Weather during the past few weeks has not been favourable and resulted in fewer members venturing out. We have received reports of catches of diver whiting, flathead and mud crabs in the creeks and inlet areas.
Our club members have responded and assisted other local organisations with a number of events and activities that were held during July.
We assisted the Tin Can Bay Dragon Boat Club by running the BBQ during the Regatta at Snapper Creek Club and members were very pleased to have 29 school students participate in the fishing fun activity during the school holidays at Norman Point. The cooler weather did not deter or dampen the enthusiasm of any of the students and a few whiting were caught by them during the morning.
The windy conditions gave other students the opportunity to try their hand at kite flying, and everyone enjoyed the tasty fish and chips and salad luncheon following the morning’s activities.
Tin Can Bay Fishing Club members were pleased to be involved with the Cooloola Coast Youth Activity Project and thank Ian Webb, George Parkyn and Chuck Boucher for their assistance during the morning.
The Club’s next General Meeting will be held at 10am on Sunday, August 14 at the club premises, 33 Dolphin Avenue, Tin Can Bay. For membership enquiries please phone 0437 242 171.
