Port Lincoln Fishing Report




West Coast  

Most Mulloway reports are of fish in the 70 to 90cm range with the occasional bigger specimen. Gummy sharks, salmon and tailor are in good numbers.

Coffin Bay

Some good size and numbers of squid are coming from the Farm Beach grounds. Whiting are spread from shallow to deeper water drops along with some Gummy Sharks. Inside Coffin Bay were Garfish, Salmon trout, tommies and Gummy Sharks to 120cm. Point Drummond and surrounding beaches had 2 to 3 kg Salmon and a few whiting and flathead.

Further offshore Bight Redfish are taking baits and jigs including the Samaki Ribcage and Wingman. Anglers caught a few more Snapper before the ban at the end of the month.

Port Lincoln

There was still a few whiting caught around September Beach but it sounds like there moving into the bays now. Try Spalding Cove, Flinders Monument and down towards Horse Rock. A few small squid were found in the same areas. Squid were also found at Boston Island and The North Shore along with Snook and a few Whiting.

Those fishing Millers Hole caught big Salmon and could see sharks and seals patrolling the salmon schools. Salmon were also caught along the Sleaford to Wanna beaches.

Port Neill/Arno Bay

King George Whiting bit well at Arno Bay along with some squid. A few more Snapper were landed out wide before the ban.

Tumby Bay

Whiting catches were best at the Group, as well as snook, trevally and some squid. In closer to shore a few whiting are about but the dreaded shitties have already started to appear.


Blue Crabs are going well in Franklin Harbour with some bigger ones outside the bay.
