Port Lincoln Fishing Report

Port Lincoln Fishing Report 11 August 2017


The mystery weight for the 5th fortnight for the 2017 Salmon competition was 1.250kg.

Congratulations to Ian Brooks of Parafield Gardens, for winning the mystery weight prize of $200. His Salmon weighed in at exactly 1.250kg and was caught at Mount Camel.

Now for what was biting and where
West Coast

Most beaches are holding schools of Salmon. Talia still seems to be holding the bigger fish, but Locks Well has also seen some good sized fish landed. Flathead, Mullet, Whiting and Squid have been caught in the bays when the weather isn’t too bad.

Coffin Bay

King George Whiting are a popular target for land based anglers fishing from the jetty. Size of the Whiting are mixed as always, but anglers are managing to find decent numbers of legal sized fish if they remain persistent.  

Port Lincoln

Salmon schools are still along the Sleaford to Wanna coast. Although we haven’t had many reports there since the foul weather several schools have been sighted.

Yellowfin Whiting are being caught in good numbers, with best results coming from anglers fishing between the Limani Motel, and Axel Stenross using seaweed worms.

North Shields jetty and surrounding areas are producing some good numbers of mixed sized squid and whiting during sunrise and sunset. The North Shore had flathead up to 50cm caught on soft plastics. A good spot to fish the westerly winds at this time of year.

Anglers fishing throughout the marina reported that some Kingfish are still in the area, and will bite for persistent anglers. Surface poppers remain to return the best results, especially if berley is used.

Port Neill/Arno Bay

Squid from the jetties have been to only reports this week due to the weather.

Tumby Bay
The Group has been a popular location for boaties, reporting good numbers of fish and squid. King George Whiting and Squid were in good numbers, and generally of good size.


Yellowfin Whiting are hit and miss. It seems to depend on the wind and the tides, but poppers or worms have accounted for a few fish on the better days.
