Local Fishing Report: Wednesday 2020-03-18

Offshore: Today's winds and seas will ease back a fair bit but still keep you in sheltered waters with winds southeasterly 15 to 20 knots with seas 1.5 to 2 metres. Tomorrows conditions will be the best we have for over a week or so be ready to fish, with winds south to southeasterly 10 to 15 knots, reaching up to 20 knots offshore in the morning and seas 1 to 1.5 metres. As conditions improve be ready to go for a few mackerel and quality reef fish in Sunshine Coast waters.
