Live glow worms in stock. Christmas catalogue is still running until 24th December.

MERIMBULA WHARF: Still has some good sized squid. Give the EGI Jigs a go or check our catalogue for specials on IKA Squid Jigs. Have your rods ready in case the Kingies decide to show
Ocean Flathead Fire up North of Tathra
Warmer waters associated with the East Australian Current are pushing ever southward and local ocean temperatures increasing. Longliners are catching Bluefin Tuna well out beyond the shelf. Together with reported Marlin and Yellowfin hook- ups closer in a great Gamefishing season is anticipated.
Snapper and Morwong are on the chew about the inshore reefs try White Rock out of Kianinny and the Horseshoe Reef out of Merimbula. Renovation of the jetties at Mogareeeka and Kianinny is now complete and they are a pleasure to use! Good Sand Flathead occur in patches off the Tura Beach Golf Course and Tura Headland. Sand and Tiger Flathead are also available off Cowdreys, dare we say in plague proportions, try at 12 to 15 fathoms. The beaches however are slow with only a few Salmon and Tailor reported.

BEGA RIVER : Still producing the odd Jewie this week. Soft Plastics the go with Squidgy Pro Range Prawn being the pick. Good bream in the upper reaches, with some nice flatties getting caught closer to the bridge this week. Squidgy Prawns doing the damage on these as well. Give the Squidgy Wrigglers 140mm a goon the Jewies and big Flat Head. The Jackson Epic Panic Prawn lures are also a hit with the Bream and Flathead.

The MERIMBULA and TATHRA WHARVES are both producing good squid on jigs with the best results during dark. It is pleasing to report that repairs to the Tathra Wharf are complete and the wharf is open for business. There have been Salmon and Kingfish sightings from both Wharfs and a great Kingfish hook up reported from Tathra. Luderick have returned to their normal habits shoaling 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 very large 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. With soft plastics the go, there is no shortage of good Dusky Flathead and anglers are encouraged to consider catch and release. Bream are also on the chew in Merimbula and Pambula Lakes and the Bega River, The Bega River has closed. Fishing there will be less affected by tides and quietly angling with soft plastics or nippers the best way to achieve results.

DPI proposed seeding of Wallagoot Lake with prawns has been postponed due to an outbreak of white spot virus at the Queensland hatcheries.

Many thanks,
