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.

Port Lincoln fishing report 03/10/2014

Schools of Salmon of varying sizes have been found along the Sleaford to Wanna beaches. Patience must be exercised at times as you wait for the schools to come in close enough to cast to. Metal lures, poppers and big soft plastics have been effective when you can reach the schools. King George Whiting were around Thistle Island, Taylors and the Lumps.

Port Lincoln fishing report 25/09/2014

Sep 25 2014 03:49 PM | bjorn2fish in Eyre Peninsula

The town jetty and wharf is continuing to produce smaller squid at all times of the day. Squid were also around Louth Bay, North Shields and Spalding Cove. Tommies and salmon trout are also being caught on baits and lures, however better catch results occur when burley is being used. The Sleaford to Wanna stretch of coast had numerous schools of 1 to 4kg salmon. Finding them within casting range can be tricky but when the sharks, seals or dolphins push them in close some brilliant lure fishing can be the result. We haven’t had any reports of whiting in the bays but Spalding Cove on dusk would be worth a try. Whiting have been reported between Carcass Rock and Taylors Landing, the Lumps and Thistle Island. The Passage had some nanny’s and the occasional Samson fish.
