Far South Coast fishing report: What's biting this week?

Moruya River

There are good reports of bream and trevally being caught around Quarry Wharf this week, and even better reports of large flathead laying around the shallows.

With the weather warming up, it's nearly time to break out the surface lures.

Tuross Lake

Great reports of bream up to 35 centimetres long, and flathead up to 55 centimetres long being caught in both the oyster leases and up river this week.

These fish were caught on Jackson 70mm athletes and Daiwa double clutch 60mm.

There are good numbers of perch being caught up the back of the system; try using very lightly weighted Gulp crabbies, as these fish are deep in the snags.

Rocks and beaches

Large drummer, bream, and luderick are hanging around most headlands this week, with the best baits either peeled prawns or cunjie.

The salmon schools have been a bit hit-and-miss this week as they are moving around a fair bit. When you can find them, Arma metal slices and pilchards on a paternoster rig will do the trick.

Squid are still being caught around Bingie, and some lobsters are being trapped around the Pedro/Congo area.


There are good numbers of flathead being caught in 60 metres of water from Broulee down to Tuross Head. There are also nice snapper, morwong, and gummy sharks in the same area.

For fishers who like to throw plastics around, some nice reds have been caught in close around the Moruya Surf Club.
