We did this fishing charter early morning during the dry season. We learnt heaps about casting and fishing for Barra. Unfortunately we weren’t successful in catching any, but came home we two massive crabs for lunch. Very happy!! The sunrise over the water was beautiful!

Had a really fun day out with Carl, and four of us on the boat, all first timers at Barra fishing. Was a windy day so we started out for the mud crabs - hauled in a dozen fat and juicy ones, and somehow graduated to become a pro-crab-tie-up-er-er.

Spent the rest of day perfecting the old flick and wind technique. Donked a few heads in the process, and may my sunnies RIP lost forever in the depths of the West Arm... fish were a bit slow to bite but Carl provided plenty of entertainment in the meantime. Didn't go home til we landed a couple of Barra though - although undersize at least we got em in the end! Left home with a good sized cod and salmon too. Headed back happy and thoroughly soaked, though I'm sure Carl could've kept us drier if he tried harder. Hahaha

Got the local restaurant to cook up the crabs, and ate enough to never want to see another one... at least for a little while. We'll be sure to come back to you when we're ready for more Carl!

We did a half day trip with Carl. He was fantastic, very informative. We came home with a feed of mud crabs. The weather came in too rough to fish for barra. I would highly recommend going out for a half or full day with Carl. You won't regret it!

Carl is good and knows the water well, can remember all the crab pots he put in. If you have more time, do the whole day trip for Barra as well.
一次難忘的捉蟹半日遊,Carl 很熟悉逹爾文水域,知道哪裏有魚,哪裏有蟹。更難忘是新鮮泥蟹的鮮道,好正!
