  1. Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa The salmon on the surf beaches are hit and miss at the moment. There have been a few King George whiting reported in Waterloo Bay. Sheringa has seen Tommies, Whiting, Mullet and a few nice flathead caught by shore based bait anglers. Coffin Bay Big snook, Tommies and salmon trout are appearing in Coffin bay. There is also a few flathead, garfish and squid inside the bay. Soft plastics are accounting for most of the flathead. Out on the reefs, the Blue Morwong and Nannygai continue to keep anglers busy. The King George whiting have been more consistent along the ledge and out at Farm Beach, but undersized fish are plentiful, so make sure you measure all of your fish before putting them in the esky. Port Lincoln Blue Swimmer Crabs have started to appear in better numbers in Proper Bay. Size is a bit down at the moment, so make sure you have a crab measurer with you and stick to the regulations. Kingfish from 1 – 12KG have been reported around town but most hook-ups have resulted in anglers having less gear and the pontoons and jetties gaining some jewellery. Surface poppers and Shallow diving minnows have been the most popular lures for chasing these rat kingies. There have been some big, fat tommies and salmon trout reported between Stenross and the North Shore. Look for the working birds as they will show where the schools of baitfish are. Try surface lures for a bit of fun on the tommies and Salmon trout. Small tuna have been reported south of the passage. From the reports, they are under 5kg, but a good sign of things to come. Nannygai, Blue Morwong and other reef species continue to be plentiful and are being caught by both bait and jigs. Tumby Bay The group has seen some very nice king George whiting being caught, mostly around Spilsby Island, but all areas are worth a try. Cockles and squid have been the best baits. Silver trevally, salmon trout and tommies are plentiful in the marina and are good fun on light line and small minnow lures.

Port Lincoln A few Squid, snook and Garfish throughout local bays. King George Whiting are also being caught, however there are some smaller undersize fish having to be returned to the water. If you are chasing Whiting, you may have to deal with shittys and unwanted bycatch such as puffer fish if you use too much burley.

The day started off very cold but ended up being a fine, sunny day with moderate offshore winds. The big swell, strong rip along the beach did make conditions a bit trying. There were several schools of Salmon around however these mostly stayed out of casting range. Most of the salmon caught were by those using lures. Congratulations to Riley Peters who was overall winner on the day. For those who do not know Riley, he is an 11 year old boy & to watch him fishing is amazing...he has such an awareness of water safety & he ran up & down the beach all day, casting, retrieving & landing his fish unaided. When the fish were not biting he was changing tactics & back into the water!!!! Well done Riley!!!!! A special mention to everyone as all the fish were presented clean & free of sand. Well done!!!! Heaviest fish of the day was a 4.41 kg salmon caught by John Peters.

  13. Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa For anglers chasing Australian Salmon some days were better than others, with rough weather being a problem. Some decent fish were landed, however size was not consistent with Salmon weighing anywhere from 500grams to around 5 kilograms. The bigger fish were caught on pilchards with a few biggies being caught on metal lures. No other reports came from the area due to poor fishing conditions. Almonta / Gunyah Beach Very minimal reports this week, with a few anglers chasing Australian Salmon. Fish averaged around 2 kilograms, and were not in very big schools, and tended to be too far out to cast a metal lure to. Farm Beach King George Whiting has been the only species reported this week with some anglers finding some decent numbers, however size was lacking. Fish were averaging around 30cm so most anglers did have to check their size limit. Coffin Bay A few Salmon trout and Silver Trevally were caught throughout the bay. The odd King George Whiting was also reported coming from the bay. No reports came from anglers fishing offshore due to poor weather. Port Lincoln Australian Salmon are continuing their great run from most surf beaches, with the Lincoln National Park being the most consistent. Schools of fish can be identified along the Sleaford to Wanna coastline and anglers were having best success using metal lures casting at schools along the shoreline. Fish were averaging between 2-3 kilograms. As listed in the ‘Elliston / Sheringa’ section, bigger fish can be caught further up the coast (over 5 kilograms), however, these big fish were not schooling up. Most of the big schools of fish are more around 2-4 kilograms. Squid remain a popular target for anglers fishing from both shore and boat. Anglers managed to find decent numbers of squid throughout the day and into the night in most of the local bays. A smaller squid jig helped anglers who had difficulty catching squid consistently. Tumby Bay Mid sized King George Whiting were reported coming from the Group, along with some drops close to shore. Port Neill King George Whiting had been reported by boaties fishing over the ‘northern’ grounds. The jetty had reports of Tommies, and Squid during calmer conditions. Arno Bay Snapper out wide was the only thing reported this week, however anglers had a difficult time fishing through high swell. Cowell No reports came through this week.

