This coral trout was caught on the Keely Rose during a TCB Fishing Club day out

Club members and visitors recently enjoyed an outing with Keely Rose Fishing Charters in the waters east of Fraser Island and Double Island Point. All enjoyed a great day out and fish caught included sweetlip, parrot, Moses perch, trevally, cobia and one of our visitors landed a prized coral trout. We thank the Keely Rose crew, Ed and Harry for looking after everyone on the day out.

An early bout of warm spring weather has resulted in some good catches of Giant and Golden trevally in the Tin Can Bay Inlet and the surrounding waters from Snapper Creek to Inskip Point.

During October, good numbers of tailor and dart have appeared along Inskip Point and off Fraser Island and best results have been obtained using pilchards, metal lures and squid.

In the TCB Inlet and inside waters, there have been some nice sized whiting caught near the banks around Alligator and Kauri Creek and the best results have been obtained using live beach worms and yabbies. There have also been some good quality flathead and tailor caught using pilchards with gang hooks near Carlo Point and Kauri Creek.

Mangrove Jack and large slatey bream are also being landed and the best results have been obtained using live baits and casting against structure in the creeks and around the mangroves.

An information and Club social day was recently held at the Clubhouse during which members received information on best rigs and baits to use in the inside waters. There were 41 members present who enjoyed the fun and the chance to win some great raffle prizes.

The Club would like to thank Emma and Chris from the Tin Can Bay Chandlery for their continued sponsorship and support that they provide to our club and for helping to make the day a very successful and enjoyable one for all present.
