Local Fishing Report: Wednesday 2019-03-06


After what we have been through the past few weeks, today's conditions are looking pretty good and will be a short window of opportunity for offshore until more good conditions over the weekend with winds southeasterly 10 to 15 knots turning southeast to northeasterly about 10 knots in the morning. Winds then turning northeasterly about 10 knots in the evening and seas around 1 metre. Conditions will become choppy again later today with winds north to northwesterly 10 to 15 knots shifting southeasterly 15 to 20 knots during the morning with seas below 1 metre, increasing to 1 to 2 metres during the afternoon. Looking like choppy conditions on Friday.
