Plenty of op­tions when the breeze is up

Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Sara Hen­nessy

Derby’s af­ter­noon breezes have been sav­age lately, which has put a damp­ener on get­ting out to the creeks via King Sound.

But the great thing about Derby is there are so many op­tions close by that do not re­quire launch­ing into rough con­di­tions at the ramp.

Get­ting up the Bun­garung Road for a fish at Blue Holes and Mud Holes Creek sys­tems has re­sulted in some great cap­tures of bar­ra­mundi up to 120cm and jacks, fin­ger­mark and mul­loway.

Quad bik­ing across the marsh to the back of Doc­tors Creek has been pro­duc­tive for some, with one an­gler reach­ing his take­home bag limit of barra in less than an hour.

An­other pop­u­lar spot is Poul­tens Pool.

Sara Hen­nessy is the pres­i­dent of the Mary Is­land Fish­ing Club in Derby.

Lau­rie Don­nelly with a solid fin­ger­mark caught in Stokes Bay in late Septem­ber be­fore the winds picked up.
