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!

METRO School holidays are underway & I have seen plenty of vans & boats on the road as I make my way around our great coastline! The best results when fishing for KG whiting in local metro waters is to hit the blue-line & broken patches immediately after a strong west to sou-westerly blow, using a light amount of berley & fresh bait. The grounds out at the Black Pole, St Kilda, West Beach & Brighton all hold fish, although there are quite a few undersize here as well. Snapper are in the channel at Outer Harbor & a few ruggers are off Seaford & Aldinga, away from the marine reserve areas, of course. Snook & a few small schools of winter gar are off Hallett Cove & Brighton, along with squid, tommies & salmon trout.

SOUTH COAST 1. Goolwa: the cold and windy conditions made fishing a real challenge in recent days, with some good catches of mullet coming from Sugars beach and the Mundoo channel for those braving the conditions. Salmon trout are in the river mouth and up at the Tauwitchere Barrage, with a few redfin perch at Wellington and the northern section of the Meningie Lakes. 2. Victor Harbor: squid and tommies can be caught from The Bluff and Screwpile jetties, while rock fishing from Port Elliott and Middleton has salmon trout and sweep. Boat crews have only managed the odd trip out due to the poor weather, and reported a couple of KG whiting, squid and tommies. 3. Parson's Beach: salmon and mullet are at Parson's beach and the Blow Hole, with several small schools of fish also around at Fishery beach as well. Waitpinga has been hit and miss, but I expect some bigger salmon out from here in coming days. King's beach has been quiet. 4. Cape Jervis/Rapid Bay: big tommies can be caught from both jetties at night, but you will need a thermos for sure! A steady berley trail is critical to keep the ruffs interested in your baits. Boat crews have caught KG whiting, flathead, squid and rugger snapper. 5. Wirrina: some nice squid have been caught from here and north off the Second Valley jetty, along with winter mullet and a few salmon trout. KG whiting have been the good reports from boat crews fishing off Wirrina, along with snapper, squid and tommies. Mullet and salmon trout schools continue to run along the coast past Myponga, Sellicks and Aldinga beaches.

YORKE PENINSULA Port Broughton: Mates of mine found plenty of undersize KG whiting in the channel on Sunday as they managed a fish after the wild northerly and westerly winds of the past week - most fish had to be returned, but a 3 kilo snapper was a nice result. Thank you also to the local fisho' who towed their boat into the ramp after the starter motor cooked itself! Bigger KG whiting are further offshore, along with snapper and flathead. Wallaroo: I checked the boatramp here early on Sunday morning and there were six (6) hardy souls setting out for a fish. KG whiting of just legal size are in The Bay, rugger snapper at Point Riley, while off Tickera there are KG whiting, flathead and squid when the water clears. Schools of mullet are off Pont Riley and the southern marina breakwater. Moonta Bay/Port Hughes: Catches of KG whiting are much improved in the past couple of days with fish around the 36cm mark coming on to the bite during the late afternoons. Squid and KG whiting are at West Light and Cape Elizabeth, with a few rugger snapper at the Steamer channel. Point Turton: Salmon trout and mullet can be caught from the shore at The Pines and Point Souttar, while some very nice squid are off Port Rickaby and Hardwicke Bay. KG whiting and snapper have come from Corny Point. Tommies are at the jetty. Marion and Stenhouse Bays: Salmon up to 1 kilo have been caught from Daly Heads, Brown's beach and West Cape in recent days, all taking baits of very soft squid, cockle and small pieces of pilchard flesh. Boat crews have reported snapper from Marion Bay, squid from Sturt Bay and Hillocky's beach and nice tommies at Stenhouse Bay jetty. Edithburgh/Stansbury: Tommy ruffs and squid have come from both jetties in recent days, while boat crews have been enjoying snapper catches at Tapley shoals and the Marion Reef. Big KG whiting can be caught from the grounds about 500 metres off-shore at the Troubridge Light. Black Point/Ardrossan: Tommies and squid have been the main reports from Ardrossan jetty and the boat crews who managed a fish when sheltering from the north-westerlies last week. Undersize KG whiting are schooling at Long Spit, with a few bigger fish of the north-east artificial reef. Crews fishing inside the spit at Black Point caught KG whiting and squid.

EYRE PENINSULA Reports of salmon in the 2-3 kilo range continue from Sheringa, Almonta & Lock's Well beaches as the season really begins well. KG whiting have been caught from Streaky, Coffin & Venus Bays in recent days, plus some decent salmon off the surf up to 3 kilograms have come from West Coast & Far West Coast beaches, esp Walker's Rocks, Convention beach & Fowler's Bay. Point Sinclair jetty has big tommies, squid & flathead. KG whiting are at Streaky & Venus Bays, while flathead, KG whiting & squid are at Coffin Bay & Proper Bay, with snapper at Buffalo Reef out from Pt Lincoln. KG whiting continue their run at Arno Bay, snook & squid at Cowell & Snapper from Whyalla are all steady as we run up to the June Long Weekend. Shore-based fishing has a few salmon trout, tommies & flathead coming fromCoffin Bay, Germein Point & Pt Neill.

SOUTH EAST I continue to hear reports of 40 kilo tuna well off-shore from Port Mac as the 7 metre plus boats chase these fish in deep waters, but rarely receive reports of fish at the Robe jetty! Salmon are at Salt Creek, The Granites & in the Bay at Little Dip. Snapper have been caught from Kingston & Boatswain's Point, along with KG whiting, squid & sweep. Mullet are at the jetty at Beachport & in the surf at Stinky Beach, just south of Nora Creina Bay. The Salmon Hole south of Robe has been quiet, but there are some big flathead in the shallow surf on the beach north of the Hole itself! Tight Lines!
