  5. 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. This week's Port Lincoln fishing report is supplied by Port Lincoln Fishing and Outdoors - Port Lincoln
  6. Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa There are still plenty of good sized salmon from the surf beaches, both around Elliston and Sheringa. There are boaties returning good reports on King George Whiting, and Squid from within Anxious bay. The Elliston jetty is having anglers return good results if they are targeting Tommies, Garfish, and Squid. Sheringa’s First beach has had reports of the odd Flathead, and some fat Tommies. Almonta / Gunyah Beach Not too many schools of Salmon are being spotted by anglers fishing Almonta and Gunya, however some decent fish were still caught. Most anglers did best using metal lures, casting into deep gutters, as well as using pilchards for burley. Farm Beach Boaties are doing well on King George Whiting and Nannygai from deeper water. Coffin Bay Sir Isaacs is going well on big Nannygai, blue morwong and silver trevally. Within the bay, land based anglers are doing okay on Silver Trevally, Tommies, some Garfish, and the odd King George Whiting. Port Lincoln Boaties are doing well on King George Whiting throughout local bays, however beware that the shittys are showing up if you use to much burley, especially if it is pellet based. Try a crushed muscle mixture instead. The Passage is going well on Nannygai and other reef species. Not too many reports over the past week for Blue swimmer crabs, however some are still being caught on whiting lines in local bays. Australian Salmon are hit and miss throughout the Lincoln national park, however most anglers using metal lures do return good results. Tumby Bay The group has been the spot for a few nice king george whiting. Cockles are the best bait with cruched mussel as berley. Squid have been quiet in the bay, but the few being caught are of a good size. Port Neill Try the jetty for a mixed bag of fish. Squid, tommies, salmon trout and garfish have all been caught this week. Arno Bay With the snapper ban in place, boaties have concentrated on king george whiting and squid. Not too many reports of blue swimmer crabs or yellowfin whiting yet, but they should be appearing soon. Cowell Anglers on the jetty and around the inner harbour have been finding the whiting and squid a bit scarce, but there are plenty of tommies around to keep them busy. There are some good sized snook and garfish being caught by boaties. This week's Port Lincoln fishing report is supplied by Port Lincoln Fishing and Outdoors - Port Lincoln
  7. A reminder that the Snapper season is now closed until midday the 15th of December. Any snapper accidentally caught while targeting other species must be returned to the water immediately. Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa Try the Elliston jetty for some decent sized Squid, and plenty of Tommies. Sheringa is having reports of Tommies, King George Whiting, Mullet, and the odd Flathead. Almonta / Gunyah Beach A few reports of good sized salmon have come from here. Most anglers have reported that there are no schools or very small schools of fish visible, but if you cast metal lures or pilchards into the gutters and holes, there are plenty of fish around. Farm Beach Some nice king george whiting and silver trevally have been caught in 2-6 meters of water. Cockles and squid have been the pick of the baits. Coffin Bay Some good Nannygai, blue morwong and swallowtail are being caught from offshore drops and around Sir Isaacs. Jigs and baits have both been very successful. Inside the bay, anglers have been doing well along the ledge for nice sized king george whiting and the odd flathead and silver trevally. The kingfish seem to be hanging around inside the sanctuary zones, so if you chase these fish, please make sure that you stay outside of the boundaries. 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. Some decent size Blue Swimmer Crabs are starting to show up, however there are a lot that are undersize and a few females carrying eggs. Australian Salmon can be hit and miss around the Sleaford to Wanna coastline. Some anglers reported doing really well, especially casting metal lures towards schools, where as other anglers strangely didn’t manage to land any fish. Tumby Bay Boat anglers are doing well on squid and king george whiting in the bay and out around the group. Most of the whiting don’t need to be measured as they are well above the legal minimum. Cockles are the best bait, but catches are improved by using a good berley to keep the fish interested. Port Neill Try the jetty and breakwater for some Tommies, Garfish, and Squid. Boaties are doing well on King George Whiting both north and south of the town. Arno Bay The jetty has had anglers doing well on Squid. Boaties are reporting good catches of King George Whiting Cowell The inner harbour has seen some nice blue swimmer crabs, king george whiting, salmon trout, tommies and silver trevally caught. Port Lincoln Anglers Club 18 members attended the outing to Frenchman on Sunday 25th October. The weather was fine however the strong winds & 1.8 metre swell did make some tricky conditions. Welcome to Jock Peters on his first saltwater event with the club. Jock did really well scoring 115 points however Wayne Bockman edged him out of first place in his division,beating him by bag weight. Overall winner of the day was John Peters. Division Winners: Veterans 1/. Wayne Bockman with 1 species + 13 fish for 115 points 2/. Jock Peters with 2 species + 3 fish for 115 points Men: 1/.

