Lagoon Barramundi on fly and soft plastics

I have been very busy around the house the last couple of weeks. And topped with the bad weather I have not been fishing. But I now have an extension on my patio and a cement slab for the boat. Fortunately, Ward has kept things rolling around here! Thanks Ward.

Well yesterday afternoon I managed to get in a quick trip to one of the freshwater lagoons. Ward and Liam came along too. We didn't leave Townsville until late, and were not fishing until just after 5pm. But it turned out to be perfect timing, and for the next hour managed 10 nice little Barramundi and 1 Spangled Perch. The Barramundi ranged from 30cm to 44cm. 5 of the Barra were caught my myself on Soft Plastics, Ward claimed 3 (including the biggest) and Liam 2. Ward and Liam were fishing fly.
