Fishing Report Tin Can Bay 01/03/2013

Another week of horrible weather & the weekend ahead doesn’t look to be getting any better!  Hopefully the end is in sight soon & we get some great weather for Easter Holidays in a month’s time.

As to be expected the fishing has been a little slow of late however there has still been catches of some nice Mangrove Jacks in the 40cm range along with Cod and the odd Barra.  Carlo Creek has yet again been the stand out this past week with some nice Grunter Bream or Javelin fish being caught as well as a few nice Bream.  We received another report today of a 60cm Barra being caught in a cast net whilst gathering live baits so don’t discount these areas as a place to wet a line & not just to gather bait before shooting up the creeks further away.

The Fishing for Flood Relief Appeal is on next weekend to help raise much needed funds for those affected by recent floods.  At only $20 to enter it is a worthwhile event that is spread over 3 days the 8th, 9th & 10th of March.  For details on how to sign up see the Fishing QLD website

Once again please feel free to share photos of your catch on the newly established Fishing Tin Can Bay facebook page or email them to

Good luck & see you on the water.
