Here is what was biting across the Eyre Peninsula and where.

COFFIN BAY

Greenly Beach has had excellent reports of salmon, with most fish averaging between 40 centimetres through to 70cm.

Schools were plentiful, with fish occasionally moving close to shore which made casting lures a worthwhile exercise.

Gunyah Beach had fished very well over the past week, with salmon reported there caught in excess of four kilograms.

Longnose had reports of King George whiting, however most were just on legal size, with some being a couple of centimetres under the legal size.

PORT LINCOLN

Sleaford to Wanna held consistent schools of salmon, with fish generally being all of decent size.

Fish schools were spotted stretching from Wreck Beach through to Wanna.

Yellowfin whiting were caught some afternoons near the Limani and Stenross, biting best on clickers or worms.

Big tommies were caught all throughout Boston Bay, with some measuring into the 20cm range.

Salmon were thick, in local bays, with some weighing up to one kilogram.

The town jetty produced decent numbers of squid, with the occasional catches of King George whiting along with big tommies.

TUMBY BAY

The jetty had produced excellent numbers of big squid for land-based anglers, along with the odd King George whiting, averaging between 35cm to 43cm.

Boaties fishing the Group reported mixed sizes of King George whiting, with some being on the smaller side of the ruler.

Most were not a concern, but anglers had to ensure that their measuring devices were on standby.

Squid were also thick, however as with the whiting, the size was generally not great.

Salmon weighing up to one kilogram were caught inside the bay by anglers casting metal lures and soft plastics.
