  1. Hey guys as the title suggests, who's been catching salmon this season? What sizes are you seeing and roughly what areas? Cheers
  2. Most would know about this topic and most would have seen the article. Have you voted 'YES' or 'NO' to the call to ban sea nets in the Gulf of St Vincent? You can find the poll on the article page and also view the results. Article from The Advertiser (not sure how it will paste) Link to original article - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/calls-to-ban-sea-nets-after-thousands-of-dead-fish-found-dumped-off-ardrossan-jetty/news-story/2050a17b1edbc66de3a7865ad065b81d Calls to ban sea nets after thousands of dead fish found dumped off Ardrossan jetty CRAIG COOK, The Advertiser October 11, 2017 7:01pm THOUSANDS of dead fish dumped by the BHP jetty at Ardrossan have caused outrage among recreational fishermen. The Advertiser has been told the catch of around 400kg of Australian salmon was released by a commercial fisherman based at Stansbury when his nets snagged on the jetty. Danny Simpson, executive director of Recfish SA, that took video of the dead fish lying in shallows, said his members “strongly condemn” the dumping. ”He appears to have dumped them there and just disappeared which we regard as a pretty irresponsible act.” he said. “From our perspective this is outrageous behaviour and why we want to see sea nets removed from Gulf St Vincent.” He questioned why the fisherman was netting so close to shore. “We want to know why he was apparently netting in front of the jetty of a major Yorke Peninsula township,” he added. Still grab of part of the huge fish catch seen at the bottom of the Ardossan Jetty. The Marine Fishers Association (MFA), representing the interests of South Australia’s 300 Marine Scalefish Fishery (MSF) statutory licence holders, said one of its members was responsible for the dumping. MFA executive officer, Nathan Bicknell, said in a Facebook statement that “gear failure” and the operator’s decision to “operate outside industry norms” were to blame. Clarifying the statement, Mr Bicknell told The Advertiser: “The operator’s decision was to keep his whole catch and that’s how he got himself into mischief. “There’s nothing illegal in what he did but there is strong peer pressure to do the right thing.” Chief executive of Yorke Peninsula Council, Andrew Cameron, who lives in Ardrossan said he was seeking more information from staff in the town but was “extremely disappointed” with such “irresponsible behaviour”. RecSA member David Bryant posted on Facebook: “Absolutely disgusting, remove his netting license, problem solved, total disregard for our marine life and local fishers. This behavior (sic) is way too common from netters. I call to ban all netting in any areas close and around our gulfs. Absolutely horrified” Tragic waste ... around 400kg of prized Australian salmon, similar to the one above, was released by a commercial fisherman when his nets snagged on the jetty. A statement from the Department of Primary Industries and Regions said: “PIRSA received reports regarding a significant number of dead Western Australian salmon near the southern Ardrossan jetty on Monday and dispatched fisheries officers to the area to make inquiries to determine the cause and circumstances. “The commercial fisher responsible subsequently identified himself and has assisted fisheries officers with their inquiries. “Based on the available information, it appears that a combination of gear failure and poor fishing practices resulted in the unintended release of part of a school of salmon caught by the fisher about 300 metres from the BHP jetty. “We understand the fisher initially unsuccessfully attempted to retrieve all of the released fish and has since returned to the area to collect what fish he can. “Although a rare occurrence, PIRSA is none the less disappointed with this incident and will continue to work closely with industry to ensure all fishers adopt best practice commercial fishing operations in SA.”

  5. My recent Trips and reports-

    Howdy all, over a quite time at University I started writing a few reports about some of the fishing trips I have recently done so here is a link to my reports, as it is easier than copying and pasting them all in. http://lachycross.wixsite.com/crossyscatches cheers members. http://lachycross.wixsite.com/ Here are a few pictures from some of my reports
  6. With all the ordinary weather we've been experienced, its been 6 weeks since i had wet a line. Finally the weather and tides cooperated and I managed a light tackle salmon session with a couple of mates, on today's low tide. Things were really quiet to start with, too quiet. Were they all gorged on bloodworms? Then uncannily........ literally as if one had pressed a button they were 'on' . There were surface bust-ups all around us and the three of us didn't quite know where to cast. Any direction, any lure was smashed.The fish were not of any spectacular size, curiously all around the 26-32cm range but they were fun, feisty and super aggressive! No idea what they were feeding on? Beautiful clear, calm day in the water and some good clean fun. Would have easily landed 30+ of this size. Tried bait for nothing noteworthy and no squid about. Just took home a feed. News to me that Hornes have released a new 'wetsuit' range ........ Every time he slips on the waders he goes for a swim!!!!
  7. GOOLWA BEACH

