Wow 2013 already!!!! The waters around Tin Can Bay & the Sandy Straits have been extremely busy during the Christmas period with most days the car parks at the boat ramp being full to capacity & boat trailers parked everywhere!
Despite the extra traffic on the water fishing has been steady with reports of Bream, Moses Perch & Flathead in Snapper Creek. Mangrove Jack are still coming from the creeks like Teebar, Dinnies & Kauri with the added bonus of the odd Threadfin Salmon. Mud crabs have been in good numbers for those who have taken their time to set a few pots but as usual around holiday time they are still getting raided. The weather for the next week or so looks to be a little average with SE winds to 10 knots chopping up the bay. For those wanting to get out for a fish try heading up creeks like Snapper, Teebar or Kauri or otherwise get out early morning before the wind gets up & try places like Big Mick or Bluff Reef. There has been a few decent fish about on one recent trip to Big Mick I got cleaned up after about a 5 min fight I was bitten off using 80 pound leader.
Please share photo’s of your holiday catches on our facebook page or email them to email@example.com they could even end up in our area article in Bush n Beach!
Tight lines & be safe on the water.
