September is a beautiful time of year to visit Tin Can Bay and its surrounding regions. Whether you are into fishing, sailing, bird watching, feeding a dolphin, going for a 4WD on one of the beautiful beaches or popping over to Fraser for a day trip or an extended stay. The Cooloola Coast has got you covered these holidays.
Fishing in the Bay during September can be red hot!! The flathead start to become more active as they get into breeding mode and are a great bread and butter species to target.
Summer whiting should start to fire up also and can be targeted on the flood tide fishing with live yabbies or our locally caught beach worms. There is still a heap of squid to be caught and fishing the deeper water around the Carlo leads should see you catch a feed.
Mangrove Jack start to become more of a viable option for fishos and when the water temp starts to heat up the Jack fishing here can be explosive.
With the warm water, Barramundi become a more common catch also. But you will need to target them solely if you want to bag a TCB Barra. If you want a bit of local knowledge pop into the shop and the team will be more than happy to point you in the right direction.
If fishing isn’t your thing, why not take a walk along the picturesque foreshore that has a bike/walking path all the way from Norman Point down to Crab Creek. Nice and safe for the kids to burn off some energy on their bikes.
There is an array of bird life to keep you interested and dotted along the path you will find informational placards to help you ID your feather friends and the flora they inhabit. Or at low tide why not walk along the sand flats and chase the Soldier Crab.
