Tin Can Bay Fishing Report April 2016

Between wind and rain over the past few weeks there has been very little activity to report.  Mid-month, there was a cracker weekend with light winds forecast along with the chance of a few showers. It was the best window of opportunity we have had for a few weeks to get out and wet a line.

All the rain of late will no doubt have flushed the crabs and prawns out of the creeks. If you’re going to soak a few pots over the weekend try working around the lower reaches of the creeks or around the mouth.

If you find the prawns, the barra, jacks and threadies shouldn’t be too far away and the next few days in the lead up to the full moon should provide perfect conditions.

If you’re after a feed of whiting then try a little further up the straits around Ida Island, Tinnanbar and the mouth of Kauri creek.

As always baits of live yabbies or worms will produce the best results or try mixing it up by working small surface lures.

Until next month, stay safe on the water.
