Tackle World Moruya - Fishing Report


Moruya River

VIP Member Jarod caught and released a very healthy 84cm flathead on a Squidgie 'Pody'. Plenty of large whiting have been caught on both live beach worms and Strada Virals and Dance (BRAND NEW IN STORE NOW) surface lures. Tackle World Moruya member Mark has been catching large Luderick on green weed. The sand flats above the hospital are fishing quite well for flathead and whiting, responding best to Squidgies and live beach worms or surface lures, respectively. Down the front, in the backwaters, Tackle World Moruya members Nathan and Juzz have been catching bream, whiting and flathead on Strada Virals. Head to our facebook page for photos!


VIP member Noel fished the backwaters of the Tuross system in 1-1.5m of water, with a couple of fish caught on white soft plastics. Upon switching to a darker Squidgie Shad, he landed two flathead around the 70cm mark, lost another (a lot larger) and then caught and released another 30 within a two hour session, between 32-38cm. Tackle World Moruya member Jade also had a good catch and release session featuring flathead and bream, using the new Strada Dance (surface walker). Extremely large Luderick have been caught on fly.

Congratulations to all entrants in the kids' fishing competition last weekend, there were some remarkable fish caught and everyone should be proud of themselves!

Beaches and Rocks

VIP member John reports the windsock has been providing bream and large whiting on live beach worms (exclusive to Tackle World Moruya if you don't want to catch them yourselves). Tackle World Moruya member John (Senior) has been catching bream, whiting and flathead off Congo beach.


Plenty of sand and tiger flathead are currently being caught on both fishbait and squid, between 20-50m of water. Nice snapper, mowies and gummy sharks are coming off the wider reefs. Down in close off Congo, 'cricket score' numbers of squid have been hitting the IKA squid jigs hard. Good size kingfish have been caught in close off Congo, responding best to Gulp 7 inch Jerk Shads.
