MERIMBULA WHARF: The King fish made a show this week with reports of a couple of catches . Anglers still getting onto good sized squid. The EGI Jigs are still proving successful. Flatties and sharks have been dominant out side Night fishing has proved a hit for a couple of boats up on vacation this week. Snapper and good sized upto 60cm 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,. 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 WHARFS are both producing good squid on jigs with the best results during dark. 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 shooling 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.

Many thanks,
