SA Snapper Fishing Closure

Nov 01 2014 10:35 AM | bjorn2fish in Industry News

In early 2011, PIRSA commenced a review of Snapper management arrangements in response to concerns about the future sustainability of the fishery as a result of increasing commercial fishing effort, and a concentration of targeted fishing activity on breeding aggregations by all fishing sectors – commercial, recreational and charter.

A number of changes have been implemented through the review process to control the level of commercial impact on Snapper stocks and provide great protection to Snapper spawning aggregations.s included below from the PIRSA website and also info regarding the special closures which continue on from the 15th of December.

Port Lincoln fishing report 30/10/2014

Oct 31 2014 12:58 PM | bjorn2fish in Eyre Peninsula

Squid continue to be a good option for the land based fisho. For the boaties, there have been plenty of options including Salmon to 2Kg, Snook, Trevally, Tommies and bigger squid. Most people that have caught King George Whiting have reported that they need to move around a bit as most drops seem to produce 1 or 2 fish only. Mussel berley has proven to bring the fish on the bite.

Along the surf beaches, schools of Salmon have been seen between Sleaford and Wanna. Some of the schools have been huge, and if you are lucky enough to encounter them within casting range, almost any type of lure is successful.

Around these schools of Salmon, there are plenty of sharks, mostly Bronze Whalers, so be careful, but they are a good option for heavier gear with a couple around 7 foot caught and released.
There have also been a few reports of Blue Swimmer Crabs around, but keep it quiet……….

Port Lincoln fishing report 23/10/2014

Oct 23 2014 08:45 PM | bjorn2fish in Eyre Peninsula

Some good sized squid and King George Whiting are being caught in the local bays by boaties. Some visitors managed whiting around 35cm in front of the P.L Tourist Park. The Jetties and rocks are still a good bet to get a good feed of squid. Snook and Garfish have been reported all over when the wind has died off.

The passage and surrounding areas have been OK for Nannygai, Morwong and a few Snapper have started to appear. Sleaford to Wanna has seen some good schools of Salmon to 4Kg. Especially the Wanna end.
Metal lures and Bigger Soft Plastics have been effective. Billy Lights Point had salmon and squid. Schools of frogmouth pilchards have been in close to shore anywhere from the town foreshore, North Shields and Louth Bay with mostly tommies and a few salmon chasing them.

Snapper rock has reports of medium sized squid coming in, being caught late in the day and into the evening. Whiting reports came from Thistle Island, Spalding Cove, Proper Bay, Bolingbroke and Louth Bay. Small Squid were still in good numbers throughout the bays and off the jetties. Salmon trout, tommies and snook are chasing baitfish along the North Shore most afternoons. The main wharf had small tommies and salmon trout.

Port Lincoln fishing report 09/10/2014

Oct 09 2014 10:27 AM | bjorn2fish in Eyre Peninsula

Summer whiting have started to move into the bays with reports of fish in Spalding Cove, Proper Bay and the North Shore/Sandhill’s area. Schools of salmon were not as prevalent over the long weekend but some nice fish came from Millers and the Salmon Hole. Bronze whaler sharks were spotted by anglers fishing the south coast between Sleaford and Wanna, and some big trevally were caught as well which is unusual.

The north shore has had schools of pilchards during the afternoons with large amounts of birds working them, with tommies, salmon trout and trevally being the predominate species caught from these patches of fish. Lures returned the best results if the fish were close enough within casting range from shore.

Boaties fishing deeper water around Thistle Island had success on king george whiting, whilst anglers fishing in closer waters around proper bay also found a good feed of whiting.