    So, I get home from work with some holidays booked and keen as to get away for some time to unwind with the only problem being where to go, tossed around hooking up the boat for a river trip but when in I walked in to the shed and seen the surf rods that haven't had a run in close on 8 months my mind was made up a over nighter to Goolwa . Thursday morning with last few items throwen in I hit the road at 6.30am. Pulling in to the beach car park around 8.00 am, I set about dropping my tyre pressures via the strawn's. It really drives me nuts seeing 4wd still running road pressures chewing up the beach for no reason. Anyway after a easy drive to the mouth, I spent some time watching the dredge working and at the unbelievable numbers of seals around . I picked out a nice little hole set up camp and had the rods in by 10 With the 1st rod loaded with a st fillet 2nd rod with a pilly and a popper The first bite came around 1pm and soon had a beautiful salmon on the beach ,bled and in the esky . A long wait till the next bite around 5.30 and was surprised to have caught my 1st salmon on a popper After missing a huge hit on a whole squid head, the cold and poor footy game I decided to pack it in around 9.30pm and climbed in the swag. Friday morning rolled around still bloodly cold but great conditions I had the rods back in by 6.30am. I fished hard again all day changing bait every 20mins till the next bite around 1pm again, this fish didn't fight very well the reason eviedent with a trace and hook coming out through the gills. I don't know how long fishing line needs to be in the water for the growth on the line to get to that stage but it couldn't have been pleasent Come 3pm and I packed up for the drive home , with 20 hrs of fishing for 3 fish not the best, it was great to get away and enjoy some great weather and camping. A quick pic of tea, fresh salmon patties yum yum
  8. I hadn’t had a surf fishing trip for 5years, not since our last lads KI trip and before the young fella came along. The whole concept was beginning to feel like a nostalgic part of the past. The idea for a KI salmon trip this season was optimistically discussed but fruitlessly realised. Not quite, but almost out of sheer desperation, brought a lower Yorkes fallback plan. We had visited Yorkes numerous times but not for a few years, basing ourselves in the quaint Corney Point. This gives good access to the beaches of Berry Bay, Gleeson’s Landing, The Dust Hole, numerous rock fishing options and sheltered wading around Corny Point. All providing shelter from prevailing S-SW winds The objective of this trip was to break in my mate’s new Seajigger, which had been unused and collecting dust since its purchase months ago. More specifically; to have a solid crack at some surf salmon, possibly some rock fishing, wading and maybe even a lazy mullet session. Tinker had provided some options past Edithburgh, if the weather turned and blew from the NW. Two weekends were chosen, to be selected at the last minute pending weather, in June, rather than later, hopefully to pick up any straggling mullet. The first fell through and then the second looked doomed after my entire family succumbed to some nasty flu like virus. It was touch and go for a while but with some begging, we finally had a trip, only with a later departure of Friday evening rather than Thursday, returning Sunday night. Friday Even with express packing we didn’t leave until 1830 for a relatively uneventful drive other than a quick detour at Pt Wakefield when my mates ‘dinner’ of chips & iced coffee needed to break free . Onwards in the dark, we turned into Minlaton to be pulled over by the local constabulary. I'd noticed they eyeballed my mates old VN as we passed the servo, assuming likely bogan occupants up to no good . Any way mate blew zero, rego & licence check all good and he wished us good fishing! Saturday Plan was to pick a gutter in Berry Bay for a salmon surf session on the rising tide. After a lazy breakfast we were off. North Berry had 6 blokes fishing one gutter but the entire beach south was clear with a sweet looking gutter smack in the middle. Luckily there is access near the middle as well as the southern end, so not too much walking. Closer inspection the gutter looked promisingly. It was deep in close but also had a fair swell cranking a current up the beach plus some solid sets of waves rolling in. For my standard salmon surf fishing session I usually bring two outfits; one for bait (Penn Prevail 1202MH, Penn Slammer 560, 30lb braid) and the other for flicking lures (9ft Samaki Allure, Slammer 260, 15lb braid). This time I opted for 3 outfits, the two mentioned and one heavier (Beach Basher, 850ssm & 30lb mono) for anything bigger (shark, ray, mully) I dropped my gear on a flat rock and grabbed the lure stick. I ran a 20lb mono leader via a FG knot to a snap swivel, perfect for 20-40g metals and the occasional large soft plastic. Starting with a 20g Raider into the promising water, then switched to a 28g Lock casting jig and was immediately impressed with the added distance. Nevertheless, without a touch and my usual lacking patience, I rigged up for bait. I run a pretty standard paternoster rig, consisting of: Snap swivel on main line 30lb or 40lb double paternoster twisted droppers (I buy these as they are tricky time consuming to tie) Loop on top and snap swivel to the sinker. Loop if the sinkers are molded with swivels, but I find snap swivel easier regardless. 