THE Arnhemland Barramundi Nature Lodge reports excellent catches of barra again of late, with both big numbers and big fish encountered.
The Lodge’s regular client Steve Tatt arrived in late October with nine other keen anglers. They landed a creditable 433 barra and 266 other species over four days. Steve’s brother Mark was on his first barra fishing trip and was lucky enough to bag a metre-plus barra on his second day out. He did a great job to land it in a tight mangrove creek and, for the record, just to keep it all in the family, he was with Lodge guide Kane Tatt who is Steve’s son! Steve was also present to offer encouragement.
Mark Tatt’s terrific 107cm barra was his first metre-plus barra.
Paul Mood and James Hoar were among other Lodge visitors at the end of October. Fishing with guide Benn Boulton, they enjoyed some great fishing action mixing it with hordes of barra and plenty of blue water action, with scores of hungry queenfish and mackerel. They had a great 100-plus barra day on their third day fishing, before topping that off with some exciting action with GTs and golden snapper on the way home.
