If you are planning to go fishing over the holidays or long weekend, beware hotspots will be monitored.

The State Government says popular fishing areas will be patrolled by Fisheries Officers who will issue fines and seize gear for those caught doing the wrong thing.

To understand the rules, you can call a 24-hour hotline on 1800 065 522, use a free smartphone app "recfishingapp", or you can receive immediate information on a specific fish if you text the fish name to 0427 767 995.

Illegal or suspicious fishing behaviour can be reported via the SA Recreational Fishing Guide smartphone app, or to the 24-hour FISHWATCH number.
