Port Lincoln Fishing Report – Wednesday 13th November 2019

Port Lincoln Fishing Report – Wednesday 13.11.19

When the wind is not blowing the fishing is generally excellent and now there are multiple reports of Tuna being caught along the West Coast which will get plenty of fishers excited about the summer ahead. Most areas have been battered by wind so reports have really only come through from the weekend.

Far West

When the wind is down Mulloway come out to bite and there’s some big fish coming in from the beaches West of Ceduna. Salmon, Sharks and the odd Snapper have all been caught. Tuna have been caught out from Fowlers Bay along with Samson fish, Nannygai and Snapper are reported to be in big numbers on reef drops which must be returned. Tuna were also caught off of Streaky Bay to around 12kg.

Coffin Bay

In the bay all the usual fish are biting including Salmon Trout, Tommies, Garfish and a few Whiting, they can be caught from the shore or by boat. Gummy Sharks are also around and with the full moon, it’s a good time to target them.

Farm Beach have plenty of Whiting around and the deeper water grounds sound like the best areas but they can found on shallower spots too, sometimes not in big numbers.

Garfish are in good numbers and Snook, Tommies and Squid can also be found on many Whiting spots. Offshore the action is just starting to fire up with the arrival of Tuna which were caught over the weekend but just smaller fish so far.

Samson fish, Kingfish, Nannygai and Blue morwong have all been found offshore. Salmon have been caught at all the Salmon beaches with Gunyah and Convention Beaches being reported to be in good numbers.

Off the jetties Squid have been the main catch mostly early morning and late afternoons. In the bays there is a mixture of Whiting, Garfish, Snook, Tommies, Squid and also Sharks. There are some big Bronze Whalers around the National Park and Boston Island. Thistle Island has Whiting and there patches of Whiting at Louth Bay. Offshore there are Tuna reports which will only get better from here. Samson fish, Nannygai, Blue Morwong and Sharks have also been caught in the deeper water drops. Salmon fishing along the Sleaford Bay is exceptional red hot fishing. Schools of Salmon are all along the coast here and many in the 3-4kg range. Well worth a trip here.       

Tumby Bay

The Group is good for Whiting, Snook and Squid when you can get out there. The jetty has Squid, Snook, Tommies and there have also been a few Kingfish around. The marina does have some Yellowfin Whiting and also some Bream.

Port Neill and Arno Bay

Whiting, Snook and Squid have been caught at both areas by boat fishers and the jetties have Squid, Sook, and Garfish. Yellowfin Whiting are good from the beaches.
