Gday Fellas,
Im new to the forum and to South Oz. I moved down from North QLD with my fiance late last year and am looking for any info on locations/ species etc in the Southern Metro areas of Adelaide. Weve been quite successful with squid off the jettys but are keen to get onto some decent fish and get the yaks wet. Any help would be very much appreciated.
Cheers,
Rags ;-)

Welcome to the forum and to adelaide Rags! Plenty of great options for yak fishing around your home base. Perhaps not as great as those in North Qld though!

If you like it calm then check out the Onkaparinga River ("The Onk"). Can generally pick up a mix of species including flathead, bream, mullet and even mulloway if you are lucky. Concentrate your efforts in the few km's between Noarlunga Oval (upstream) and the Pt Noarlunga bridge. It is quite tidal so keep an eye on this so you don't end up stuck in the mud!

In the salt you can chase squid around Hallet Cove and Seacliff or fish for a bunch of species (tommies, salmon trout, gar, whiting, flathead etc etc) along the inner reefs between Brighton and Glenelg. There is a good ramp in most of the suburbs so plenty of launch options if you are not looking for a long paddle.

What yak are you paddling?

Cheers

Sean

Yep, welcome to AKFF and our little country town :D . Sean's covered most of it already but another option if the sea's a bit too rough is the Port River system. Even if you don't fish there it's worth at least one visit to Garden Island. Some of the creeks in the mangroves can be interesting and there are often dolphins around. Watch out for big tides if you go as there are large mud flats that can appear and there are strong currents around the ship's graveyard in the North Arm.

Larger salmon are often around Pt Noarlunga during the colder months, with small ones in the Onk too, and although they are best eaten fresh they can be fun to catch

Also be aware there are some no fishing zones around the reefs at Christies Beach, Pt Noarlunga and Aldinga and do try to avoid the pink pointers at Maslins in the warmer months. ;-)
