The past week has seen some fairly average weather and despite the forecast for strong winds Australia Day turned out to have been a cracker of a day.
On the fishing scene good numbers of mangrove jack are being caught with most of the fish being caught after dark.
Schools of golden trevally have been sighted at the entrance to creeks such as Teebar and Alligator feeding on with schools of hardy heads and herring.
If you’re after a feed of flathead try walking the sand flats on the run out tide. Both shallow diving hard bodied lures and soft plastics have been producing good results.
Looking at the forecast for the weekend it is looking like early morning or late afternoon sessions will be best with light wind forecast around 2-5knots before picking up around mid morning to around 10-15knots then dropping away again late afternoon/early evening. With this in mind try fishing the shallow reefs around Tin Can Bay for squire, sweetlip and parrot. Alternatively with high tides falling around mid morning to early evening try heading up the creeks in search of a few mangrove jack.
Don’t forget we are open from 6am daily for all your boat hire, bait and tackle needs.
Have a great weekend.
