Channel island is good, you need to go on a spring low of 2 or 1.5m for barra, at the start of the bridge walk under on the left hand side and walk out to the rocks, fish hour before low and hour incoming, use zerek prawns or white squidgys or livebait, don't be scared to flick in the shallow drain, they will be there.

Palmy side of the bridge or the island side?

Either side. Heaps of good spots to choose from around there.

Marrakai track was rat city a while back there would still be a few left in there as well as the odd better one about 60cm too. If you aren't chasing a monster head out that way, its a bit of a nice drive anyway.... take a 4wd. .if you intend to go through the whole track. Its full length is 50km approx of dirt with a 2 small creeks and the Adelaide and margret rivers to cross: off the Stuart hwy its 20km to the river or 30km of dirt if you come in off the Arnhem hwy.

Anything in a small 8cm hard body , natural bait fish colours lobbed into the rapids should see a few barra hits the rest is up to you...

Tight lines 'n' keep the shiny side up people.
