Josh Carty got a 125cm spaniard off the beach fishing for tailor. Got bloody hectic on 20lb leader but once she was on the beach Josh was stoked to say the least.

Mackerel around Tin Can Bay

At long last we have a good forecast for the weekend ahead with light winds around 5 knots for the majority of the time before increasing 5-10knots Sunday afternoon.

Whilst last weekend was a fizzer with strong wind & rain mid week has been great with a number of reports of diver whiting, golden trevally & squid coming from around Norman Point.

With the trevally falling to live baits of whiting or gar & the whiting falling to worms & squid.

We have also had several unconfirmed reports of spotty & school mackerel coming from around Inskip Point.

Looking at the weekend ahead with the current forecast recommend trying around Big Mick & the channel between Inskip & Fraser for mackerel.

Norman Point for diver whiting & squid or try working the mouth of creeks such as Teebar & Carlo for chopper tailor & school mackerel.

With only a few weeks left until the 2015 Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Classic you still have time to get your entries in by visiting

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