Look guys, fishing does not always mean that you will catch big fish to display on the forum.The ground reality is that sometimes things don't turn out that way, especially in a new location where the weather and lack of local knowledge will be to one's detriment. This is what happened on this trip and we thought that if we took a charter boat we would be able to catch the red snapper ,and the King George whiting,that Kangaroo Island is famous for.

It didn't quite turn out like that...first of all the red snapper season was closed and we missed it by two days,so that was out. Secondly, the King George whiting were there (these are about 3x the size of a normal whiting) but we could not catch any big ones.

The reason is that the charter boat was confined to calm waters,of the American River (actually a bay),because of its size and these grounds have been heavily fished leaving only small tiddlers for us to catch.

However, because these species are quite different from what you may see in India we will put them on the forum.



This is the charter boat suitable for two people fishing at the same time. This suited us perfectly.


Salmon trout - smaller version of the Australian salmon that I will write about later, caught while trolling.




The most successful lure of the day - it is a River to Sea shallow diver that I purchased for a few bucks from the sale bin at the tackle shop.


This is a razor fish - this will cut your feet up very badly if you walk barefoot on the mudflats - it is beautiful eating (just like scallops) but the skipper used to smash the sides of the shell and toss it overboard as berley.


This is called a black fish - larger sizes of these make good eating after the black internal skin is removed


Snook - what an aggressive fish, it hit the lures and flew into the air and was tremendous fun!




Red mullet - larger sizes of these are prized eating for the Italians.


The skipper of the boat had trained the wild gulls to be hand-fed upon his return to the jetty.




These are the only fish kept by us although we must have caught at least 30 to 40. The top 3 snook went to the skipper and the bottom 4 whiting went to our stomachs!


We certainly hope to go back to Kangaroo Island again and make up for the lack of big fish, which managed to evade us this time.
