Moruya, Tuross and Surrounds Fishing Report

26th April, 2014

Thanks to the Tuross Head Fishing Club

After a few big weeks in Tuross it’s a credit that there is still plenty of good fishing around. This week in the estuary the guys have been catching good bream, salmon and flathead, some coming in through a bit of night fishing. The whiting have been a bit scarce of late though.

Flathead and Tailor have been coming in from just off the boatshed deck. Blue bait has been a winner.

The boat ramp at One Tree if you can find room is bringing in some good sized black bream. Coila Lake continues to be 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.

They have been catching the odd Mulloway in the holes in the lake, mostly during the day.

From all reports it’s been a bit quite outside this past week. Still able to catch enough snapper for a good feed but it’s been a bit on a off. Those heading out the bar shouldn’t have any drama’s bringing in the snapper and pigfish, but quite a few boaters have reported pesky small flathead chewing off their bait. And of course those leatherjackets will drive you mad if you’re unlucky to land on top of them.

The kids had a ball last Sunday at the annual Kids Hooked on Fishing Competition. If you were there at the event, there are plenty of pictures on the fishing club Facebook page. The biggest flathead caught and released was 68cm and there were over 80 fish weighed in with many more than released back alive into the lake. Thanks again to the Tuross Service station, Shimano and the boatshed who sponsored the event this year.

For anyone wanting more info on the Tuross fishing club, just head to the website. The next monthly competition is on Mother’s Day with two goblets, Snapper and Pigfish.
