Barra Time

Commitments with work and family have kept me out of the creeks of late, but finally yesterday I was able to get out for a decent barra fish.  I was Lucky enough to be able to take my good mate Pete out for a run with the goal of popping his barra cherry and we were not disappointed. We weren’t able to clock up a large number. This was not an issue though. Seeing Pete catch his first ever barra as well as  the quality of by catch that included my PB thready and Petes first triple tail, made this trip very enjoyable.

 

First for the trip 78cm

 

Petes first ever Bazz 82cm

 

Nice river Queen

 

Petes first Triple tail 68cm

 

My PB thready 109cm

 

72cm of night time bazz

Na sorry brucey no stories of misfortune, done a few trips now mate so think I'm getting better at eliminating rookie mistakes (always take a fry pan and check its not going to rain ;-).) water temp was 32 during the Arvo and dropped to 29.6 at night so pretty good really.
