Fishing Darwin Harbour today, mixed bag

Post by Scamper » Fri Nov 04, 2016 9:36 pm

Went into a small creek of Middle Arm.
Good start to the day with 1 barra in the boat with in 1/2 hour.
Slow going till the tide came in, then a run of golden snapper, bream and small trevally.

Was busted of by a stonker fish, jumped 3 times clear of the water, ran a 100mt of line out.
As it was going away from me, only saw it's shoulders to tail.
I was patient and let it run with a big bend in my 6 to 8kg rod and 3/4 drag.
Leader broke in the end.
Mystery fish? calling it a barra, as with all fish I loose.

Some nice fish there for the harbour, well done
If there is water and it holds fish, then it is fun trying to fool them into eating what you offer!!

Especially when you can see them!
