METRO

Squid reports have been consistent from most spots along the Metro coast, boat and jetty anglers alike have been managing good catches fairly easily.

You only have to take a walk along Brighton Jetty to see how popular the humble Squid can be, with land based spots like Brighton, Marino Rocks, Port Noarlunga Jetty and Outer Harbor Breakwater all producing good numbers of Squid.

Boaties have found bag limits of Squid at Brighton, Marino, Hallett Cove, West Beach, Semaphore and Outer Harbor. Good quality Squid Jags and light Flurocarbon leaders will enhance your chances.

King George Whiting are still being caught at Brighton and Hallett Cove, with depths of 4-5 metres ideal. Smaller fish can be found at Semaphore and Outer Harbor, with most fish needing to be measured.

Snapper have been slow to fire up across the state, but some good catches have come from inshore grounds from West Beach to Seaford. Better sized fish have come from those heading offshore towards Ardrossan and Tapley Shoal on the better tides.

Snook have been caught all along the Metro coast, with shallow areas from Somerton to Marino all holding schools of quite large fish.

Yellowfin Whiting are being found on the flats at Thompsons Beach and Pt Parham, with fish to 40cm taking worms and surface poppers.

Blue Swimmer Crabs are being caught from north of West Beach and through to Pt Gawler, with Wonga Shoal having better sizes.

Rakers are doing well at Thompsons Beach and Pt Parham, but sizes have been small and most need to be measured.

Mulloway have been caught in the Port River over the past few weeks, with some pretty large ones landed at night time.

Best areas to focus efforts would be the North Arm and Quarantine Station area, using freshly caught live baits.

YORKE PENINSULA

King George Whiting are still around in pretty good numbers at Port Hughes, with catches of fish to 45cm coming from inshore grounds close to Cape Elizabeth.

Other King George Whiting catches have come from Pt Victoria, Stansbury and Marion Bay.

Garfish are biting well at Tiparra Lighthouse, Moonta Bay, Edithburg and Pt Broughton. Other spots have been producing fish but they have been quite shy. Try using very small hooks such as ultra fine fly fishing hooks with very small baits when they are not actively feeding.

Snapper have been coming from Tapley Shoals, with some good sized fish to 10kg coming from the northern end. Corny Point and Wallaroo have also produced good catches, with boats fishing beyond the Steamer channel at Port Hughes returning with good hauls.

Squid have been coming from most Jetties up and down the Yorke Peninsula, with Port Hughes, Wool Bay and Marion Bay all fishing well.

Those fishing from boats have been doing very well on the squid at Stansbury, with plenty of good sized Squid coming from the broken bottom south of The Spit.

Port Hughes, Wallaroo, Ardrossan and Port Victoria have all been producing plenty of Squid for those fishing from boats and kayaks.

EYRE PENINSULA

Coffin Bay has had a few Kingfish caught over the past couple weeks, with live Garfish being the ideal bait.

Pt Augusta has been fishing well for Yellowtail Kingfish, with some recent captures coming from dowrigged live Squid.

Large Blue Swimmer Crabs are also coming from Pt Augusta, with Whyalla also having some good sized crabs caught from the Jetty and boats.

King George Whiting have come from inside Coffin Bay, with land based catches coming from the Ledges and near the boat ramp.

Better sized King George Whiting have come from the Sir Joseph Banks Group and Arno Bay.

Salmon have been biting well at Gunyah Beach and Sheringa, with some better sized fish coming from the beaches west of Ceduna.

Mulloway have been caught on the Far West Coast beaches, with fish up to 50lb coming from The Dog Fence and Yalata beaches.

Plenty of Salmon and small Sharks are also coming from the same areas, particularly at night time.

FLEURIEU PENINSULA

Squid have been caught in good numbers from boats fishing from Wirrina Cove, with Second Valley, Rapid Bay and The Bluff all producing good sized Squid.

Mullet have been caught on the inside of the Murray Mouth at Goolwa, with Sugars Beach the easiest to access without a four wheel drive.

Goolwa Beach has had a few Sharks and Salmon at night, with small Salmon also coming from the Murray Mouth.

Snapper catches have come from offshore of Wirrina Cove and also some good hauls of fish around 50-60cm coming from Backstairs Passage for Cape Jervis launchers.

There have been a few reports of Mulloway coming from Goolwa Beach and Bashams Beach at night time, with smaller school sized fish caught in the Goolwa Channel and towards Tauwitcherie Barrage.

SOUTH EAST

Salt Creek has started to fish well for Mulloway to around the metre mark, with a couple slightly bigger fish coming from the surf over the past few weeks.

There are still plenty of big Salmon also coming from Salt Creek, along with a few small Bronze Whaler Sharks.

Port MacDonnell has been fishing well for good sized School and Gummy Sharks, with catches over 30kg common over the past week.

Snapper have also come from the same areas, with some nice sized Flathead also taken.

Large Garfish continue to fire at Livingstons Bay and Cape Douglas, with plenty of Squid also coming from the same areas.

RIVERLAND - FRESHWATER

Carp are now well and truly active in all parts of the River Murray, with backwaters teaming with big fish ready to start spawning.

Light lines, with small light weight float rigs are extremely effective at catching big Carp from shallow waters close to the banks and make for a lot of fun.

Callop have been coming from Cobdogla, Ramko, Cadell and Overland Corner. With Swan Reach and Purnong also fishing well in the Lower Murray.

Bassman Spinnerbaits and Yo-Zuri 3d Shads have all worked well recently for those casting lures around structure.

Shrimps are readily available along all of the river, and make best bait to target the Native species.
