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.
