Snapper Season in South Australia 2019 – What to Expect?

South Australia is at its best during the Snapper Season. You have more than 300,000 people, or 1 in six South Australians, going out fishing during these months – mums, dads, kids, they are all in it. Families that fish together, stay together, as we like to say here.

Below is a Video of us out fishing when we encounter a white shark of the cost of South Australia. we originally fly out from Melbourne to try and catch a beast of a snapper, but got something far better, a real-life sighting of a great white shark!!! sit back and relax watch the event unfold.

When Does the Snapper Season Start in South Australia?

The Snapper Season in South Australia gets underway in October and lasts through the end of April. The season reaches its peak during Christmas and the Holiday Season.

Fishing Is very important to South Australia; so many local communities and small businesses depend on it. It is one of the biggest generators of employment here, and one of the prime drivers of tourism in the state.

Where to Find Snappers in South Australia?

There are so many great fishing spots in South Australia. SA is famous for having some of Australia’s finest whiting, snapper, and mulloway. There is nothing unusual about finding Snappers here that weigh 13.5 kilos or more.
There are many great fishing grounds here, where you’re likely to find plenty of Snappers – St. Kilda, one of Adelaide’s lesser-known fishing spots, is always packed with Snappers at this time of the year.
Rapid Bay at Fleurieu Peninsula is also pretty good. A new jetty has been built there primarily for recreational fishers.
We also like Cape Willoughby and Cape Hart, which have large Snapper schools passing by at this time of the year. Also worth visiting is the NORA Creina Bay, just off the Limestone Coast.

PortHughes at the Eastern Spencer Gulf, Port Wakefield ay the Northern Gulf St Vincent, Coles Point on the West Coast and Fowlers Bay on the Far West Coast are the other fishing grounds we like; where you’re going to find a lot of success.
