Our thanks to Merimbula Big Game and Lakes Angling Club for this week's report

Game fishers report a number of sizable Mako Sharks off the first drop off out of Merimbula (about 20 nautical miles offshore). Excellent sport for the tag and release fraternity.

With sea temperatures a little cool (15 degrees) best try for ocean flathead at 18-20 fathoms. All along from Tura Headland past Bournda Island to SE of Turingal Headland. Off Kianinny and to the north off Boronda headland, try 15 fathoms out to 20 fathoms. Also try, off White Rock, and the Tathra Hotel. are available off our local reefs. Best areas for snapper and morwong are between 15 and 20 fathoms off Long Point and White Rock as well as Lennards, North Head and Boyds Tower. Snapper and morwong respond to pilchard and squid baits as well as soft plastics and metal micro jigs. Some excellent calamari squid have been taken after dark at the Merimbula Wharf. Best results using a slow sinking squid jig let down to the weed tops.

The Club’s next event is the very popular Tackle World Tri-Estuary Challenge which has a prize pool of some $7,000 for more than 40 prizes so there is virtually something for everyone. To be held over the weekend of 10th and 11th of November this event is open to all anglers with free entry for children. The Challenge is catch and release only with fish length photographed on a DPI “brag mat”. The fishing areas are the Bega River, Merimbula and Merimbula Back Lakes and Pambula Lake. Entry finalized at the Briefing 9th November at the Clubhouse in Spencer Park.

The MBGLA Club will be open on Friday evening at 6.30 pm and visitors are very welcome. In fact on the following Friday, 2 November the Club will be holding a free sausage sizzle and family night plus an exciting raffle, everyone is invited! Put this into your must do diary.

Keep your rods bent!
