 Light to moderate easterly early should be nice in the morning inshore. Probably a bit choppy offshore early, afternoon looks nice

 My rule of thumb is if you don't know don't go. 
what is safe and comfortable to some won't be the same for others. Experience vessel knowledge all too many variables to go on someone else's advice.

Pretty lousy out there

Sun, 2021-05-02 07:29

 Was pretty lousy out there early, but got better late morning. Like tot says, washing machine with wind, current and swell going in different directions.  Didn't do too well with undersize dhuies, baldie and lots of pinks. Managed 3 blackass - (1 big one) and 2 swallowtail
