Tin Can Bay Fishing Club members being shown how to catch beach worms with local identity, Slippery Mick
Members enjoyed the recent trip to Rainbow Beach for a morning’s fishing despite the windy conditions and bigger seas. Best fish landed was a 60cm flathead whilst others caught a few dart and tailor.
Local worming expert, Slippery, showed members his technique and provided a lot of tips on how to catch beach worms. All present had a lot of fun trying to perfect the technique but not able to produce the results. We will be back for more practise in the near future and thank Slippery for his time and tuition.
Windy conditions during the past few weeks have limited the number of fishing trips. There have been reports of a few good size summer whiting being caught in some areas of the Sandy Straits, as well as a golden trevally and some bream.
Best catch for inside waters was a cod weighing 5.477 kg and a slatey bream weighing 2.23 kg.
Members are looking forward to participating in the Inter Club Fishing Competition that will be held at River Heads during early October.
