Catching big barramundi in Queensland

Catching big barramundi in Queensland

Ryan Moody has been catching big barramundi in Queensland for over 30 years and has caught over 2000 saltwater barra longer than metre!

That’s well over 2 kilometres of metre plus fish, considering some are well over a metre as this next video shows.

And yes, in accordance with the law of diminishing returns, the last few metre plus barra have certainly been harder than the first hundred haha.

But a few good wet seasons should see the big girls back on the chew and see us catching big barramundi in Queensland in numbers.

We have also caught plenty in the 95-99 cm range, and at this size they are perfect acrobats with massive head shakes and spectacular jumps, as angler and fish struggle for supremacy.

Hope you enjoy our latest fishing action video, Big Barramundi #14.



If you enjoyed the video and wonder how on earth Ryan Moody has caught so many big barra, perhaps you'd like to know his secrets?

About The Author

Ryan Moody

Ryan Moody started his fishing career on the reef boats before catching bucket list marlin for the likes of champion heavy tackle angler Johnno Johnson, INXS and the King of Sweden. Branching out in the late 80's to guided barramundi fishing, Ryan has made a name for himself as a Big Barramundi specialist and to date has put clients onto over 2000 metre plus barra. That is over 2 kilometres of metre plus barra! With attitudes changing from 'keep all you can' towards catch and release, Ryan has decided to share his extensive knowledge and hopefully inspire people of all ages to get out from behind the computer screen/TV and into the fishing outdoors lifestyle he has spent his life perfecting.

    Blimy it’s been a long time since you caught the last 1m Barra, I thought that the competition was cancelled.I am thoroughly enjoying your work and pages you put up, each time I have a read I learn something new, wish I could get up there to meet you and Karen, there is always something getting in my way, $ & time, one day…..
    my guess for the 1m fish hopefully you catch it on or near the 9/10/16, just a wild guess.
    Keep up the great work
    Best wishes to you both
    John Howson
