THE Moruya River has been producing some great catches of bream around the hospital area and up around the boulders.
Diving, hard-bodied lures like SX 40s and strada badjas have been working well, along with the new squidgy 65mm prawn and fuze prawns.
Flathead are being caught from Ryans Creek down to the entrance, mainly on whitebait, fresh nippers and soft plastics like the fuze fin baits.
Whiting are still being caught on the flats opposite Preddy’s Wharf.
Drag out your surface lures and fish the rising tide in the shallows for these guys. Live nippers are also great bait.
TW Mark has been down the spur wall catching his beloved luderick on rock cabbage and even donating some floats to big fish.
If it’s bass you’re after, we are hearing great reports from the pump station of good numbers being caught on both diving and surface lures.
There have been great reports from Tuross all week of people bagging out on flatties, generally all over the system, so be adventurous and have a look around.
Squidgy fish in the IFISH series have been working well, especially in the 70mm red bloodworm colour.
A few jewies are being caught down the front in the deep holes but watch the minimum size limit of 70cm.
Let these juvenile fish grow up to be something to brag about.
Whiting and bream are also being caught around the shallow edges, same as the flatties.
Get get away from the crowds and use some small soft plastics like the fuze prawns or sandworms.
Bass up-river have been on the chew during these hot muggy days and local Jason caught and released 20 fish, the best being a massive 47cm to the fork, all caught on cicada surface lures.
The breakwall has been producing some salmon, tailor, bream and whiting with a few sharks being thrown in during the after-dark sessions.
The best bait for these fish would be salted pilchards and beach worms.
Try throwing some arma metallics for the salmon and tailor as they love to chase lures.
Congo has been fishing well.
Locals Justin and Matt had a great night earlier in the week, catching extra-large bream, salmon and some small sharks.
The water has warmed up offshore and the fish are starting to chew, with good numbers of snapper, flathead, mowies and the occasional kingfish thrown in.
This is mainly happening in about 60 to 70 metres of water.
Good numbers of marlin are showing up out wide with 30-odd raised earlier in the week, then disappearing as quickly as they came.
Be patient and you will be rewarded.
Remember that every day’s a good day for fishing!
