Barra Bob's Big Red

Barra Bob's Big Red

My good mate "Barra" Bob Malden with an awesome Coral Bay Red taken in May onboard Sea Force Charters. For the record weighed in at 12.25kg. Hard to compare after catching one that big, so Bob says he will quit while he is ahead. (Bull Ship he will!!!)Hehehehe. Good Onya Bob, that's about as good as it gets.

Jealous!!

But it couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke. Well deserved in my opinion.

If you think I am a "Dhuie Master" you aint seen Bob!! The man is a fish electromagnet.... nothing escapes him... I've seen the proof.

Oh and if he looks familiar, Wangler did an article on him a few years back when he was a top Barra fisherman up in Kununurra.

Kununurra gun you say.;)

Tell him John Marshall (chalkie) said hello. If he goes who the f$%ks that, tell him we fished a bit together back in the days of the East Kimberley Game Fishing club. Used to hold the club meetings in the KDHS workshop (when Tomcat and Woody would drink bundy like it was cordial).

After Bob had his heart attack a couple of years back, I think the Bourbon was put on hold for a while, but I kind of recall that went down like cordial too. You top end guys take no prisoners do you.

Top fella old Barra Bob, I used to work with him at Bankwest. I'll pass on your regards Big John next time I speak with him.

"Kununurra Gun" well that's what he used to tell me...hehehehehe.
