Good looking fish there Sooty.
I've only ever caught the one..in the dam at the back of my place(stocked).
No where near as big as that one of yours.
There's quite a few bigguns in Borumba Dam. 8 kilo plus.
Where did you get it mate.

No fish fry Reb. These fish are too precious to kill, a primitive fish that has a cult following.
See here http://www.dpi.qld.gov.au/28_14701.htm ;



Very much a cult following...they also taste like shite I'm told.
They are a cousin to the Barra..allegedly taste nothing like them.

You're a bit cagey about where you got it Sooty. Tongue

I have caught plenty of the northern variety in the gulf, heaps of bones, don’t know how you would fillet them.
Good fun fishing though. Smiley

No Relation at all Aart,  Scleropages leichardti is the scientific name for Saratoga while the  Barramundi is Lates calcarifer.
In the central QLD region, mainly the Firzroy, Dawson rivers and catchments the Saratoga was known as the Dawson River Barramundi.
Saratoga are a mouth brooder where as the Barra is not.

I can't comment on the eating qualities as I have never killed a Toga let alone eaten one.

Mate I treasure this location and guard it with my life. I have had so many requests from some of the biggest names in Fishing Magazine Writers over the years wanting me to take them there.

There are only 3 of us allowed to access this property, a luxury money can never buy only trust and respect can obtain.

Going back on Saturday for a couple of nights, hope to get a good mate hooked up to his first Toga.

It's no wonder Sooty is reluctant to promote the location of this spot. What a magnificent place to spend a few days, It really is a piece of paradise. Thanks again Kev.

The fishing was a bit slow. However 4 Togas were caught along with a few Sooty's. Got shown up by Sooty's young fellas missus' 700mm Toga. Any ways I still caught my first and I'm rather stoked with it even if it was a toy. (Mind you I'm stoked my Loomis is still a one piece).

The rocks really were nice with that chicken flavour to them.  Grin Grin Grin

Have a go of these photos. What a place!

Was a pleasure to have you Jono, call it a down payment for all the work you and Lucy do for Hedlow.

Sorry I couldn't connect you to more fish, though a few went begging   Angry>Sad  Next time hopefully, at least the Loosemus is still in one piece

Blue toothed those photos to computer last night but stuffed if I can find them, gone to that place where words go when you input them and the cursor is not in the right spot  Sad Sad Cry
