Most anglers have a 'dream fish' or place they would really love to go and fish. For Customer Barney his dream was to catch a big barra. Barney fulfilled his dream recently while he was in Darwin with his wife Irene. Barney was fishing aboard Vision Charters with skipper Ben when he caught these 2 rippers at 94cm and 95cm. These nice salties were caught trolling hardbodies around the Shoal Bay region just north of Darwin. Nice one Barney!


While Victoria has had a bit of a heat wave recently, it's nothing compared to the top end, where both the weather and teh fishing can be pretty hot.

Customer Andrew sent a photo in of one of his mates who has been doing some fishing out in Darwin Harbour.

Using squid for bait on a double hook paternoster rig a few different species were caught, including this slatey bream. Slatey bream are in the sweetlip family and they can be caught on a variety of baits and lures, and they fight very hard for their size.