Leaving clubrooms at 8am. This week's Port Lincoln fishing report is supplied by Port Lincoln Fishing and Outdoors - Port Lincoln
  8. Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa Some good size Australian Salmon are being reported right along this coast. Fish to 4Kg are still being caught by bait and lure anglers. Almonta / Gunyah Beach Better salmon catches when berley was used as salmon schools were not prevalent. Most fish are in small schools or loners hanging around the deeper gutters. Coffin Bay / Farm Beach King George Whiting are being caught by boaties fishing around the Farm Beach area. Silver Trevally are keeping anglers amused when using light gear. Some Snapper from rugger’s through to larger specimens are being caught, along with good reports of Nannygai from off shore lumps. Port Lincoln Squid and garfish are spread throughout local bays and are being caught from jetties. The Sleaford to Wanna coast had visible salmon schools on the weekend but most were out of casting range. King George Whiting are being caught in most popular spots with Thistle Island being the most consistent area. Try the Passage for Nannygai, blue morwong and the odd rugger Snapper. There are still a few schools of Samson fish for those calm days when boaties can get out wide. Tumby Bay King George Whiting for boaties were hard to find in close or out at the Group. Some rugger Snapper to 55cm were found offshore. Port Neill Garfish in bay and off the jetty and breakwater. Boaties are doing well on King George Whiting. Arno Bay Whiting are scarce in close. To get a feed, boaties are moving about with only 1 or 2 fish per drop. Cowell The inner harbour has some blue swimmer crabs and a few Trevally, King george and Yellowfin whiting. This week's Port Lincoln fishing report is supplied by Port Lincoln Fishing and Outdoors - Port Lincoln
  9. METRO Signs of crabs improving with better catches coming in. Some areas like Semaphore are still working hard to get a feed of legal ones. Deeper water around the 7-8 metre mark are producing better size. North of the black pole are doing better but again out in deeper water. The northern beaches are fairing the best with good size crabs and even a few for the rakers. Garfish are steadily getting better along with some nice tommies. Try Brighton, Grange, Semaphore, Silt grounds, Black pole and Port Gawler. Some ruggers are starting to filter in around Brighton and this weekends tides should improve the catches. Whiting are still being caught at Brighton, the Bag ground and some good catches are coming from the Black Pole. Snook have been doing well with some nice catches coming from the jetties late and early in the day. Squid catches continue to be strong especially around the West beach area and Glenelg. Port river has been a bit slow but there are still some nice salmon trout from the north arm down to St Kilda. West Lakes is still firing with bream. Best baits have been prawns, fresh frozen worms and live worms. YORKE PENINSULA Snapper are starting to show in Spencer Gulf with some nice fish coming from Jurassic Park, Stanta Anna, Corney Point, West of Balgowan and some ruggers at the Tippara reef. In St Vincent things have been a bit slow but Stansbury had some snapper a couple of weeks ago and Edithburgh is still getting some nice fish. Garfish are also out at the Tippara light, Wallaroo near messangers, Port Victoria near rocky, Ardrossan, Stansbury in bay and Edithburgh. Whiting catches are still going strong at Port Hughes, Balgowan, Chinamans Well, Port Victoria, Hardwick Bay, Edithburgh,Point Turton and there are a few big fish hanging around the Stansbury oyster leases. Squid are doing well at Port Hughes, Port Victoria, Point Turton, Edithburgh, Marion Bay, north of Stansbury past the spit, Ardrossan and Wallaroo. Jetties have been doing well on squid also with Wool Bay, Edithburgh, Moonta, Port Hughes, Ardrossan and Wallaroo being the better areas. Snook are in big numbers around Port Victoria, Edithburgh, Port Hughes and Wallaroo towards Bird Island.Port Broughton is doing well on crabs and garfish but the whiting have slowed. There is also some nice flathead being caught. Elsewhere the crabs are getting into the full swing with Ardrossan, Port Julia, Black Point, Stansbury, Moonta, Wallaroo being the better areas. SOUTH Big tuna continue to be caught around Cape Jaffa with fish slowly moving west. Some small mulloway have been caught at Salt creek but generally has been slow. Some mulloway came from the Goolwa beach but again were small. Plenty of mullet and salmon trout are in the Coorong. Waitpinga and Parsons are still getting some nice salmon trout along with some bigger fish at night. Rapid bay has tommies, garfish and squid but the fish can be small at times. Second Valley has some nice squid early in the mornings. FRESHWATER Not much to tell other than plenty of callop around Big Bend and north of Blanchtown. Yabbies seem to be scarce but the is plenty of shrimp. Big carp are being caught in the backwaters along with a lot of small silver perch and catfish in the river.

  10. Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa The Elliston jetty is returning good reports of Tommies, and Squid. Best catch results are coming from anglers fishing early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Some big Australian Salmon are being caught along Mount Camel beach, with some fish up around the five kilogram mark. First Beach at Sheringa has seen anglers returning good results on Tommies, King George Whiting, Silver Trevally, and Yelloweye Mullet. The Salmon beach has had a school of Australian Salmon hanging around the area for some time, with some decent fish around 4 kilograms being caught in amongst smaller 2 kilogram fish. Almonta / Gunyah Beach Australian Salmon have quietened down this past week, with anglers finding it very difficult to find consistent fish. Some trout sized Salmon were reported being caught on metal lures. Coffin Bay / Farm Beach King George Whiting are being reported caught by boaties fishing the Farm Beach area, with most reports coming from anglers fishing deeper water. Nannygai and the odd Snapper were reported being caught around the Sir Isaacs area by boaties. Port Lincoln The Proper Bay is having some reports returned for both boaties and land based fisho’s. Garfish were a popular species, along with King George Whiting, which were both caught in reasonable numbers. A few Blue Swimmer Crabs had also been reported this past week from within the area. Boston Bay has been reasonable for boaties if chasing King George Whiting, Squid, Garfish, and Snook. Tumby Bay The Group has had minimal reports this past week, with some boaties finding it very difficult to get a decent feed of King George Whiting. Some reports did come through of anglers trying a little closer to the mainland, however did not disclose the location of where they were fishing. Those that did get a few whiting reported that they were of very good size and condition. The Tumby jetty is having good reports of Squid being caught at all times of the day and night. Port Neill Popular species being caught around the jetty and breakwater area include; Tommies, and Squid. Boaties are reporting some good catches of King George Whiting and some Snook.

