April saw the water temp on the Broome Sailfish grounds drop by 4 degrees and the fishing has gone crazy! We had numerous charters out there catching a lot of anglers their first Sails. The best day for April was 10 Sails for Tom, Rex and Toby (all sailfish virgins) in the first two hours of fishing! There where big pods of Sails on the surface everywhere and we would have seen around 60 fish for the morning!
Sportfish has been steady and on the days where the Sailfish bite has slowed we’ve had plenty of Mackies, Tuna and Trevally to keep us entertained. The Mackies have been fairly solid fish with some of the bigger ones in the 120cm range.
From April right through to November our focus moves away from the bay charters and is set on Billfish. Over the next 8 months of cool water we should see the phenomenal numbers of Sailfish that Broome is well known for! If your interested in a charter, get in contact now as dates are filling fast!
