Lowly Point is a must see and fish near Whyalla.
Spent 6 days there to wait for the wind to fall, finally did on Saturday to allow us to go and fish. Undersize snapper (30cm) caught and released. Caught over a dozen of blue crabs (see photos).
Sunday, fishing, calm sea, Wendy caught her first big snapper.
Decided to stay Monday and try our luck again.

Lowly Point est un coin superbe pour la peche.  Camping gratuit au bord de mer avec douches (froides) et WC publics. Acces a une rampe dans un petit bassin pour mettre le bateau a l'eau.
Nous y avons passe 6 jours a attendre que le vent tombe.  Nous avons prepare le bateau et visite en attendant. 
Le Samedi nous sommes sortis pecher et attrapes beaucoup de snappers (genre de dorade) mais tous relaches (la limite est 30cm).  Nous avons mis des paniers et attrape plus d'une douzaine de crabes (limite 11cm de large) que nous avons mange le soir meme... et le lendemain (voir photos).
Dimanche, mer calme, Wendy a attrape un gros snapper. Nous avons decide de rester le Lundi, peche le matin et remonter le bateau l'apres midi.
