Jason Kennedy

"I've fished for big barramundi from the Cape to the Northern Territory for the past nine years on my TV show Fishin' Trip with no success on the magical metre mark. However that all changed when we teamed up with Ryan Moody. We spent only one day with Ryan and we cracked the magical metre mark 3 times! We thank you Ryan for your knowledge, patience and support. You make dreams come true!" 

Jason Kennedy, Fishin Trip Presenter

Big Barramundi 5: Memory Lane

We thought we lost all our old footage in the cyclones... Then we found this! An undamaged Hi8 tape. Woohoo! Quick conversion to digital and we head down memory lane to the good ol' days. Even includes some of my good mate Ruffy (the one cackling at the beginning during the double hook up) plus some in water releases - Yes big barra do bite!

Big Barra 4: Slow motion jumps

Opening lines in this video come from one of our first time clients "OMG!!!! I've never seen a bigger fish!"  haha. I love it! Here in Big Barra 4 my video editing skills finally start to do the footage justice as I discover Slo-Mo! Those of you editing gurus will probably not be impressed with the repetition but I just could not help slowing down those big barra jumps and head shakes. 

Big barra 3: Double hook-ups.

Here we are again in the good ol' days of denim shorts and no grey hair! Big Barra 3 starts off with a double hook up of metre plus barra and the action pretty much continues from there. I think this is my favourite of the series, only because of all the anchor rope issues. Thank goodness for GPS anhoring electic motors eliminating the need for anchor ropes (most of the time).

Big barra 2: Getting old!

More footage from the seemingly indestructible by cyclones Hi8 tape.  If you have gotten this far you are a serious barra nut! If you prefer to watch me with no grey hair, watch on...

Big Barramundi 1: My first crack at making movies!

Other than some private ones perhaps hehe. No all jokes aside, Big Barramundi 1 includes the first lot of highlights from the indestructible hi8 tape, which inspired me to start making the clips on this and other pages. Hope you have enjoyed the trip down memory lane as much as I did!
