I was going to say ‘autumn weather’ but I guess thats just wishful thinking. At least things are starting to settle a bit. We’ve had a few weeks of rough seas and dirty water, and even some of the creatures that nature has evolved to be equipped for this don’t make it.
Today while fishing at Whirinaki beach I took this photo of a very skinny and very dead seal pup. My guess would be starvation. Pretty hard to catch a feed when the water is rough and filthy for weeks on end.
The sea was pretty clean today, a few big swells but nothing too serious. No fish though.
