Beach conditions improving around Tin Can Bay

Only a week left until the start of the 2015 Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Classic & over the next few days we should start to see what the forecast will look like for the event.

Fingers crossed that like last year we will be blessed with great conditions.

With the wind & rain about over the last week there has been limited fishing activity with only a handful of reports of trevally & queenfish in Snapper Creek around the bottom of the tide.

Diver whiting & squid in the usual haunts between Norman Point & Crab Creek.  Tailor & school mackerel around Big Mick & around the mouth of Carlo & Teebar Creeks.

With the forecast set for a couple of possible showers Sunday is currently looking to be the pick of the days with light wind around 5 -10knots from the south east.

When the wind drops away try for Flathead around the mouth of Myers & Alligator Creeks or whiting around Ida Island.

There have been a few nice gutters forming along the beach north of Rainbow Shores that will be worth a try for Tailor around sunrise & sunset.

Beach conditions are improving daily & from last report safe access to Double Island is once again possible from Rainbow Beach a couple of hours either side of the low tide.

Even though the water temperatures is dropping there has still been a few nice mud crabs being caught so it’s worthwhile soaking a few pots whilst you’re on the water.

If you’re looking to snare a bargain on a new beach rod drop by our stall at the Twilight Fishing Expo at this year’s Rainbow Beach Fishing Classic.

We will have some great deals on Gary Howard surf rods as well as Fin Nor & Alvey reels.

Don’t forget we are offering a daily bait delivery service to the comp weigh ins.

If you would like a copy of our bait list drop us an email or alternatively download a copy from

Until next week have a great weekend & stay safe on the water.