Squid are being reported in good number by both boaties and land based anglers. Cowell Some Blue Swimmer Crabs are returning into both Cowell and Lucky Bay areas. Some anglers reported decent sized blueys, full of meat, however others mentioned that a lot were undersize and appeared skinny.

  11. METRO Whiting catches have been quite good in areas around Brighton, West Beach and surprisingly St Kilda. People have been getting a nice feed around the Black Pole with catches ranging from a dozen to 24 fish before they go off. Garfish have been small but there is some good fish north of the Bastard Pole and some nice ones have also showed up at the Norma Wreck. Brighton has a mix of gar and tommies. Snook are in full breading mode and can be caught on the weed beds in around 2.5-3.5 metres of water. Some nice tommies are coming from Grange jetty but there is a lot of smaller ones to contend with. This year would have to be one of the best squidding seasons with squid holding still in most areas and jetties. Nice bream are coming from West Lakes along with some schoolies at the southern end. Occasionally there are some mulloway back from the outlet off the beaches. Port river has some nice salmon trout mainly from the north arm right up to St Kilda. Some fish have gone 1 kilo. The northern beaches are doing well for yellowfin and crabs when raking. Stick to the channels as the weed can be very boggy. Should be good fun for the kids. YORKE PENINSULA Crabs are showing up at Port Broughton, Wallaroo, Port Hughes, Price, Ardossan and Stansbury. Some nice salmon and flathead are at the mouth of the Price creek with some Yakkers getting towed by the salmon. Snapper have been slow but a few are starting to show around Edithburgh and Corney Point. Some shore base anglers have been getting some ruggers off the reef at Gleeson's Landing. Whiting have been good in the Spencer gulf with fish from Turton right up to Port Broughton. Fish the cork weed beds this time of year and move when they go off the bite but only move several hundred metres as the schools move around. Garfish are at the Port Hughes light in good numbers, also try Port Broughton, Wallaroo near Bird and also Port Victoria. Squid again are in very good numbers on the jetties and boat. Best spots have been Rickaby, Port Vic, Port Hughes, Edithburgh and Wool Bay. Salmon schools have been cruising around Troubridge but they don't seem to be holding, Browns has been slow but the has been some nice schools at Royston and Dolphin beach, along with plenty of tommies. Pondi has some nice flathead and whiting off the beach using soft plastics. Marion Bay has squid off the jetty and out from the jetty is some nice size whiting. SOUTH Well you all know about the barrel tuna so the only thing I can tell you is that better catches have come from Cape Jaffa. Salt Creek has been slow of late but that doesn't mean there is no fish. This place is where you have to put in the time but it will pay off. Waitpinga beach is still producing salmon and salmon trout in good numbers. FRESHWATER Even though there isn't a lot of flow there has been some yabbies around near the deeper waters near the opening of the backwaters. Shrimp are becoming more plentiful and the callop seem to be really playing the game. Castles Landing, Big Bend, Manuum, Blacnchetown, Cadell and Cobdogla being the better places. Been a slow week for us so please support us when you can. We do have more info at the shop.

  12. Pictured is Toby Harris who is 5 years old. Toby went out on a boat fishing for the first time ever and managed to land this 41cm whiting. Very nice for a first ever fish. Also, National Parks have informed us that the tracks to Millers and Salmon holes have been reopened. Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa Talia and Mount Camel beaches had salmon between 2 and 4 kilograms, mullet and some nice size trevally up to 40cm. Try the Jetty for tommies, garfish and squid. Anxious Bay has seen some nice king george whiting and walker rocks has had reports of a few nice flathead. Sheringa has reported king george whiting, tommies and mullet from first beach. Almonta / Gunyah Beach Australian Salmon averaging 2-4 kilograms are being caught along the beach, with best results returned to anglers using metal lures. Farm Beach Whiting are being caught by boaties, but the legal sized ones are still tending to be in deeper water. Some boaties are returning to shore with some Nannygai Coffin Bay Offshore there has been nannygai and snapper with small tuna reported at Rocky and Greenly Islands. Silver Trevally Whiting averaging just over and under the legal size limit Port Lincoln Nannygai are being caught in good numbers, along with the odd Snapper and Blue Morwong throughout the passage and lumps beyond. Reports of small Tuna averaging 7kg have come in from South Neptune Island and surrounding areas. Lots of boats fished between Point Boston and Point Bolingbroke on the weekend with mixed results on whiting, most squid caught were on the small side. Sleaford to Wanna had 2 to 4 kg salmon and sharks were sighted near Lone Pine due to the dead Minke whale that has washed up on the beach. Tumby Bay The Group has been very hit and miss for king george whiting. Mussel berley helps keep the fish in the area and on the bite when you do find them. Some very nice garfish have been reported in the bay and some nice squid from the jetty have kept local anglers busy. Port Neill Big squid have been reported along with plenty of tommies. Try the northern grounds for a few king george whiting to 35cm. Arno Bay King george whiting have been very patchy, but good numbers of squid have been caught from the jetty. Not too many reports of snapper yet, but they should pick up over the next few weeks. This week's Port Lincoln fishing report is supplied by Port Lincoln Fishing and Outdoors - Port Lincoln
