Local Fishing Report: Monday 2018-04-09


Winds will be southeasterly at 10 to 15 knots decreasing to about 10 knots in the morning, with seas around 1m and easterly swell around 1m inshore increasing to 1.5m in offshore waters. With easing conditions today it's worth heaping out to the inshore reefs to chase the schooling long tail tuna and mixed bag of reef fish.
