    Reunited

    Winter is amongst us. Some fishing banter is in order. 2005, 13 years old. I convince my parents to go to Broome. And somehow book a charter. $140 per person was the going rate. A great day out, landing 3 sails. 9 for the day. I send my photo into fishing world. Receiving my prize but not returning my only photo. 2018. 13 years later. I send the skipper a email. "Somewhere in July i said" He tracks back to the day in his books and sends me the other two fellow fishers details. As i knew one had a camera. A respond from Tasmania.. with full detail ov the day. Soon enough photos arived in the mail. Reunited.

    Hello , David here. My friend and I have recently retired and now want to do more fishing as we now have the time. We have a 14ft tinny and very awear of our restriction re wind and swell off north haven. I would like to ask if anyone could give me some potential gps marks to try both for whiting and salmon trout. Thanking you in anticipation

    New whiting fisher from North Haven

    Jump in the car and drive north to a little town called Price,it is SA,s best kept secret for small boats as it can be fished in all weather conditions.There is a channel just out from the mouth of the creek that has exposed sand bars on either side when the tide is at its lowest that's where you fish.About midway through the runout tide is the time to fish.Over the years I have spent there using half pillies on ganged 2/os I have landed a multitude of spieces,including salmon trout(not small ones either) in their masses,snook,huge mullet,big yellow fin,monster flatties,eagle ray,elephant shark,mulloway, all on the run out tide.On the in coming tide I move to the end of the channel where it meets the ocean,this is where the KGs hang out in the shallow murky water, I use cockles there.Then I move in closer around the the 2 marker poles on the sand flats where I finish the day off with a feed of yellowfin and bream on worms.I haven't fished there for a few years after losing my fishing buddy and good mate to a sudden heart attack aged 40.Give it a crack life is too short not to.

    What going on with your the Snappers?

    I don't need to say anything more about this coz you have all already said it for me. What I will say is that we sorely lack they have in other states and that is common sense where it is needed most. Recreational fishing in SA is at least 30 years behind the rest of Australia in regards things like the stocking of fish species to replenish populations sufficiently to sustain commercial impacts. Rec fishos annual take rate is not the issue here in my opinion either. We raped the Murray Cod to near extinction years ago and it seems history will repeat itself with snapper. And to make it worse RecFishSA has just had the funding for such ventures in our state cancelled. We need to stop taking big breeders for a few years and hope maybe snapper numbers in SA recover, and get rid of high impact commercial fishing as well. Otherwise another iconic fish species that we all love and respect will be a thing of the past.

    The Minister has been living under a rock for the last 10 years. PIRSA had & has absolutely no idea. Pissing around with stupid rule changes has achieved nothing. Now they are worried about Snapper stocks...Bloody pathetic. This has been so obvious for many years & nothing done. Leave the Recs alone & ban the pros/commercials.....simple as that.

    What going on with your the Snappers?

    Not saying i'm a pro, VERY far from it. But 6 years ago I caught my first 2 snapper in metro waters. The next 2 seasons were relatively consistent (at best maybe 25 fish). The past 3-4 years if we came back with 12 fish total, i'd say we'd be lucky (with the largest being a 2-3kg specimen). I've been saying it for many years, REC fishers have a very minor if not nothing to do with the demise of the fish stocks. Not all of us catch 1 let alone our limit when we go out. Not all of us have the big boats that can go out when the sea is average. The average REC fisher works 5-6 days a week and is limited to go out when the weather is good (mainly during the week it seems of late). All the 'Pro's' know where the fish are. They do it everyday when seas permit. But the long liners are a different kettle of fish. Once the sun goes down, they do what they want and where they want. I've seen them long line at Grange and at the Glenelg TR when season opens for the first 4 weeks. These should be off limits to the long liners. These were created for the Rec fishers! The government should be creating man made reefs all around the coast to give ALL species a chance to hide and reproduce rather than select places. Only a matter of time till the pro's find them with the quality of sounders that are out today and only getting better. And it should be the same with the PRO crab boat too. Makes me sick seeing 50ft+ boat hauling 2x2m cages every 200m so close to metro waters. This too has repercussions to the snapper stocks as its a food source for the snapper. Ok end of rant. Savage

