Rain Flushes Crabs and Prawns into Tin Can Bay

Between wind and rain over the past few weeks there has been very little activity to report.  Upside is Saturday is looking to be a cracker with light winds forecast along with  the chance of a few showers.

This is looking like the best window of opportunity we have had for a few weeks to get out and wet a line.  All the rain of late will no doubt have flushed the crabs and prawns out of the creeks.  If your going to soak a few pots over the weekend try working around the lower reachers of the creeks or around the mouth.

If you find the prawns the Barra, jacks and Threadies shouldn’t be too far away and the next few days in the lead up to the full moon should provide perfect conditions.

If your after a feed of whiting then try a little further up the straits around Ida Island, Tinnanbar and the mouth of Kauri creek.  As always baits of live yabbies or worms will produce the best results or try mixing it up by working small surface lures.

Until next week stay safe on the water.
