  1. Public consultation on recreational fishing in the Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary (ADS) is now open, with temporary measures in place to strike a balance between recreational fishing access and enhancing the protection of dolphins whilst the public consultation is undertaken to inform longer-term arrangements. The Port River and Barker Inlet region, and wider ADS region, is a popular recreational fishing area that is readily accessed by land and boat. From October 1, a temporary four-month arrangement will be in place under Section 79 of the Fisheries Management Act 2007 that will requ
  2. That is fascinating!! When I go for YFW, I use a paternoster rig, with the soft plastic as the weight (not just a sinker). I get a few flathead this was but it's more of slowly moving the bait (which YFW love), rather than a jerky motion - but have never had the same results are you get. Definitely will give it a whirl!

  3. Everyone does it differently. I prefer to go in a dropping tide near low tide but some people dig for them high on the beach. Depends on how deep the cockles are this season
  4. Reckon it will be busy this weekend. We normally go the first few days but this year, it has snuck up on us!!
  5. I've got an Iki gun as well but paid well less than half that price! They work extremely well but would never pay what they are asking now.
  6. Not sure you can use them. I used to buy mussels from SFS and ray and annes - all which came from port lincoln - but PIRSA decided that they were too much of a risk in our waters and have banned the sale and use of them!! I still have about 4.5 kilos in the freezer, which I'm using sparingly but will likely try harvesting them in the port when I run out - as they are gun whiting bait. Razorfish are also very, very good but harder to come across in metro adelaide (although there are some pockets if you know where to look). David
  7. I'm looking forward to doing a lot more fishing and having my shed back! Can't believe how big the business got - it was just getting too hard to manage while working full time. Actually used 7 tons of lead last year - crazy!!
  8. Hi all Just letting you know that 23 Aug to 18 Sept, Savage Tackle will be closing for a well deserved break When we open back up, you'll notice some minor changes. Simon Green, also from Northern Districts SportFishing Club, is our new business partner and will be the face of the company moving forward. The business will undergo a transition process over the coming months and I will be providing Simon with support to ensure the high standards and timeliness of deliveries continue to be a tradema
  9. Yes, I've got a couple. I mainly use the Mick's Jiggers, which are from a local guy who gets them through Rui). The pink, yellow and KGW ones are amazing. I still have a couple of yellow yamashita's but have moved away from the more expensive yozuri's - which I used to use exclusively. Rui is a great guy and stands by his products. They do work and they last as well David
  10. If you see a good sized GW, I'm sure you'll be paddling quick enough to be above the water
  11. I reckon all of the tentacles work on whiting - particularly when fresh. We keep a couple of heads for bait and the rest are for food!
  12. Put them in the scaling bag - and they'll be perfect
  13. That is why they closed it before but decided that whiting are in great numbers. Our catch rates agree with this - but most people complain they can't find them but many don't put in the time to understand where they are and why - and then understand the pattern. We haven't been out from the last public holiday but are heading out tomorrow. I'm hoping the whiting haven't moved in that time but will find out. Ideally, getting out every 2 to 3 weeks is best, as they do move as the seasons do David
  14. They had a ban on fishing for whiting on the bottom of yorkes - can't remember if it was for the month of April or May. BUT this was lifted. Can't see it going back, especially when they opened it due to such large amounts of whiting available. David
