Well I’ll be! The weatherman got it right this time for Tin Can Bay. The heavy rain & wind we had late last week was a distant memory by Saturday morning with clear blue skies & light winds. Best of all it’s been the same all week & set to continue for a few more days yet.
Whilst the rain did wreak a little havoc on the water clarity it certainly didn’t slow down the fishing with reports of diver whiting in good numbers throughout the bay. A mix of squid, yabbies, beach worms & even the Gulp 2”Sandworms performing well with most reports of people bagging out on fish in the mid 20’s.
The flush of fresh water has also stirred things up with the crabs with reports of muddies being caught not only in the creeks but also around the sand flats.
We continue to receive reports of plenty of flathead being caught at present with areas such as the mouth of Alligator, Meyers & Teebar worth a try.
The beaches are fishing well at the moment with dart, whiting & flathead coming from the surf gutters around Teewah, Double Island & Rainbow. Whilst we haven’t yet received any reports of tailor showing up they certainly can’t be too far away. Whilst beach conditions on the southern side of Double Island Point are great at present the Rainbow side is a little worse for wear following the large seas exposing the rocks in places. It may be worth considering taking the Freshwater track to access the beach.
Until next week have a great weekend & stay safe on the water.
