A 131cm barramundi caught on a Roper region coastal creek this week. Seven over a metre taken. 280 barra all up.

Crew included Brendan de With, son of AFANT president Warren de With, and former FFF Awards winner Richie 'Richieboy' Lucker, who apparently caught three meteries.

So where's the report Richie? :lol:

More pix and info to follow.

Please put the boat away now fellas and let everyone else have a go ...

Yep, a dinosaur ...

Here is the story from Brendan ...

"We went to a creek near the Rose River, a baby creek out that way, we were casting around where there was just a little fresh coming out at the bottom of the tide, which was attracting some bait.
"We made sure we kept casting all day, we worked hard.
"We sometimes cast for two hours straight without a fish, but once we worked out where the fish were we stayed put.
"Five meteries were on Stradas and two on green Bombers.
"We got a 131cm, 114cm, two by 105cm, two 103cm and a 100cm.
"My mate Warwick got two, Richie got three and I got two.
"We stopped counting at 280 fish - we lost count.
"But it was not easy fishing, we started at 6am each day - we went for a week - and Thursday, the last day, was the best day.
"We found the fish and worked them out a bit and it worked.
"We caught 10 or 20 in the 90s and 40 or 50 in the 80s.
"It took eight hours in the boat to get home.
"The big one was a nice healthy fish and it got itself right out of the water - we got to see some awesome tail-dancing.
"And it went straight back in after the photos.
"We launched at Roper Bar Caravan Park, the bar was on 500mm, we were actually going to drive to the Moyle River, but because of all the rain changed our plan to the Roper.
"The Roper River itself was really unproductive - there has been very little rain and the netters are hitting it.
"We did nearly 900km on the boat to get the fish.
"We caught no other species - we were hoping to hit the islands but it was a bit rough."
