Had a quick look again just before sunset. It'd picked up a foot but also straightened out quite a lot. If only it had just a few degrees of east in the swell then it would've been cooking.

There were a lot of straight pocketless ones also. Swell needs to dial east a bit, even a fraction.

kind of a cool swell pulse today, some long interval, not insanely muscular but there it was

you could feel the weather turn away from the late winter cold burst of the past month.

The island this arvo with 3 mates, all to ourselves for a good while.
Swell down here was prolly a little more lumpy and disorganised than sydney or further north i would think. Improved somewhat as the easterly dropped away into the afternoon. The swell direction was not too bad and the odd double up inside runner that stood up properly on the reef was worth the wait. There was also the usual wide bomb sets that went mush burger. Thought we were going ok till Guy Bartlett paddled out with a couple of mates and started actually surfing.

I was just about to paddle out.....2 guys out.

Then saw the shark boat pull up to the drumline. Just out the back.

hey shearer what has been your observation of the whale track this year? Further offshore?

Just anecdotally etc

Not by my observations.

Plenty of times I've been rockfishing and had humpbacks within casting distance.

In my ramble this morning I must have seen 10-15 whales all quite close in. Pretty standard for this time of year on the return journey.

Shark listening stations getting regularly pinged, captures still happening on the drumlines.

I think this is the seasonal peak for inshore white shark activity in this marine bioregion.

What have you heard re: track?

Ah one or two people told me they thought it was a bit further out

Down here they've been closer in than usual though. Like the majority are out about 8k from the northern beaches, appear a bit closer at Long Reef and Botany Bay heads because of the coastal ins and outs, then just head off, but there's been little groups come in much closer this year.

I don't have any scientific proof but it's my observations that the new families come in much closer on the way back and I believe they are right in on some bommies and bait reefs, possibly to scrape parasites off the skin ?
