Hot & Humid at Tin Can Bay

The hot and humid conditions over the past week have finally let loose some much needed rain and along with it a slightly cooler change.

At this stage the current forecast is still looking at a chance of some more showers and storms over the weekend however this should be enough to stop most people from getting out on the water.


The past week has seen yet again some nice mangrove Jack being caught along with some monster flathead. With high tides early morning and late afternoon this weekend will be a great time to head up the upper reaches of creeks such as Carlo, Teebar and Kauri in search of a few Red Devils with Grunter and Threadies also on the cards.

The rock ledges throughout the way have been fishing fairly well of late with some nice size sweetlip to 5kg being caught. With the smaller tides this weekend it will be well worth a crack. Baits of squid and yabbies working well.

Reports of whiting and flathead around the foreshore of both Tin Can Bay and Poona over the last week. Hard bodies and plastics are working well as is baits of worms or live yabbies.

With the new moon approaching we should hopefully start to see some spotty mackerel showing up in the bay. It will be worth a try floating unweighted Phillies around Big Mick or the channel between Inskip Point and Fraser Island.

Looking at the forecast for the weekend it looks like the best opportunity to fish the open waters of the bay will be early Sunday morning before the wind picks up to a little over 10knots.

If your looking for something different to do this weekend the Mary Valley Fishing Classic is being held at Borumba Dam and will make for a great weekend away for the family.

Until next week stay safe on the water.
