Favourite Barra Outfit: A Shimano Curodo 200 E7 Matched with a 6kg Wilson live fibre Territory

Favourite Barra Lure: 2 Lures, both made by Reidys lures in Darwin a standout for me, the versatile B52 for the saltwater and estuaries and the reliable litter Lucifer for the freshwater billabongs

Favourite fishing location: NO Doubt about IT Shady Camp because you know you always have a chance for that big one. Its remote and wild location, teaming with bird life and monster crocodiles makes Shady camp one of the Top Ends 'MUST DO' adventures.

PB Barra: 120cm 25kg (55lb)

PB Guided Barra: 118cm 20kg (44lbs)

Best Day Guiding: One morning at Chamber Bay 3 Clients managed to land 22 Blackjew, all 12 -15kg and well over a metre in less than an hour. After this amazing hot session the clients were exhausted so I decided to head to the mouth of Sampan Creek for some relaxing trolling- not to be, the boys were again 'smashed' a 96cm, 99cm and 101cm Barra were landed.

Most amazing Adventure: Cage Diving with great white sharks off port Lincoln SA
