By Tin Can Bay Fishing Club
The variable weather conditions have been challenging at times, but members are enjoying themselves, landing a few squid and having some relaxation and fun.
There have been some quality fish caught recently including flathead, cod, trevally, slatey bream, as well as a quality Red Emperor from over the bar, submitted by a few of our members during the May mini comp.
The Club fishing days, in conjunction with the recent visit by 60 members of the Hervey Bay Fishing Club to Tin Can Bay, was enjoyed by members of both clubs.
The interaction with the visitors was excellent with club members attending both social evenings at the Tin Can Bay Tourist Park. The final weigh-in and trophy presentation for their competition was held at lunchtime on Sunday.
Their members managed to catch a few fish and good numbers of squid. Their highest point scoring fish was a Golden Trevally which was caught by one of their members who was fishing with Derek Andrews.
TCB Fishing Club members are looking forward to visiting Hervey Bay to continue the friendship and interaction between our respective clubs.
Club Activities planned for June include assisting the TCB Dragon Boat Club during their Regatta and the welcoming of Costa Georgiadis, host of ABC Gardening Australia, for a July fundraising event at TCB to assist other local volunteer groups. Costa will also be visiting schools at Gympie during his visit.
The Tin Can Bay School recently requested our members to attend and provide an introduction to fishing to their younger students. The students enjoyed learning to tie knots and casting a line and a very good time was held by all. The TCB School thanked the club and its members for assisting during the morning.
New club members are very welcome and for all enquiries, please contact the Club Secretary, Debbie on 0437 242 171.
