Sunday's weather

Not being a boatie, I am wondering if some of you experienced hands have any thoughts on what the weather is looking like for going offshore fishing on Sunday. I looked at Seabreeze on Tuesday and it looked fantastic. Had a day off yesterday and started getting my gear ready to go out boat fishing for the firts time in two years and came back to work today to find that the conditions have all changed.
Sunday looks like a good day for beach fishing and, I think, it looks okay for offshore early. But you guys know far better than me.
Many thanks Colin Hay

Hard to tell

Looks a bit messy to me with strong southerlies all weekend making the water a bit wishy washy. Plus a 2.5m swell will make life a bit uncomfortable if it actually ends up being an accurate forcast.
All depends on the size boat you are going out in. Sunday would be my upper limit for a boat my size (5.8m). But probably considered reasonable weather for anything bigger than 6m.

Sounds like we will be doing some rocking and rolling.

The Anglers Alamanac is saying that Sunday is only a fair day for fishing and a US web site has given it its highest rating. Hope the latter is right.

Yeah colin, I was hoping to take my boat out for the first time since Xmas.

Looked good this morning, will have to wait and see what it says Sat night.

Friday night is looking bad for a final Marron trip for the season.
Too much wind just makes it too hard to see and more incentive for beer.
