thought about it and check my logs...I'm not sure but doesn't depend on where you are ??
I'm curious...never could make head or tail of the stated wind directions without a specific "out of the" or "from". I even took a meteorology course...didn't help at all.Moderate E/SE/NE= Clear green water(bluefish/spanish/cobia/king)
Moderate SW/NW= Brown water(skate/roundhead/spot/croaker)
West wind= This one is tricky, the water will be clear but it drops the temps way down, in the heat of summer ive seen lots of cobia on a west wind off of sandbridge pier, so if the water is already in the 70+ range west is good
Just some of my own personal observations, my favorite is a slight east breeze especially if it blows east for 3 or 4 days you never know what will be lurking around....and you can take that to the bank ha ha.geo
Many times we have a nw'r at our back on n beach here in Hatteras... Caught many a big drum when conditions were like that in Nov.. Or a sw'r at our back earlier in the season.. Seems to stack the menhaden up inside.. That is WHEN there IS menhaden to be stacked up...Wind at your back, nothing in your sack!
Wind direction always indicates the origin of the wind as you put it or the direction it comes from not blows to. S/E @ 10-15 kts. means the wind is coming from south east and blowing towards the north west.I'm curious...never could make head or tail of the stated wind directions without a specific "out of the" or "from".

Do your directions indicated the origin or the destination of the wind?
