Streaky Bay Jetty? - SA
Posted 10 June 2003 - 08:01 AM
I just got an email saying Streaky Bay jetty is a good spot :D but I am not sure where it is , and when I try to reply to the email i get an "email address does not exist" error .
"Streaky bay jetty, off the right side as you look out to sea. They were lineing up to get on the jig. See ya later."

Streaky Bay is in South Australia and from what I know is good for all sorts of fishing apart from that I cant tell you much more.

I was reliably told that Victoria is "The Squid State", in fact I'm pretty sure there will be a new slogan on our number plates soon saying just that ;-)

A beach 11ks from there called Waitpinga is great for salmon. Pilchards are the best bait but lures work very well to.

i popped down there for a couple of hours from around 10am.
it is an awesome spot!
i saw other guys catching much larger squid (say 2.5kg or so) while i was there. its quite a high jetty so you need a special net-on-a-rope-thing to land the squid.
best of luck,

These two spots can be quite windy at times because they are open areas where as the Bluff has a big hill behind it to stop the southerly winds.

Rapid bay jetty used to be very big. It was a jetty used a while ago for large ships to dock and recieve granite and other materials. It is now not used by the ships and some parts have been removed. It was once T- shaped. It waters are very deep and used a lot by divers.
It was in danger of being closed because of vandals damaging the conveyors used for the ships and general damage to the jetty. But I do not believe it has been closed yet. That would be a shame. It is a great fishing spot.

To get back to your original question, Streaky Bay is on SA far west coast about 800 ks from Adelaide - 110 km southeast of Ceduna.
The jetty is famous for squid, among other things, my dad caught a 35lb snapper from the jetty many years ago.
I am at present in Streaky on holidays, was meant to leave today but the wind is too strong for comfort towing a caravan.
I went to the jetty last evening and caught two just on dusk which was a good result for just now as (according to locals) the tides and wind has been wrong.
I was talking to a pro whiting fisherman who catches his own squid for bait yesterday, he can regularly go into the bay by boat and catch 40 - 50 kg in a afternoon, so there are heaps about.
I hope this answers your question Glen

AS for cape jervis - 10x better than rapid bay and the bluff - our average sized squid from here is 1kg, and our biggest is 3kg! Great spot in october..............Fish from the jetty, or in a boat (can be a small boat) from just out the end of the breakwater - unweighted pillies can get you salmon in the same spot!
Heading to the bluff and waitpinga saturday night!!
This special net on a rope thing - We Call them a CRAB NET!! LOL!!
And yes they are something which is definitely required when fishing for squid in our great state - i always take a crab net or a landing net - have lost too many squid due to the line breaking.............

No squid would touch the baited jigs but going spazo on prawn style lures.
Colour made no difference they attacked every colour we had and we had every colour under the sun.
It was a sunny but very cold day with no wind. Around sunrise was the best time.
