Jurien in bad weather



Heading to Jurien next week and the weather look shite for Mon Tues and the swell still pretty average for the rest of the week as far as getting out to the 40s-50s . 


Anyone had any joy fishing inside the reef over the shallower ground?   Looks to be some half decent areas heading out on the north lead in 10-15 m depth range?  


Or should I just take more beer and leave the boat on the trailer?

Be careful up there with swell

 Been out once when swell went up during the day and it was quite scary and not pleasant. We didn't stay out long and would not head out in that situation again. Take more beer

We did it 2 years ago in similar conditions. Fished just off the lead line for a bucketful of skippy. Was pretty safe with a 4m swell but no wind.

Favorite Island

We slowly motored across to Favorite Island a few years ago when was very windy. Just took it easy from the harbour.


Anchored in the calm of the island , catching heaps good size herring and skippy.


The beer option looks good for monday though !
