Moruya River & Tuross

Moruya River is still producing nice catches of bream, in particular around Ryans creek with a mixture of hardbodies and fresh beach worms both working well.

There are an abundance of flathead in Tuross, however you must check sizes carefully as there are a lot of "littlies", but in amongst them you will find some decent catches.  The fact that there are so many "littlies" bodes well for the future with all you guys releasing the big "girls" it's obviously paying off.

Beaches and Rocks

Goulburn Workers paid off well for Nathan and Juzz who enjoyed nice catches of bream, whiting (yes they're still around) and tailor - all off fresh beach worms.

The rocks are still working a treat for good catches of drummer being pulled in off peeled prawns or cunji.  Most headlands are working well.

Team Tackle World member Nathan has been diving with a great success rate on nice lobbies at the moment - head in store we only have 4 pots left!!


VIP member Damon scored some nice Snapper on the weekend straight off the front of Moruya on Squidgy 120 mm Wrigglers.

Meanwhile, Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa I and II set out off Moruya and drifted slowly down to Tuross in 40 m of water and enjoyed nice catches of snapper and flathead.  All were caught on bait fish and squid.  There were a few pigs around with good sized leatherjackets off the reefs as well.  The water temperature is currently running at 19.5 degrees celcius with a mild current running.  Broulee Surfclub (just out the front) is also producing some very nice catches of flathead at the moment also.

Good news!!  Excellent reports of yellowfin out wide with sizes of 100 kg plus.

Stocks of Salt Away and Stabil have now both been revamped, so there's plenty in store to keep your tackle and motors in good order.

Beach worms are in store NOW, so hurry to secure yourself a tub or two!!

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