Spearfishing in Ardrossan Barge, Yorke Peninsula, South Australia Australia
This is the best spot for big snapper’s hunters for many years. There are also nice salmon around the end of the bulk loading jetty. Reds up to 15 kg/33 lb are caught here during the Christmas period each summer, as well as slimy mackerel, whiting and the occasional large mulloway.
Best times to visit the barge during the day are dusk and dawn. However big snappers can be caught throughout the night, particularly around tide changes. Spear-fishermen should keep an eye out for great white sharks, which are common visitors when the snapper run is at its peak. The spot is recommended for advanced practitioners.
