Tin Can Bay fishing well

Easter school holidays are almost over for another year & in true form the final day is looking to be spectacular. Over the past week Snapper Creek has been firing well with catches of Diamond & Golden trevally. The pike have shown up in numbers with the jetty at Norman Point being a popular spot to target them. Best time is usually around the top of the tide as the run begins to slow. Small hard bodies & soft plastics around two inches long will often give the best results. Pike make great live baits for big cod & also provide for a lot of fun on light gear especially if you are trying to teach kids how to use plastics for the first time.
In the bay we have reports of Longtail tuna & mackerel smashing bait schools are the wide bay bar. The chopper tailor are starting to show up & over the next few weeks we should see their numbers increase. Try working around the mouth of creeks such as Snapper, Carlo & Teebar. Hard bodied lures, chrome slugs or floating a pillie will all give the desired result.
There has been a number of good flathead being caught lately. Walking the sand flats flicking lures around the end of the run out & start of the run in tide is a great way to pick up a feed of flathead.
The forecast for the weekend is looking great with light winds early Saturday morning before increasing mid morning to around 10knots before dropping away again around dark. Sunday is looking to be a cracker with light wind less than 5 knots all day. The forecast is tipping some showers however these are more than likely to be concentrated around Fraser Island.
Until next week have a great weekend & stay safe on the water.