2 snelled 4/0s on one dropper, baited with a whole salted pillie & tail tied on with a bit of bait thread. Surf popper on the other Star sinker to conditions. 3-6oz , breakaways if conditions are rough. I started with a 4oz star. Swivels at both ends minimise line twist, as the rig gets knocked around in the current plus facilitate easier rig & sinker changes. Twisted droppers hold the popper and bait more perpendicular than the simpler dropper loop rig, so are less likely tangled. Surf beaches regularly hold sand crabs which can quickly demolish pilchard baits. The popper will stay there and bob around enticingly when the bait is all gone .....Funnily enough, I had yet to catch anything on popper! Back to the fishing...... The 4oz was holding well but with unpredictable wave action I decided to hold my rod with rather than place it in the rod holder. I could feel the telltale picking of crabs after a matter of minutes, checking bait to see it half demolished. Re-baited and back out. Tap, tap, lift and I’m on. Unsure what it was, certainly didn’t feel like a salmon? A bit of work out of the side rip revealed a nice mid-30cm Blue Spot and on the surf popper too! A double first for me: 1st flathead in the surf and 1st fish on a surf popper ! Just about to cast out again and my mate’s seajigger is finally getting a bend as he’s working a decent fish, some 80m up the beach. I left my rod in the holder to give him a hand, landing a solid 60+cm salmon . No pics as my camera & phone were in my bag and the fish was released. Those two fish were about it . The swell was getting uncomfortable where we were, pushing us up into the rocks at the base of the cliffs. Being a little concerned of getting trapped in the rising tide we packed and moved down the coast to the beach south of Pt Annie. We targeted a nice hole, butting up the rocky point, with a few added reefy bits to keep us honest . Similar approach, baits out to the taps of smaller fish then wack, the distinctive tussle of my first salmon. It proves difficult to land with the steep beach and side rip but is eventually up in a wave surge. Easily my biggest salmon for a number of years in the 50-55cm range, released. Next couple of casts yielded snags; the loss of a sinker then a whole rig . Then I noticed a loop in my spool so pulled the line out only to get a massive mess as it blew down the beach, tangling with seaweed and inventing its own wind knots . I crack the s**ts, cut out 20m of line and switch to flicking lures! Metals weren’t getting any hits so I tried a SP (5in Jerk, ShadZTT Headlock 1/2oz, 5/0XH). It cast surprisingly well but proved tricky working it between the big sets of waves. Finally one lift it gets slammed. I lose a bit of line then have similar trouble landing it as before. Another reasonable fish a bit bigger , and my 1st surf salmon on SP ! Around the same time my mate is bowled over in the backwash then receives the next wave right over the top and down the waders . He’s drenched and luckily we are sheltered from the breeze and the water’s not super cold anyway. Again, not much after those 2 fish , so we headed back up the coast for a bit of rock fishing. With nothing noteworthy (smallish wrasee, sweep, tommies etc) we called it a day. Mate had a hot shower and into dry clothes, I clean the flattie. We share the 1 beer .....ive been experimenting bottling homebrew in sodawater bottles which works well...... so 1 beer is really 4x330ml (great one to tell the missus "I'll just have one beer" ) ! We um & ah about wading the early morning low tide and decide it will be too dark and cold. Then seal its fate by downing a bottle of red and decide to have a lazy mullet session instead. Sunday After half packing the shack, we head to our pre-chosen mullet spot in close to Corney Pt. I tried to drop an onion bag of burley with ½ a house brick but even here the waves from the swell prove too much and smashed it into the rocks. Big baits out for any passing rays yield nothing other than snags on the only bit of rock around! Finally the mullet show in the last couple of hours rising tide and become increasingly aggressive with a few double headers. Most are only average but a few around 30cm. They loved slivers of deer heart I had been conscientiously saving for a mullet session. Just as the novelty was wearing my mate hooks something far larger to reveal a lovely flattie, his PB at 55cm. We decided to leave on a high, pack and hit the road for home. Even though there was nothing spectacular always great to get away and focus on just fishing. A beautiful part of the world and just enought of a tease to come back for the salmon schools next trip.

