Adam Shutz is pictured using a new technique to target deep-sea fish in hundreds of metres of water.

Using an electric reel in 350-metre depth he put down a 2 kilogram, 70 centimetre jig, set the reel to the auto jigging function and was rewarded with this nice blue eye trevalla.

Hapuka, gemfish, sea bass and even broadbill swordfish have been landed using this method.

Now for what was biting and where.

West Coast

A few salmon schools were active at Sheringa, Locks Well, Talia and Mount Camel Beaches.

The Annual Salmon Competition starts again on June 1 and runs until the end of August.

Hopefully we will see some of those 6kg plus monster salmon about again this winter.

Coffin Bay

Boaties and land-based anglers have been doing well on big garfish, salmon trout and whiting from just undersize to about 36cm.

Fish came from the Ledge, Seal Corner, the Brothers, Dutton Bay and the rocks around Coffin Bay itself.

The occasional school shark was caught in the bay and also out wide were nannys and a few snapper up to 85cm.

Farm Beach, Frenchman, and Gallipoli grounds had similar size whiting as inside the bays.

Port Lincoln

Squid reports have been coming in from just about everywhere this week both for boaties and those that are fishing off the rocks and local jetties.

Some really big squid were landed behind Boston Island, Hawkers Devil, Thistle Island and between Cape Doninton and Taylors Landing.

A few tuna and plenty of samsons were found by SA Fishing Charters around Wedge Island.

The Port Lincoln foreshore really fired up for yellowfin whiting on good tides with a few quotas landed. Prawns and worms were the best baits.

Cowell

Yellowfin Whiting have fired in Franklin Harbour while good size snapper are being reported out further.

Port Neill/Arno Bay

Snapper reports are still coming in with fish averaging 45 to 90cm caught on both shallow inshore drops to out wide.

Whiting seem to be a bit hit or miss but big gar and snook are firing.

Tumby Bay

Some found whiting easy out at the Group but struggled a bit during the day with the fish feeding at night on the full moon.

Big squid were plentiful.

Port Lincoln Anglers Club

The anglers club’s next event, this Sunday, May 21 is a casting number two event, meeting at Wangary Oval at 9am.
