INthe picture this week are John Peters with his 1.29kg trevally and a 2.64kg salmon, Wayne Paterson with his 250 gm garfish andSyd Calverley with a530gram whiting. These fish were caught land-based during the Port Lincoln Anglers Club competition on April 10. Just some examples of the great fish that can be caught locally during this time of the year.
Now for what was biting and where:
Elliston/Sheringa:The Elliston jetty has had anglers catching king george whiting during early morning, or late afternoon. The surf beaches have been hard going with big swells during the week, but should be worth a try once they calm down.
Coffin Bay:Rock ledges around the township had proven to provide land based anglers with decent catches of king george whiting of legal size, and ‘massive’ tommies.Boaties in the Farm Beach vicinity are reporting that king george whiting are generally slow and quiet, with fish size also lacking. Most reports indicate that some fish can be found if you move to different drops, however most fish caught were undersized.
Tommies are being caught all the way up the coast with some fish measuring up to 30cm.Sir Isaacs has been fairly quiet for Nannygai, but Frenchmans has some good sized snapper being caught on squid heads and lucanus jigs.
Port Lincoln:Land based anglers trying around Billy Lights Point had success on mixed sized garfish, with most fish generally being of legal size. There have also been good numbers of snook, squid and king george whiting in the area.
Boaties fishing around Boston Island are reporting good numbers of plump king george whiting.
The main jetty has had a great week with lots of activity. Species caught were:mullet, garfish of all sizes, yellowfin whiting, king george whiting, squid, and tommies. Some snook were also caught in the hours leading into the evening, biting best on fresh pilchards, or pilchard imitation lures.
The North Shore has seen boaties doing well on squid, garfish, tommies, salmon trout, and king george whiting. Land based anglers fishing the North Shore reported much the same species, with a few flathead also being caught on soft plastics.
Tumby Bay:Some boaties are reporting good catches of king george whiting, and silver trevally. Some anglers did struggle to find decent numbers of fish on a patch, causing them to move around to different drops. The group is generally hard work for king george whiting.
The Port Neill jetty has been reliable for squid, garfish, tommies, snook, and some decent salmon trout to one kilogram.
