Kimberley COast Fishing Trip

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the kind words everyone. If you have ever dreamed to head up there, do whatever it takes to turn it into a reality. The Kimberley is an amazing place and I've only just scratched the surface!

Great footage bringing back fond memories.

I lived up in the Pilbara during the 80's and fished from Coral Bay to Broome, and as you say, awesome country and fishing.

Highlight for me was spending 8 days starting on Boxing Day 1985 on 2 Marlin Broadbills camped out on the Monte Bello islands about 80km off the Dampier Archipelago.

Fishing and diving there was the best in my 58 years of fishing. Where we camped we had large turtles coming up the beach to lay their eggs whilst other eggs were hatching and thousands of little turtles scurrying to the water to avoid the gulls.

During one hookah diving trip we managaed a crayfish that fed 6 of us and some seagulls, it was a monster!!

Wow brutus, sounds like an epic trip - and to live there it must have been amazing!

I briefly hooked a marlin out the back of cassini Island on spin gear. Massive fish and I've never seen line get stripped from a reel so quickly!

Plenty of turtles on the beaches and in the water too, simply magnificent to watch :)

Didn't dive for any crays for fear of being eaten lol however we did get some magnificent mud crabs and black lipped oysters.
