Fishing Report Tin Can Bay 31/01/2013
With the weather the region experienced over the past week reports of fish are few & far between. Before the rain Squire/Snapper were being caught on the shallow reefs around Tin Can Bay with reports of some fish around the 50cm mark. A few nice squid were also being caught around Norman Point.
There is huge amounts of fresh water in the bay at present which has almost shut down the fishing completely. Plenty of stingrays about that are quiet happy to take your baits & provide a little bit of fun in the process. Some legal Bream have been coming from Teebar Creek.
All this rain should hopefully flush out a few prawns from up the creeks so it could be worth throwing the cast net around dusk for a feed of prawns or to gather some fresh bait for chasing some Threadfin Salmon or Barramundi.
Upside is the closed season for Barra ends tomorrow (1st Feb) from midday so it’s time to dust off the Barra lures & start hitting your favourite spots. A couple of locals have reported catches Barra in Carlo Creek.
Hopefully over the next week we should see the water start clearing up a bit & a few more fish being caught. Until then be safe on the water.
