A taste of the North
Went off for a short family trip to visit the little sister in the Northern Territory of australia.
Was hoping to get in on some Barramundi action but the beginning of the wet meant that many inland estuary systems were closed for for flooding and croc safety reasons.
So the 1st 3 days of the trip were spent driving around and making little notes on where to visit at the end of the wet season.
The last two days however saw me landing my first fish in the nothern Territory. Two mornings spent in the Darwin harbour (one with Justin and Jake and the next alone) accounted for 18 fish in total.
So the trip's tally ended as such
15 Queen fish ( I will never tire of catching thses babies)
1 Bat fish (weird little buggers but couldn't get a photo)
2 really undersixed barra (couldn't get a photo either)
was hoping to take more pictures but the heat sort of rendered my camera brain dead.
I did, however, manage to save a couple of shots of the queen fish that were landed.
