High tide is around 5pm
So should be helpfull.

If worse comes to worse ill might hit corinella.

Im just hopeless for spots around phillip island/ that way



Saturday is going to be really rough weather wise.

I think hes fishing Sunday? Cleeland will be about the only somewhat fishable place on Saturday though with a strong westerly



Yeah. With a heap of rain the water often gets really dirty there. The evening high might be ok on Sunday.

Yeah will be fishing sunday, only day off work is just getting in the way

Yeah it was hard to establish a good drift pattern with a strong westerly.

A squid first cast then nothing after that. Bit of swell towards the green marker coming from over the sand bar on high tide but relatively flat everywhere else

Thought it would be a bit tough the whiting can be a good option when the water is stirred up a bit post wind/swell.
