Fishing report for Kangaroo Island | March 20

Mullet schools are showing up on the beaches around Kangaroo Island. And perhaps following them have been some big bronze whaler sharks taken in recent weeks.

Shane at Emu Bay Fishing Charters posted a photo of some happy customers with a feed of snapper and whiting, so the snapper must still be out there. You just have to get up early and use plenty of berley.

There are a few straggler southern bluefin tuna still being caught out of Victor Harbor, so they could also remain off the south coast.  

Tommies are in good numbers and good size in Kingscote, so worth a look at the jetty at night. Blue crabs still in good numbers around Nepean Bay.  A bag limit is even possible off the Kingscote jetty with tide movement essential to getting a good feed.

The King George whiting are starting move off the summer grounds and shallower blue holes into deeper water, so it might pay to venture out a bit further.

They can still be found in the shallows though and the incoming tide is best as always.

Black bream are also always an option on the Island, but please release these fish as they are just hanging in some pretty low rivers at the moment.

There are very long-lived fish, do not stand up well to fishing pressure and are only available in a few of the Island's rivers.
