quick abrolhos trip

So with thebalmy weather  a quick trip north was on the cards  mothers day was perfect but no chance there ! Couldnt  believe that the weather  stayed good  through till last weekend 

So talked to the boss then talked to a mate and we were all set for a 3am departure and back  for monday

now for a first trip who ya gunna call ! Rob H!

Thanks for all the info Rob

Left batavia mid morning  and steamed over in about 2 hours fished around hummock island and trolled few lures for not much  Heaps Birds  and activity but no strikes ..Cruised the eastern  side and found a  public mooring  for the night. Easterlies  were howling  the next day so stayed shallow Picked up some solid pinkys so put the mask on .. baldy city! Had a good day on baldys and trout .

moored at a great spot the next night  and had a bit of land under our feet for the arvo   

Easterlies were pumping again  next day so quick fish before  we headed back to geraldton

was a great first trip and will definitely be back!

Used about 70 L each way with a 200 suzuki 6.5  metre boat so well within the range of most traler boats
