At long last a good forecast for the weekend

At long last we have a reasonable forecast for the weekend ahead. Light winds early mornings & late afternoon will make for the ideal conditions for hitting the water. With wind expected to reach 10-15knots through the middle of the day it makes sense to get out while it is cool to avoid the heatwave that is predicted to hit over the coming days.

On the fishing scene there has been some good hauls of mud crabs from the creeks. Recommend trying areas such as Teebar, Carlo & Crab Creeks. For those without a boat low tides late afternoon & early morning will provide you an opportunity walk your pots out on the flats before dark & check them again at first light.
The shallow reefs around Tin Can Bay have been a little hit & miss over the past week with a few reports of undersize squire, sweetlip & cod.

If you’re looking for a feed of flathead try around Ida Island or Alligator Creek.
There has been a few nice Golden & Diamond Trevally being caught around Norman Point & in Snapper Creek. Lightly weighted baits of prawn or live herring which have been in abundance of late.

This Sunday is the Pirtek Fishing Challenge if you haven’t already entered jump on over to their website https://pirtekfishingchallenge.com.au for only $20 to enter you will get a chance to share in over $169,000 in prizes with proceeds going to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia this is a great cause to support.
Until next week be safe on the water.
