Local Fishing Report: Thursday 2019-02-28

Offshore

Today's conditions are still choppy but have settled down a lot, with winds east to southeasterly 15 to 20 knots, seas 1 to 1.5 metres and swells easterly 1.5 metres. Tomorrow and probably right through into next week will be similar, with choppy conditions with winds tomorrow, southeasterly 15 to 20 knots, with seas 1 to 1.5 metres, increasing to 1 to 2 metres offshore and swells easterly 1 to 1.5 metres inshore, increasing to 2 metres offshore. So, probably best to stay in port, until things settle right down maybe next week and looking like, at least until after Monday.
