Were the pointers to it being something to speak of wrong or misread?

This is an extraordinarily flaccid summer.

I can't see a three foot wave in sight for weeks.

The rainfall deficit is also extraordinary..


despite the neutral Nina state for all intents and purposes we are in an intense El Nino phase.

maybe this is a new normal?

God help us if we do move into an El Nino this year as models are starting to indicate.

Yeah, it's like it has forgotten how to rain.

70% of QLD is already drought declared.... moving into El Nino would hardly be good news for the affected farmers.

When Victorians, Tasmanians, South and West Australians get told by Queenslanders that they should move north because the surfing up there is just awesome

An old guy once told me, don't bother fishing in a northerly, you won't catch anything worth a damn.

From the 3 or 4 years I spent fishing thunder rock on the north coast, he seemed to be mostly correct. N/NE breeze under 10 knots was fine. Once it got over that mark, forgetaboutit. Nothing but vermin.

Jeez that was some good fishing up there off the stones. Trevally longer than your legs, hour + long fights with kingies. I remember I cast the old gangs & pilly right onto the back of a breeching manta ray once. Thing spooled me in about a nano second.

The little goat track you had to scamper up & down with all your gear plus a 14 foot gaff just to get there used to send a wee chill down the spine.

You just have to be a bit versatile, there's always Groper on calm days they pull like tractors, but I just can't bring myself to harm the big dumb buggers these days.

Hey Shep ... the cheese and I popped into Wooli for a gander the other day. Nice looking water around that break wall. We'll be heading back at some point ... kayaks in the river ... big stick off the rocks. You ever fished it ?
