Trolled bibbed minnows and rigged garfish have been working well on spanish mackerel off Entrance Point and Gantheaume Point. Sailfish are being occasionally encountered wide of Barred Creek and James Price Point. Reef fishing within Roebuck Bay has been fairly productive with some nice catches of chinaman cod, coral trout and snapper caught during the past fortnight. The charter operators, who have been venturing out wider, have been putting their clients onto red emperor, saddletail seaperch and rankin cod.
A 1.05cm barramundi caught on a whole fish bait was among dozens of smaller barra picked up at Dampier Creek this past week. The barra in Dampier have generally been of good size measuring between 70cm and 90cm. The Fitzroy River has also been producing some entertaining barra sessions, however the fish in this system have mostly been around the 50cm mark and smaller. A customer of Tackle World Broome landed a 1.1m mulloway at the jetty last Wednesday. Schools of small golden trevally and milkfish have also been frequenting the structure.
