Very few reports over the past week but a few flathead and big whiting were caught at Sheringa and some slob salmon along Talia beach.

Coffin Bay

The Ledge has been producing good numbers of salmon trout, king george whiting, tommies, and the occasional flathead.

Farm Beach had consistent reports of undersize king george whiting. Anglers fishing deeper found better fish including the odd 40cm.

Port Lincoln

The wharf and marina are producing good numbers of salmon trout, and tommies and the town jetty had good reports of squid, some snook and the odd flathead.

Land-based anglers fishing the national park are starting to find flathead from the shoreline. Best results were from soft plastic lures, imitating small baitfish.

Fish were caught at all times of the day but persistence was key. Some anglers did better than others as they worked the same areas for extended periods.

The North Shore seems to be producing some quality king george whiting, and squid.

There were mixed reports for boaties chasing king george whiting but Thistle and Taylors islands, Donington, Proper Bay and Spalding Cove all had a few fish.

Fish size varied and consistency seemed to lack but most anglers came home with a feed.

North Shields has had reports of yellowfin whiting being caught along the foreshore through to the north and south side of the jetty.

Louth Bay has produced good numbers of mixed sized garfish for boaties dabbing on calmer nights.

Kingfish have been spotted in areas including the Billy Lights Point boat ramp.

Spear fishermen reported a school of kingfish and speared one just under a metre. Dusky morwong (strongies) were also reported.

Moonlight Bay has had reports of big garfish caught by land-based anglers.

Bronze whaler sharks were reported in many locations over the past week. At times they were a hassle for anglers at Greenly and Rocky islands. Samsons, tuna, big trevally, nannys and the occasional kingfish were found there as well as the Hummocks, Neptunes and Cabbage Patch.

Blue swimmer crabs are doing well in Boston, Proper and Louth Bays, numbers vary from day to day but size was generally excellent.

Tumby Bay

The town jetty has been going well for squid, and occasional snook near the evening.
