his giant 140cm barramundi landed in the Barra Base boat after a fight with Brett Torossi in the turning tidal waters of a small creek known only to a few experienced Top End guides.

Peak Barramundi Fishing

The third day of this Run-off safari proved the most memorable for Scott, travelling with Brett and Chelle who had also booked this trip months in advance in order to catch the best tides of the year. Even Mark, with years of experience as a fishing guide in the Top End, was impressed by the huge fish.

Chelle proved adept at landing the metre-plus barramundi that had lined up to feed on the baitfish running on the tide.

As well as the giants, there are plenty of "average" sized barramundi here which would make many fishermen happy, but they hardly get noticed among the metre long fish
