Really wanted to get down to buff and see it in the carpark but parenting/hungry belly got in the way
Everydays a good day when your fishing

I went to buff and was severely disappointed. The water covered th top of the ramp but you could still drive a car around the turn circle and stay dry. There was some debris washing around. I remember driving through salt water and only seeing the top of the speed humps sticking up out of the water along the road. Been a few years and before the current setup was installed. Wasn't worth taking pics. The debris line is not much higher than normal.
how many is enough lures, rods and reels. Is there a magic number, considering you usually only catch 1 fish on a single lure on the one rod and reel your casting with.

That wasn't the highest tide either, says it was the 8.08m, there was 8.17m the next day.

It would be full on to have a Townsville type monsoon over a king tide.
It would be good to do a bit of modeling and release it publicly if we did have a big rain event. Atleast we would know what’s at risk, and be more informed what’s should be a priority with sand bagging etc.

Was down the wharf for the .059 low that day for a look and reminder of the harbour layout - would love to see satellite images of the Darwin Harbour on a lowest low. There were small Queenies and Barracuda working hard around the pilons.

Mickkk - try this link for storm surge, high tide stuff.
