Tackle World Fishing Report April 29, 2022
More positive reports this week as the river continues to fish well. With only minimal rainfall last week, the river continues to clear steadily, for now! Most fishing activity was seen from Quarry Wharf to the Mouth, Airport Flats, Preddy Wharf and Anchorage all seeing good numbers of Flathead, Bream and Trevally. The flats and racks behind the hole in the wall also held out Bream and Flathead.
The water temperature at this time of year is at its peak, so you never know what might happen at this time of year.
The water under the City Bridge also begins to clear up, albeit slowly, but Flathead and Bream on the sand flats below begin to become an option again after dark. It is also possible that the strange estuary perch is also found.
This system was the leader last week, with plenty of clear, warm water flowing in and out of the system, due to the wide mouth of the river currently being affected. Flathead, Bream, Trevally were all a common catch this week, with cleaner water pushing above four lanes giving anglers more than the lower sections to explore and fish again.
With a black moon this Sunday, there might even be a chance of finding some late-season shrimp in Coila.
With warm currents prevailing, whiting could eventually make a late season appearance in the river above the flats.
Rock and Beach.
Bream, Whiting, Tailor, Salmon, Bonito have all been popping up on local headlands and beaches this past week. Moruya Breakwall fished particularly well, with good numbers of Tailor and Bream reported, as well as Trevally Salmon and Flathead.
Worms have been the bait of choice for those hunting bream and whiting on the beaches. While sardines or cast metal lures represented the tailor, salmon and bonito from the local breakwater and headlands.
Snapper and Flathead were both seen last week, for offshore fishing crews. Along with the hottest currents, there have undoubtedly been a few game teams that Turing has unwound as well.
Look for the snapper in 40-50m of water, while 20-30m of water is a good place to start looking for the Flathead.
Reports from Montague Island have been hit and miss on the Kingfish, with some days producing good sized fish, and others leaving anglers wondering where the fish are going day to day??
We have a brand new offering from Diawa Australia in store now, with Infeet Kodachi lures arriving this week. These lures will be crackers on the big blue nose bream that are starting to be spotted from now on as the weather begins to cool. They will also account for estuary perch, flathead, bass, trevally and trout in the mountains.
Come in and check them out today.
