Great idea. Sutton Martello tower last night, so much weed it was impossible. Had to drag my gear in by hand and cut the line out of the weeds.

Mornington this evening: Rafts of weed on surface began to enter the estuary 1hr after LW. Most I've seen on the surface in some time, literally packed up my gear when it reached me

I'm no expert but I'd say it's a no go with the wind direction, but saying that you might pull a fish or 2 if you can fish it! Decisions decisions lol
