  1. HiI have a 5.5 meter plate centre console and am looking for some advise on what weather reports to look out for wind direction/speed and swell combinations for fishing out at the Cape / Hutchies Reef?I'm looking for something as a guide that will be relatively smooth / safe, it does not have to be glass (although nice) but not wanting something too rough to keep it comfortable for the family.Whats the max / min between the combinations to keep an eye out for? Ive seen weather reports where I assumed it would be bumpy to see it flat...and vice versa.Leaving from and returning to Scarborough.Any advise appreciated.Cheers
  2. Hi Guys I am planning to do a few overnight trips in my boat soon, just wanted some knowledge from people on here on the following:- 1. Do many people stay out overnight at places like Deep Tempest if the wx and swell are good ? or do most coming back around Comby and stay near Bulwer, Tanagalooma ? 2. When camping overnight on your boat in the bay near Bulwer etc do you need to be extra cautious in a westerly wind, in case you finish up on the beach ? 3. Any other little comfort tips people might have would be appreciated. Terry
  3. So I started my fishing journey largely all land based many years ago. Pretty simple really, each weekend with a mate and cousin we would scope out canals and bridges (Goldie). Being students we rarely ever purchased bait and fishing for us meant cast netting for bait, if there was no bait we would move to the next spot. Besides rain and tides, wind typically didn't factor into our fishing plans (if we were free we would go fishing) Bream, Flatties, Trevally and Jacks were our common catches. When Iooking at boats and trying to decide open tinnie or bay boat my target was for Northern bay fishing (had enough fun fishing for estuary species) so i went with a bay boat (bar crusher 575c) But where do you go with a bay boat when the Bay is playing up and conditions are rubbish? I did not realise how weather dependent boat fishing was. Wind, rain, tide, moon, swell etc. I live near Brisbane CBD (5km south) where would be some suggested estuary areas that are protected from wind and not too shallow so if when I feel the urge to wet a line i'm not constantly hoping for a forecast change on Seabreeze, met eye, windy each weekend hahahaha. Pumicestone Passage? Broadwater? Southern Bay? Trying to decide where i explore next.
  4. Weather looking good. Batteries are charged. Might give Moreton Bay a go tomorrow!
  5. Hi All, I have recently returned to Brisbane after a 20 year absence. I plan to take my 5.4 Mtr boat with 140HP out to the top tip of Moreton on Wednesday. Seabreeze says 10 knot winds and 1.5 metre seas. That sounds like good weather (based on where I come from) but is that true? Does that make Wednesday a good day for that trip?
