Lat­est in Broome, Derby

Broome Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - Wes Francks

An­other year has come and gone and the fish­ing in and around Broome has been as good as ever.

The Broome Fish­ing Club has held sev­eral suc­cess­ful com­pe­ti­tions through­out 2018 and the 10month long Broome Pro­gres­sive Sup­plies ag­gre­gate com­pe­ti­tion was no ex­cep­tion.

It was cer­tainly a fam­ily af­fair with one fam­ily tak­ing out all three cham­pion ti­tles with Todd Sul­li­van tak­ing out the Ju­nior Cham­pion award in a very close com­pe­ti­tion.

Tracy Sul­li­van took out the Cham­pion Fe­male ti­tle in an­other close-fought com­pe­ti­tion.

Ross Ital­iano was awarded the Cham­pion Male for the year but Todd Sul­li­van was awarded the Cham­pion Over All ti­tle in yet an­other tightly fought com­pe­ti­tion with only 25cm dif­fer­ence in the over­all cham­pion cat­e­gory af­ter 10 months of fish­ing.

The Broome Fish­ing Club will be have a break over Christ­mas and will be closed from De­cem­ber 24, re­open­ing on Jan­uary 11.

To start the new year the Broome Fish­ing Club will be kick­ing off with a barra com­pe­ti­tion dur­ing Fe­bru­ary, weather per­mit­ting of course.

The Broome Fish­ing Club would like to thank their spon­sors for their sup­port through­out 2018 and are look­ing for­ward to their sup­port dur­ing 2019.

This will be the last fish­ing col­umn for the year and I have had fun writ­ing sto­ries and post­ing pho­tos of lo­cals with their cap­tures. I will be back in Jan­uary with more.

That’s it from me Merry Christ­mas and tight lines to all.

More fish­ing on The Great­est Catch, Wed­nes­days at 11am on Spirit 102.9
