barra around darwin

Post by keenfisho24 » Sat Jun 08, 2019 7:37 pm

hey, i am looking for a good spot around darwin for barra in the dry season. i have tried buffalo creek, east point rocks, and vesteys beach many times with only the very occasional cod and queenfish. i have looked on google earth for some spots that look interesting, these include gutters behind coconut grove, the mouth of the small creek between darwin high and botanical gardens, drain behind university, mouth of sandfly creek and mouth of buff creek. i have heard of leanyer drains but heard it does not fish well this time of year. if people have checked out hese places allready please tell me how they went so i dont have to waste my time checking them out. :) :)

Seems to me you are asking questions at the same time as answering for other people.

"yes as devil said is a excellent spot. look for a small sand patch or mudflat on the incoming or outgoing. on the outgoing chuck some livies with a running sinker rig off the shelves for some good sized barra"

Two way street for giving information as well as asking :D

Why dont you just go back and try your lizzy river spot you reckoned that you landed a 110cm one at again....... unless you were just talking a load of :bs: BS back then.

( which is my suspicion ) :rofl:

Or you could just snorkel around and watch your pet croc ''joey'' at the marrakai track and see where he gets all his barra then just fish there.

Below the boatramp at middle arm is a rockbar that has a track through the mangroves to access it. I have got a few decent ones out there at night. Lots of snaggy areas and rocks to lose livies on though and the whole area around there is not very castnet friendly either, that's why I just run shallow lures out there instead.

Good luck..... it'd be great if you could put a pic up when you get onto one eventually.

Nope, by middle arm I mean middle arm. :banghead:

Below southport is another ramp which is where I was talking about. It's in the pretty much the opposite direction to Saltwater arm too BTW.

(Lower reaches of the Darwin river catchment ) :roll:

Mabye try fishing with "your mate max" if he's the East Pt. Guru that you reckon.

Or get a fishfinder mag and try some of the spots listed in there instead. This will now be the last bit of advice I'll be bothered to give you. Happy dangling ... :roll:

youre just a mob of nasty lowlifes that only know how to talk poop. i hear you talking about how hard barra fight. they fight p..s weak mate and ill tell you a queeny which is delicous will put up twice the fight of a bl..dy barra.

have any of you actually tasted a queeny. seeing you eat so much barra, im sure you know that there is no fish taste in the meat. so what your basically eating the fish to just shove something in your mouth.

Had a good think about just not bothering to respond to your peanut lure at all. But here goes nothing.

I just gave you some helpful tips purely based on the info you've supplied on here in the previous posts then you lose it over that. Nothing wrong with me mate you're the one playing and swimming with crocs at the marrakai track. :D
