Quick comment: Remote Top End fishing for Australia’s most iconic sportfish at its very best! We had a 100+ barra day casting hard body lures, then the next day trolled the rockbars of a nearby river mouth for barra close to a metre. Crocs galore, which weren’t afraid to occasionally steal a hooked barra too.
