JULY 2022 - GET THE JUICE FROM BRUCE
It’s a rarity in the tackle industry to find Australian made products, which is why we proudly stock the Platypus brand. Platypus has been making fishing line since 1898 and is still Australian owned and operated over 120 years later. They produce a wide variety of quality fishing line suitable for most types of fishing and suited to Australian conditions. They make everything from fluorocarbon to outrigger line, and even produce a shooting cord for spearfishing. After the demise of another well-known Australian company in Alvey, it’s important for us all to keep supporting Australian manufacturers and jobs. So, the next time you are in the market for new braid or nylon consider the quality of Aussie made Platypus.
Even though Winter conditons have been quite calm, the cold weather has certainly been off putting for fishing, but the die-hards have been rewarded with catches of Tommy Ruffs from the jetties at Cape Jervis, Rapid Bay and Second Valley with a few also claiming some Garfish.
Squidding from Wirrina rocks and Cape Jervis has been productive and the kayakers off Carrickalinga and Normanville have also managed a feed of squid. There are still a small number of Mullet being caught from the beaches, they are being a little hesitant to to bite so try putting a small amount of scent onto your bait. Salmon and Salmon Trout have been the most common catches for the beach anglers and whilst there have been a few from Carrickalinga Beach the majority have been taken from the Southern coastlines of Waitpinga and Parsons beaches. Boat crews are still finding nice sized King George Whiting even after the Blood Worm run in early July. Myponga Reservoir still has plenty of Redfin Perch, but they are holding in the deeper waters only accessible by kayakers. A few lucky kayakers have also managed to find some healthy Cod in the Resie using larger hard bodied lures.
