WHILE the whiting and squid fishing hasbeen a bit quiet this week, there are plenty of other options.

The schools of salmon I saw at Millers Hole on the weekend were massive.

Blue morwong are plentiful offshore and there are some really big garfish availablelocally as well.

Elliston/SheringaAustralian salmon are the main target up on the surf beaches, withfish averaging2-4 kilograms.

Talia Beach seems to be holding the biggest fish still with some over 5kg.

There are also some King George whiting in the shallows at Sheringa and Elliston jetty has tommies, garfish and some King George whiting. Gummy sharks have been caught off Talia Beach during the night.

Coffin BayFarm Beach has been good for King George whiting in the 33cm-plusbracket. There are also some nice southern calamari around the same areas as the whiting.

Out wide of Point Sir Isaacs there have been plenty of 50cm to60cm snapper, and nannygai.

Convention to Drummond and Almonta/Gunyah beaches have good numbers of 2-4kgAustralian salmon.

Port LincolnProper Bay has been quiet for both whiting and squid. Once the water clears up and the tides get a bit bigger, the fishing should improve.

Around Boston and Porter bays, the squid, snook and garfish have been good, with some of the garfish being longer than 40cm.

Sleaford to Wanna has masses of Australian salmon in big schools. Some that have been caught are around 5kg, but the average is 2-4kg. It can be a bit of a waiting game when the schools are out widebut most daysthey will come in close enough to cast to. A bit of berley can also get some fish to venture in close. Metal lures and brined pilchards are the best options.

Offshore has seen a few very nice blue morwong caught as well as reef species like nannygai, swallowtail and trevally.

King George whiting have been okay in the passage from about Carcass down to Thistle Islandbut are still hit and miss. Keep moving aroundor drift fish.

Locally and around the national park, the flathead have started to go quietbut there are still a few nice specimens about.Yellowfin whiting are still in front of the Limanibut were hard to fish for onthe windy days.

Tumby BayTumby has seen some good whiting fishing in close and plenty of salmon trout in themarina. The group has some rugger snapper and nice sized squid when the weatherallows anglers to get out there.