  13. Sorry guys n girls, I'm a bit late passing this on this week due to family health issues. METRO Garfish have been spasmodic but there is a feed at Semaphore, Bower road ground and some at the silt grounds. Norma is also worth a try as well. Whiting have been in good numbers around Hendley and Brighton areas on the patches in 5-6 metres of water. Nice ruggers are near the broadway and just north of Brighton jetty. Squid seem to be in good numbers from Brighton and upto the silt grounds. Crabs are mixed sizes but there is a feed around. Best spots for the crabs have come from the Semaphore area but north of Port Gawler have better size. YORKE PENINSULA Whiting are still in good numbers off kemps at Port Hughes, Port Victoria north of Beatrice and the reef, Soutter and the drift grounds around Hardwick Bay, Edithburgh also has some nice whiting. Snapper are improving out fro Corny Point and should move north on most grounds (Hopefully before the closed season). Try the outer grounds off Port Victoria and out in the channel and Jarrasik off Port Hughes. Port Vincent, Ardrossan and Price have crabs and garfish. Edithburgh has big tommies mainly at night. Salmon are still down south around Butlers and Browns with a few off Dolphin beach. Nice whiting are coming from Marion bay just 2 kms out from the jetty. SOUTH Waitpinga has some nice salmon trout and Parsons has bigger fish off the rocks. Salt creek still has salmon but mulloway around the 12-15kg range are being beached between the 42 mile and tea tree. Big barrel tuna continue to be caught down the south east. Make sure your boat is upto it and stay safe. FRESHWATER Callop are really turning it on around Manuum, Big Bend, Cobdogla and Cadell. Catfish have also been caught but needs to be returned to the river. Carp numbers are increasing and should be great fun for the kids at Lake Bonney.

  14. Now for what was biting and where Sheringa Whiting and tommies came from First Beach and salmon were in the surf. Elliston Big tommies came from the jetty at night, while during the day squid, trevally and a few whiting were caught. Almonta / Gunyah Beach Australian Salmon are firing from the beach, with best results returned to anglers using metal lures. These fish are averaging 3.5Kg at the moment and reaching up to 5kg, so make sure you have some quality gear, especially trebles on those lures. Farm Beach A few squid came from the broken weed patches out off Farm Beach. Whiting from just size to 37cm were caught on northern drops and also between Point Longnose and Sir Isaacs. Coffin Bay Silver Trevally from inside the bay, and the odd sized king George whiting was caught around the oyster leases. Nannygai and the odd Blue Morwong are being caught offshore by boaties, snapper news was quiet. Port Lincoln Garfish, Squid, King George Whiting, and big Tommies are being caught from Boston and Proper bays. Best baits are cockles and prawns. Australian Salmon from Sleaford to Wanna, before the fire situation, average 4 kilograms, there were also some Tommies around Sleaford up to 30cm. Squid and a few whiting were caught around Louth but most of the whiting were undersize. Tumby Bay The Group has been hard work to find whiting but the average size was over 40cm. Squid kept visiting anglers entertained off the jetty while small salmon were in Second Creek. Port Neill Good whiting, squid and a few snook were reported by boaties. Breakwater and jetty fishers found tommies, squid and snook. Arno Bay Good size whiting bit well with one measuring 53cm, as well as squid and the odd snapper out wide. The jetty had good size tommies. This week's Port Lincoln fishing report is supplied by Port Lincoln Fishing and Outdoors - Port Lincoln
  15. METRO The broadway is showing signs of some good ruggers showing up. The bag ground and Grange is doing well late afternoons on the whiting. While pletty of garfish size have varied but there should be some good catches around. Tommies have moved in but size is a problem. Nice size for snapper but not quite right for the smoker. You have to work through the small ones. Snook have come in to spawn so trawl in waters of 2.5 - 3 metres of water for best results. Squid are still in good numbers. Port river saw salmon trout and a few mullet in the channels. Mulloway have been thin. West Lakes have seen some big bream mainly in the southern area. YORKE PENINSULA Port Hughes has good whiting around Kemps and some nice gar are coming from the light. Snook numbers have increased north of Moonta point. Squid are still on Coopers. Port Vic has whiting, Snook and squid. Most fish are north of Beatrice. Point Turton has good size whiting around the drains and soutter. Snapper are now showing up out wide on the banks. Marion Bay has squid and a few tommies along with Stenhouse. Dolphin beach has some salmon and tommies. Edithburgh has been doing well on squid, gar and tommies of late. Crabs have shown up around Stansbury, Sheok and James Well, fish for them in 5-6 metres of water for better results. Port Broughton has been doing well on squid and crabs. Wallaroo jetty is doing well but the size of crabs have been small so you have to work through the small ones. FRESHWATER The river is firing at the moment with good size callop. from Manuum right through to Mildura have been doing very well. Shrimp or night crawlers have been the best bait.

