Hi all

I was wondering how far up and down the coast this weather is going it seems to have been bad since the start of the month. and from memory last september was a bad one too. I couldn't hardly get on the water at Faust, are the seasons moving around it seems to be much more noticible latley.

At the the end of the day it just means more time on the Ausfish, but what do you fellas reckon? Is the seasons changing much, and why wont the rain track more to the west?

This is the worst year that I can remember. We have had the boat out in the ocean only 6 times this year. The SE winds are incessant and the water is continuously dirty from the non stop rain in the mountains flowing into the ocean. Usually our esky is always full of fish, but this year just seem to hardly ever open it.
There is no drought up here in FNQ and our dams are still overflowing.
Forecast said next Wed should be the start of good weather again.
Say goodbye to brown water and Hello to crystal clear ocean water again.

I wish Victoria had your weather problems.

Wycheproof has #water supplied by tanker because of blue/green toxic bloom.
Some other towns are on Stage 5 water restrictions.
And our area has had the driest winter for 123 years.
The Wimmera river has stopped flowing not far from Dimboola.
Looks like a bad year for fires.
