Dangerous rock fishing conditions predicted

THE Bureau of Meteology is warning that a low pressure system in the western Tasman Sea is expected to generate strong southwesterly winds and moderate easterly swells along the entire NSW coast over the weekend.

Rockfishing and boating conditions are expected to be hazardous on Sunday and Monday with combined seas and swells of up to 7 metres breaking dangerously close inshore.

In an alert issued by The Recreational Fishing Alliance of NSW, fishos are being warned that local conditions may vary so they are advised to check conditions on their area of the coast by going to the Bureau's coastal weather forecasts before planning a trip. Don't take unnecessary risks ... find a quieter, safer place to fish, and stay home in rough weather!

Whenever you fish, choose a safe spot. Don't fish alone, make sure you have non-slip shoes, wear a life jacket and never turn your back on the sea.