  16. METRO Garfish and crabs are increasing week by week and now the crabs are getting closer to even rake for them on the northern beaches. Whiting catches have still been coming in with fish on the silt grounds, Norma, John Robb, Grange tyre reef, The bag ground and Kemps. Squid are still being caught around Brighton through to Semaphore. For the crabs try depths of 5-6 metres for best results. Salmon trout catches improved in the Port river with a lot of fish being caught on soft plastics. Bream are in West Lakes but little reports came in on mulloway. Snapper are moving in around the Brighton area where there was some nice ruggers caught. YORKE PENINSULA Whiting catches from Wallaroo right down to Point Turton are still biting well. Snook have moved into the gulfs in big numbers also. Nice tommies are coming from most jetties along with crabs off Wallaroo and Port Hughes jetties. Squid are plentiful in both gulfs including jetties. Garfish are showing up on most grounds and are good size. Snapper are coming from Ardrossan but fish are north, Edithburgh around the Marion Reef and channel areas and Marion Bay just west of Althorpes. Marion Bay also has big squid off the jetty. SOUTH Salt Creek did well with salmon and some nice mulloway around to 10kg range. Bigger fish came from the Kingston area. FRESHWATER Callop are pretty well everywhere with the best areas being Blanchetown, Big Bend, Manuum and Cobdogla. Shrimp numbers have been picking up as well.

  17. Elliston Tommies bit best at night from the jetty, with gar and big squid during daylight hours. Salmon at Mount Camel weighed up to 4kg. Locks Well salmon were of similar size. Sheringa Whiting, tommies and salmon trout off first Beach. Some bigger salmon further down off the surf beaches. Almonta / Gunyah Beach Still no reports of Salmon from this stretch of beach. From all reports, only a few salmon trout have been caught by bait fishos over the last few weeks. Farm Beach Some good reports of King George Whiting are coming from the area for boaties, especially north of Farm Beach. Some undersize some just over. For a better chance of finding some good fish, head north to Frenchmans. Coffin Bay King George Whiting throughout the bay. Water temp is still low, but if the promised warm weather does come, the weekend might be worth a try. The Ledge has been very quiet, with only a few Salmon trout being reported. Port Lincoln Louth whiting have been slow. There was a few big squid around Louth Island. Boaties fishing the bays have struggled to find many King George Whiting. Squid, Tommies, and Garfish were found throughout local bays and jetties. The surf beaches in the national park have seen many anglers getting amongst some big salmon. A few over 10 pounds have been caught on metal lures and pilchard baits. Offshore continues to be good for Nannygai, blue morwong and a few snapper. A few nice flathead have been caught on soft plastics. 70 – 100 mm squidgies are the most popular with jig heads to match the depth of water that you are fishing. Tumby Bay Group mixed King George Whiting from undersize to 40+cm Port Neill Small tommies and squid were caught off the jetty. The best whiting catches came from northern grounds. Arno Bay Squid and tommies came from the jetty. Out wide there was a few snapper. Good size winter whiting are still to be found down south. Cowell Blue crabs were found outside Franklin Harbour in the deeper water. A few rugger snapper were found towards Lucky Bay. Silver whiting were found inside Franklin Harbour. Port Lincoln Anglers Club Saturday the 12th of September is a AAA offshore comp held at Port Victoria on York Peninsula. This week's Port Lincoln fishing report is supplied by Port Lincoln Fishing and Outdoors - Port Lincoln
  18. METRO Big garfish have arrived and they are biting well. The fish are out from Semaphore and Bower Road and some came from near the Norma Wreck. Remember to keep your burley trail to a minimum as you don't want to over feed them. Whiting catches have also continued around West Beach, Brighton, Grange and out from Footy Park. Snook have been caught in deeper waters around east of the shipping channel and out from Semaphore. Blue crabs are making their way in with crabs caught around the silt grounds, North of Port Gawler and Semaphore. They are mainly in 6-7 metres of water. Port River and St kilda have nice salmon trout and there are some mulloway hanging around the North Arm. The fish aren't big but they are legal. There is a few big mullet in the creeks but you have to burley heavily. West Lakes has seen some stomper bream being caught near the bridges and south. The Onkaparinga has been doing well on the bream and also salmon trout. Tony Bainbridge has been doing very well there of late. Northern beaches are producing some nice yellowfin whiting along with the odd salmon trout (Thompsons, Webb, etc.). YORKE PENINSULA Port Hughes still has some nice whiting but it has been more productive late in the afternoons where fish are coming in between the 42-45cm mark. Squid are still in the area but not in massive numbers like a month or so ago. Signs of big garfish at the light are just starting to show up and should improve as the weather warms up. Some snapper have been caught out from the cape but they haven't been regular. Wallaroo has whiting out from Riley and some small kings have shown up cruising the rocky areas. The jetty is getting better with some squid and a few crabs being caught. Port Broughton has crabs, garfish and still good whiting. Some big salmon trout are in the channel around the straight stretch after the boat ramp. Port Victoria is doing well on whiting and squid. The state offshore championships will be held there this weekend so the boat ramp may be a bit busy. Point Turton is improving every week with some good whiting coming from soutter and a few snapper out wide. Marion Bay has some big squid but can be a bit shy. Trick is to have a teaser and lure them in. In the national park there has been some nice tommies caught in and around the rocks like Roystons and Dolphins beach. Salmon are spasmodic at Browns but is always worth a try late in the afternoons. Edithburgh has a sprinkle of gar in the bay along with squid and whiting in the area. the jetty has tommies and squid. Snapper should pick up with better tides. Stansbury out wide have some nice snapper and squid and tommies are coming from the jetty. Ardrossan has been quite productive of late with some nice snapper coming in. Hopefully there is not enough there for the long liners to return. SOUTH Rapid Bay is finally making it's mark again with some nice tommies coming from the jetty along with a few gar in between. Waitpinga is slow but there is a few fish near the reef. Goolwa has seen a few small mulloway and inside the coorong there are mullet and salmon trout. Salt Creek is getting better month by month. Mulloway have been regular visitors but the fish are not huge but still legal. Salmon are still moving through the gutters along with the odd gummy. FRESHWATER Lots of people have been doing very well near Blanchetown and Renmark for callop. Other areas are Manuum and Big Bend. Unfortunately you have to work through the carp which are quite large. There are a few rainbows in the upper reaches of the Broughton and also some have been spotted in the upper reaches of the Onkaparinga. Tight Lines from The Dorsal Fin Team TIP OF THE WEEK Now that we are getting into garfish season here is a few tips. A lot of people just use the normal pencil float. If you want to improve your catch rate try what is called a waggler float. These have the line just on the bottom of the float and they can be very sensitive. They are also easy to adjust your depth and are great for jetty fisherman wanting to cast long distances. They very rarely tangle also. See some in the shop and we can also show you how to use them. While burley is the key to getting garfish around it can also be your undoing as the fish get full on the burley. Large pellets can help as they steam out slowly but also have a number of rags that have been soaked in tuna oil over night. This creates a nice slick which attracts the fish to the surface. When you catch a garfish grab it from the beak and run your hand down the fish to remove scales and stuff in it's gut. Don't throw it away, instead get a bit in a bucket and when you have a bit use it as burley and watch the fish really go off.

