G'day Matt and everyone else. What is involved to enter? And is there still
any spots available?
If anyone can't make it or needs a team member/deckie I'd be available and more than happy to oblige. :drinking1:

Might be full, but places will probably come and go with cancellations, call Aurora on 08 8979 0166

It was slow, most fish were caught at the mouth. There were fish on the sounder out front of Nourlangie, but very few fish were caught above the bridge.

Might pick up on bigger tides.

A total of 240 barramundi were caught by 35 teams at the Aurora Kakadu Klash fishing competition.
The event is the first big NT barramundi competition each year.
It was held at the South Alligator River over three days, ending Saturday.
No barramundi over the famed metre long were landed, with the biggest coming in at 96cm.
Of the 240 barra caught, 70 were entered as point-scorers.
The fishing was fairly slow, particularly on the final day.
The winning team was Guppy II, with Tim Pel, Chris Hunter and Marcus Penno registering fish of 94cm, 74cm and 73cm for a total of 241 points.
The best fishing in both numbers and size of fish caught was well downstream from the highway bridge, with only a few fish caught upstream.
The annual Klash sees each team registering their biggest barra each day using a digital camera to record proof of their catch.
Consistent daily captures are critical to win.
Competitors entered 200 barramundi over the three days at the previous year's Klash, with one fish over a metre captured, at 104cm, by John Fullwood.
