A Fishing World barramundi adventure Scott will not forget , taken into the huge barramundi tidal fishing world frequented by the Darwin Barra Base guides in the Top End.
|This 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
|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.|
Mark and Brett share a last photo before gently releasing the giant barramundi.
|The scene from the rear of the purpose built boat used by Darwins Barra Base to get to exactly the right spot for the action as baitfish make a break for open water on the turn of the tide.|
