Despite the cold northerly winds, plenty of anglers got out for a fish on the weekend. Here's what was biting and where.

West Coast: The good run of school and gummy sharks continues right up the West Coast. Squid or salmon fillets have been the best bait. Most beaches are holding schools ofsalmon. Locks Well, Talia and Convention have all produced some good fish this week.

Don't forget that the Salmon Competition is on at the moment, so if you are heading up for a fish, sign up and weigh in your salmon.

Coffin Bay: King George whiting have been patchy inside the bay. Anglers have had better results on squid, garfish and tommies this week.

Farm Beach reports have been about good numbers of King George whiting, squid, gummy sharks and a few silver whiting.

Offshore has seen good catches of nannygai "not too far out". Lumo jigs like the Samaki Choona and Shimano Sardiune Waver have been doing well. Flathead have been caught by anglers casting soft plastics

Port Lincoln: King George Whiting have been reported in good numbers around Carcase, Thistle, Taylors and North Shields. Berley is a must, but make sure you don't feed the fish or have your berley take them away with the current.

Squid have been good again this week. Most spots are producing good sized squid, with one angler catching one with a hood length of 50cm. North Shields jetty, town jetty and around Stenross have been good areas to get a bag of squid. Solid Black jigs have been hard to beat this week, with white, pink and KG whiting being the next best.

Offshore has seen some good catches of big nannygai being taken around Thistle and Williams Islands this week. Lumo jigs, soft plastic squid or squid baits have been working well.

A few gummy sharks have been reported around the Taylors, Thistle and Williams Island areas, so a big bait out the back of the boat, or from the shore is a good option.

For those anglers that want to chase garfish, they are still around in good numbers in a few locations. Usually not far from some of the big tommies that are around the bay at the moment.

Tumby Bay: King George whiting have been good at the Group. Squid or prawn baits have produced the goods when used with a good berley trail.

Tumby jetty has been a bit hit and miss for squid this week. Some days there are lots caught, then the next there seem to be none around. There have also been some nice tommies caught around the jetty on gents.

Inside the Marina, there are salmon trout, tommies, whiting and a few trevally being caught.

Port Neill/Arno Bay: Not too many reports from Arno or Port Neill this week. The one thing that we did hear was that there were some nice squid caught from the jetty.

Cowell: King George whiting were caught just outside the Harbour entrance. There are also a few squid, Tommies and Garfish in the same area. Yellowfin whiting are still around in big numbers, as well as a few Flathead inside the Harbour.

Port Lincoln Anglers Club: Anglers club members attended their first event for the new season on Sunday 5th July fishing the Gunyah Beach / Almonta region.
