Local Fishing Report: Saturday 2019-06-29

Offshore With an increasing swell this weekend, it would be far safer to avoid coastal bar crossing and offshore waters. Winds will be East to southeasterly at 15 to 20 knots decreasing to 10 to 15 knots during the afternoon today. Seas will be 1 to 2 metres, decreasing to 1 to 1.5 metres during the afternoon, with East to southeasterly swell at 2 to 2.5 metres. Although the wind will drop out to 10 knots on Sunday, we can expect an increase in the offshore swell of 2.5 to 4m.