  14. Hi Everybody, Here is this week's fishing report. Remember, if you have any photo's of that prized catch, just sent them to portlincoln@spotonfishing.com.au with a brief comment. Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa The Salmon Championship in Elliston has had it’s 3rd fortnightly mystery weight prize announced. Paul Elliot from Wudinna and Dave Billings from Port Lincoln share the prize, their salmon both weighed in at 2.985kg. Walker Rocks has King George Whiting and Tommies, Locks Well, Talia and most other beaches in the area have been producing large Australian Salmon consistently in the 3 – 4 Kg range. Sheringa has been producing King George Whiting, Tommies and some nice sized Mullet around First beach. On the Salmon beach, there have been a good run on 2-4 Kg Salmon and 2 whales were spotted on the weekend. Almonta / Gunyah Beach We have only had minimal reports come through the shop over the past week of Australian Salmon. Reports received have indicated only a few fish of up to 1.5Kg on pilchards. Farm Beach Good reports are filtering through the shop of catches of King George Whiting, however size is something that has been lacking. Squid have also been caught by boaties on good quality squid jigs. Garfish have been reported off the sandhills. Coffin Bay Fishing along the ledge remains quiet for land based anglers, but boaties are managing some good King George Whiting and Silver Trevally around the oyster leases. Offshore has seen good bags of Nannygai, Snapper and Blue Morwong being caught. There have also been a few reports of Samson Fish when the swell has allowed boaties to get out wider. Port Lincoln North Shields jetty for squid in the afternoon with some anglers finding their bag limit very quickly. Australian Salmon are continuing to run along the south coast with many anglers having great success. Best results are coming from anglers using metal lures casting towards a school of fish. Fishing generally improved if pilchards were used to create a burley mix. All local bays are firing with great results returned for anglers chasing Southern Calamari, during all tides and times of the day. Better results were usually due to anglers choosing a smaller sized squid jig or use something a bit more realistic such as a pin jig or teaser. During times of greater tidal movement; Yellowfin Whiting are being caught along the North Shore. Tumby Bay King George Whiting are reported being ‘in close’. Only a few reports came from the Group, however those that did fish the deeper grounds found larger sized fish. Port Neill The Port Neill area has been good for Tommies and Squid. King George Whiting have been consistent on the northern grounds. Arno Bay Only one report this week from Arno Bay. A few King George Whiting were caught in close on cockles. Cowell The inside harbour has seen a few squid and King George Whiting caught. No reports from the outer harbour. Port Lincoln Anglers Club 16 members + 1 visitor attended the first event of the new season to Wisemans Beach on Sunday 5th July. Fishing was tough due to the high tide & big swells.

