Forecast a welcome change for Tin Can Bay

As the end of another working week draws near you can be forgiven for shifting your attention to more pressing matters such as this weekend’s fishing plans…..
The current forecast for the weekend is a welcome change around Tin Can Bay after the run of rather average weather we have had over the last couple of weeks although still not ideal conditions. Light wind early around 5 knots early Friday morning before increasing mid morning to around 10 knots from the SW.
Hitting the water early Saturday morning will be the best bet as we approach the neap tides the run should start to decrease & will make areas such as Bluff Reef fishable however be prepared to make your way back to more sheltered waters by mid morning as the wind is set to increase to around 10-15 knots from the south.
On the fishing scene it has been a little quiet this week with only a handful of reports. Diver whiting, flathead & squid are coming from around Norman Point & the mouth of Carlo Creek.
Try for chopper tailor & bream around Bird Rock in Teebar Creek or flathead around the drop offs into the channel.
The beach is another option if you’re looking to escape the wind try around Inskip Point for dart, whiting & flathead. If you’re thinking of heading south to Double Island best to plan to take the Freshwater track as recent weather has left Mudlo Rocks exposed & access around the rocks is limited.
Only 2 weeks until the start of the 2015 Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Classic from 3rd to the 11th of July. For more details check out
