Hi All,
Just wondering if anyone is venturing offshore from Coffs in the days leading up too Christmas, would love to get out and go for a fish.
Cheers,
Richard

Hi Richard,

If the forecast holds I will probably have a fish off Arrawarra this Saturday morning at first light.

Cheers
Steve

Hi Steve,
How easy is it to launch from Arrawarra? I have a Hobie Adventure Island and haven't beach launched or returned to the beach yet in it, I think it would surf waves like the titanic somehow,
Cheers,
Richard

Hi Richard,
Arra is generally a very easy launch.
It is protected from a southerly swell and only gets rough in a Easterly. Looking at the forecast I expect it will be fine.
Your other option with pretty much zero surf would be to launch at the Jetty in Coffs.
Cheers
Steve

You should be right off Arra in an AI, I launch from there regularly in mine. Goodluck!
Cheers,
Brad
