Ground swell had picked up since Sunday...

Another abbreviated week, with just the one day on Tuesday and it was a stinker too. We had a late start, but the forecast was light variable, going 10kn S.W., sounded good.

As we went through the entrance, the water was badly discoloured, looking like a ground swell had picked up since Sunday.

The sign was bad when we got to our 1st marks, the wind was 20+kn and a very sloppy sea. Fishing was a non event , forcing us in behind Motiti where it was just as bad.

Then, the wind dropped away, conditions improved, and we still caught next to no fish. Not one for the archives.
