Episode 43: Andrew Wright 

This week we come to you from the deck at Streaky Bay to discuss our stay on the Eyre Peninsula so far. Shark cage diving, exploring the Port Lincoln National Park, whiting fishing at Streaky Bay, Great seafood and exploring the local regions have made for a great trip so far. 

We are joined by Andrew Wright, who is the General Manager of Calypso Star Charters who took us out to the North Neptune Island, where we were lucky enough to dive with a number of Great White Sharks. Andrew tells us about the business, the region, and the growth in shark cage diving over the years, as well as talking about his own fishing and boating experiences.

As always, we also talk about the big news items in SA fishing, including the opening up of Snapper fishing in the South East, Seal drama in the Coorong and tell you where the fish are biting. We also give a report on our own fishing around Streaky Bay so far and feature a local Eyre Peninsula product, the original ‘Tumbler’ Fish Scaling Bag as our tackle item of the week.
