 Saw it this morning, wouldn't leave the marina to fish in a small boat. Water is super dirty and a fair swell even inside the reef

You can see the ocean yourself online!

If you see any kind if white water on this pic from Swanbourne then it's not a good idea

Conditions

 The picture that Zoom put up is such an understatement of conditions today. Was driving along West Coast hwy today and water was not ideal for boating. Big white caps everywhere.  Alot of seals though, I mean surfers...

 I was going to head out tomorrow but the swells still up a bit, so Friday has been pencilled in.
