Fishing Report, 24 August 2012

Moruya River


The work being carried out at Town Wharf has now been completed and the ramp is now ready for use again.


Unfortunately we have been unable to get on the water this past week as we have been locked away in conference at a trade show - Australian Fishing and Tackle Association (AFTA).  We are pleased to report that we have some brilliant new gear turning up and this will be appearing in store from now through to Christmas!


Congratulations to Paul Worsteling from IFISH with Tackle World on being awarded the "best of show" award for his book "The Fishermen's Bucket List"!!




Team Tackle World member Jade and his mate Tom headed out on Tuross this past week where they seen plenty of big bream however they couldn't get them to bite.  Apparently the water is very clear and the bream were a little bit spooky.  Head up to fourways for some nice catches of luderick and flathead.


Beaches and Rocks


Team Tackle World member Nathan caught himself a nice feed of lobbies after going for a dive this week.  There are still plenty of salmon and tailor, with drummer and luderick being pulled in off the headlands.




Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa I and II reports good catches of snapper, large kingies and 2 kg leather jackets in 70 m of water straight off Moruya.  Motor down off Congo for good catches of flathead in the 30 metre mark.  Ron caught all his fish on both squid and fish bait.  Ron also advises using heavy sinkers as the barracoota have been pinching the bait on the way down.  Please check bar conditions before heading out as we believe there are some "swirly" winds around, however we have checked the forecast and it looks like it should be OK with seas abating.




This weeks VIP ONLY special - Combo of the week - Penn Senator 114H2 teamed with a Shimano Brutus 24-37 kg rod at a ridiculous price of $199.00, but remember you must show your VIP card to receive this special offer.


Tackle World Moruya has now joined facebook! So go to to check the site for updates on specials and great photos!  Make sure you view facebook this weekend as hopefully we will have a great little video of the new Cranka Crabs which were released at AFTA - these things are going to "smash" the fish and have to be seen to be believed - they will hit the market around November.  Have a great week everyone and "remember everyday's a good day for fishing ...!"
