Diver whiting in Tin Can Bay

Well its official winter is here & at the time of writing this it’s a chilly 4 degrees in lovely Tin Can Bay.  For those of you who are lucky enough to score the long weekend it looks like we will be in for a fine weather with only a chance of possible showers on Sunday & Monday around 1-5mm.  The cold snap is only set to hang around a couple of days with it set to warm up again on Sunday.

Diver whiting are still being caught in reasonable numbers between Norman Point & Crab creek with worms, squid & yabbies working well for bait with the squid also being active in the same area.

There has been a few nice golden trevally being caught over the last few weeks with the bigger models falling to live baits of gar & whiting whilst the smaller ones have been happy to smash prawns.  Try around the drop off at Norman Point or behind Lee’s Fisheries in Snapper Creek.

Mackerel have been smashing bait schools between Inskip & Fraser with a mix of school & spotties amongst them.

Looking at the current forecast the wind is set to start picking up around mid morning on Friday to 5-10 knots from the SW and Saturday looks to be much the same before increasing on Sunday to 10-15knots from the SE.

Given the current forecast the best option for Sunday will be to hit the Rainbow Beach at day break in search of a few tailor & bream.

The countdown is one with only 4 weeks until the start of the 2015 Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Classic from 3rd to the 11th of July.  For more details check out http://www.rainbowsportsclub.com.au/fishing-comp-registrations/

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