With all this wind we’ve been unable to go offshore so we headed to Hinchinbrook for a barra session.
Hinchinbrook is an amazing barra fishery and where I caught my 2000th metre plus barra!
The mud as it is only allows access to the boat ramp at certain times, so on this day we only had a three hour window.
Karen has been onto me to have a barra session and get some photos of barra with the new lures.
This was our first opportunity to do so as we have been a bit busy.
As some of you may know, we are opening a new online shop (if we can get the technology sorted).
Colin from Kuranda post office has kindly offered to store and ship our goods because we go away so often.
It will only be a small shop of some of my favourite gear. So far we have a two lures with more on the way.
I really hope we can get the technology sorted and get them out of my garage and into your hands soon!
Anyhoo, enough plugs – here is the video!
Fishing for barramundi at Hinchinbrook is one of my favorite things.
The scenery is spectacular! As the sun rises over the island it never ceases to take my breath away.
We like to describe the outside beaches by saying Jurassic Park meets Blue Lagoon.
Whereas inside in the channel mangroves abound and the barra fishing is superb.
