FISHING REPORT | Coorong, Victor Harbor, Waitpinga and beyond

Goolwa - Coorong:

Salmon trout have finally caught up with the migrating mullet, both in the lower reaches of the river mouth and along reasonable lengths of the upper Coorong. Cockles can still be gathered along the coast, but please remember strict size, bag and possession limits apply. Mulloway around the 15 kilo mark can still be caught overnight both at the river mouth and along sections of the Goolwa barrage. Mullet have also been caught at Middleton and Sugars Beach.

Victor Harbor – Encounter Bay:

Boat crews made the most of some decent off-shore conditions to catch tuna at the Sanders Bank and Newlands Head – with best results coming from anglers using large berley trails of pilchards and chopped squid. Smaller boats fished a number of grounds out from Victor for kg whiting, squid and tommies.

Waitpinga – Cape Jervis:

Salmon have been caught from the shore at Waitpinga, Parsons and Deep Creek, while the Cape Jervis jetty has ruffs, trevalley, squid and mullet. Morgan’s Beach has mullet and flathead, while boats fishing the deep water reefs off Cape Jervis have caught rugger snapper, squid and kg whiting.

Rapid Bay – Normanville:

Near on perfect weather over the Easter weekend saw plenty of holiday traffic right along this section of our coast, with boats out from Lady Bay and Second Valley catching KG whiting, small snapper, salmon trout, mullet and squid. Local jetties have been a tad on the quiet side, but late afternoon fishing for tommies is a reasonable bet at Rapid Bay and Normanville. Squid can be caught from Myponga and Second Valley.
