Gusts of 65km on accuweather from the SSW on thursday night (probably much stronger in reality) - id say that will take care of the southerly beaches for the weekend - aim for somewhere else

corbyeire you are not the bringer of good news to me :D seriously though thanks for the info.
i attempted to fish that long beach to the right of kilmore quay one day a few years ago, looked very fishable lovely surf however the weed was atrocious, anyways i might give it a miss altogether.
