  1. caught a couple around the 50cm mark. They fought really hard. great fish to catch. That is an absolute monster Jack Kee
  2. Fished in the kayak metro local yesterday, Got a nice feed of trouties. Water like glass and only saw about 4 boats. Seems like everyone else went somewhere. Never seen so few people for a long weekend
  3. good pick up Plecro' It is spawining season when the large mullys are targeted most on the west coast of SA so fair bet it may have something to do with this. It is possible that is bruising from the fight though, as they say the bigger you are the harder you fall and fish that size could cause some damage to themselves quite easily under their own weight, with line wrap or even the sinker banging against them, but the wounds look like they may be older than a few minutes so my bet is on spawning aggression or behaviours. https://www.pir.sa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/232393/Yalata_Mulloway_Recreational_Fishery_-_FINAL.pdf
  4. Dont know what the answer is, license with a test is really the only way to reach everyone....but then people will fish without a license so you still cant win. Bigger fines and more fisheries officers are required. Was fishing easter monday at the local which was unusually busy. There's myself fishing barbless hooks and putting anything back that's not at least a cm over the limit to be sure im doing the right thing.......... then there's Groups of people spread out who all know each other all keeping everything they caught. From a distance i knew they were doing the wrong thing but from that far away i couldnt be 100% sure so i kept quiet a while and watched. then one of them walked past me to put a fish in a mates bucket and as suspected it was a 20 ish cm king george whiting. I told them loud enough for all the mates to hear that it wasnt legal size and it needs to go back...which he did put that one back ....but then they just kept keeping everything after that any way. Pissed me off so much and did leave a report with fishwatch .
  5. I fish the same lures and same areas a bit and havent had the problem so as mentioned you might just be unlucky, the bigger the school the more competition so the little fish are probably really competing for food and are more aggressive than usual. Perhaps try a plastic thats bigger or has a thicker body, like the squidgy prawn imitation, or a longer flick bait.
  6. Yeah both anaconda and bcf change their prices so often their point of sale staff and ticketing can’t keep up:( always pays to check
  7. PIRSA have been running a campaign on this for a while now https://www.pir.sa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0008/348155/2019_Asian_Paddle_crab_factsheet.pdf https://www.pir.sa.gov.au/alerts_news_events/news/ministerial_releases/keep_watch_for_asian_paddle_crab_and_report_it
  8. Reddies are delicious Wadey nice white flesh, easy skin to remove bit of butter lemon and dill and youre laughing
  9. I use soft racks for my kayak which is 33 kg. They should be absolutely fine for a swag.
  10. I fish those spots a bit, still catch the same species though never a legal sized whiting. but salmon trout fishing is still good and you get the odd flathead, bream trevally tommies gar puffers and cow fish Haven't been down there since the dredging started though
  11. troll up and down the northern outer harbour breakwall for salmon trout, pretty easy to get a few during winter. you can berley them to keep them in an area once you locate them. plenty salmon trout off northhaven rockwalls too port river for salmon trout too
