Mangrove Jack, Flathead, Sweetlip and Barra around Tin Can Bay

The weather for the past week has been a little hit and miss with the wind keeping people off the water however there has still been the odd glamour day thrown amongst it.

Reports are coming through of Mangrove Jack to 45cm in the creeks as well as some big flathead being taken around the flats.

As the full moon approaches this weekend will be a good time to get out in search of a few barramundi with only just over a week until the season closes on the 1st of November.  Creeks such as Teebar and Kauri will be worth a look as will Figtree on the western side of Fraser.

With wind forecast around 10-15knots from the ESE for Saturday it maybe a good idea to seek protection in creeks such as Carlo or around Bullock Point.

There have been plenty of crabs about lately so make sure you pack a few pots.

Offshore has been a little bit of a wash out due to the wind however before it picked up there was plenty of pelagic activity around Double Island Point and the close in reefs were fishing well for snapper, parrot, Moses perch and sweetlip.
