FISHING REPORT

This week’s fishing report, brought to you by the team at Tackle World Adelaide Metro.
 


Thursday -- 7th of December, 2017
 

 

METRO

The upcoming weekend’s weather looks to be fairly good with some light winds, with Saturday looking like the pick of the days at this stage.

Please note that the Snapper ban remains in place until 15th December at 12 noon.

We have had many reports of good sized schools of Snapper across the Metro area, with many accidental captures on Whiting lines at a few inshore areas. We hope to see these fish stick around for the opening of the season at midday on the 15th.

Snook have been widespread along most inshore areas, with good catches coming from Brighton jetty at night time and from shallow weed bed areas from Hallett Cove to Somerton.

Some other good catches of Snook have been coming from Semaphore and Outer Harbor, with deep diving lures such as the Yo Zuri Crystal Minnow and Daiwa Double Clutch 75sp in Ghost Wakasagi colour working very well.

Blue Swimmer Crabs are being found in good numbers along most of the coast from Pt Gawler down as far as Glenelg, with some good catches coming from close to shore at West Beach.

Jetty anglers have caught decent numbers of Blue Swimmer Crabs from Henley Jetty and Grange Jetty, with some good catches coming after dark. Be aware that there are quite a few females with eggs at the moment and they must be returned to the water.

Rakers have found good numbers of Blue Swimmer Crabs from Pt Gawler and Thompsons Beach.

Garfish can be found fairly easily with a little berley from most inshore grounds, with some large Garfish coming from Marino and Brighton. Other good catches have been coming from Semaphore Reef, Fairway Beacon, St Kilda and Grange Tyre Reef.

Squid can be found all along the Metro coast, with good catches coming from Sellicks Beach, Moana, Marino, Brighton, Semaphore and Outer Harbor. The new Shimano Sephia Egixile BB Squid jigs are really producing the some great hauls.

Some good Squid numbers have come from a few of the local jetties, with Brighton, Port Noarlunga and Henley all fishing well. 

King George Whiting can still be found by those willing to persist with the masses of Puffer Fish and Leather Jackets that seem to be in huge numbers on most inshore Whiting spots.

Heavier trace line, less berley and lots of patience will be rewarded, with some good sized King George Whiting being caught amongst the less desirable species.

Yellowfin Whiting catches have come from Grange and Tennyson with good sized fish coming from Brighton and Somerton, with better numbers caught at Pt Gawler and Thompsons Beach.

We have had some excellent reports and feedback from those using the Jackson Ebi Panic and Saku Snoop Pop lures, with couple bag limits of 40cm fish falling to these lures.

Bream have been coming from the Onkaparinga River, with some large fish also coming from nearby beaches. Other Bream reports have come from West lakes and the North Arm in the Port River. The Zman Grubz in 2.5" are always reliable, and some great catched have come from using the Gulp 2" Shrimps.

Some BIG Salmon are coming from West Lakes at the moment with a 4kg beast caught recently. Try soft plastics like the Berkley Powerbait 3.7" Pro T-Tail Shad. Salmon love 'em! Apart from Salmon, anglers are still hooking some decent King George Whiting in West Lakes too. 

YORKE PENINSULA

Garfish are in good numbers and excellent size at Tiparra Lighthouse, with a very light berley trial bringing them to the boat pretty quickly.

Other Garfish reports have come from Ardrossen, Wallaroo, Port Pirie, Fishermans Bay and Moonta Bay. Jetty anglers are also finding Garfish at Moonta Bay Jetty, Edithburg Jetty and Wallaroo Jetty.

King George Whiting have been best towards Cape Elizabeth for Port Hughes anglers, with larger fish being caught out wider and at the Steamer Channel. Other Whiting reports have been from Port Victoria, Balgowen and Edithburg.

Blue Swimmer Crabs have been coming from Port Hughes, Wallaroo and Price, with some large ones also coming from Port Pirie.

Yellowfin Whiting have come from Wallaroo, Port Vincent, Port Julia, Port Pirie and Price.

Some good reports continue to come from Port Augusta, where consistent catches of Kingfish have been coming from those downrigging live baits or jigging. 

If jigging near the “wall” try using 150-200gm slow pitch jigs such as the Samaki Choona V2 or the Abu Garcia Salty Stage Skid Jig.

EYRE PENINSULA

Anglers fishing the Far West Coast beaches have been doing very well, with great catches of Mulloway between 40-70lbs coming from Yalata and the Dog Fence Beach.

King George Whiting have come from Tumby Bay, Thistle Island and Farm Beach.

Squid have been coming from the jetties at Port Lincoln, Tumby Bay and Port Neill.

Other Squid news has been from Arno Bay and Whyalla.

Garfish have been in good numbers at Port Lincoln and Coffin Bay, with other good catches coming from Whyalla and Port Neill.

Southern Bluefin Tuna to 15kg are around in good numbers off of Streaky Bay and Ceduna, with some reports of schools sighted behind Rocky Island. The Samaki Pacemaker are a great deep diving lure option, and the Bonze Bruiser range of skirts are always reliable for these early smaller fish.

Salmon are in good numbers at Sheringa and further west at beaches near Fowlers Bay. The Jackson Gallop Assist lures and Samaki Torpedo V2 lures are perfect for casting from the beach.

FLEURIEU PENINSULA

School Mulloway have been biting well in the Coorong, with good catches coming from the channel leading up to Tauwitcherie Barrage and Sugars Beach.

Offshore Victor Harbor has seen good catches of Nannygai, Shark and Blue Morwong. Nannygai love eating the Gillies Ockta lure - great for pulling some bigger fish from the school.

Cape Jervis launchers have also found good catches of Nannygai and Shark, with some nice size King George Whiting also coming in.

Squid have been in good numbers at Encounter Bay and The Bluff, with Rapid Bay also fishing quite well in the early mornings. For South Coast squid we always suggest having a redhead/white body squid jig in the asenal like the original hand painted Yo-Zuri version. Pro fisherman on the South Coast buy these from us in huge amounts.

Garfish have been caught at Rapid Bay and Lady Bay, with a few nice sized ones caught at Rapid bay Jetty.

SOUTH EAST

Salt Creek has been firing for big Mulloway to 50lb over the past couple weeks, with plenty of smaller fish around the 30lb mark also keeping anglers busy.

School and Gummy Sharks have been coming from Salt Creek and Canunda, with some nice sized ones landed over the past two weeks.

Salt Creek has a few big Salmon caught on metal casting lures, which have been making great baits for the Mulloway and Shark. 

Garfish are of good size at Livingstons and Cape Douglas, with some really big ones caught by most of the guys fishing that area.

RIVERLAND - FRESHWATER

The Murray Cod season has opened for those heading across the border to NSW, with our Cod opening only a few weeks away on the 1st Jan.

Callop have been in great numbers for the last few weeks, with plenty getting caught on baits and lures.

Best areas have been Purnong, Walker Flat, Berri, Loxton and Cadell.

Yabbies have been reported in pretty good numbers recently, with some nice catches from Lyrop, Ramko and the backwaters downstream from Bowhill.

Carp are spawning in the backwaters and can be easily seen on the surface.

They can be targeted on light Fly Fishing gear, small lures and baits when in these situations.

Bait fishing for Carp can be done from just about any part of the river, with fish easily attracted by a steady berley trail.
