As usual I Damian n Lloyd set out for barra fishing. Waiting in the star lit sky for the big monsters to move in . Seeing the mullets run helter skelter we knew that the predators moved in .A few cast later Damian got a hit before he could set the hooks the fish let go of the lure . The same thing happened on another 2 strikes. Hurriedly we changed to smaller poppers and on the third cast the line screamed out of the reel. I lost my nerve and tried to reel in the fish hurriedly then Damian asked me to cool down n play the fish n 3 min later the fish was out not a monster but enough to light a fire of hope that we will get the big fellows some day. But we scored well this month Damian 2 n me 1. We r amatures n open to suggestions n tips.

In Different areas in Maha people call them by different name commonly 2 IN mum by local -Khazara Costal Maha-Jetada. It is a real good table fish. N barra is in short for Barramundi a local to the Australian tribe.

Mario, very nice to see that you guys are scoring on the barra. Nice fish.

Please do not use SMS language on the forum, it's against the rules.

Cheers
