[tps_header]I put a call out for Broome reports – and I have had an update come in!
It seems that the fishing in Broome, like the rest of the West, is predictably quite hot at the moment as well. Steve Palumbo, who was recently in NQ fishing the Mike Carney Toyota Billfish Challenge in Townsville with Sharky on Levante, tells me that they had some good action on Thursday finishing with 13 sails released. Steve also reports that his good mate, Jeda Ellens from Makaira Game Fishing backed up from his result on Thursday releasing 11 sails on Friday. Steve predicts that its going to be a cracker next month or two!
And more from WA, the Exmouth Australian Masters Billfish Tournament results are in. The tournament was held over the weekend with three days of billfishing specifically for anglers over 55.
7 teams with 13 master anglers and 17 crew participated raising 66 billfish for 47 hookups and 17 tags over the three days.
