Sticky: Not much for Monday

Fishing?
Hello Friends,

Given the average period of the metre or so of ESE swell is around the 8 second mark, I’m a little surprised that Dee Why looks as dire as it does. I thought there should be at least the occasional little thing in the knee to waist range. But nothing like that was evident when I grabbed the snap at around 0730. It could be that the high tide was swamping it. Tide peaked at 0735 or so. By the time the low arrives at 1400, the onshores should be up and going pretty hard. So, maybe look around at better exposed spots and try to get something before the wind’s an issue.

The outlook is little changed in the last 24 hours – at least as far as the remainder of the work week is concerned. As the Goat would say, up a bit and down a bit, but basically only into the barely surfable range at the right tide and spot.

Some of the swell modelling is predicting a longer period east pulse toward next weekend. They aren’t all agreeing on it right now, so we’ll just keep an eye on things in the meantime – while keeping our fingers crossed.

Go well with your Monday!
