Still pesky northerly’s but easing back a little, but still choppy sea breeze conditions later in the day with a northerly 10 to 15 knots tending north to northeasterly 15 to 20 knots during the afternoon, then north to northwest 10 to 15 knots in the late evening and seas around 1 metre, increasing to 1.5 metres by early evening. Tomorrow, there’ll be a cool change coming through late in the day, but expect choppy conditions most of the day particularly out wide with northwesterly 15 to 20 knots changing south to southeasterly about 20 knots during the evening and seas 1 to 2 metres, decreasing below 1 metre during the afternoon or evening. Get ready for Spanish Mackerel which are starting to feed on local reefs. Trekka 2  fished North Reef for moses perch, Maori cod, pearlies and this nice Spanish on the troll.
