So I'd lined up Ziggy to hit up Middle Arm this morning to chase some barra, but when it rained last night, I threw the snapper gear in as a back-up plan in case the barra weren't playing.

Sure enough, the creeks were dirty and we didn't catch a barra all day, but we did soak a few baits on some likely looking rock bars.

A range of estuary bottom dwellers came in over the gunnels, but it was this mighty fish below that made me first get out the brag mat and camera.... :rofl: :rofl:

Later in the morning, on a new spot, I got the upgrade, and a different type to boot! :clap:

And eventually I got another upgrade - best fight of the day too! :lol:

Luckily Ziggy was catching goldies, so we managed to bring home dinner. :mrgreen:

Bit of a sureal trip - I don't usually let catfishs come in the boat, and here I was fussing over them on the brag mat taking multiple photos! Felt like mango madness. :D

cheers

Talk about letting down the balloon. What is the point in trying to catch a Powertail now? Powertail master, I bow to you

Lol. :shock: Nice fish Pony. So much for not being able to fish this month mate. :roll: Well done on a good win! :applause:

Just out of curiosity Matt. How are we measuring them. To the fork or tip??

It doesn't matter I guess as I would need one 45cm odd bigger then kurts to get him and unless I go to the Amazon that ain't happening!
