You're in a good place there guppie12.. my old home state.. :a_goodjob:

1: Cowfish,,
2: Sand/silver whiting..
3 Salmon trout..
the bottom photo one is a salmon trout, small eye gives it away, tommies have a large eye....If you slide your finger from the tail towards the head of the fish you will feel the roughness of the scales, do the same with a salmon trout & it's smooth.. just another way of telling the difference.. Tommies are a great eating fish and were one of my favorite eating fish and a great Snapper bait as well.. :thumbsup:

cheers
Adrian..

Spot on Johnny just checked a couple of my old photos.. There's been some good bream & flathead taken off the breakwaters at North Haven over the past few weeks too.. Use to fish it on a regular basis when I lived there before moving South to Sellicks Beach..

The poor Tommy is in serious decline. You could once fill a bucket up from metro jetties but they are far more sparse these days.

It was the first fish I ever caught as a kid (65 yrs ago), off the Semaphore jetty.. I'm sure most kids in Sth Aust caught them on their first trip to one of the jetties as well, it's shame to see such a decline in them too.. :(

Sad to hear about the tommies. I also grew up in Adelaide and remember going on a school excursion as a kid to the screw pile jetty on granite island in victor harbour and catching triple headers each drop.