  15. 5 year old Alexis is pictured with a couple of big squid caught off the Port Neill jetty recently. Now for what was biting & where Elliston Good reports of decent Tommies from the jetty, with reasonable numbers of Garfish. Reports from Talia and Mount Camel Beach are of salmon mostly around 1 kg. Locks Well There are plenty of large Tommies, salmon trout and a few larger salmon around 3 kg. Sheringa Fishing on the first beach has been good with mixed bags of mullet, Tommies and salmon trout plus a few nice size whiting and flathead. When the swell has been down the cliffs have had sweep. On the salmon beaches there are plenty of small salmon and a few bigger ones. Almonta/Gunyah Beach Still very few reports from these areas. One angler reported fishing Gunyah all day for 5 salmon around 2kg. Any info you’ve heard please let us know at Spot On. Farm Beach Whiting bit well around the Sticks, Point Longnose to the Sandhill’s, Gallipoli and the Frenchman. Offshore the snapper and nanny’s were ok. Coffin Bay There are plenty of Tommies and salmon trout around. Popular places to try from the shore are by the boat ramp and off the jetty or otherwise opposite the channel along the Ledge and at Seal Corner where there was a few whiting as well. Port Lincoln So far this winter season has been kind to whiting anglers with fish in local bays. As well as the whiting, squid numbers have also been good. Along the south coast, a few schools of large salmon have been seen and caught at Millers Hole and beaches back to Wanna. Patient anglers are getting a few fish around 2 to 4kg amongst the smaller salmon trout. Yellow fin whiting are still going well along the foreshore on the better tides. If snapper, morwong and nannygai are the targets Thorny Passage and Williams Island is going well. Tumby Bay Very good catches of whiting anywhere from 33 to 50cm, red mullet and squid were found out at the Group. Second Creek had salmon trout and squid out from the entrance. Tumby jetty had squid and occasional whiting. Port Neill Boats are doing ok on squid, snook, whiting and Tommies and the jetty has plenty of squid plus the usual Tommies and a small number of snook. A few rugger snapper were around the inshore reefs. Local beaches have been quiet for yellowfin whiting. Arno Bay Out wide the snapper are still going strong on soft plastics. Inshore is pretty good for whiting and squid. Cowell Good numbers of yellowfin whiting have been on the chew but will most likely go off the bite around the new moon in June with the first run of bloodworms. Port Lincoln Anglers Club This Sunday the 21st of June will be an open event 6 of a species comp 8am to 4pm.

  16. In the picture, we have a nice bag of Whiting caught in Proper Bay by Dennis Miller and Darren Towers. The biggest one measured 45cm’s. Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa The first week of the Elliston Salmon competition has produced plenty of interest towards the township and surrounding areas. Rod Elson from Arno bay has collected the first ‘mystery weight’ prize, with his salmon weighing in at 0.74kg, with the mystery weight being 0.561kgs. Most Salmon caught came from Locks well and Talia beach with some big fish being weighed. Almonta / Gunyah Beach Mostly small salmon up to 2kg have been caught over the last week by anglers. All methods have been working, but due to the lack of schools, Pilchards seem to be the best bait. Farm Beach Boaties fishing out from Farm Beach, and Little Douglass had reported good catches of King George Whiting, and Silver Trevally. The Frenchman area has had reports of bigger King George Whiting throughout deeper drops, with a lot of smaller fish in shallower areas. Coffin Bay Big Silver Trevally are being caught throughout most of the oyster leases, along with plenty of legal sized King George Whiting. For boaties heading out offshore Nannygai and Snapper had been a popular target over the past week. Weather conditions did make it difficult for some anglers and charters to venture out past Point Sir Isaac. Port Lincoln The main wharf has had reports of heaps of Tommy Roughs, with plenty of Salmon Trout also being caught. The North Shore has had mixed reports of anglers chasing King George Whiting. Some anglers were able to find a feed of medium to large sized fish, with one being reported at 59cm. Please keep in mind that the King George Whiting is known to be spawning over the next few months, so only take what you need, and consider releasing larger fish if they are in a healthy state and especially if they appear to be spawning or have a bulging belly as it is likely for them to be full of roe. Boston Bay has had anglers chasing Garfish with good success throughout calmer weather conditions. Squid or had also been a popular target over the past week with anglers picking up plenty of these cephalopods. You may have to try a few different sizes and colours of squid jags to find one with consistent results. Tumby Bay The Sir Joseph Banks Group has had many anglers chasing King George Whiting over the past week. Most reports indicate that fish being caught are of good size, however are not of that ‘fat’ winter whiting the Group is known for. Port Neill Squid, Tommies and Garfish have been caught from the jetty when conditions are right Arno Bay Snapper tend to have picked up recently with reports coming in from anglers fishing all depths of water. In close sheltered protected areas most reports are of ‘ruggers’ with larger fish coming from deeper offshore drops.

