Seaway Conditions Update Saturday 16th October
As predicted the swell has dropped right off to less than a metre, the water quality is still very poor but it wont take long before it cleans up as long as we dont have any more significant rain and the swell remains small. Photos from today at the top of the tide showed the clean water just offshore though the water around the north wall is still quite dirty, not quite enough flow to clean it up. The water around the south wall is cleaner but visibility is still less than a metre at the top of the tide. Visibility at any other stage of the tides is less than half a metre. No more significant rain is forecast for the next week so hopefully that should give it time to clean up.
On the plus side I did see some birds diving on bait today, could be a few schools of froggies have made thier way in despite the dirty water.
