Incessant Winds
7 October 2014
0 0

Another nonevent type week, with a couple more trips cancelled due to the incessant winds. I suppose it is the time of year partly, that equinoxal period, but it is wearing a bit thin.

I even did something we hardly ever do, and that was come home early on Wednesday. When I saw the size of the swell rolling over Matakana bar I nearly turned round then, but pressed on, checked out a half dozen different marks for no sign and no fish at all and pulled the pin. The swell was 2-3 times what was predicted, a heavy ground swell as well, so we flagged it.

We talked to a skipper who stayed out for longer, he got nothing also, so the right call in the circumstances, but cold comfort.