  17. Now for what was biting and where Elliston Salmon to 3.5kg were going good at Locks Well. The jetty had tommies, gar and the odd snook after dark. Land based anglers found whiting off the rocks. Sheringa Salmon are around the beaches of varying sizes. Whiting, tommies and mullet came from First Beach. Almonta / Gunyah Beach A few salmon around 2kg were found on bait and lures. Farm Beach King George Whiting are being caught by boaties fishing all areas surrounding Farm Beach. Reports indicate that fish are not miles out to sea, with some land based anglers returning good results. The only thing common being reported is size of fish. Most fish being caught had to be measured Coffin Bay Tuna have slowed down, however are still continuing to be sighted and caught by anglers fishing offshore. Reports indicate the fish tend to be hanging around Greenly and Rocky Islands. Snapper and Nannygai are keeping boaties fed. Try light rods and small jigs for a bit of fun and to keep you warm. Port Lincoln Squid are being caught in good numbers around dawn and dusk. There tends to be no particular area in which these are being caught, with most anglers having success. Whiting averaging 32 to 36cm were reported along the North Shore, Proper and Porter Bay, Taylors Landing and Thistle Island with occasional bigger fish around 40cm. A few 5 to 7kg tuna have been landed south of the Passage. A few Samson fish have been reported from reefs around the Passage and further out. We have had a few reports of some thumper Garfish being caught locally. Gents are the best bait along with some surface burley. Tumby Bay Whiting were hit and miss at the Group but if you found them you could get your limit. Squid and Snook were around as well. The jetty and shallows had mullet and squid. Port Neill Squid and Snook have been landed by boaties and off the jetty where there’s tommies as well. Salmon to 3 pounds came from the beach at Carrow Wells. Good size whiting are going well on northern grounds but snapper have been quiet. Arno Bay Snapper have improved out wide with ruggers and bigger fish found. Whiting and squid are about in closer with a few snapper as well. Port Lincoln Anglers Club 18 members + 2 visitors attended the outing to the Ledge/ Dutton East & Coffin Bay area. The fishing was difficult with many members not even getting a bite all day and only 5 members getting a species of fish. Overall winner of the day was John Peters narrowly edging out Donna Peters with a count back for weight. Both Donna & John caught 1 species + 5 fish but Johns bag was slightly heavier.

Tristan pictured with what he most wanted to catch, a 35kg popper caught GT. (Guide Andy Smith on the right) Now for what was biting and where Elliston The jetty is still proving reliable for tommies and squid. Sheringa Tommies, whiting and mullet were caught off the First Beach and a few salmon were found in the surf. Farm Beach Boaties found whiting and squid but report that launching from the beach can be tricky due to piles of dead seaweed. Coffin Bay Still hearing good reports of whiting in the bays both for boaties and land based anglers fishing the rock ledges. The odd snapper was rumoured to be around Seal Corner and Goats Head. Port Lincoln Yellowfin whiting along the foreshore were biting well before the tides slowed towards the dodge. The jetty and main wharf had squid, salmon trout, tommies and the odd king George. Boaties found whiting in the Proper, North Shore, Spalding Cove, Porter Bay, Taylors Landing and Carcass Rock. Tumby Bay Squid and mullet can be found off the jetty and around the bay. Whiting in close were not big but at the Group were in better size and numbers. Port Neill Tommies, squid and the odd snook were found along the jetty and breakwater.

