Port Giles has long been one of SA’s most popular and reliable jetty fishing venues. The long bulk handling pier was built over existing snapper grounds and was a truly remarkable place to fish back in the 1960s and ‘70s.
The jetty is open to recreational fishers when there isn’t any shipping or maintenance activity. You can check access at www.portmis.flindersports.com.au. There is productive boat fishing for snapper and whiting to the north and south of the Port Giles jetty.
It’s just a short trip from the Edithburgh boat harbor in good weather and although the snapper action isn’t as consistent as it once was, there is still a chance of pulling a 20 pounder if your luck is in. Likewise, hauls of 40 centimetre-plus King George whiting are often made on the grounds about five kilometres south-east of the jetty.
