Preston Beach

Thinking of hitting preston beach this saturday afternoon thru till sunday morning, we've fished there once before, but just want some advice as the swell is upto 3.7m sat afternoon/night coming down to 2.4m sunday morning going by willyweather.

As its a narrow beach, will we have problems with the 4x4? will the sand be too soft and will we get thru if the waves are coming up further than normal?

just asking some advice from fisho's who have been there before in large swells, to find out if we will be wasting our time or not.

Might not do much fishing till after midnight when it settles down a bit anyway.

 

Cheers

Tony

I think you'll struggle

it isn't the widest beach on earth and the big swells we've had of late would've moved a fair bit of sand around.

Went there bit over a week ago with a big swell and it was pretty much unfishable way to
Much weed , might have cleared up a bit though, you should be fine with 4x4ing was a bit chopped up but just stay high up on the beach and stay in the tracks cos its real soft and washed away closer to the water let us know how u go

Casting boots

Mon, 2011-06-27 21:28

You.d better have your casting boots on because with a 3.7 metre swell dropping down to 2.4 will still need a BIGGG cast to get to clear water, that is if you can find some thats not all churned up from tomorrows blow.
