Greenhead new years trip

 Spent the new years long weekend in Green Head with the future wife fishing off the boat. First time so no spots just a nice getaway. Winds were up so fishing was uncomfortable especially for me, travacalm natural dont work for me apparently... on the plus side was very happy with the 530 freedom sport in the conditions although did get a bit wet at times.

First day fishing i got an octopus on line which was new for me but fishwise nil, while i was burleying up Courtney got her first Dhu! At 540mm not a beast but a keeper and was on her new combo aswell so she was stoked. Otherwise she caught a few wrasse and an ocky aswell.

Second day towed the boat to Jurien Bay and stayed within the islands as the wind was up over 15kn. Fished the bay for some more wrasse untill we both got stitched up by a ray, took my bait and swam into her rig aswell. 

Last day hit Green Head again but staying in shallow due to winds, got some small coral trout and a nearly sized break sea before hooking another ray that resulted in my shimano terez snapping in half...

All in all not my best fishing trip but was a good weekend away anyways, cooking fresh dhufish on the bbq for lunch was the best way to finish 2017. now i get to buy a new rod.

 Very relaxed place, did a bbq at the local where we were told they celebrate eastern states new years at 9wst because noone can be bothered staying up till midnight, wasnt complaining about that.
