New to FFF - Barra at Sampan

Post by White Dingo » Fri Apr 29, 2011 8:44 am

Hello Fishing World.

Just to introduce myself, I'm 24, lived in Darwin for a couple of years - so can't call myself a local yet, originally from the South West WA.

I'm not an experienced fisher but enjoy a throw. Do most my fishing - land-based after work hours on Community trips. Umbakumba, Galiwinku, Numbulwar among others.

Caught my first Barra on Wednesday at Sampan Creek mouth, with Point Stuart Wilderness Charters. Got the 1st Barra in the first 15 mins - and it was a horse at 1 metre. Got another 3 keepers and a sea snake which was fun for Deano to get off. Will post the Bazza in the Horse Club later.

Looking forward to hiring a boat and heading out again soon. Sure to be asking a few questions soon so look forward to meeting everybody