  19. Elliston Shore based anglers found a few whiting from Waterloo and Anxious Bay beaches. Large squid and tommies bit off the jetty after dark for those who braved the cold. Sheringa Whiting, Salmon, Mullet, Tommies and Flathead have all been reported with the recent calm conditions. The beaches have been fairly flat since the big swells last week, but the gutters and holes are forming again, so the fishing should improve this week. Almonta / Gunyah Beach No report received this week, but we know a few anglers headed down there on the weekend to take advantage of the nice weather. Farm Beach Boaties are hooking a lot of small King George Whiting, so be sure to check their minimum size limit of 30cm. Reports of squid are still coming in from Farm Beach drops. Coffin Bay Mixed bags of Whiting, Tommies, Trevally, Snook and Salmon trout were caught inside Coffin Bay. Some anglers had to work hard for a feed, but those boaties that were willing to move around frequently got better catches. Port Lincoln Tommies are being caught in reasonable numbers throughout local bays and jetties. Yellowfin Whiting were caught along the foreshore when tides were good. Some nice Snook have been caught on small diving minnows at night from the jetties and boats. Squid continue to be on the chew, especially as the sun is setting or rising. King George Whiting have been hit or miss, with some anglers doing very well and others missing out. Most fish were caught by boaties fishing Boston Bay, the North Shore, Proper bay, Taylors, Carcase Rock, Thistle Island and Porter Bay. Some land based anglers found some decent patches of fish in Proper Bay and the North Shore. Be patient from the shore, as the fish seem to be moving around a lot most days. Squid caught in the bays were sometimes on the small side however those caught outside the bay were up to 1.5kg. There was some small tuna caught at Rocky Island recently. Tumby Bay Second Creek had salmon around a kilo plus a few King George Whiting. Small boats fishing close to shore around Tumby found some good numbers of Whiting, Mullet and a few squid. Port Neill Try the Jetty for Squid, Whiting, Snook and Garfish when the tides are at their peak. Arno Bay Some good Whiting fishing has been had by boaties and land based anglers. Cockles have been the pick of the baits. Cowell A few anglers have been through our shop and advised that there are King George Whiting around. There have been some good fish caught in amongst the smaller ones. It sounds like the Blue Swimmer Crabs are on their way out of here too now, with only one angler mentioning that he got a few last weekend. Port Lincoln Anglers Club 16 members attended this outing, fishing in the tumby bay region. A lot of members managed to catch a species of Tommy ruff but for lots it meant a continuous move of position to get these. Other species of fish caught were trout, leatherjackets, zebra fish & a few mullet & whiting. Overall winner of the day was Leon Paterson. Division winners: Veterans:1/. Leon Paterson with 2 species + 4 fish for 120 points 2/. Allan Stagg with 1 species + 6 fish for 80 points Men: 1/. Damien Paterson with 1 species + 8 fish for 90 points 2/.

  20. Elliston Big squid were landed off the jetty and tommies were on after dark. Mullet, salmon and a few whiting were caught from Salmon Point Sheringa The First beach had mullet, whiting, salmon trout and the odd flathead. Salmon from the beaches ranged in size from 1 to 3kg. Almonta / Gunyah Beach Salmon averaging 1 to 2kg were in reasonable numbers with the odd 3 to 4kg fish as well. Farm Beach Boaties fishing the area are returning good results on King George Whiting and Squid. Further offshore there has been nannygai and a few snapper. Coffin Bay The jetty and rock ledges have had better than average whiting, tommies, mullet, snook and salmon trout. Rumours of some snapper have been heard. Port Lincoln Squid are going well from local jettys and bays, especially in the afternoon or into evening sessions. King George Whiting continue to be hit and miss with many mixed reports. Most anglers catching fish had caught them on the incoming tide and fishing into the evening. Yellowfin Whiting are being caught in reasonable numbers along the foreshore when the tides are good. Worms or small prawns are the best bait to catch them, however if you wanted to try something different; use a soft plastic worm or shrimp. The main wharf still has good catches of Tommies, and Salmon trout throughout the day and night. Australian Salmon had been caught throughout the week, with some land based anglers finding good schools of fish in local bays. Small metal slugs returned the best results. Salmon were also found along the Sleaford to Wanna coastline when the winds were favourable. Tumby Bay Second creek had salmon around 1kg and squid out from the entrance. Squid and winter whiting were found inshore as well as out at the Group. Port Neill Whiting were ok on northern drops and some rugger snapper came from the inshore reefs. Salmon trout, mullet and yellowfin whiting were off the beaches. Tommies and squid came from the jetty/breakwater and Snook were caught on lures after dark Arno Bay Inshore and the squid and whiting bit well. Out wide snapper to 8kg were in small numbers with ruggers much more prevalent. This week's Port Lincoln fishing report is supplied by Port Lincoln Fishing and Outdoors - Port Lincoln
