Hello All, After few months of successful fishing in Durras North, I have now decided to spend some time fishing in Tathra. If you have not seen my fishing reports from Durras North then you can see them here. Tathra seems very interesting because it seems fairly easy to catch Salmon above 50cm from the beach and there are some rocky areas on both ends of Tathra Beach that I have not explored yet. Drone fishing has been extremely difficult on Tathra Beach due very strong undercurrents that cause too much drift when you drone-drop the bait a few hundred meters out. I have caught 3 Salmon on Tathra Beach so far (2 above 50cm) and they were all caught by good old fashion manual casting. I plan to spend at least a few weeks if not months exploring fishing spots in Tathra. Stay tuned for video reports in this thread! Here is my first fishing report from Tathra:
Hi everyone. New here. I’m planning a holiday during Winter for a weekend away. I’m hoping to get down to Callala Beach to try some beach fishing. Planning to go bait fishing but throw some metal lures too for some tailor or salmon. Anyone caught anything off the beach before? And any tips for a new beach fisher? thank you! A
Hi guys, I’m going to Conjola this weekend and would love to catch some fish while there. Mainly after bass. I’ve looked at porters creek dam on the stocking site. Anyone fished it before. I live in Sydney so I won’t be coming down to steal your secret spots if someone would be helpful and send me some info even via Private message that would be awesome. Cheers guys
Hi guys, I am planning on heading down to Meroo National Park, just south of Ulludulla next week for a few days camping and mostly FISHING! I am a keen fisho, but amateur at best. I went down and fished this very spot last easter, in search of a good beach Salmon or Tailor. I had researched and learnt all I could about the best ways to catch these guys. No luck on the salmon in the end, caught a nice flatty and a few little ones, a dart, a small trevally and a rock fish of some description…and a tone of bream from Meroo lake..(thoroughly recommend!) I can’t quite attribute my failure for the salmon though.. I was running two types of rigs. A paternoster rig with a 2x 2/0 baitholder hook and BM 2oz sinker with enough trace to stop it all tangling up. The second rig was a simple running ball sinker 1oz-2oz with 45cm leader into a 2/0 baitholder. Both sets were baited with cut segments of pillies, I did try 3/0 ganged hooks, but never got a nibble… Plus I could never set the hooks right, and as we are camping, the further the trip progressed the softer the pillies became(ice kept melting), they eventually just fell of the hooks. I had spotted a school of salmon about 10m offshore hunting through the waves, cast out into the pack, and not a bite. Similarly, I attempted lures into the same school and not a thing. They were definitely salmon because I met a dude later that avo and he said he had caught two whoppers at that same spot! Bugger!! I fished the gutters, the run-in and out tide, the deep holes and the rips… Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have another 3 days next week to get them, and I am not coming home empty handed! Cheers, Liam
