RECENT storms have removed most of the sand from the local beaches and salmon have started to hang a bit further offshore.

To make up for that, king george have started to move into the bay, with a few catches from jetties and the shoreline, here’s hoping for nice weather so that anglers can take advantage. 

Now for what was biting and where!

Elliston/Sheringa

Surf beaches have been badly affected by the recent storms and there have been few reports of salmon this week. 

Try the Elliston jetty for a mixed bag of whiting, garfish and the odd flathead.

Coffin Bay

Boats have been out chasing yellowtail kingfish, but they have been elusive so far.

Live squid is the best option fished under a float, but patience and time are most important at the moment.

King george whiting have been plentiful in most areas, but size is still an issue, the best areas have been the Ledge, Longnose and around the oyster leases.

Farm Beach has been fishing well for king george whiting and squid; cockles and some berley and a bit of searching should see you get a good feed.

Venture out a bit wider for nannygai and sergeant bakers.

Port Lincoln

Finally, some king george whiting caught in Proper Bay and around jetties and crushed mussel seems to be the best berley option.

Fish in  two to five metres of water between the Monument and Horse Rock at high tide and dusk.

The wharf has been holding large schools of tommies, fishing at night with berley has been the most effective. 

Out wider, Thistle Island has been the spot for good numbers of king george whiting to 40cm, most are just legal and cockles and squid strips were the best bait options. 

Tumby Bay

Yellowfin whiting are holding in the marina and around the foreshore and there are big garfish being caught between north of the jetty.

A bit further north, there have been reports of silver trevally and salmon to 1kg being caught close to shore. 

The Group has seen snapper to 60cm, but take lots of rigs if you want to chase them.
