There has been the odd day lately in the last week where you can get out and have a good go at some fishing and it’s been quite good. Here’s what has been caught.
Many of the beaches in the area have been battered by the poor weather recently and many good gutters on the surf beaches have been filled in by sand, but there have still been Salmon caught at all the beaches in the area. An added bonus has been Gummy Sharks at Talia Beach and you might be lucky enough to hook onto a Flathead in the area too.
Salmon Trout have been the main fish in the area around town with the odd Whiting. Farm Beach still has good numbers of Whiting and most areas are fishing well for them. There are Squid and the odd Flathead on some of the grounds closer inshore. There hasn’t been a lot of offshore action but some have fished not too far from Point Sir Isaac’s and caught Nannygai and Snapper.
You just need to pick your days and hopefully we will get better weather from here to venture out. Salmon fishing has taken place at Greenly Beach, Gunyah and Almonta Beach. There’s Salmon at all these spots up to 4kg.
Squid again have featured prominently around Port Lincoln and some good numbers have been caught. The jetties and boaties all have had some good catches. All jetties around town have had Squid and also some of the rock areas around town as well. The Yo-Zuri HS jigs and also orange colours have been working the best this week. Yellowfin Whiting around the Limani have been a frustrating target fish lately as they are only taking live clickers and there aren’t massive numbers being caught but still worthwhile if you’re after a feed.
Whiting have been caught along the North Shore, not in big numbers but enough for a feed. As for rest of the bays for Whiting there haven’t been any reports. Whiting fishing from Carcase Rocks to McLarens has been good, some good catches have been taken and they are good sized fish. Squid have been in good numbers in this area too and much bigger in size than what is around Port Lincoln. The south coast is still good for Salmon and they can be found right along the coast from Wanna to Wreck Beach. You just need good conditions and a few lures or pilchards. The fish are mixed sized between 1kg – 4kg.
Squid have been a popular again off of the Tumby Jetty with some nice ones caught. When you can get out to the Group there has been some good Whiting fishing and also plenty of Squid. Revesby Island has been mentioned as a good spot recently.
Port Neill/Arno Bay
Squid from the jetties have been caught again this week and some Whiting from both areas for boat fishers. Arno has had some good sized fish. Snook will also keep plenty of fishers happy if you after them.
Yellowfin Whiting have been very good numbers inside the harbour and they are quite thick at the moment. King George have been outside and fishing ok for them and there’s the odd Snapper as well. There would have been another Bloodworm run this week so the fishing in the area and down the coast might be slow.

Aaron Moodie: With plenty of Squid around the jetties are a sure way to catch some.
Finally it looks like there is going to be a break in the weather after Saturday. Hopefully we have seen the back end of the wind and the calmer weather is going to hang around so we can all get out on the water.
