Tin Can Bay boaties buzzing

As another working week is set to wrap up its time to start planning your weekends fishing adventures.

We had some fantastic weather last Sunday for fathers and the waters around Tin Can Bay were buzzing with boat traffic.  We have had a number of reports of the last week of good whiting and flathead throughout the bay with some cracking whiting around 40cm falling to surface lures in Kauri creek.

As the days continue to warm up we should start to see an increase in mangrove jack activity and there has already been the odd reports of a few being caught. Inskip Point is fishing well at present with dart and tailor on the menu.  For best results fish the low light periods around dawn and dusk then into the night for the bigger greenbacks.

On the freshwater scene the Mary River in Gympie has been firing this week with bass, Saratoga and sooty grunter being caught.  If you haven’t already done so jump on over to the Gympie Regional Council and check out the draft kayak and canoe strategy that has been released.  The council is looking for ways to open up the area to more water based activities in the region which is great to see.

Looking at the forecast for the weekend it is looking a little windy on Saturday around 10-15 knots before dropping away over night to what should be a nice day on Sunday.  Light showers have been forecast all weekend tipping falls around 1-5mm.  At this stage they are tipping the Mercury to hit 30 degrees next Wednesday so this will be a prime time to hit the water looking for a few mangrove jack.

Have a great weekend and stay safe on the water.
