Depends how strong. 3 oz usually okay for wind up to 30kmh, yes maybe 4oz.
4oz or 5oz for 30-40kmh wind.
For me anyway.

I might fish warmies/port melb tomorrow and/or Saturday afternoon.

Jase - White tops...white caps...white horses...are all terms used relating to the white frothy bit on the top of a wave, as it crashes/breaks in windy conditions.

Nice red although I am getting increasingly frustrated by these pictures for a few reasons all selfish.
1. I have no time to fish at the moment.
2. Photos and reports encourage people to get out there which creates more people and boat traffic.