  10. salmon rods

    hi guys i was recomended to use light gear when lure flicking for salmon at southport just wondering what weight/length it should be
  11. Seemed like a great idea at the the time. I jumped at the suggestion of heading out with a mate as the wind was looking to be minimal and after all, I am still yet to catch a salmon this season. Seriously, if we head to Waits they will all be surfing the waves at Morgans . . . a Sellicks trip will guarantee the fish are at Southport . . . if we then tried to chase them at Southport, they would head up to Moana and a couple of Goolwa Beach runs have proven unsuccessful also. Starting to think there is actually a mole in the schools, who's sole purpose is to keep a lookout for the Guru and warn the others lol. Anyhoos, arrived on location at the standard ungodly hour and was absolutely blown away by the image in front of me. It is a very rare occasion that I would consider the Onk to be an 'AMAZING' photographic specimen but . . . . Wow. With the full moon above the Surf Club, the footbridge lit up perfectly and the fact that there was absolutely no surface movement on the water whatsoever. I just really wish I had my SLR to capture it properly, as the Samsung camera does not do the scene justice. aaaaaaaand back to Salmon again. So the weather conditions were perfect (a little too perfect?) Barely a light breath of wind, cold but not "holy crap, my testicles are completely frozen" cold and the swell was tame enough to allow us to get out onto the sand bar at high tide, where we then proceeded to take a couple of snaps and make a few jokes comparing ourselves to a certain Mesiah. My mate was already out when I arrived, trying on baits with no success exept for a couple of pickers cleaning him out so we both progressed to flicking lures off the sand bar. After what seemed like an eternity (in reality, probably only 20 minutes or so) my mate finally hooks up on a little troutie. You beauty I thought, finally some fish and as he was unhooking that specimen, I also had a little one hooked up. Unfortunately I lost mine at the water line as he managed to shake the hook right at the very second I went to grab him (still on the sandbar at this stage) Another 20 or so minutes later and my mate pulls another one out and that was literally it for the day. All up, my mate found 2 juveniles around the 27cm mark and my Salmon Drought contiues Absolutely awesome morning for it though . . . maybe next time
  12. The August Salmon Comp is now on! Post up a salmon report but a little bit different... with all the Strike & Hook gear out there we'd like to see pics of you all wearing your gear with your salmon catch. It can be a cap, beanie, t-shirt or hoodie. This month's prize is a cool salmon combo. A Daiwa Megaforce 962MFS (9'6" and 3-5kg) matched with a Daiwa Revros MX 3000 and as always a SH cap and beanie! The Daiwa combo is a great way to get started with salmon lure flicking or an excellent second setup to flick around while another rod is soaking a bait or for when your non fisho or unorganised mate comes along. As there has already been a week gone (sorry guys work is killing me) we'll run the comp into next month a little bit to make up for the missed time. Don't forget the Strike & Hook Salmon Day this weekend, this could be your chance to get a photo and put up a report. As a little incentive, I'll be taking a bunch of SH caps down to Waitpinga and giving away a cap to everyone who catches a salmon and gets a photo taken Only one cap per person and until we run out. We picked up the Daiwa combo for a great price at Fishing Wholesalers. They always look after us so please head over to their website www.fishingwholesalers.com.au and check out their cool gear and if you're on Facebook head over there and like their facebook page www.facebook.com/fishingwholesalersaustralia. I should add due to the nature of this prize it is going to be pickup only from Fishing Wholesalers at Lonsdale. Good luck everyone And yeah, I know I'm no fishing show host but there was this dude wondering around while filming that kinda distracted me. Especially when he walked right past the camera while I was filming
  13. I'm thinking about getting a decent lure setup for salmon, right now I have a dodgy rod and ok reel but want to flick out past everyone else and score all the big fish What does everyone else have or wish they had to flick lures right out the back? I need inspiration.

  20. Went out yesterday with a mate and his Mrs to try and hit up a salmon school locally. Well only a few slightly larger specimens but not what we were after. My mate and I both tried surf poppers, these have been suggested to me a few times now and yesterday had reports of people dragging in untouched bait with the popper slaying the salmon. Not the case with us. The only thing landed on the poppers were an few st's when my mate put a pillie tail on it kinda defeats the purpose. I managed a sand crab, not sure if I foul hooked it on the retrieve but was hoping the popper would actually deter the crabs and they'd go for the bait. So what are we doing wrong? How do you guys rig em up and what success have you had? I use a simple rig, star sinker, gang hook on dropper loop, popper on dropper loop.

  22. Hi everyone,I'm thinking of getting a few new packs of soft plastics for a variety of species and am currently looking at colours styles etc and thought I might start up a topic with everyone's recommendations for what plastic they've had success on for specific species, Salt and Fresh, Large and Small.E.g. Z-Man Curl TailZ GrubZ 2.5" Motor Oil for Bream in the Port River Berkley Gulp Minnow 3" Lime Tiger for Mulloway in the Coorong Not looking for brand wars just colours, styles etc.If you add a scent to your plastics what have you found works for you? Cheers
