Tin Can Bay Fishing Club News

Members have reported good catches of diver whiting and bream in the inlet and creeks ,as well as good-sized summer whiting being caught in small numbers. There have also been small catches of sweetlip, flathead and flounder in the Sandy Straits and Bluff Reef areas.

We recently hosted the Wondai Amateur Fishing Club and members took them out to various locations for a day’s fishing. They also had a day fishing outside with Baitrunner Fishing Charters and caught a variety of fish including parrot, squire, pearl perch, slatey bream, trag jew and cod.

Members who have been fishing the Mary River at Gympie have been catching bass, saratoga and yellow belly.

Everyone enjoyed the BBQ at the Tin Can Bay Tourist Park after the day’s fishing and Cr Mark McDonald attended and welcomed all the Wondai visitors to Tin Can Bay. Cr McDonald also spoke about the attractions that our area has to offer to visitors and gave an update on the proposed Tin Can Bay Jetty.

Winner of the Club’s August Mini Fishing Competition was Marquis Chapman who caught a 45cm  yellow belly in the Mary River.

The next club General Meeting will be held on Wednesday October 11 at the TCB Country Club commencing at 5pm. The Club’s Annual General Meeting will be held immediately following the General Meeting.
