What a great week of weather we have just had. Little to no wind and sunny days make up for the freezing mornings. The fishing has been pretty good too for those that had the opportunity to get out.
Now for what was biting and where

West Coast 
Salmon have been caught in good numbers to 4KG between Greenly and Talia beaches. In the sheltered bays there have been good numbers of silver and King George Whiting, flathead and garfish caught. Try Around the rocky headlands and points for Snapper, Silver Trevally and Sweep. 
Sheringa anglers have reported Salmon in the 2-4Kg range and a few good Flathead along the beaches.

Coffin Bay
The ledge has been the pick of the spots for King George Whiting to 38cm. Cockles and Squid are the best baits. There are also plenty of Salmon Trout to 500 grams and big Tommies in the area. Seal Corner has reports of a few rugger snapper being caught on squid baits.
Around Point Sir Isaacs, there have been good catches of Bight Redfish, Blue Morwong and some gummy sharks.
Farm beach has King George Whiting from just size to 35cm.

Port Lincoln 
Proper Bay has Whiting, lots of Salmon Trout to 500g,Snook, Squid, and Garfish. 
The King George have been averaging around 35cm.
Along the Lincoln Foreshore, Yellowfin Whiting to 40cm have been caught on worms, prawns and cockles. Flathead and a few King Georges have also been caught from the foreshore and town Jetty.
The town Jetty has also been good for Squid this week. Try smaller, good quality jigs for best results. Best colours have been White, Black or the King George Yamashita pattern in 2.5 sizes. 
Anglers chasing Whiting have been catching King George to 50cm around the top end of Thistle Island. There are plenty of King George, Squid, Flathead, Salmon Trout, Tommies and Rugger Snapper between Point Donnington and Memory Cove for both shore based and boat anglers. Carcase Rock has been a bit of a hot spot for the Ruggers and some nice Whiting this week.
Offshore angers have been doing well on Nannygai and Blue Morwong. Jigs and squid baits are working the best.

Port Neill/Arno Bay
Some good Snapper are still being caught out wide from Arno Bay. Fish to 8Kg have been reported from out wide, whiule the inshore reefs seem to be holding fish to 4Kg. Big Snook are in good numbers for boaties hitting lures while drifting or trolling. King George Whiting and squid are being caught from most areas between Arno and Pt Neill.

Tumby Bay
King George Whiting to 50cm have been caught at the group Most fish are in the high 30cms. Squid and cockle baits are the best. There are also plenty of Squid, Snook and Salmon around and Rugger Snapper on the reefs.
Yellowfin Whiting, Snook, Squid and Garfish have all been caught from the jetty foreshore area. It would also be worth flicking few soft plastics around for Flathead

In this weeks photos we have Matt Emming from Lincoln and Wayne Jarrod from Murray Bridge with good examples of fish that can be caught locally at the moment. Photos courtesy of GT Fishing Charters.
