Reprieve From Wind at Tin Can Bay

This reprieve from the wind doesn’t look like it will last too long with it set to pick up again From Sunday to around 20knots from the south east.  For those wanting to get out, Saturday morning will be glamorous, with light winds from ESE between 5-10knots.  Hot humid conditions will also make for an ideal time to get out chasing a few jacks and Barra.

With the average conditions over the past week we haven’t heard many reports coming from Tin Can Bay although with the break in the weather of the next day or so these should hopefully start filtering through again over the weekend.

It will be worth a try fishing around the shallow reefs at first light with squire, sweetlip and cod.  Floating lightly weighted pilchards, squid or flesh baits will often produce the best results. The usual haunts for whiting of Ida Island, Pelican Bay and the mouth of Kauri will be worth a try.  Fresh live yabbies or beach worms will always give the best results.

If your after a feed of crabs try working around the mouth of the creeks such as Teebar, Carlo, Aligator & Kauri for muddies or try for sand crabs around Ida Island and Pelican Bay. If you’re planning a trip down the beach the rocks at Mudlo are currently impassable and you will need to use the freshwater track.  Another vehicle was lost to these rocks last Sunday.  Not only does this cause unnecessary cost to the vehicle owner it also causes damage to our local environment.

Until next week stay safe on the water.
