Local Jettys have seen some big Tommies & Garfish through the day and into the night.

Port Lincoln fishing report 20/11/2014

Nov 20 2014 11:44 AM | bjorn2fish in Eyre Peninsula

Big Garfish and Tommies from the Jettys, along with some squid during the day and into the night.

Lots of undersized Blue Swimmer Crabs with a few legal ones are being caught in Boston and Proper Bays.

Try the main wharf for King George Whiting, Silver Trevally, salmon trout and Blue Swimmer Crabs.

There are still plenty of Salmon trout and Tommies working the baitfish schools in the afternoons, just look for the birds working close to shore.

Port Lincoln fishing report 14/11/2014

Nov 14 2014 02:16 PM | bjorn2fish in Eyre Peninsula

The North Shields jetty has had schools of legal silver trevally. Try the main wharf for bigger squid, snook, whiting, salmon up to 1kg, and big tommies. Both Boston bay and Proper bay had reports of blue swimmer crabs, by both land based and boat anglers. Make sure to always check the size as a lot of undersize crabs are being landed in pots. Further along the coast reports have come in from anglers fishing Point Drummond up to convention beach with salmon being around the 2-3kg mark as well as some big tommies from the surf. A few whiting were found at Thistle and Taylors Island. Proper Bay, Spalding Cove and the North Shore were best for whiting at dawn or dusk. Late afternoon is still good for salmon and tommies along the North Shore. Small squid are still reliable of the jetties and in the bays.

Port Lincoln fishing report 06/11/2014

Nov 06 2014 11:00 AM | bjorn2fish in Eyre Peninsula

Snook and Squid are continuing to be on the chew with many anglers fishing both from the shore and in boats reporting good catches. Best results have been found to be late afternoon and into the evening.

Salmon up to 1kg and big fat Tommies are hanging around Boston, Proper and Louth Bay chasing assorted baitfish schools of blue bait, pilchards, and anchovies. Both land based anglers fishing and boaties are having success using similar size lures to what these fish are feeding on. Metal slugs like the Spanyid Raider are proving to be very effective, with afternoons seeming to be the best time. Look for the birds working close to shore to find the fish.

Lots of undersize King George Whiting are being caught from within Proper Bay. Please make sure you check the size of your fish before keeping them.
A whisper of a few Blue Crabs around Boston and proper Bay are also being reported by boaties.

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.