  19. The Salmon Championship in Elliston has finished!The final Fortnightly prize was won by Shaun McCarrick from Whyalla. The mystery weight was 2.875kg and Shaun's Salmon weighed 2.930kg and was caught at Talia. The final fortnight saw a flurry of weigh ins(92), with most of the salmon being caught at Mt Camel and Sheringa with a few fish over 4kg. The overall competition winners will be announced on the 4th of September at 7pm at the Elliston Hotel! In the picture is local fishing identity Tom Tierney with a nice Murray Cod that he caught on a surface lure on a recent trip to Copeton Dam in northern NSW. The fish went 120cm and weighed 78lbs. A fish of a lifetime, even for Tom! Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa Salmon up to 4Kg have been caught in the area using lures and bait. Brined pilchards and large metal slugs accounted for most of the bigger fish. Almonta / Gunyah Beach A few salmon have been reported along here, but results are still not as good as other beaches for some reason. Farm Beach The run of good sized king George whiting continues close in to shore. The northern end up towards Frenchmans has been the pick of the areas, and cockles are the number 1 bait. Berley has been a must to keep the fish around and feeding. Crushed mussel seems to be the number one to try. A few squid have also been caught, so keep a squid jig handy whilst whiting fishing. Coffin Bay Inside Coffin Bay, there have been smaller whiting caught along with the usual bycatch. Out in deeper water, the fishing has been excellent with good numbers of Nannygai, Snapper and Blue Morwong caught. Port Lincoln Proper bay has started to see some king George whiting appear along with plenty of squid. Most of the Islands in the Passage have had good numbers of whiting caught over broken ground and the Nannygai, Snapper and Blue Morwong have continued to keep anglers busy over the deep water reefs. The local jetties and wharf have been quiet, but a good feed of squid is still possible with quality jigs if you fish early or late. Tumby Bay The group has been hit and miss for some anglers. King George whiting have been patchy, but if you do find them, they should be well above legal. Berley has been the key for the successful anglers. Port Neill The jetty/breakwater has seen a few nice Tommies and Squid being caught by anglers. Arno Bay The recent run of Snapper seems to have slowed down by all reports, but there are still some nice King George whiting in close. Cowell Outside Franklin Harbour has been consistent for squid and whiting while snapper are scarce. Port Lincoln Anglers Club PLAC outing to Lincoln National Park on Sunday 30/08/2015. We had 18 members attending this outing on a fine & sunny day with light N/E winds. A lot of members moved around to try & get different fish species & most members did find some fish to weigh in.

  20. Picture below from a trip with friends the other weekend at Port Vic. Bag of whiting and plenty of squid. METRO Some nice whiting are still being caught and this weekend tides will give you more time to get them. Grange tyre reef had whiting in small spurts but should be good this weekend with slower tides. Whiting are still being caught in around the 6 metre mark south of West Beach. The footy park ground has also produced some nice fish on the reef. Nice ruggers have moved in around Glenelg and Brighton. There are some garfish just in closer from the Semaphore reef but they are not huge as yet. This spot is great later in September. Outer Harbour was slow last week but the North Arm is producing some nice salmon trout and some mulloway. St Kilda had some nice bream and a sprinkle of salmon trout and the odd yellowfin whiting. Some nice yellowfin, salmon trout and flathead are coming from the northern beaches like Thompsons and there is some crabs also for a feed. Port river has bream just north of the Birkenhead Bridge and towards the train bridge using bloodworms. West Lakes still has some big bream near the bridges on the boulevard. A snapper around the 43cm mark was caught at the northern end off the beach last week and there a some small mulloway as well. Crabs are still being caught between the Fairwell beacon and the silt grounds. In the next couple of weeks we should see some nice garfish move onto the grounds of Semaphore. YORKE PENINSULA Ardrossan has started to improve with the snapper with a few nice fish caught last week. Hopefully not enough for the longliners to rape the place again. Some nice whiting are coming from Stansbury along with squid and a sprinkle of garfish. Coobowie has whiting in the shallows and off the point. Edithburgh has been doing well on the whiting and some snapper came from the channel. The jetty is producing some tommies, squid and some whiting off the end corner. Point Turton improved with some nice whiting coming from the Soutter grounds. The jetty still has some nice squid. Port Victoria has plenty of whiting north of the island along with big snook schooled up between the Songvaar and Deadmans. Port Hughes has been a hit with some and a miss for others. Some nice whiting came from the Tippara reef in the morning and coopers fired in the afternoon. There is still squid in most areas as well. Won't be long and the garfish will move onto the light. Wallaroo jetty produced some crabs and a few squid. The marina still has some nice bream and some legal mulloway. Port Broughton is doing very well on whiting, along with crabs and some nice garfish. Browns Beach has been a hit and miss but when they are there they are biting well. Dolphin Beach has been producing whiting and nice tommies, Pondi has some salmon and a few flathead in the bay for those soft plastics fisherman. Gleeson's had a nice school of salmon last week so the Dust Hole should be a good proposition. SOUTH My contact for Waitpinga hasn't contacted me this week but I am sure the salmon would be still hanging around. Maybe he is sick of the crowds.LOL. The Bluff jetty had some nice squid and a few tommies. Salt Creek is improving each week with salmon still there along with some nice mulloway and gummies. Weed can be a problem some days especially just after a blow. The beaches west of Kingston are producing plenty of salmon. FRESHWATER Good reports of callop are coming from Blanchetown and Castles Landing. Mannum also is getting some nice callop. Cod have started to show up between Renmark and Murtho in amongst the callop.

