Moon phase and barramundi

 Now getting right into my barra fishing I'm interested to here other peoples opinions about moon phases and there experience on barramundi. Reading on a N.T site a lot of people say full moon is better and I defiantly had to work harder for the one last night.

 I've only relied on the spring tides and not the moon.  I prefer the start of the incoming but a lot of guys here in Karratha fish the neaps and they catch more Barra than I ever will :)

Barra spawn there during the full moon, can be frustrating to see them but not interested in feeding

Big tides, no run no fun, fish the top of the tide.

Neaps

 Never fished springs, only neaps for barra. Took my lessons from Pilbarabrad. Know people that do well on springs though, never bothered re moons.

Depends where you are fishing. The river fishes well in the lower reaches when it gets a push from the springs, creeks around Broome are good either side of dead neap

For Pilbara fish, either side of a dead neap.
