Sign up for classic weekend on water
Broome Fishing Club will be holding their annual May Day Classic again this year, with the briefing night to be held on Friday, May 11, at the club, and fishing to start on Saturday, May 12, with lines in at 7am and lines out at 3pm on Sunday, May 13.
This competition is a family-friendly event with lots of prizes on offer for juniors and seniors alike.
The overall winner will be given the honour of having their name on the perpetual trophy as well as lots of prizes.
With 20 fish species on offer, this competition offers a diverse range of fishing over the two days.
If an easterly wind blows early, you can fish for reef fish in close on Cable Beach or you can even chase sailfish and marlin in close around Bard Creek.
If thewesterly pops up in the afternoon, fish for threadfin or mulloway in Roebuck Bay.
Broome Fishing Club supports catch and release.
While we respect all anglers’ rights to keep fish for consumption, we also promote sustainable fishing. I encourage members and non-members to come down to the club and register on May 11 and grab some fish and chips and a cool beverage while you are there. That’s it from me — tight lines to all.
