Mixed results around Tin Can Bay

Yep its Nambour show long weekend & you guessed it….It’s set to be wet & windy! With the Queen’s Birthday long weekend last week turning out to be a bit of a fizzer due to wind it doesn’t look much better for the weekend ahead.
Current forecast is for 10-15 knot from Friday through to Sunday before dropping away on Monday to 5-10knots. It is also looking like we will be in for a few showers although current forecast is only tipping between 1-5mm each day.
Despite last weekend’s average weather there was still a few diehard fishos who got out to wet a line with mixed results.
Chopper tailor & school mackerel around Big Mick going for unweighed pilchards.
A few reports of good numbers of summer whiting being caught in Pelican Bay with worms & yabbies working best.
Closer to Tin Can Bay there has been diver whiting, squid, bar tail flathead & golden trevally being caught in the channel from Norman Point through to Crab Creek with worms, squid & yabbies being the best baits to use.
If you’re hitting the water this weekend try sticking to the creeks such as Snapper, Teebar Carlo & Kauri where you should be able to find some protection from the wind.
Alternatively try working the beach between Rainbow & Double Island Point for tailor, bream dart & whiting.
The countdown continues with only 3 weeks until the start of the 2015 Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Classic from 3rd to the 11th of July. For more details check out http://www.rainbowsportsclub.com.au/fishing-comp-registrations/
Until next week have a great weekend & stay safe on the water.
