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 Snapper up to 6 kilos have been caught before dawn at the Star wreck, St Kilda fairway beacon & the John Robb wreck. Small pilchards & a steady berley trail working well. KG whiting catches have predictably dropped back, but the deeper waters off Grange, Brighton & Hallett Cove still have a few legal fish. Blueys & gar can be caught from Largs, Semaphore & North Haven, while snook are plentiful at West Beach. Squid can be caught from Seacliff & Brighton. Snook & gar can be found off Moana & Seaford. Tight Lines!

SOUTH COAST 1. Goolwa: mullet have been schooling at several Hindmarsh Island locations, especially Sugars Beach and then over at Middleton inside the western side of the surfers point. Salmon trout are in the river mouth, along with scattered mullet. Salmon to 2 kilos are at the 32 Mile Crossing along the Coorong. 2. Victor Harbor: tuna have been finally caught offshore at The Pages and deeper water out from Victor. The Bluff has snook and tommy ruffs, while garfish and a few squid have been the other main reports over the past week. 3. Cape Jervis: snapper, red nannys and tuna to 32 kilos were some nice catches over the weekend. Boat crews also caught kg whiting from their deeper water drops, squid and tommies. Local jetty fishing here and around at Rapid Bay has squid, tommies and garfish. 4. Wirrina: snapper again made a welcome addition to the catch bags in recent days with fish up to 6 kilos being caught on squid and pilchards as bait. KG whiting can be caught at Lady Bay, Normanville and Myponga, along with gar and squid. Tight Lines!

YORKE PENINSULA 1. Port Broughton: snook, gar and mullet were the main reports over the past week, along with blueys in the main channel. Snapper catches have been very hit and miss, with a few boats doing well on the early morning tides. The jetty has the odd blue crab. 2. Wallaroo: try the Boiler grounds for King George whiting, using a minimum berley trail for best results. Garfish, snook and tommies (Australian herring) can be caught at Point Riley, while the jetty has squid and a few blueys. 3. Port Hughes/Moonta Bay: some large snook have been caught from boats fishing the bay and Tiparra reef. Cape Elizabeth also has snook, gar and small snapper. Steamer channel has snapper and kingfish to 4 kilos. Both local jetties have blueys, snook and gar. Yellowfin whiting are in close at South Beach. 4. Point Turton try Hardwicke Bay for KG whiting in the late afternoon, along with squid, tomies and flathead. The Pines has snapper offshore and Point Souttar has KG whiting, flathead and mullet. 5. Marion Bay: I received a report over the weekend of size mulloway being caught from the beach at Gleeson's Landing overnight on Saturday. Salmon trout are being landed at Brown's Beach and Berry Bay. Several large boats caught tuna out from Pondalowie Bay and closer to the Kangaroo Island shoreline when they ventured across. 6. Edithburgh/Stansbury: blueys and garfish have been the main reports, along with yellowfin whiting at several beaches north towards Port Vincent and The Hut. KG whiting have come in from Tapley shoals and the Orontes Bank. Jetty fishing has the odd blue crab and some squid after dark. 7. Ardrossan: small snapper have been caught at Long Spit while gar and blueys are south of Ardrossan for boat crews and rakers alike. Yellowfin whiting are north at Tiddy Widdy beach, while the town jetty has squid and mullet. Tight Lines!

EYRE PENINSULA Members fished the Dashwood channel at Streaky Bay over the past week for KG whiting, 3-4 kilo snapper, gar & blueys. 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 at Cowell, Whyalla & Port Pirie. Cowell also 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!

Squid & KG whiting have been caught out from Kingston, Boatswain's Point & Robe when weather permitted.
