Big Barramundi 7 – Hinchinbrook action Autumn 2014

Bumper season so far for big barramundi despite some atrocious weather. Fishing has been outstanding with most fish in the past five weeks taken lure casting.

And talking about the weather, looks like a pretty crap weekend coming up so I thought I’d put together some highlights from the past few months for you. Big Barra 7 continues our big barramundi series with some heart stopping jumps and big runs.

The fish pictured above is a 108cm big girl caught last week, bringing us ever closer to the magical 2000th metre plus barra for clients. Boy will that be a party! Our current metre plus barra tally is just to your right in the sidebar of this post or underneath if you are on a mobile.

The Big Barra 7 footage featured in the video was taken in the last few months.

Recently water temperatures have dropped to 23 degrees so yes it’s official, winter water temperatures have arrived.

It is a bit of a fallacy that barra do not bite through the winter. This may be the case in freshwater dams but it has not been my experience in the saltwater although we do change our techniques a bit.

The following three photos, as with the one above, are just a few of the big barra we lure casted during the cold snap last week with water temps hovering around 23 degrees.

My son Jordan just missed out on the metre with this 98cm lure casted fish.

Typically unless water temps drop below 20 degrees, it won't deter the big fish so we are looking forward to some exciting big winter barra fishing ahead. Click here to make a booking inquiry.
