Offshore: Conditions will be a bit choppy today particularly out wide with winds, northerly 15 to 20 knots tending northwesterly early in the morning then tending northwest to northeasterly in the morning , with seas 1 to 2 metres Tomorrow will have great conditions, with winds north to northwesterly 10 to 15 knots turning east to northeasterly during the morning and seas below 1 metre. Cougar One skipper Nat Turner ran a nine hour charter to Double Island Point on Saturday. We had pretty good conditions with light northerly winds and little current run. The fishing was nothing short of exceptional. We bagged out on snapper in a few minutes while the pearl perch and goldband snapper stood out.
