Weather forecast for this weekend.
Wind SW swing to S and then SE late afternoon gusting to a max of 10kts. Wave height starts the day at 1.5m dropping to 1.4m. Temperature reaches a high of 28deg C. Barometer starts off at 1013 dropping to 1010.
Wind N with a gentle swing to NE gusting to a max of 24kts by late afternoon. Wave height starting at 1.4m and climbs to 1.8m later in the day. Temperature will exceed 35 deg and be very humid. Barometer starts at 1009 dropping to 1003
Wind starts of as a NE but swings throughout the day to a SW late afternoon and gusts up to 29kts by late afternoon, we call this a “Baby Buster”. Wave height stars where it left of on Saturday 1.8m dropping to 1.7m by late afternoon.
In my opinion best fishing days are Friday and Saturday , with a earl morning session on Sunday Monday morning. Barometer starts at 1002 dropping to 1000.
Coming up to Spring Tide on Saturday will see a lot of water movement and with the pushing tide must cause a increase in fish activity. I cannot think of a better place to take the family for a picnic as high tide is later afternoon. The summer fish are still high and what more can you get then catching a little king fish on light tackle with a chop grilling away in the back ground.
With the tide as it is over the weekend the “Banks” is the place to be, we have had guys popping in the shop discussing strategy and topping up on bait and tackle, this weekend is going to produce some big fish, the tide is ideal as low tide is just after 10. Book your space now. Kokstad Angling club have chosen the stretch from Doggies to the Main Beach, which I agree with due to the mix of anglers they have with them. They will also stand a chance for the “heavy anglers” to get stuck into some nice fish.
Friday and Saturday or looking very good for launching from the mouth. Wave height is user friendly as is the Barometer on Friday, Saturday early morning but Sunday not very good. Water colour is looking good so with conditions favourable to go out is a must. Earlier in the week the birds were not working and let’s hope this changes and the all inactive game fish come to the party.
