New! GPS Conversion Websites

Here are a couple of free-to-use websites that can help with GPS mark conversion. If your GPS receiver uses a different coordinate system to the one we use, these sites may help in converting them for your use!


An exclusive for members! As part of improvements to member benefits - these are in addition to my SA Fishing Pathfinder marks!

METRO Remember the annual statewide snapper closure begins midday Nov 1 and continues through until midday Dec 15. Most grounds from Marino a to Brighton have big KG whiting in steady numbers. Snapper of various sizes have come in from St Kilda & the Star Wreck, while squid & ruffs can be caught at Hallett Cove through to Brighton/Seacliff, & a slight seabreeze is useful in bringing the fish on to the bite. KG whiting are out from Grange and the AAMi grounds. Blueys have begun appearing on the northern beaches and most metro jetties. Salmon trout & squid can be caught from Brighton & Pt Noarlunga jetties, with yellowfin whiing scattered around the small beaches at Triggs, Seaford & Moana.

SOUTH COAST 1. Goolwa: some very decent catches of mullet have come from the beaches around Hindmarsh Island, the Mundoo channel and Tauwitchere Barr. Wirrina - Rapid Bay: there are KG whiting north of the marina entrance and squid and snook off the breakwater at Wirrina. The jetties at Second Valley and Rapid Bay have big tommies, squid and a few trevally at Rapid Bay especially. Reports of garfish in the northern end of the bay towards the cliffs at Rapid Bay as well. Cape Jervis: tommies and snook are the go this week with the odd KG whiting as well. Best bait for the whiting has been small mussels or cockles. Victor Harbor - Encounter Bay: if you can find a sheltered spot this week, there are squid and snook in the bay towards the Bluff. Tommies and squid from the Bluff Wharf at night and still salmon off the beaches at Waits and Parsons. Goolwa - Murray Mouth: had a reliable report of a nice 5kg mulloway caught up near the Goolwa Barrage last week, as well as just inside the river mouth. Decent size mullet at Sugars Beach and in the Mundoo Channel. Small gummy shark off the beaches ad Goolwa. For those who enjoy salmon, here's a quick tasty salsa to serve with your fish: Chop and combine 1 mango, half red onion, 1 red chilli, half green capsicum, bunch of coriander and the juice of 1 lime. This is delicious and so easy. Spoon over your cooked salmon or favourite fish.

YORKE PENINSULA Port Broughton: Yellowfin whiting and blue swimmer crabs here at the moment. If you're chasing squid try sitting on the southern side of Shag Island. Fisherman's Bay has yellowfin whiting in close and KG whiting out further in the channel. Wallaroo: The good conditions on Saturday saw many boats at the ramp all throughout the day with blue swimmers caught in steady numbers. KG whiting also were popular with fishers returning from north of Pt Riley and also down at Bird Island with those fishing north/north west of the island at the Ballast grounds doing best. The jetty has plenty of big squid judging by the ink stains, with some nice garfish being landed as well. There are yellowfin whiting in the bay and the Marina has mullet. Moonta Bay - Balgowan: The jetties along this part of the coast are all producing tommies (Australian Herring), large squid and plenty of blue crabs. Boats heading south towards Cape Elizabeth are hooking onto some good size KG whiting with big fleshy shoulders. There are good yellowfin whiting and crabs along the blue line north of the Moonta Bay boat ramp. Garfish and crabs at Port Hughes. Balgowan offers KG whiting and snook. Point Turton - Pondalowie: I had one of my members email to say he had caught garfish and yellowfin whiting straight out from Hardwicke Bay last week, so my bet is they are still there. The jetty at Pt Turton has tommies (Australian Herring) and squid. KG whiting catches from Pt Souttar to Corny Point are still good along with the broken ground out from Couch Beach and The Pines. Pondie Bay has salmon trout and tommies (Australian Herring) from the beach for those camping in the area. Marion Bay - Stenhouse Bay: There are garfish and tommies (Australian Herring) off the Marion Bay jetty, and for the boaties, try your luck for KG whiting south of the ramp halfway to the point in a direct line with the end of the jetty. Stenhouse Bay jetty also has squid and tommies (Australian Herring). The beaches to the north of Marion Bay have salmon trout and mullet in the gutters. Edithburgh - Stansbury: The ever reliable squid have been coming off the Edithburgh jetty this week along with some nice size garfish caught using a pencil float with two small spaced hooks on line about a metre from the float. Best bait for these being cockle on one hook and squid on the other. Sultana Point has garfish and yellowfin whiting at the southern end, while boats coming back from Tapley Shoals had KG whiting. There are yellowfin whiting at Stansbury in the shallow water north of the town and the jetty has garfish and blue swimmer crabs. Rakers out from the Hutt got onto some very decent blueys. Wool Bay has plenty of squid both from the jetty and boats. Black Point-Ardrossan: Working our way up the coast, blue crabs can be found at Sheoak Flat and Port Julia. Yellowfin whiting are now appearing between Pine Point and Black Point in steady numbers. Blue crabs at Pine Point with rakers doing exceptionally well. There are garfish in good numbers north of Pine Point judging by the boats and berleys trails out. James Well and Rogues Point crabbers are getting plenty raking. Ardrossan fishing is good at the moment with nice catches of squid, garfish and tommies (Australian Herring) coming from the town jetty. Yellowfin whiting and garfish straight out from the lookout south of the town. Blue crabs at Tiddy Widdy beach. Tight Lines!

EYRE PENINSULA If you are planning a West Coast fish soon, it would be worth your while to stop off at Pt Augusta where kingfish are near the old Powerhouse drops. Blue crabs are also making an appearance at the top of the gulf now. Cowell has snook & big yellowfin whiting out from Germein Point, while Pt Lincoln has KG whiting in Proper Bay. Coffin Bay & Elliston have yellowfin whiting from their jetties, while Baird Bay has garfish, squid & ruffs. Further west we have gar & KG whiting from Acraman Creek & Bosanquet Bay. Tight Lines!

SOUTH EAST Squid & KG whiting have been caught out from Kingston, Boatswain's Point & Robe when weather permitted. The upper reaches of the Coorong have mulloway, shark, salmon & mullet at the 32 Mile Crossing, Salt Creek & Policeman's Point. The tuna have almost finished but a few have been caught from big boat crews fishing out of Port Mac. Garfish, squid & mullet can be caught from Little Dip, Nora Creina Bay & Beachport. Tight Lines!
