    Re: Ausfish Barra Diary

    Mondy over the last week...11th to 18th

    I seen some awesome action from Barra boils to hard hitting smash and grabs to complete free jump...

    In my eye's the huge amount of Gar in and around the areas we all seemed to be hooking fish was the give away Bird bay weed beeds fleeting gar free jumping barra and many fish commiting to Sp's slow rolled from a foot of water toward a mored boat.... B bay points gar working in schools and the barra coming on in small wave one night trev and myself mannaged to hook 4 fish in a bite period of 20 minutes all just before dark, again slow rolled SP's in the timber got a few fish on Xrap worked very hard on the second pause od 4 to 6 seconds and also worked on points in B bay....

    plenty of cast plenty of action not many committed fish but enough to keep the arm rolling over and keep the lures in the wet stuff..

    So Nath, you are a soft plastic convert now?

    You said 'got a few fish on Xrap worked very hard' meaning you were working the X Rap hard? or it was hard work to get an interest in the X Rap?


    The fish were in small waves at night. So were you flogging the plastics at night and HBodies in the light?

    Hey Dazz
    Mate the night Trev and I fished pepper, it seemed the fish where in transition, moving around the point in small waves of fish 3 or 4 hence why in the one period we got 4 fish in 20 minutes after many casts prior.

    The X Rap well I cast it out useing a realy violent retive mixed with pauses up to 6 seconds then a hard 5 jerk retive then 7 seconds 3 jerk I found on the 5 jerk retive the moment it paused the fish hit....

    That is the same pattern and near enough the same place as the session had there with Nagg about a month ago where I hooked the big girl on the chartreuse tail drop bear only to have it spat back, but it confirms the system works .

    You just have to be there when they are passing and present something that takes there interest.

    Cheers

    Chris
    Yes I would like to see it happen too as I am only a novice when it comes to the Majestic Barra and I would love to learn more on the techniques of catching them.
    Cheers

    Re: Ausfish Barra Diary

    We fished Mondy 23rd - 26th (am) - Various locations were fished in light to strong NE - N winds. ( mornings calm) - Water temps ranged from 24-29C.
    11 barra landed ( low 90s-low 100s) ...... on 5" hollow bellies & 110 slick rigs.
    Probably 12 fish were lost to line failures , stitch ups , jump offs. No particular location or time prevailed with fish caught / encountered in 5 locations between 6am - 8pm.

    Chris you have to be happy with that!

    Interesting no location or time preference. When they are on they are on.
    The calm before the storm?

    And volume more so than size, interesting again? It just goes to show you eh

    12 lost to line failure? Are you doing up the drag with pliers again?

    Thanks for report.

    No Daryl .... 12 lost (approx) ..... 3 fish lost to line breakages ( faulty braid) 3 stitch ups & the rest jump off , pulled hooks, leader .

    & yes ,,,,,, came on pretty well right through the day with a 3 from 3 fish landed (11-12.30pm) probably the best ...... then we had a 8-10am session with 3 landed 2 broken main lines & 1 lost at the boat while waiting for the net that we never had followed by a 4-5.30pm .... 1 landed , 1 jump off , 1 pulled hooks & 1 stitch up ...... these were the most active periods.
