Broome Time!

Just wondering if anyone can help me? I am spending the Chrissy break up at Broome with a few mates and was wondering if there is any good spots, land based, around the town or just outside, that maybe worth trying? I havent been up there before so I wouldnt have a clue what to expect etc.
Any help would be appreciated.

I was up there in July and I

I was up there in July and I fished the jetty. It was a bit slow around that time but I've heard that it can be a good spot for big queenies - we only managed a couple of undersize NW Snapper. Might be worth a shot and could possibly fish better at this time of the year. We also went up to Willie creek (only a short drive from broome) and fished but only got some small malabar cod. The water was really cold when we were there but you could be in for a chance of a barra or nice jack at this time.

If you're not tied to broome for any reason I would suggest doing the short trip up to Derby for a bit. Ask the locals about LB Barra fishing and I'm sure they could point you in the right direction.
