plenty of marlin looking to show you a fantastic fight.
