Strike Hook SALMON COMPETITION 2016 - Sponsored by SPOTTERS

Recommended Posts

The Strike Hook salmon competition for 2016 is on NOW!!!
 
 
Major sponsor SPOTTERS on board for this awesome comp with a cool Spotters prize pack up for grabs.
 
 
Major Prize: Spotters prize pack including, very cool cap, sun shade, sunglasses strap and a pair of awesome SPOTTERS FURY (Gloss Black) with Halide lens.
 
Two runner up prizes including salmon lures and poppers.
 
Also check out the Spotters website www.spotters.com.au for their full range of sunnies and merchandise.
 
 
This year we have a points system for the major prize. Points will be awarded for fish with the total highest amount of points at the end being the winner. If there is a draw then the largest fish or least small fish will decide the final winner.
 
 
21cm - 35cm 2 points
36cm - 45cm 4 points
46cm - 55cm 6 points
56cm - 65cm 8 points
66cm - 75cm 10 points
76cm and above 12 points
 

 

Longest overall salmon for one runner up prize.

 

As a backup we are having a few options for the last runner up prize which relies heavily on the members reports. These include the worst trip, best by-catch, most kms traveled and the most trips all chasing salmon.

 

This comp is dependent on good salmon reports from members who would like to take part so please get as much information in your reports, try to take some nice clear photos and get right into the Strike Hook spirit and get as many fishos as we can chasing salmon for the comp.

 

The comp ends on August 31st 2016 and is open to anyone and everyone in South Australia!

 

Good luck everyone  (y)

This is great but is there a location ? and / or is it just photos ? What about boat owners as some of us can not navigate stairs or beaches. Is this on a set date ? It seems it just from post which is far enough.

Well done SPOTTERS and all the best to those that compete. :)

Woops, forgot the end date. The comps starts now and ends August 31st 2016. I'll edit above ;)

 

As previous comps, this is open to everyone, everywhere in SA, boat or land based.

 

We need to see a report as mentioned with the details of your catch, measurements would be a good idea if you are aiming for the major prize.

Was over on Kangaroo Island recently to visit friends that were staying in D'Estress Bay. Quick session on a beach along D'Estrees Bay using cockles. Caught these salmon which was perfect for dinner.

Unfortunately did not measure, but around the 30cm or so mark or dinner plate size when cleaned. Very tasty when fresh. Just put straight on the barby after filleting & skinning with no salt or spices. (They were bled when caught).

Anyone get into any salmon action over the weekend?

 

Had a go at Maslins Sunday arvo, lots of walking and casting and not a touch. :(

 

Very happy with my new lure bag setup though, a Daiwa Trout Bag with my own customised lure storage system! B)

Hi Guys

 

Ive been giving the Hobie a work out again and thought that seeing I have stumbled onto a spot with a few decent salmon around I would show you another one that I just caught on my latest trip. I have been getting one or two every trip and in a creek they are one feisty fish and watching them tail walk with their gills flared only metres from you is the best thing to see, I absolutely love it :)

 

I have been getting them on both soft plastic and un-weighted pillies with a few snapper up to 51cms as a bonus.The salmon I just caught fell to a pillie and kept me busy for nearly 10 minutes it just wasnt going to give up and several times I thought I had him beat only for him to charge off again. The fish went 65cms and I am yet to get one under 60cms.

 

I can see me getting a go-pro so I can capture some footage while I am fishing as my phone is to hard to use while you are attached to one of these beauties :)

      Most would know about this topic and most would have seen the article. Have you voted 'YES' or 'NO' to the call to ban sea nets in the Gulf of St Vincent? You can find the poll on the article page and also view the results.
       
      Article from The Advertiser (not sure how it will paste) Link to original article - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/calls-to-ban-sea-nets-after-thousands-of-dead-fish-found-dumped-off-ardrossan-jetty/news-story/2050a17b1edbc66de3a7865ad065b81d
       
       
                  Calls to ban sea nets after thousands of dead fish found dumped off Ardrossan jetty   CRAIG COOK, The Advertiser October 11, 2017 7:01pm
       
      THOUSANDS of dead fish dumped by the BHP jetty at Ardrossan have caused outrage among recreational fishermen.
      The Advertiser has been told the catch of around 400kg of Australian salmon was released by a commercial fisherman based at Stansbury when his nets snagged on the jetty.
          Danny Simpson, executive director of Recfish SA, that took video of the dead fish lying in shallows, said his members “strongly condemn” the dumping.
       
      ”He appears to have dumped them there and just disappeared which we regard as a pretty irresponsible act.” he said.
       
      “From our perspective this is outrageous behaviour and why we want to see sea nets removed from Gulf St Vincent.”
       
      He questioned why the fisherman was netting so close to shore.
       
      “We want to know why he was apparently netting in front of the jetty of a major Yorke Peninsula township,” he added.
       
      Still grab of part of the huge fish catch seen at the bottom of the Ardossan Jetty.
       
      The Marine Fishers Association (MFA), representing the interests of South Australia’s 300 Marine Scalefish Fishery (MSF) statutory licence holders, said one of its members was responsible for the dumping.
       
      MFA executive officer, Nathan Bicknell, said in a Facebook statement that “gear failure” and the operator’s decision to “operate outside industry norms” were to blame.
       
      Clarifying the statement, Mr Bicknell told The Advertiser: “The operator’s decision was to keep his whole catch and that’s how he got himself into mischief.
       
      “There’s nothing illegal in what he did but there is strong peer pressure to do the right thing.”
       
      Chief executive of Yorke Peninsula Council, Andrew Cameron, who lives in Ardrossan said he was seeking more information from staff in the town but was “extremely disappointed” with such “irresponsible behaviour”.
       
      RecSA member David Bryant posted on Facebook:
      “Absolutely disgusting, remove his netting license, problem solved, total disregard for our marine life and local fishers. This behavior (sic) is way too common from netters. I call to ban all netting in any areas close and around our gulfs. Absolutely horrified”
       
      Tragic waste ... around 400kg of prized Australian salmon, similar to the one above, was released by a commercial fisherman when his nets snagged on the jetty.
      A statement from the Department of Primary Industries and Regions said: “PIRSA received reports regarding a significant number of dead Western Australian salmon near the southern Ardrossan jetty on Monday and dispatched fisheries officers to the area to make inquiries to determine the cause and circumstances.
        “The commercial fisher responsible subsequently identified himself and has assisted fisheries officers with their inquiries.
       
      “Based on the available information, it appears that a combination of gear failure and poor fishing practices resulted in the unintended release of part of a school of salmon caught by the fisher about 300 metres from the BHP jetty.
       
      “We understand the fisher initially unsuccessfully attempted to retrieve all of the released fish and has since returned to the area to collect what fish he can.
       
      “Although a rare occurrence, PIRSA is none the less disappointed with this incident and will continue to work closely with industry to ensure all fishers adopt best practice commercial fishing operations in SA.”
