Brian with big catch


There are many elements that can affect barra fishing including rain, wind, temperature and tides.

After two past unsuccessful trips to Darwin (not with Anglers Choice), Brian was desperate to catch a barra! He originally booked to join us at Dundee Beach to fish in March but the wind was playing havoc and there was no way we were risking a 3rd trip in harsh conditions. We both agreed we should postpone his fishing charter till April. 

Fast forward 30 days and we pick up a very excited Brian from the Darwin airport. The pressure was on.  It was on Brian who felt he was jinxed and it was on us and Guide Josh to help Brians dreams come true.  Brian had also refused to eat barramundi until he landed one himself.  Fresh Barra was on the menu that night, was Brian going to starve?  That was the question on everyone’s lips.

We are very PLEASED to announce that Brian has a full belly and joined the Barra Club with this very solid 90cm saltwater barra!!! He also landed some very respectable threadfin salmon around the 90cm mark.

Did we mention that this was Birthday celebration? Happy Birthday Legend, you earned that beer!
