G'day all

We will be in and around Streaky Bay, Elliston and Port Lincoln etc for the 2 weeks in August.

Is it worth taking a 10' tinny at that time of year, or just fish of the jetties?

Any help would be appreciated.

SA winter this year long range forecast..................... wet and windy.

Check "willyweather.com.au" for forecast prior to trip.

I'd still take the tinny just incase mother nature has a kind heart.

All the best.

Hi Bo Boo,
A small tinny would be useable in many locations on Eyre Pen. and the West coast, and sheltered areas available at most times .
Local knowledge is handy and available (tackle shops in Pt Lincoln are a good place to start).
Consider Coffin Bay, about 1/2 hr from Pt Lincoln where you can catch King George Whiting and huge Yellowtail Kingfish about 300m from the boat ramp.
The town jetty in Coffin Bay has small salmon around all the time and a buzz with light tackle and small lures and soft plastics.
If you leave the tinny at home and take a small jetty rod, salmon are available almost all the time from the jetties. King George Whiting, snapper are a definite shore-based option in many areas.
Don't overlook Squid from most jetties.
A 10' surf rod will allow you to connect with some of the legendary salmon over there (up to 90cm long), and the West Coast is famous for the huge Mulloway off the beaches. However these require a lot of hard work, or just plain good luck,
Check the fishing forum we have here www.strikehook.com.au
Registration is required etc but some info can be gained
Also try http:/www.fishinsa.com.au where registration is also required.
I'm sure you'll be able to use your tinny, but for what it's worth, I don't think I'd take a tinny if I was covering the sort of territory it appears you are planning to for 2 weeks,
I'd seriously consider leaving the boat home and go for the shore base options.
Reason; I think there are more shore base options available than small boat options, and while you are trying to find somewhere suitable for the boat, you can be into 'em from shore or Jetty.
Hope this helps, and best of luck.
Bob

Forgot to mention; consider a charter for a day or half day fishing.

G'day BooBoo
If your in Streaky Bay, and you don't mind oysters, hit up Evans Oyster Shed... AMAZING... We were going to do a detour on our way back from WA just to have another go at them.. Lol.. If your down around Port Lincon.. Get the key from national parks, and go and set up at Memory Cove for a few nights.. Lost a massive fish there, after I got 200 metres of line back, saw his massive tail do a big swish, as the line snapped in the weed... All good.. Would have let him go any way... Happy travels.. Cheers Odog

Good evening fella's

I had my doubts about the boat, and you have just confirmed them.

However, I will be doing a lot of jetty fishing.

As for the oysters, well when we came back from WA a few years ago we were told about 'Evans" and packed our two fridges with 20 doz oysters.

Needless to say we consumed the lot before we got back to Scone.

Once again thanks for the info, really appreciated.

The fishing at Haslam 40 kms NW of Streaky bay is great, Squid from the jetty and if the weather comes good 10 mins out to the other side of the Oyster Lease and heaps of King George Whiting 40 cm plus, Salmon, Squid and Leather Jackets.We were there May 2013 and had a few days great weather and fishing. Also bought a dozen oysters from the Oyster Farmers there and ended up with 18 for $8 fresh out of the pots, Yum.
Cheers Kev.
