West Coast

Take your pick of King George whiting, caught off the West Coast of the Yorke Peninsula, Steve Cooper

Head to Innes National Park, at the southern end of Yorke Peninsula, to find two noteworthy places for anglers. The first is Pandalowie Bay where boats can be launched and, north of this, Browns Beach. The latter is well regarded for its winter salmon fishing, and the southern end of the beach is a favourite with mulloway anglers.

As you work your way north into Spencer Gulf, there are kilometres of beach fishing and boat ramps at most of the coastal towns. Port Hughes near Moonta has a big reputation for its offshore snapper fishery. The harbour and boat ramp are well laid out and anglers who fish out of here head for Cape Elizabeth or, on calm days, the Tiparra Reef Lighthouse.

Towns from Port Hughes through to Wallaroo attract crabbers from September to April in the quest for blue swimmer crabs.
