Moruya, Tuross and Surrounds Fishing Report

19th April, 2014

Thanks to the Tuross Head Fishing Club

The Tuross Head Fishing Club held it’s monthly competition last weekend and members were chasing Pigfish for the Goblet. With dangerous bar conditions and a huge swell there weren’t any outside fishers and so the goblet will carry over until next month.

At what was predicted to be a small weigh in, 11 members weighed in a total of 29 fish and it was great to see William Newman take out the Junior Prize with his 0.240kg Flathead.

Ladies Lake and Estuary was won by Tamara Whitehead with her 0.615kg Bream and Paul Brown who spent all weekend fishing in the sleet and rain took home the Men’s Lake and Estuary with a nice Mulloway at 3.215kg. Despite the odds, keen fisher Merv Roberts braved the rocks and took home Men’s Rock and Beach with his 0.585kg Bream.

Congratulations to Bruce Kennedy who won the Mystery weight division with his Flathead 0.535kg.

Tuross overall is producing some great fishing at the moment. Flathead and Tailor have been coming in from the boatshed deck. John from the boatshed reports the Flatties seem to like the z-man soft plastics at the moment in watermelon red.

They’ve been catching big black bream off the boat ramp at One Tree. Coila Lake has been consistent with bream, tailor and flathead coming in.

Estuary Perch and bream are a plenty in both the Tuross and Moruya river systems. The bream have been biting on surface lures. When the swell dies down you’ll have no problem finding luderick about the rock walls. There are schools of huge whiting in the entrance at the moment too.

They have been catching Mulloway in the lake, mostly during the day. Just look for the holes.

Out the front of the estuary the guys have been bringing in the flatties while doing a bit of night fishing.

If you’re looking for something to do with the kids, the Tuross Fishing Club are running their annual Kids Hooked on Fishing Competition. It’s a one day fishing competition on Easter Sunday. Registration is from 7am until 9am Sunday morning and you can register at either the Tuross Boatshed or Tuross Lakeside Caravan Park.

Presentation is at 4pm Sunday arvo at Tuross Head Country Club downstairs. It’s a lake and estuary competition, $10 per entry and all the kid’s get a competition bag with rules and giveaways.

3 age groups 4-7yrs, 8-12yrs and 13-16yrs.

It’s all thanks to Shimano, Phil, Warren and the team at the Tuross Servo, Tuross Boatshed and the Tuross Country Club!
