As you drive into the Greenough area you start to notice something unusual about some of the trees on the side of the road. They have grown vertical for a short distance and then horizontal for the rest of their length.
This weekend we experienced the conditions that made it possible for these trees to grow this way. Wind, Geraldton's often relentless sea breeze was with us for the entire weekend. There were some respites in the morning when the wind was down to about 10 knots but for most of the time it whistled in around 25 to 30 knots.
One of the byproducts of the constant wind was a plentiful supply of weed. Most spots north of nine mile were badly affected with either weed sitting on the bottom or suspended in the water column. Consequently good catches of weed of all description was had by all.
Of the eighteen members and guests who made the trip north, only 5 of us weighed in fish at the end of the weekend. However, the fish that were weighed in were of good size.
