Slow fishing at the Baratta's

Dad and I took the tinnie down to the Baratta's on Saturday. The plan was to fish the entire day for Barramundi before the closure took place Sunday. I have never been to the Baratta's before, so it was also to be an explore and adventure. But the fishing was slow to say the least. I'm not sure if it was the lack of experience in the system or just that the strong winds had put the fish off, but we barely turned a scale all day.

I managed one small Barra (the one in my fishtank at home is bigger), one small Jack and one soapy Jew. Dad managed a few cod and a Barra....couda. BUT, we did manage to take home 5 Muddies!!! Our best effort yet!


And FYI, the ramp down there is fantastic!! 3 lanes with a floating pontoon in the middle. And while navigating the mouth is interesting, there are some markers that run a fair way out that indicate a channel. With a little local knowledge, you could get a big boat out fairly easily. Something I will be keeping in mind for future.
