Members have reported catches of cod, summer whiting, flathead and mud crabs. We have received reports that bass are being caught at Borumba and Boondoomba Dams. There are also good catches of red claw being caught at both dams.
Our club supports the Gympie Regional Council’s proposed jetty at Norman Point which will provide an excellent facility for our community, for families, for children of all ages and for our visitors to really enjoy.
During the past year, the club has received many positive comments from community members supporting the jetty and the huge benefit that it will deliver to our region.
We are looking forward to being involved with the Maroochydore RSL Fishing Club during their visit to Tin Can Bay during February, and we will also be hosting the Sunfish Junior Fishing Day in April. Juniors who would like to participate in this event will be required to register by contacting the secretary.
