Roper river barra

Post by jnea6 » Tue Nov 17, 2015 8:14 pm

After catching hundreds of harbour Barra l could not crack the meter, but then I went to the roper. My first metery was caught at the end of a trawl,the boat was in neutral and my green bomber was hitting the bottom I ripped it in until it was of the bottom and slowed it down 10mtr from the boat, that's when I saw the biggest Barra l have caught take the lure in front of the motor and take off.
The last morning we used the min Kota for a flick before we had to go back, that's when I had a hit, after catching lots of fish in a couple of days I called it as a powertail, it just slowly came to the boat. Then I saw her and she saw me and all hell broke loose, a new pb again 111 cm, she was caught on a small tiger lily bomber.
