Moruya River

Head to Town Wharf and go for a walk down to Ryans Creek and you'll secure yourself some nice catches of bream in this area.  Strike Pro blades are working a treat with the bait fisho's having most luck with prawns or live beach worms - which will be back in stock at 9.00 am tomorrow.  There are still plenty of those large tailor around the Quarry Wharf area, so it may be a good idea to use a light wire trace down to your metal slice.  Team Tackle World member Aaron has also been enjoying nice catches of flathead from Ryans Creek down (walking along the bank) using Gulp 4" swimming mullet.


Tackle World VIP member Richard reports good catches of bream on Cranka Shads (diving hard body) around the oyster leases as well as in the shallows around the big island.  Nathan and Jazz launched their canoes on Wednesday and enjoyed a great catch and release session scoring Bass up to 40 cm on Sebile Cranksters.  Team Tackle World member Jade also scored bream and mullet on Prawn Dog Surface Walkers further up the back of the system. 

Beaches and Rocks

South Head beach is producing some nice catches of bream and flathead off live beach worms, while Salmon and Tailor are being brought in off the Breakwall.  For best results use a Paternsoter rig with a surf popper on the top teamed with gang hooks on the bottom.


Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa 1 and II reports a nice water temperature of 19.5 degrees celcius, with a good slow drift running at the moment.  The windsock produced some nice flathead in the 20 m mark.  Ron then headed out into the 30-50 metre mark and had to do some searching but ended up with catches of snapper, mowies and pigfish, with some exceptional gummmies around 15-25 kg in size.  Bait of choice has been squid and mullet fillets.  Throw out a diving lure such as a Strada Tracka 140 mm while trolling as there have been plenty of benito around at the moment as well.

We have just recently returned from the annual Camping and Outdoor Trade Show and as a result will be refurbishing this part of our store with some great new product.  Don't forget when you're inside checking out the fishing gear there is also an upstairs full of camping gear!!

Have a great week everyone and remember "everyday's a good day for fishing ..... "
