Bermagui, Merimbula, or Eden?

Post by Charles7 » Mon Sep 18, 2023 9:04 pm

I'm thinking of doing a road trip in January, potentially to the NSW south coast and was wondering which of Bermagui, Merimbula, or Eden might suit a land-based fisher best? I usually chase basic species like bream but enjoy catching pinkies, flatties, silver trevally, aussie salmon, leatherjacket and KGW as well. I usually fish with 8lb braid with 8lb mono leader although I do have a heavier rod with 20lb mono that I like to rig with a paternoster to chase bigger units.

Any suggestions for camping spots would also be greatly appreciated as well as I'd like to pitch a tent if possible!

All are good. Though I've only fished Merimbula out of those three. Chance of catching kingfish too.

A stop in Tathra would be worthwhile.

Tathra would be your best bet for land based options.
Bega river has good access near the mouth, Nelson’s is a cool spot that I have always done well at. And then there is the main jetty that you can pretty much catch anything from.
Good luck beautiful part of the world.
