Tin Can Inlet starting to clean up

Apparently we are now in autumn however someone appears to have forgotten to tell that to summer as it’s been a pretty hot & muggy week with temps in the 30’s.

Well two weeks after cyclone Marcia dumped heavy rain on SEQ Tin Can Inlet is starting to clean up although there is still some dirty water around.

There have been plenty of schools of herring in the bay for the past week with the public jetty’s in Carlo & Snapper Creeks being a great base to throw a cast net or use a herring jig.

Squid are active around Norman Point at present & we should see them hanging around for the next few months.

Estuary cod, mangrove jack & flathead have all been reported to have been coming from the creeks along with good catches of mud crabs.

Offshore the close in reefs are fishing well for Pearl Perch, Hussar, Cobia & Moses Perch.

Beach travel from Rainbow south to Double Island Point is a little tricky at present with recent storms exposing plenty of rocks.

Although possible to navigate the rocks at dead low tide it is best to take the alternative route via the Freshwater Track as Mudlo rocks have claimed 3 vehicles in the past week or so.

We have a couple of great promotions going in store at present including giving away a $1300 Shimano Stella/Anarchy combo.

Check out our facebook page for more details.

After an almost 12 month absence from the market Cranka Crabs are on their way!

These little crabs have quickly gained a reputation as bream slayers & are highly sort after.  With limited stocks available in the first shipment don’t delay in claiming your colour preference.

Did you know that we can also do rod repairs in store?

Our rod lathe has a huge 16ft bed meaning we can tackle event the largest of surf rods.

Don’t forget we are open from 6am daily for all your boat hire, bait & tackle needs.

Have a great weekend.
