Cher­abin and barra abun­dance

Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Sara Hen­nessy

Many of you will re­mem­ber life “BC” — be­fore chil­dren.

A time when you would wake up in the morn­ing, re­alise the weather was per­fect and just load your gear and go fish­ing.

Last week­end, I rem­i­nisced about those days as I fer­ried around five chil­dren from birth­day party to the com­mu­nity Christ­mas party to choir per­for­mances — all in near-per­fect fish­ing con­di­tions.

Be­ing cau­tious of track con­di­tions af­ter a good wet-sea­son storm late on Fri­day night, other lucky Derby an­glers were able to cap­i­talise on the mo­ment, with re­ports com­ing through of good cher­abin cap­tures at Tum­ble­goodie on the Fitzroy River and solid barra cap­tures around Meda Sands on the May River.

Mud­crabs are also still be­ing caught in good num­bers in and around the Derby Town­ship.
