Usual suspects out in good numbers
A few months ago, I wrote about a local fisherman. Ben Little. capturing a pending record threadfin salmon while fly fishing. Well it is now official. Ben finally received the paper work in the mail recently after a few months of waiting, so well done Ben.
The fishing in and around Broome is still firing, with the usual suspects barramundi, triple tail and threadfin salmon being caught in good numbers.
Broome Fishing Club stalwart Robert “Bulldog” Locke caught a cracker northern mulloway over Crab Creek way the other day as well as a variety of other fish.
I stumbled into a few goodsized triple tail in Roebuck Bay recently. I even managed to catch five fish in relatively shallow water by just following the shallow water line looking for weed floating in the water.
I also managed to catch six barramundi in Dampier Creek the same afternoon.
Jeff Cooper fished in Crab Creek last weekend and told me that there is a plague of jellyfish drifting in and out with the tide, making it impossible to tow a lure in the creek.
I have also heard another boat unfortunately cooked its engine, with a jellyfish getting stuck in the water pick-up, causing it to overheat.
Jeff also reported he had caught triple tail in very good numbers over on the Crab Creek side of Roebuck Bay.