  21. Pictured is Joseph Perin with a nice handful of squid that he caught in local waters last weekend. Squid are a good option at the moment and make for excellent table fare and the leftovers make good baits for most other fish. Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa Smaller schools of Salmon up to 2Kg have been reported in the area. King George Whiting can be caught from the beach at Sheringa, but check the size as lots are just under the legal minimum. Almonta / Gunyah Beach Recent reports are that there have been very few Salmon this week. There are only a few gutters and holes, so make sure that you look for those to increase your chances. Farm Beach Plenty of Whiting up to 38cm have been caught by boaties. A few Squid have been caught on baited jigs and Yamashita King George Whiting jigs during the day by boaties. Coffin Bay Out wide of Coffins there was the occasional Tuna and Samson fish have been caught around Rocky and Greenly Islands with Nannygai and Rugger Snapper in better numbers. Lucanus Jigs have been very effective for the Nannygai. Work them up and down slowly close to the bottom for the best chance to catch some tasty reef fish. Inside Coffin Bay there has been whiting, salmon trout, tommies and gar. Port Lincoln The main wharf has been going well for Tommies and Salmon trout. Try Sleaford to Wanna for Australian Salmon from undersize through to 3 kilograms, with best results coming from metal lures such as Halco Twistys, or Mucho Lucir from 30-70 grams. Although Salmon were not always in schools, using a few crushed pilchards as burley will attract more fish to the area. The North Shore continues to provide anglers with good catches of King George Whiting, Squid, and Garfish. Anglers fishing local bays around Port Lincoln whether land based or in a boat, are producing good catches of Squid of all sizes, some good legal garfish, plenty of Tommies, and the odd flathead. King George Whiting have been a bit hit and miss, with very mixed reports, however most anglers had been able to find a feed. Yellowfin whiting big well with the recent high tides with fish caught between North Shields and the Town Jetty. Tumby Bay Try the town jetty for big Tommies, and some good sized Squid at night. There have also been a few King George Whiting caught during the day while the tide is high. Port Neill Some good King George Whiting and Garfish are being reported as well as some big Squid. Cockles and Gents are the pick of the baits here. Arno Bay Boaties are returning good results of Squid, and King George Whiting both north and south of Arno. Snapper being caught are mostly rugger’s with best results coming from out wide. Cowell There have been reports of excellent numbers of King George Whiting being caught around Cowell. Both boaties and shore anglers have been doing well with the average size being well above the legal minimum.

  22. It looks like winter has arrived! The good news is that the wind has finally slowed down and we should be in for some calm days out on the water. There are still some good fishing options out there, so put on some thermals and go fishing. Now for what was biting and where. Elliston / Sheringa Salmon from 1 to 3kg were caught from the surf along with very big tommies and salmon trout. Whiting were off First Beach. Almonta / Gunyah Beach Salmon around 2 – 3 kilograms are being caught on both metal lures and pilchard baits along the beaches. Best results tend to be coming from anglers fishing early morning or fishing the incoming tide. Farm Beach King George Whiting around 32 to 36cm are being caught by boaties fishing both in close and further off shore. Squid and Garfish were also popular catches by boaties. Coffin Bay Salmon trout and small Silver Trevally are being caught throughout the bay at all times of the day, biting on just about any bait presented to them. King George Whiting around 30- 38cm are being caught predominately by boaties, however a few reports of good plump fish did come from land based fishos within the area. Offshore Snapper and Nannygai continue to provide boaties with consistent catches with all methods working. Port Lincoln The town jetty is returning good catches of Tommies and Squid, and is seeing some decent catches of Yellowfin Whiting as well as along the foreshore. At the main wharf Australian Salmon from trout size up to 1.5 kilograms are being caught during times of pilchard boats unloading. Good catches of Tommies can also be caught. Try the National Park for Australian Salmon up to 3 kilograms, especially from the Sleaford to Wanna coastline. King George Whiting around 32-40cm have been caught in Proper Bay. Blue Swimmer Crabs have all but gone now. Try the North Shore for King George Whiting, good numbers of Squid, and Garfish. Tumby Bay The town jetty had Tommies, Garfish, and Squid. A few mullet are being caught from the foreshore and jetty. Port Neill The jetty has some good size Squid and Tommies, and the odd Garfish. Some Yellowfin Whiting and Mullet are being caught from the beaches. Arno Bay No reports received. Cowell No reports received. Port Lincoln Anglers Club 11 members fished the final event of the light line competition on 26th April. This was an open event with most members fishing locally. Fish were hard to find despite the weather being favourable. The days results will not be released as the final championship points for the light line event is very close. These results will be made known at the annual presentation night later this year. The heaviest fish of the day was a 320 gm Leatherjacket caught by Damien Paterson on 2 kg line class. The mystery weight fish was a 110 gm Trout caught by Kerry Paterson on 2 kg line class. Next outing will be on Sunday May 17th in the Tumby Bay area. Leaving the clubrooms at 8AM sharp.

