Moruya and Tuross River
Luderick have been on the bite in the Moruya system this past week. Quarry wharf and the northern side of Moruya bridge have been two hot spots. Freshly pumped nippers or green weed are both working under a float with 4lb fluorocarbon leader.
Estuary perch are scattered throughout both river systems and have been caught as far down as the boat shed at Tuross. Early morning, late afternoon and well into the night they are taking poppers and walk the dog style surface lures. In the day you will catch them around heavy structure like oyster leases and snags. Paddle tail and grub tail soft plastics are the way to go during daylight hours.
Some nice winter whiting have been caught right up the back of Tuross. Fresh squirt worms are a must to be successful at this time of the year.
The odd flathead has been picked up drifting the channel near the boatshed at Tuross. The new squidgies range of soft plastics in bloodworm have worked well.
Rocks and Beaches
The rock fishing has been pretty good lately. Very nice size drummer and groper are coming in at Moruya Heads and Binji area using fresh crabs for bait.
Coila and Congo beach are fishing well for salmon either spinning slices or fishing full pillies on a gang hook rig. Bream are also being caught in the gutters using yabbies and worms for bait.
Local divers have been reporting good numbers of Crays and Abalone not far off the rocks. If getting in the cold water isn't your thing, our locally made cray pots are in-store and working a treat!
Snapper, mowies, pigfish and flatties have been caught on Lund squid around the 20-50 metre mark off Pedro/Congo area.
