Done a runner from the lovely cold New England winter and exploring some of the outback Qld. backblocks.
Found a 1/2 decent bush camp spot well inland on the Flinders and found that these 1/2 decent barra are lurking there as well.
Now have the freezer nicely stocked and headed further west. Smiley

Wondered where you'd got to mikel... barra fishing eh. Don't blame you leaving GI behind, I came thru there a couple of weeks ago and the temp was single figures at 10.00am.
How long before you hit the home paddock ?  I'm going up to Casino next month for the Camp Oven Cooking Comp and was hoping to see you.

When I die I hope my missus doesn't sell my camp ovens  for what I told her I paid for them. pd

G'day PD.
Sorry to have missed you on your trip up to the HF meet. Hope the new van is all good.
Not expecting to get home before Sept. Now heading down to A/Springs then E across Plenty h.way back to Eromanga for a bit of excavator work.
Aart.
they were in a river hole off the road from Croyden running SW to Julia creek. A friendly soul in the pub mentioned how to get there. Evidently the wet takes them great distances upstream, and the last one was a good one.
That one was 78cm, 4 more slightly less. All hit the lure after no more than 5 winds on the handle! (or not at all!)

Top fish Mikel,
It looks remarkably clean & silver for a fish that came from an inland waterhole.

The 'ol Gold Bomber did the trick again eh!

That fish will be so beautiful to eat, so enjoy it mate!


Regards Skip Smiley

I take it that that's a freshwater barra???....... There's a few good spots on the Burdekin River near Charters Towers if your heading that way.
Top stuff mate! Grin
 

Bundy Rum........... not just great for breakfast!

Yes Skip & Porkhunt, they were in freshwater but I think would have got up there in the wet.
The buggers were hungry though, and thick juicy skinless fillets on the barbeque plate...... not toooo bad at all. Wink
Cant beat that shallow running Gold Bomber Skip. I always prefer a simple single bright colour over those flash painted up things a lot of blokes use.
Now camped at Tennant crk, not much in it though!
Mikel