  23. The 2015 Riviera Port Lincoln Tuna Classic has been run and won. 18 Boats landed 324 Bluefin Tuna between them. Most anglers caught fish on Saturday, but Sunday proved a lot harder to find the fish with only a few caught. Results: CHAMPION BOAT – THE BATTLER, 49, Most Fish, CHAMPION MALE ANGLER – ADRIAN BOTHUR, THE BATTLER, 18 Fish, CHAMPION FEMALE ANGLER - SUSAN TARBOTTON, TARI, 19 Fish, CHAMPION JUNIOR ANGLER – SAM CZABAYSKI, SPARTACUS, 7 Fish. Well done to all involved and congratulations to the winners. Pictured this week is Phill Pike with a 65cm Snapper caught in Coffin Bay. Phills advice is to use fresh Salmon as bait. Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa The Jetty has seen good number of Tommies, Gar and Squid. Boaties have been doing well in Anxious bay for good sized King George Whiting and Locks Well has seen Salmon up to 4Kg and large Tommies. Sheringa has the usual suspects, Tommies, King George Whiting and some flathead and the Salmon beach has seen salmon between 2 and 4 kg. Almonta / Gunyah Beach There have been reports of a few small schools of Salmon along the beaches. Fish in the 2-3 Kg bracket have been caight with Pilchard baits accounting for most fish. Farm Beach There have been some good reports from around Farm beach saying that there have been some good sized King George Whiting being caught. Cockles and Mussels fished in the deeper water and around drop offs seem to be the best way to get the bigger fish. Coffin Bay Around the Ledge continues to be the pick of the spots for some nice sized King George Whiting. There have also been reports of a few Snapper and Gummy sharks caught in the deeper areas of Coffin Bay. Anglers continue to see Kingfish in shallow water, but not many have been caught. Surface lures and big soft plastics would be a good way to have some fun with these fish. Offshore has seen plenty of Bluefin Tuna being caught between Sir Isaacs and The Hummocks. Diving minnows such as XRAPS and Halco Lasers and skirted lures in Purple or Green seem to be accounting for most fish. Dropping jigs around any of the deep lumps have accounted for many Nannygai and Snapper over the last week. The Shimano Butterfly jig continues to be the hot jig from most reports and colour does not seem to matter. Port Lincoln Proper bay still has a few nice Blue Swimmer Crabs getting around, but the run seems to have slowed down elsewhere. Squid seem to be increasing in numbers and size with all methods working well. Yellowfin Whiting and Mullet have been caught along the foreshore between the Town Jetty and the Silos with local prawn and cockles being the best baits. Offshore has seen the Bluefin Tuna go a bit quiet, but with all of the bait schools around at the moment, the fish will be concentrating on whitebait and pilchard sized meals, so try smaller minnows and skirts. Everything from Swallowtail to big Samson Fish have been caught on jigs. The Butterfly type jigs seem to be the pick here as well, with them accounting for many good fish of all species over the last few weeks. Tumby Bay The Group has seen a reasonable run of King George Whiting with some big fish in amongst them. Some large Snook and Squid have been caught in 3 – 5 meters of water by boaties. Some Yellowfin Whiting have been spotted along the beaches and Squid, Snook and Garfish have been caught from the Jetty. Port Neill Lots of different species have been caught from the Jetty.
