  3. Pictured is Jimmy McKelvey with a 78cm Blue Swimmer Crab caught locally and Steve Forstner with my first ever Bluefin Tuna. It was only a small one, but it leaves me plenty of room to improve. While the crabs are around in good numbers, please remember to check them for legal size and only keep what you need. Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa Quite a few good sized salmon have been coming from the beaches. A few sizable schools have been sighted just within casting range. Tommies and Squid tend to be the main catch from the Elliston jetty. Sheringa’s beaches have Salmon averaging around 3 kilograms, in amongst the odd Flathead, Tommies, King George Whiting, and Mullet. Almonta / Gunyah Beach A few salmon are around but larger fish are not in big numbers. Coffin Bay Offshore – tuna, tuna and more tuna….All types of lures are working, but the larger deep diving lures such as the Rapala XRAP and Halco Laser Pro Crazy Deep seem to be the best for the larger fish. Quite a few Kingfish are being caught on soft plastics, deep diving minnows and jigs while trolling for tuna. Legal sized King George Whiting have been scarce in Coffin Bay and Farm Beach. Try Gallipolli beach for some better sized fish. A few Snapper have been caught in deep water on baits along with some nice sized Nannygai. Port Lincoln The main wharf has had plenty of Tommies and Salmon Trout, biting on baits and lures especially if burley was being used. Just remember to be aware of the difference between Australian Herring (Tommy Rough) and Australian Salmon, as many salmon are having to be measured. The odd smaller Yellowtail Kingfish are also being spotted from the wharf, with some anglers having success hooking them using fresh baits. Slimy Mackerel and Chow are also being reported in the area. Tuna sizes seem to vary considerably with some around Low Rocks measuring between 2 and 28kg. Tuna were also found behind Hopkins, Thistle, Williams and Neptune Islands and the Cabbage Patch. Small skirted lures are working well for the smaller tuna and colour doesn’t seem to matter on most days. Nannygai and Snapper are also being caught by jigging and bottom bouncing baits. Tumby Bay A feed of whiting could be had by boaties working the inshore drops. Whiting at the Group were of a better size. Anglers chasing snapper at the Group report a few ruggers and Bronze Whaler sharks up to 6 foot long. A few Yellowfin whiting have been caught off the beaches. Port Neill Small squid, tommies and snook from the jetty. Yellowfin from beaches north and south. Arno Bay Snapper have been quiet, but that is most likely due to the weather conditions. Blue Swimmers are still around and King George Whiting are in good numbers in close. Cowell Blue Swimmers and King George Whiting seem to be the best targets here.

  4. This weeks pictures are of Leona Urban who caught her first ever Bluefin Tuna recently and with a Thistle Island King George Whiting measuring 57cm is Mitch Peak. 2 very nice catches indeed. We have had a few reports of good sized Snapper coming in since the ban was lifted on Monday. Please remember to check for other closures before you head out, as there are still some areas closed for Snapper until Jan 30th. Now for what was biting and where Elliston / Sheringa No reports received, but the Salmon and Whiting should still be a good option from the beaches. Around rocky points could be worth a look for other species as well. Almonta / Gunyah Beach Gunya beach has had a few mixed reports over the past week. Some anglers reported seeing many schools from the point of entry onto the beach. Other anglers had reported not seeing any schools whatsoever but finding good solid fish averaging 2-4 kilograms biting on baits and Spanyid Raider lures in the Blue colours. Farm Beach Boaties are reporting good catches of King George Whiting on cockles. Coffin Bay Southern Bluefin are still averaging less than 10 kilograms, however good numbers are being reported. Most reports are coming from out wide at the Hummocks, Perforated, greenly and Rocky Islands with small Kings and Samsons around Rocky as well. Port Lincoln Local bays are seeing good numbers of Blue Swimmer Crabs, with best results being returned during night sessions. Try Salmon, Tommies and Freeze Dried Squid are proving effective baits for the Crabs. Southern Bluefin Tuna are caught being out wide. Pick your days carefully with this windy weather though. Local jettys are showing up a few nice sized Garfish in shallow waters and some excellent size Squid, Silver Trevally are proving great tasty sport for many anglers fishing local bays whether targeting them or not. Anglers are finding that if they are using burley for a certain species, they will be accompanied by Trevally. These fish are excellent fun on light gear. Tumby Bay A few Squid and plenty of Tommies are being caught from inside the bay and on the jetty. The marina still has Silver Trevally and the Tommies are in there as well. Port Neill No reports, but there should be plenty of Tommies and Salmon Trout around. Arno Bay Reports of Snapper being caught are starting to come through the shop. Cowell Blue swimmer crabs are being reported in good numbers from around the township This week's Port Lincoln fishing report is supplied by Port Lincoln Fishing and Outdoors - Port Lincoln
  5. Lots of anglers are gearing up for the Snapper ban which ends at 12noon on the 15th. Many of us are looking forward to heading out and landing a few big fish. I am hoping to get my first SA Snapper for Christmas. In the pictures, we have Ash Smith (not on a boat for a change) with a very nice Mulloway and Kate Peglidis with a nice Tuna. Now for what was biting and where. Elliston / Sheringa Try the Elliston jetty for Tommies, and some good sized squid. Some decent Sweep are also being caught from rocks around the area. Closer down to Sheringa. Tommies, Whiting, and Mullet are going well from first beach, with a few Flathead also being landed. Almonta / Gunyah Beach Smaller salmon have come from Almonta. The odd bigger salmon and tommies up to 35cm were caught at Gunyah. Farm Beach Boaties launching from farm beach are having success on King George Whiting with slightly bigger fish on northern grounds. As well as Whiting there are Salmon Trout, Gar, Trevally and Tommies. Coffin Bay Salmon trout and Silver Trevally can be caught in good numbers throughout the bay from areas such as the jetty, Ledge and boat ramp. Some Yellowtail Kingfish of good size are also still being spotted throughout the bay. Greenly island, Rocky island and Krause Rock are producing Bluefin Tuna averaging 10 kg but some to 20kg came from around Rocky along with Kingies. Port Lincoln Try the main wharf for the odd King George Whiting, and good numbers of Squid early in the morning or on the high tide. Fisheries Beach has been productive with some Silver Trevally, and Salmon Trout. Local jetties have been good for Squid, Tommies, and Garfish in amongst the trumpeter’s during the high afternoon tide. Murrays point has plenty of Tommies. Salmon schools are still continuing to provide anglers some great fun throughout Boston bay and surrounding bays, feeding on Anchovies. The Salmon are not only restricted to boaties, with plenty of land based anglers being successful casting lures throughout the working schools. Birds working the area are a giveaway that the salmon are in the area. Blue Swimmer Crabs are also picking up in numbers, size and weight. Tumby Bay Whiting and squid are good out at the Group. Port Neill Tommies, and Garfish are being caught consistently on the jetty and along the breakwater. Snook and Squid are also being caught, however catch rates tend to be higher with the high tide or during dusk or dawn sessions. A few Yellowfin Whiting are showing up from the beaches closer to town, and for anglers chasing Salmon the southern beaches have fish around the 2 kilogram mark. Cowell Salmon Trout, and Tommies are being caught from the jetty at all times of the day, biting on a variety of baits and lures. King George Whiting can also be caught from the jetty. Reports of Blue Swimmer Crabs indicate that they are starting to fill out, however are not in massive numbers.
