Not a barra but ill take it.....

Post by 2 brothers fishing » Wed Jan 25, 2017 8:31 am

Went out to shady over the weekend to try for the barra but was pretty quiet so with a tide change coming up headed out for a jew... nailed this one in 4m of water and ran hard on barra gear...

There's a few reefs out the front you can find them in the fishfinder book

Excelent effort on barra gear mate. They pull some string in the shallows n don't get barotrauma coming off that area. Get any good goldies off it? we've only managed pan sized ones on that set of reefs out the front.
Tight lines 'n' keep the shiny side up people.

No goldies only cod and powertails
