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 Question - A new member has asked me for the GPS marks of the 'Rose Garden' out from Pt Hughes? And for the life of me I don't have them!! If you could help pse email to greg@gregjamesfishing.com.au. THX! I haven't fished Metro waters for a couple of weeks, but my reports are of gar, squid & ruffs 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, St Kilda & North Haven & fishing for them an hour or so either side of the change in tide is the way to go. Blueys have appeared in the deeper waters off Port Gawler & Middle Beach. Snapper reports have been quiet, with most fish landed coming from the grounds well south - esp. Seaford, Aldinga, Myponga & Sellicks. Salmon trout & squid can be caught from Brighton & Pt Noarlunga jetties.

SOUTH COAST 1. Goolwa: some very decent catches of mullet have come from the beaches around Hindmarsh Island, the Mundoo channel and Tauwitchere Barrage in recent days. Meninigie Lakes area is also fishing well. Mulloway and a few scattered salmon are in the reaches of the upper Coorong right down past Policeman's Point and Salt Creek. 2. Victor Harbor: The Bluff wharf has squid and tommy ruffs in the late afternoons and Sunday evening was perfect for a fish as the seas calmed slightly and the wind dropped. Boat crews have reported KG whiting, squid, sweep and small snapper. 3. Waitpinga/Parsons Beaches: salmon trout and the very odd mullet have been the main reports, with most fish coming in on lures and fresh pilchards baits. Nearby surf-based fishing has sweep and bigger salmon from the rocks. 4. Cape Jervis/Rapid Bay: red nannygai, sweep and small trevalley have made a welcome appearance in recent catches, along with squid, flathead and rugger snapper. Squid and tommies are at both jetties, while a few flathead are in close to shore at Morgan's Beach and off the Starfish Hill grounds. 5. Wirrina: KG whiting, squid and nice garfish have been caught from Second Valley, Normanville and Wirrina, with most crews catching their bag limits in the lead up to the low tide mark. Myponga and Sellicks have snapper, sweep and green mackerals.

YORKE PENINSULA Port Broughton: Snapper of various sizes can be caught from Jurassic Park and the Illusions grounds when weather permits. Big kingfish have also been off Port Pirie. Closer to shore there are squid, gar, a few scattered King George whiting and blue crabs. Wallaroo: Point Riley has squid and gar around to Tickera, with tommies (Australian herring) also taking baits with a steady berley trail. The jetty has been quiet, but should soon be producing blueys, tommies and squid. Moonta Bay/Port Hughes: KG whiting are again in the Bay and at Cape Elizabeth in the late afternoons. Best bait is fresh cockle. Snapper can be caught out on the southern end of Steamer Channel and the Tiparra Reef has squid and garfish. Both jetties have ruffs and squid and several local beaches have mullet on the high tide. Port Victoria: Port Vic anglers caught KG whiting here and at Balgowan and Barker Rocks as last week's weather improved, with most fish in the 35cm range. Snapper are off Wardang island. Point Turton: Good catches of salmon continue from The Pines right down south past West Cape, with Berry Bay, Brown's and The Dust Hole all producing fish. Boat crews have been catching gar, squid, flathead and small snapper. Marion Bay: The jetty has mullet and salmon trout. Boat crews braving the westerlies have caught KG whiting, flathead, snapper and sweep. Edithburgh/Stansbury: Snapper reports have improved from Troubridge Point and Marion Reef, with fish up to 6 kilos being landed. The eastern-side drop-off at the Orontes Bank has snapper and a few KG whiting. Jetty fishing has squid and tommies. Mullet can be caught from the wharf at Port Vincent. Black Point/Ardrossan: Squid and mullet have been the main reports from local shore/jetty-based fishing. Boat crews have reported mixed bags of KG whiting, garfish, tommies, squid and snapper at Gus Shoals. 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 in the top of the Gulf near the old Powerhouse drops. Cowell has snapper, 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, small snapper & KG whiting from Acraman Creek & Bosanquet Bay. Tight Lines!

SOUTH EAST Snapper, 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. A few tuna have been caught from big boat crews fishing out of Port Mac, but these fish are slowly moving on as their season starts to close. Garfish, squid & mullet can be caught from Little Dip, Nora Creina Bay & Beachport. Tight Lines!
