Local Fishing Report: Thursday 2018-03-22

Offshore

Best to stay in port today, with winds southeasterly 20 to 25 knots turning easterly in the evening, with seas 1.5 to 2.5 metres. Tomorrows conditions will also be similar  with winds east to southeasterly 15 to 25 knots and seas 1.5 to 2 metres. Conditions will improve during the weekend, maybe Saturday afternoon, particularly Sunday and of course Monday, ready for back to work, so get prepared to wait it out before you can chase a few tuna, mackerel, other pelagic and some good reef fish that are  feeding along the coast.
