Last year at the Keep River estuary, a guesstimated 107 cm barra caught on a hollow belly. Too heavy for me to lift out of the water.

Keep river fish looks bigger then 107cm. My guess is more like 115cm. Great fish either way.

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!
