Remember the forecasts at the start of winter telling us that it was going to be dry? We hit the average in June and passed it un July. We should get 10% of the monthly average for August today.

this is killing me! lol. with my little boat, even the "gaps" in the weather are a bit too scary. 3m swells bit too big for me regardless what the wind is doing... :/ don't think my boat has been locked up this long since i bought it! even worse when u see a lone good day and it happens to be during the working week!!

 These massive swells have destroyed the beach up our way at Seabird, the ramp access has been undermined with loss of the dunes. 3-4 good years of dune rehabilitaion gone.

Yep, its what it should be like. A front every week or so. Plenty of opportunity to get a fish in between fronts if you clever enough and not scared of a bit of rain and swell

yes, it is called winter

Sat, 2018-08-04 19:00

 Happens every year, to some degree, about this time of year. Good to see it can be like it should be. We've had some windless weather, at times up here, but the swell has been pretty unrelenting. Apart from the fishing being largely crap during a big swell, it has meant the river has been pretty hazardous. Some people have " braved" it--they are fools, at least on the days I've been looking at it.