    PIRSA was told years ago and nothing was done ,owned and run by Corrupt enterprise ,all about money ,money , money dickheads . To late WANKERS , unless you put a complete stop to long lining ,limit boat charters more ,and stop the pros taking as much as they want , and F%#K the idiots coming in our gulf with super trawlers .

    Well they can't put the blame onto the recreational fisher with the restrictions already placed on them,, perhaps it's time to have a hard look into the professional side of fishing a little more.. cheers Adrian

    Breeding maggots without meat

    That's pretty good yellow door and an interesting trial. So you'd probably get around 50 odd days if you had been taking to fish with, considering warmth of days while out of fridge. Will very interesting if you decide to try them in the coir/coconut fibre.

    I don't have any spots but you can try in the Largs Bay area you will find both just drift around till you find a patch. Squid as well.. Saw a pic the other day on FB of a bucket full of whiting like 100m off the Largs Jetty.

    Hi Salmon Fisher and welcome. Congratulations for you and your mate on retiring - so much more freedom and more time for fishing I can't answer your Q's, as I don't own a boat etc, but I'm sure - well hopefully - someone can put you onto some nice spots for those KG's. As far as Salmon Trout is concerned, I reckon you could throw some metals around while your anchored in different spot - many are around at the moment. Throw a lure out the back on your way out and maybe some bigger Salmon come to play. Good Luck and if you get some good outings, we'd love to hear about it and even see some photos if you can.

    Yeah S.A. still has to deal with the the effing disgraceful flows coming out of the Murray to prop up the cotton industry up stream. I'd hate to see the traditional flows out the Murray mouth -compared to the trickle is receives due to the mega dams upstream. And those flows are 100% DECIDED BY POLITICIANS IN BED WITH THE COTTON INDUSTRY - THEY DONT EVEN DISPUTE IT - there are taped phone calls with the deputy director of the DPI which show him so far under the doona - I cant undertand why he wasnt immediately sacked then put in jail But he wasnt The problem with politicians being watch dogs over a resource is - the only resource they want to protect is the "Cash Cow" - so even if it is being exploited in an unsavory manor - the "cow" must survive - just in a more palatable form. And accusing a fellow politician of taking too much "milk" may land you in hot water later when it comes time for your cup to be filled

    Well, thought it was time to go through the hundreds of photos I've taken during the 2018/19 trout season and make up another photo book.. With so many to pick from hopefully I've picked out some of the best, thought there were plenty of others that I still would have liked to have used but had to draw the line somewhere. As it was this book has 98 pages to it and I'm reasonably satisfied with how it came out.. so here's a few photos of the book.. This is my 16th book I've made so far of which two have gone to France & two to Goowla.. Only 5 weeks to the start of the next season.. 3rd August.. Yippeeeee!!!! cheers Adrian Front cover The last page.. Back cover..

    Biggest Mully...

    Hi fellas. Here's a pic of my best metro mully caught just b4 I sold my cuddy cab a little while back. Over the 50lb mark. These fish don't come easy but magic can happen for those who persist. I just hope my new boat is lucky also. Cheers

    I'm sure that polluted storm water run off has had a big impact as does the daily millions of liters of water from the treatment plant, sea grass is now thinly spread along the coast and way out from where it used to be.. I can remember fishing the Semaphore & Larges jetties when the sea grass was well in close to shore and only the first third of the jetty had sand under it. Used to cast into the sand patches and catch KGW on every trip.. Now it's all sand for the length of both jetties.. cheers Adrian Port River & outer Harbour area.. used to be full of sea grass.. Semaphore & Largs Beach,..
