Thanks to the Tuross Head Fishing Club
In any given week you wouldn’t know what to expect especially with the erratic weather of late, however the Tuross fishing club has some good reports coming in.
Coila is firing for garfish, bream and flathead. There are some really good bag numbers and most of what’s coming in is a keeper.
The blackfish down the front of Tuross have been prolific, in good numbers and good sizes around the rock face leading to the mouth of estuary.
Around the Coopers Island area the whiting have been on. Put in some time and grab some squirt worms and you’ll get them coming in, even around the .680 mark. They are also finding some big green backs around the area.
Some decent size flathead around the 88cm mark are being caught out the front of Tuross.
The Snapper are back outside however everyone is being plagued by mutton birds still. During migration they are creating havoc for fishers with no qualms about attacking the line.
The Kingfish are coming back to the north of Montague Island but it’s a bit hit and miss still.
Up past the bridge in Batemans Bay members fished for jewies with success. To see what the locals are catching check out Tuross Head Fishing Club on facebook.
The date for the next Flathead and Bream Competition has been announced - in 2014 it will again be on the Canberra Day long weekend, Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th March. Find out more at Tuross Head Lake Fishing Tournament on Facebook.
