A lot of people on vacation and wanting to fish have found Yorke
Peninsula to be rewarding. It has a lot of town to get a good catch.
Spencer Gulf stretched from Port Broughton to Port Victoria. Port
Broughton is a good place to start. A boat will be needed to go along
its sheltered channels and angle for whiting or garfish or go trolling
for snook. While a good spot to go jetty fishing is Wallaroo with two
jetties, a long and a short one, with the long jetty being grainy and
the short is old. Wallaroo is near Kadina, tommyruff, small snappers,
whiting and mullet are abundant in this area.
Port Hughes is a Satellite town of Moonta, also a place known for
fishing. Cabins and villas are available to spend the day after a
rewarding day with the marine life. Port Hughes is known as an exciting
place to fish offshore where whiting and snapper are plentiful. Squid
can also be found in Port Hughes along with mullet, whiting and garfish.
On a high tide in Port Victoria, and almost everyday, tons of tommyruff
are caught. Garfish, snook, small snapper ans squid are also taken in
large numbers here. Port Victoria, which also has a good jetty, is a
launching point for boats to Wardang Island. Wardang Islandís waters are
rich thus boat operators fish here every year.
There are other places in the Yorke Peninsula that are famous fishing
spots as well, for example, Stansbury, Price, Port Vincent, Androssan
and Port Giles. Port Gilesí jetty is the longest which extended into the
deep, blue water harbor. Any species of fish can be found in this jetty
but the common ones are blue mackerel,garfish, snook, barracouta, red
mullet, whiting, salmon and squid.