  23. METRO Whiting catches are still good south of West Beach. Brighton area and 2-3kms south of brighton in around 6-8 metres of water have been the most productive. Tommies have been scarce this year due to the low water temperatures but in the next month the water temp will increase and hopefully these little bread and butter fish will soon be on the bite. Snook catches improved with some nice snook coming between the shipping channel and silt grounds. Squid are still in good numbers around West Beach, Brighton, Glenelg and Seacliff. A sprinkle of gar are coming from the silt grounds and the Bastard pole along with some nice blue crabs. This should improve in the coming weeks. Snapper are starting to be caught out from Brighton again but at this stage they have been ruggers. Port river is starting to liven up with some nice salmon trout coming from the north arm and around the creek openings towards St Kilda. Bream catches have also improved with some nice specimens coming from the wrecks and the upper reaches near the Birkenhead bridge. School Mulloway have been caught near the Quarentine station and in the north arm near the bridge and also the hot water outlet where someone lost his rod after a big run. West lakes have some huge bream in the upper reaches of the lake with most being caught on fresh frozen bloodworms. Had no reports of mulloway this week. YORKE PENINSULA I was over at Port Victoria on the weekend and we found bag limits of whiting just north of Beatrice in 10-11 metres of water. The fish were big up to 48cms. The same area has plenty of squid. Drifting is the best way to get both. Wallaroo, Port Hughes and Balgowan have nice whiting with some snapper out deeper. Hardwick Bay is still firing on the big whiting just north of the town in shallow water. Point Turton has whiting and squid and tommies are on the jetty. Browns Beach was a little slow but the bigger tides and N/E winds is a perfect combination in getting the salmon into the lagoon and around the reef. Out from Pondi and Althorpe have some nice nannies around the shoals and there is still a few sampsons near Wedge. Butlers beach is still producing salmon and salmon trout, Troubridge Point has salmon late afternoons. Edithburgh has been doing well on the jetty with tommies, salmon trout and squid. Out in the boat the whiting have been doing well in the afternoons in the bay and out from Coobowie. Stansbury still has some snapper out wide and squid have moved closer in near the jetty. Ardrossan is slow with the snapper but there is still some nice crabs coming in just south of the town. Whiting have improved across the other side from Price and the creek has some nice salmon trout and a few flathead. SOUTH Waitpinga and Parsons beach has salmon with better results late afternoon and into the night. Salt creek has seen a good run of mulloway up to the 10kg range during periods of no weed. Some gummies are also moving into the area. Had a customer who went to Robe and did very well on the whiting. FRESHWATER Cobdogla has some nice callop on the other side near the snags. Castles Landing has callop and big carp. Mannum is still producing some nice callop along with some catfish (Which have to be realeased). Murray Bridge has seen an influx of Silver Perch. These fish are fun to catch but again must be released. Tight Lines from The Dorsal Fin Team TIP OF THE WEEK When drifting or even when anchored for whiting and you are using a standard patanosta rig clip a squid jag onto your swivel. Squid are often in the same area as whiting due to the type of bottom and the whiting seem to not mine the jag being there. We did this just north of Beatrice last weekend and got some nice squid between catching our bag limit of whiting on the same rig. SO IT WORKS. Give it a try and you will be surprised Visit the Dorsal Fin website www.dorsalfin.com.au Make sure you also checkout and like the Dorsal Fin Facebook Page www.facebook.com/DorsalFinCavan
  24. Pictured with a very nice Salmon is Tristan Binder who caught a few fish down in the Lincoln National Park on the weekend using lures. Even though there weren’t any big schools to be seen, there were still a few nice fish in the surf. Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa Some good fish up to 4kg’s have been caught by those casting pilchards into gutters. Almonta / Gunyah Beach Still only a few Salmon being caught along this stretch of the coast. Farm Beach King George Whiting are being caught from boaties fishing in the area, with reports fish are being caught in five plus metres of water. Burley is almost essential to keep schools of fish on the bite and around your boat. Boat launching may be difficult as there is a large amount of seaweed on the beach. Coffin Bay Greenly Island is having reports of Tuna being sighted ‘everywhere’, but no reports of any being caught as yet. Port Lincoln Yellowfin Whiting are having very mixed reports with some anglers doing better than others. Reports indicate that there are schools of fish along the foreshore and further along the North Shore, however not everyone targeting them was able to land a fish. Anglers using fresh bait such as clickers or worms (either tube, blood, or seaweed) were the ones who returned the best results. Some fish were reported being up to 40 cm. Boaties fishing the North Shore are returning with good catches of King George Whiting, and Squid. Some Whiting were larger than 40 cm. Boaties also reported King George Whiting and Squid