Good fishing at Cooloola Coast April 1, 2013

Fishing Report Tin Can Bay 01/04/2013.

Apologies for the late update the lead up to Easter was hectic!  The past week has seen some great weather & the conditions on the bay have been postcard perfect.

On the fishing front some quality Squire have been taken around the shallow reefs around Tin Can Bay along with some decent size Blackall & Cod.  The Yakka’s are starting to school up around Big Mick so it is only a matter of time before we should see a couple of Mackerel show up again.

Teebar Ledge has been fishing well for Bream & Moses Perch.  Reports are starting to filter through of a few Chopper Tailor in the Bay so give it a few weeks & we should hopefully see them start schooling up in good numbers.  These guys are great fun to target with hard bodied lures.

The weather for the week ahead looks promising with only a few possible showers & light winds less than 10 knots every day except for Friday afternoon when the wind is expected to increase to 12-13 knots.  Early morning low tides should provide a few options for targeting Flathead around the drop offs.  Towards the end of the week as the high tides will be around 4-5am this should be a good time to hit the shallow reefs on day break for your chance at a few Squire with Pillies & Squid working well as bait & also responding to soft plastics.  They do put up a great fight on light gear so why not leave the heavy rods at home & try using your Bream or Flathead gear!


We are also happy to announce both the arrival of our latest vessel the 3.70m Saxon Poly boat powered by a 6hp Yamaha four stroke outboard as well as our new range of bait & tackle to help better serve our hire customers.  Another report should follow in a few days so until next time stay safe on the water.
