I use Bouyweather I'm not sure if that is what you are referring to. I get the subcription service and get reports that are about as accurate as a report cane be. Fishing offshore requires close attention to wind and sell predictions. Also some of the sailing wind sites are very good I use Sailflow as a reference. When making a decision to run long I'll review three sites and make the call about three days out. Wind is hard to forecast and it is the most important ingrediant for fishing offshore. Probably nothing new here for you. Be sure to understand that bih weather services predict over large areas. In SoCal NOAA uses prediction areas where the wind and swell are averaged over a whole area like from Catalina south to the mex border. There is a lot variation in that area and purchasing a service that microcasts is a good idea and cheap insurance at 50 bucks a year or so.
