As much as we love our Kimberley Region and fishing we always look forward to the change to blue water. Our first trip for the season out to the Rowley Shoals 175nm West of Broome was a cracker. We had super weather and a mixed group from all around Australia and one expat from overseas.
They all caught some exceptional fish and enjoyed the variety of species and fishing techniques on offer. We did almost everything! Trolling for tuna and wahoo, light and heavy popper fishing for all sorts of reef fish, switchbaiting for Sailfish, trolling for Blue Marlin and soft plastic jigging. I think the only thing we didn’t do was deep dropping for deep water species.
They caught Sails to 30kg, GT’s to maybe 35kg, loads of reef species including Coral Trout, Humphead Maori Wrasse, Maori Sea Perch, Red Bass, Black and Bluefin Trevally, Maori Sea Perch, Jobfish and Longnosed Emperors just to name a few.
Check out some of the photo’s, the quality of the fish out here at the Rowley Shoals is amazing.
