    Not going out !

    All ok today ! Route in/out is a bit longer now the Bar has grown to the East . The yellow buoys help but if the tide is down a bit or any swell you need to go well East of the last yellow. Sea state was OK early on today but got rather snotty as the wind freshened from SE...then went to S and eased a bit. Had a try for whiting ...and managed a couple but was besieged by dogfish. Came back in [with the wind] found a few livebaits and got my bass.....then into the harbour to see if any flounders...and managed one !...before an early finish.

    Not going out !

    That was midday today......this afternoon I had a walk along Southbourne prom.; there were big waves crashing on the beach. on the way back, after an hour or so, they had died down a lot. I'm hoping that continues overnight..... ...and I expect I'll be back in tomorrow before they build again from the South.....Magic Seaweed gives it slight. I'll report tomorrow.

    Not going out !

    Thought I'd go and have a look outside today....it didn't look too bad on the webcam. When I pulled onto the quay......breakers !! .....and stretching all down the Bar....with no percievable route through. As I sat and looked to see how consistent it was, the big white cat came rumbling past on it's way out....so I sat and watched. It went really slowly and just kept going East....eventually getting into smoother water down near Steamer Point....but having through lots of broken water tipping it about. I didn't fancy that...so turned around.....and will have another look tomorrow. Alun.

    Windows closing....

    Looks like we are stuck in this run of strong West winds with plenty of rain. Tuesday's possible window is being blown out of the forecasts as Sunday's NW fails to lead to the brief northerly cold interval..... .....so fishing plans will rely on winds going S or SE ....and another hunt for harbour flounders ! Perhaps the extra freshwater in the rivers may help [??].

    Christchurch Entrance

    Out today ...and the Run and Bar seemed OK, with plenty of water and channel marked with several yellow buoys [ keep to North of these...ie Starboard out; Port in ]. Luckily, no swell to contend with ; it could look different after the next few days! Alun.

    Twin Sails

    I was stuck there yesterday and thought the same. Is it such a big adjustment?

    Christchurch Entrance

    Went down to the quay this afternoon to see if I'd made the right call , not going out this morning.....and it didn't look too bad.....just very grey and gloomy and a small surf on the Bar ...but clear where it's deeper [at the mo.!] I see they are starting to bring in the red and green channel markers....so all we will have soon is a couple of yellow ones and eyes peeled on the breaking water. Alun.

    Friday 16th. November.

    I wonder if those above have turned around and come back in.? I was up early , looking to go out ...and saw E wind in double figures at 6 a.m. After a rubbish session in the harbour yesterday, all plans abandoned ! Alun.
