    Same here. I’ll keep checking the conditions I suppose, but if it looks like it’s going to be windy, or big swell, I won’t be going. Just not worth going all that way, although I could still fish somewhere else on the way back. Might actually check out Birdlings Flat this weekend, if the weather’s alright.

    The roads are; From state highway 1, take stonyhurst road onto blythe road follow this till you get to the 135 degree corner which is the turn off onto napenape road take this to the beach, (and if you do happen to continue on stonyhurst you’ll end up doing a big circuit, as long though if you turn onto limestone road from here you’ll endup back on blythe road which will take you to where you need to be dont know how long this circuit and wrong turn takes though as i took it for only a few minutes before i realised i went the wrong way.)
