Gunya and Almonta beaches continue to provide shore-based anglers with good catches of salmon.

Fish vary in size, but average around about 2.5 kilograms, with larger and smaller fish in among them.

Farm Beach had good whiting reports before the wind blew up during the week.

Land based action has been minimal, with only a few reports over the past week.

Salmon trout seem to be easy enough to catch, but whiting, tommies, mullet, snook and silver trevally were quiet.

Port Lincoln

Local jetties and rocks are providing anglers with good numbers of squid and the main jetty, Axel Stenross, and Billy Lights Point were the most reliable spots.

Whiting and reports filtered in from Carcass Rock down to Thistle Island/Taylors Landing.

Best reports from Proper Bay and the National Park Coastline were around dusk.

Squid came from the above areas as well as the North Shore, Boston Island and Louth Bay.

Garfish are still a popular target for land based anglers fishing from jetties and rocks and seem to be biting well during the early hours of the morning, or at night for dabbers.

Flathead are biting from locations with broken bottom and sandy beaches. Best results came from anglers using soft plastics and pilchards.

Salmon down the south coast are firing, with a number of fish being caught during the past week.

There were not many sightings of schools, however plenty of fish were caught from deep gutters, using either pilchard baits, or metal slugs with a bit of colour.

Yellowfin whiting are on the quieter side of things with only a few decent reports coming in.

Land based anglers fishing between the Port Lincoln Hotel and Axel Stenross say there is plenty there but are being very fussy.

Arno Bay/Cowell

Boaties did well on squid, whiting, snook and the odd snapper when weather conditions allowed.

Tumby Bay

Reports came from land based anglers fishing the jetty, indicating that plenty of mixed size squid are being caught during the day and night.

The Group was the only other location mentioned, indicating that plump king george whiting were in good numbers, along with squid, tommies, and red mullet.
