A customer of Tackle World Broome caught a nice feed of snapper and fingermark bream off Cable Beach earlier this week. Threadfin and bluenose salmon have been caught in good numbers from Cable Beach during the neap tides. The Town Beach is worth a try for queenfish and trevally on an incoming tide. Lures have been outperforming live baits on the barramundi in the local creeks.
With water temps in the Cambridge already sitting around the 31 degree mark the barramundi fishing has really started to crank up with some excellent build up fishing done at the mouths of most rivers and creeks where the big female breeders congregate before spawning. If you can locate a school of these big barramundi you should have no problems enticing them to take a trolled lure, the new suspending Classic Barra range seem to be working a treat, especially in the Guns N Roses and Banana colours. One boat of lucky anglers reported 10 barra from 85-102cm over a couple of days of fishing, with two of those over the magic meter mark.
There have been some good reports coming out of Lake Kununurra with some fish bigger becoming a more common catch, generally from the 60-80cm mark. Jigging soft plastics down around the base of the snags and along the weed beds has been most productive.
