We have had a bit of everything this week weather wise. Plenty of anglers got out and caught fish when the wind slowed down. Even I managed to get out for a fish! Now for what was biting and where

West Coast
Convention beach saw anglers land a good feed of mullet and big tommies. Salmon reports were slow. Point Drummond and Greens bay had reports of king George whiting of just legal size caught by land based anglers. Good numbers of Salmon have been caught from Locks Well up to Talia. Fish to 3.5 Kg were landed on baits and lures.

Coffin Bay
Farm beach boaties reported good catches of king George whiting, up to 40cm coming from between 2 & 13 metres of water. Similar reports came further up the coast from Coles Point. Offshore from Coffins has seen Gummy sharks, Nannygai and Blue Morwong caught when conditions allowed.

Port Lincoln 
The south coast has seen some good catches of tommies and mullet coming from Wanna. Salmon schools were spotted between Millers Hole and Wanna.

Squid reports have been patchy, there are a few around, but not in large numbers. Try around Stenross, Snooks landing, the town jetty, and Billy Lights if you are after a small feed.

King George seem to remain on the quieter side throughout local bays, with only a few decent catches reported. Boston bay along with the North shore had some decent fish for boaties, whilst Proper bay remains quiet. The Passage saw boaties manage a good feed of King George Whiting, a few flathead, Tommies and Salmon trout.

Yellowfin whiting were caught along the North Shore through to Tumby Bay, with some very plump fish being caught for patient anglers.

Port Neill/Arno Bay
A few snook and tommies were reported from the jetty.
King George Whiting were reported in close. Squid baits were the best option.

Tumby Bay
Boaties fishing the Group reported good King George whiting catches, along with some decent snook caught trolling with deep diving minnows.

Cowell
More Yellowfin Whiting were reported in shallow water. Surface poppers and bloodworms were the best option.
