Remember to check your fishing limits here.

boy-fishing-from-jettyYorke Peninsula's lovely old jetties once serviced the farming industry with grain stacks and magnificent sailing ships, taking Yorke Peninsula grain to the world. Today these same jetties are a fisherperson's heaven, with a good feed on the menu for those who are on their luck.

Ardrossan jetty fishingArdrossan - a fantastic spot to hook some tommies, snook, salmon trout, mullet and the delicious blue swimmer crab. Over the warmer months, late afternoon to early evening is the best time.

Port Julia - a good spot when the tide is in at night for squid and tommies. Blue swimmers are also caught in pots from there during the season.

Port Vincent - often offers up catches of tommies and mullet along with the occasional bream. Late afternoon to evening is usually the best time of day.

Stansbury - good for blue swimmers in season, as well as squid, mullet, gar, tommies and snook at night under the lights. Big King George whiting can also be caught here with the best catches coming from the seaward end. 

Wool Bay - one of the best squidding jetties in South Australia, busy during holiday periods but the catches are still numerous. Tommies and gar are also frequent catches from the jetty with the best times being from late afternoon into the evening. fishing at Port Vincent jetty by Susan Pointon

Edithburgh - once South Australia's third busiest port but these days it's great for night time tommies and squid. King George whiting can be caught regularly – best caught by casting out from the south eastern corner of the jetty. The odd big snapper is caught here too.

Marion Bay - big squid are a frequent catch, and sometimes King George whiting, while Mullet are a common catch during the middle of the year

Stenhouse jetty by Bron ScholesStenhouse Bay - a great place for big sharks if you have the right gear, but tommies and squid are the regular catches and occasionally a big snapper. There are no lights on the jetty, so if you're going at night, remember to take a lantern. This jetty is inside Innes National Park, so remember to purchase your entry permit

Point Turton - Tommies, squid, snook and gar are regular catches all year round.

Port Rickaby - a great place for squid. You'll also catch a few mullet through out autumn and early winter and plenty of tommies and gar all year round. Late afternoon, early evening and sunrise are the best times for squid, but there are no lights on the jetty so be sure to take a lantern.

Port Victoria - great for squid, snook, gar and big tommies.
