Fish Broome - We Know the Spots

Port Drive
Broome WA, Australia

Fish Broome Charters is Broome’s longest operating reef fishing charter company and they know what they’re doing. They will provide you with a magnificent day out on the Indian Ocean aboard a very comfortable boat which was purpose built for catching fish. Their motto is “We only run fishing charters, and we do it really well”. The crew is made up of professional skipper Harley and deckhand Sharky, who both have vast local knowledge and the right attitude to make your day on the water a memorable one.

You will fish aboard a 43 foot reef fishing vessel ‘Rare Breed II’ which has a capacity for 12 guests. This is the fastest jet powered fishing charter boat in Western Australia powered by an 870 HP Caterpillar engine with a maximum cruising speed of 34 knots. The boat is equipped with all the necessary safety equipment and electronics, including an excellent fishfinder. You will also find the outriggers super useful when trolling.

Fish Broome Charters will guide you to some of the best reef fish Australia has to offer. You will target Coral Trout, Crimson Sea Perch, Red and Blue Line Emperor, Spanish Mackerel, Tuna and many species of Trevally. Everything you need for a successful day out on the water is provided: complimentary air conditioned transfers to and from your accommodation, drinking water, soft drinks, snacks and lunch, plus an extensive range of fishing gear.

You will also be able to catch a glimpse of the majestic humpback whales at play from June to September, as well as other aquatic life such as dolphins, turtles, sea snakes and ocean birds.

Pickup was 40 minutes late but was explained by “we are running a little late”.
We were transferred to mother ship by tender from Cable Beach. Crew were very helpful and transfer was achieved safely. Having got underway and clearing the local reef, Captain gave a short but adequate safety briefing before increasing speed heading to the shoal area around 10 nautical miles offshore.
Having reached the fishing ground, we all (10) dropped the pre prepared lines and as luck has it, I caught the first fish. The next 4 hours were spent changing spots and relatively few fish were caught.
Whilst fishing is always a fickle process and several conditions need to be met for a positive fishing result, on our trip, luck was not on our side.
Catering was satisfactory with soft drinks, water and a very filling lunch roll provided.
In summary, a very enjoyable day but would have been fantastic if we had got amongst the fish.
Thank you Harley and crew.
