Let the 2011 Barra Games begin

Daryl Pervis with a Shady Camp barramundi, caught with Justin Jones of Obsession Fishing Safaris

Mad keen fishos from Darwin have been bypassing the flooded Arnhem Hwy to visit Shady Camp via the Pine Creek detour, and the results have been worthwhile.

Several metre-long barramundi were landed yesterday in the run-off from Cyclone Carlos. Here’s a good fish, by Daryl Pervis of Victoria, fishing with Justin Jones of Obsession Fishing Safaris.

Aerial photography reveals that Marsh Creek is flowing well now, but the Mary River catchment did not get as much water from Cyclone Carlos as the Adelaide and Daly Rivers.
