Dangerous rock fishing conditions alert

09 Aug 2012

THE Bureau of Meteorology has forecast rough conditions for the NSW coast starting today Thursday August 9, with conditions expected to worsen on Friday and continue through the weekend. <br style="margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; padding-top: 0px; padding-right: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px; padding-left: 0px; "><br style="margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; padding-top: 0px; padding-right: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px; padding-left: 0px; ">There will be strong to gale force southwesterly winds and high seas with large swells breaking dangerously close inshore. By Friday, seas of five metres plus swell of five metres are expected all along the NSW coast. These conditions will be extremely hazardous for rockfishing and boating.

To ensure your safety whenever you fish:

  • Choose a safe spot
  • Don't fish alone
  • Wear non-slip shoes
  • Wear a life jacket
  • Never turn your back on the sea.
  • Check Bureau of Meteorology forecasts before planning a trip.<br style="margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; padding-top: 0px; padding-right: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px; padding-left: 0px; "><br style="margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; padding-top: 0px; padding-right: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px; padding-left: 0px; ">For more on rock fishing safety go to: www.safefishing.com.au

Good one, guys

We had HORRIBLE weather yesterday, gale force winds, freezing cold, sleeting rain, followed up last night with a huge thunderstorm, lightening & hail!! WInd has dropped right back today, but still nasty conditions offshore!

Stay safe

If you are on the rocks this weekend... you have them in your head! not under your feet.

I was at Dee Why this afternoon and it was huge!! Tho i did see some dolphins in with the surfers....Very cool sight.

Stay safe everyone.

I took some photos of one of my fishing spots. On most days its a safe spot. I don't have any photos of a calm day to compare.

I think it looks like a plant or something else mot a fishing rod, and wheres the fisherman if that's the rod I hope not, snorkeling. Anyway thanks for the heads up Roberta. Cheers

Tight lines,

Hahaha...no its not a fishing rod. Excuse me for the grainy photos because i used an extremely old camera. Good thing too because the auto lens cover had crystalised from all the salt spray.

Its a stake for something which i think it shouldn't be there because it can give people false sense of security.

I just went to have a look and took some photos.
