Easter a chal­lenge for de­cent catch

Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Sara Hen­nessy

Fish­ing over Easter can have its chal­lenges.

With the huge tides and sea­son-chang­ing weather events, the bite can be hot or not.

For us, it was the lat­ter as we strug­gled to catch any­thing of a de­cent size and were con­fronted with a series of rain squalls in the In­land Sea, just north of Derby.

When the sun did come out, we were treated to some beau­ti­ful con­di­tions with the wa­ter­falls crank­ing, the ocean be­ing the per­fect tem­per­a­ture and stun­ning golden sun­sets. While we had a miss, other Der­byites recorded smash­ing ses­sions on the Barra at Kim­boul­ton and Tele­graph Pool with large num­bers of un­der­size barra caught in the creeks closer to Derby.
