Report 7/1/17

MERIMBULA WHARF: Again the King Fish made a show later in the week. With catches at the wharf and on the Headland... As always the squid have been a popular catch with plenty being caught early morning and later in the afternoon.
Will keep you posted on the Game Fishing in weeks to come as reports start coming in from further North with catches of Blue Marlin.
Snapper and good sized up to 60cm Morwong are on the chew about the inshore reefs try White Rock out of Kianinny and the Horseshoe Reef out of Merimbula. ! Good Sand Flathead occur in patches off the Tura Beach Golf. The beaches are picking up with reported catches of both Salmon and Tailor.
Night fishing is favorable with the tides this week.
BEGA RIVER: A few local lads have been chasing Jew fish this week but coming home reporting catches of massive Duskies upto 95cm. Bream and Tailor are also proving worthy of a cast Stay with the Squidgy wrigglers for your Flathead don’t be afraid to throw some big plastics at the Duskies. Jackson Epic Prawn still a great choice with the Bream

TATHRA WHARF Producing good squid on jigs with the best results during dark. . There have been Salmon and Kingfish sightings from the Wharf and more reported Kingfish hook up from Tathra. Luderick have returned to their normal habits schooling past the Merimbula Wharf early morning and late afternoon entertaining local and visiting anglers. Best results seem to be with artificial lures, plastic strands made to look like green weed.
In the ESTUARIES: Flathead as mentioned earlier have been caught in almost all the Estuary systems in large numbers Merimbula lake proved most popular in the shallow water for these crocs and again large soft plastics up to 140mm are definitely the way to go. Trevally are a feature of the lower part of the Merimbula Lake from the bridge down. Best results after dark on soft plastics, prawns and pilchards. Whiting are on the prowl over the sand flats during high tide and respond best to worms.

Happy Fishing!

Many thanks,
Ron & Gael
