With showers forecast for the weekend Saturday still looks to be the pick of the days to hit the water with winds set to be less than 5 knots for most of the day. We are getting reports of Mackerel & a few squid around Teebar Ledge. Closer to Tin Can Bay a 111cm Queenfish weighing approx 11kg was taken by one local angler last weekend fishing the drop off’s around the eastern side of the bay. Large schools of herring have started moving into the bay & with them should hopefully come a few larger predators. Mangrove Jack action has slowed a little with the cooler days over the last week however those putting in the time are still finding a few nice fish. The odd Barramundi is also still lurking about however from the 1st of November to the 1st of February Barra are off limits along the east coast of QLD. If you do manage to hook up to one by accident please ensure it is released unharmed ASAP.
