Whiting and flathead at Tin Can Bay

The past week has seen a glimpse of spring around Tin Can Bay, with warmer days as well as some well deserved rain.  We have had reports of whiting and flathead from the sand flats around Tinnanbar and Poona with live yabbies and beach worms working best.

The offshore scene is fishing well with snapper, sweetlip, tuna and amberjack being caught.

Looking at the forecast for the weekend we can expect some rain on Saturday although with the light winds around 5 knots should make for ideal conditions for getting offshore.

With mid morning high tides it will be worth pushing up into the shallows over the flats to try flicking a few surface lures for whiting then work soft plastics for flathead towards the bottom of the tide.

Tailor are becoming more active on our local beaches with some ice gutters on the northern side of Rainbow Shores worth a try around dusk and dawn.

We have a great range of beach fishing gear in store and are open from 6am over the weekend.

Until next week stay safe on the water…