around Taylors Island, and Thistle Island, which were caught at times of the incoming tide. Australian Salmon are being caught along the Sleaford to Wanna coastline, with more consistent fish closer to Wanna. Best results were returned to anglers using metal lures and using pilchards for burley to attract fish closer to the shoreline. Most Salmon caught were not in schools, however were in gutters and averaging around 2-3 kilograms. The Passage has had a few mixed reports. Some anglers did very well in catching Nannygai, and Blue Morwong on baits and jigs during morning sessions. Tumby Bay The Group is having anglers return with good catch rates of plump King George Whiting, and Squid. Port Neill No reports Arno Bay No reports Cowell No reports Port Lincoln Anglers Club 18 members attended the outing on Sunday 16th August to Farm Beach / Dutton West area Conditions were ideal....fine, sunny, light winds however finding legal sizes of fish was extremely difficult. Division Winners: Veterans:1/. Wayne Paterson with 1 species +7 fish for 85 points 2/. Syd Calverley with 3 fish for 15 points Men:1/. Tim Doyle with 1 species + 1 fish for 55 points 2/.Ian Chamberlain with 1 species for 50 points Ladies:1/. Annette Brasington with 1 species + 1 fish for 55 points 2/. Heather Hampel with 6 fish for 30 points Juniors:1/. Riley Peters with 1 species + 7 fish for 85 points Heaviest fish of the day was a 340 gm trout caught by Heather Hampel Next outing will be to the Lincoln National Park on Sunday 30th August. Meet & leave from the clubrooms on Kemp Ave at 8 am Weigh in & BBQ will be at Leon Patersons at Tulka.

  25. METRO With the bloodworms running probably tonight things may slow within the Port river system and the outer edges. On are that doesn't get affected is West Beach and beyond. Good catches of whiting are still being caught along with some nice squid. West Lakes is the surprise with some cracker bream being caught and a couple of mulloway got slammed near the rowing club.Snook, squid and whiting came from the grounds east of the farewell beacon in around 9-10 metres of water. Sound around the area where you will pick up some nice schools just above the bottom and use soft plastics for the snook. Drift the area and make sure you have a whiting line down. North of Adelaide around Thompsons and Webb beaches have some nice yellowfin whiting along with some big salmon trout. Hallet Cove grounds are just starting to see some whiting and should improve as the temperature climbs. Some nice bream is being caught in the Onkaparinga along with some salmon trout. Largs still has some squid near the north haven breakwater. While the bloodworm run is on try getting some crabs at the silt grounds as well as some gar which have started to move into the area. If your going to hit the Port River system then use bloodworms for bait. A huge clump of bloodworms on a 6/0 hook and a running sinker should be a killer for mulloway. YORKE PENINSULA Well the exodus of the longliners has started at Ardrossan and were spotted heading out from the Port Victoria boat ramp. After raping St Vincent gulf they now want to drain fish from Spencer gulf. THIS HAS TO STOP! This is an indication that the migration could start in Spencer gulf this year but unless we stop these longliners from taking them before they can get to their spawning destinations all will be lost. It has been many years since we have had a big run in Spencer gulf. The last big spawn was stopped at Port Lincoln where all the longliners hammered them before they could even enter the gulf. Lets hope the seals take their fish and the sharks take the seals. LOL. Whiting catches are still pumping at Wallaroo, Port Hughes, Port Victoria, Hardwick Bay, Point Turton (Has improved), Edithburgh and some nice specimens are coming from Stansbury. Stansbury also has some nice snapper and squid. Boats launching from Pondi and Marion Bay have been bringing back some nice Nannies and some samsons. Most are being caught near Wedge and out from Western River. SOUTH Some nice schoolies were caught at Salt Creek over the past couple of weekends which is a good sign for the summer season. Weed can be a problem but persistence is the key. Weed will slow at certain times of the tide and this should give you a good window to keep lines out. Waitpinga is still producing salmon and salmon trout along with Parsons. A friend fished Cape Jervis for tommies and managed only a couple of dozen but he spotted a couple of schools of salmon working along the breakwater and beach on the western side. Snapper have also been good South west of the cape. FRESHWATER Another cod was spotted by a customer near the lock at Blanchetown. He was fishing just above the lock and the fish swam up to the bank and then just disappeared. He said it was huge. Good to see there are still some big fish in the area. Anyway he was catching some nice callop in the same area using nightcrawlers. Mannum has some callop also and some small redfin are coming from the Murray Bridge marina late afternoons. Tight Lines from The Dorsal Fin Team TIP OF THE WEEK If your drifting for whiting and you are using a patanosta rig try clipping a squid jag at the swivel above your rig. There are squid in the same area so gives you both chances of catching. When drifting always have a slop line down with a squid head attached to a lump of steel or a brick. This can be a very productive way of fishing as you cover more ground and you can pick up productive spots.
