Build-Up Mania…But Where’s the Rain?

Build-up Barra Fishing is in full swing as we wait for a decent monsoon to arrive. In between the windy squalls, there have been bouts of blistering barra fishing in Shoal Bay and Darwin Harbour. The new Pro Lates Enticer Vibes donged barra to 92cm and some healthy Mangrove Jacks to 52cm recently. Land based fishing around Howard River Rock Bar has been productive particularly at night, with the new ChaseBait Drunken Mullets and Bills Bug fizzers doing the trick on legal size fish. The back side of East Point produced barra to 84cm on the trusty Killalure Barrabait in Red Bling.

On the reefs, Jewies are on the chew at Bynoe Mouth and some nice Snapper within the harbour. Amongst the reefies were Trout and Trickies for a nice mixed bag.

As we continue to pray for rain, we will keep taking advantage of ‘build up’ weather and try using it to our advantage!!
