We were trying for state record.

Planer mast is on the bow.

We run at 95 feet p&s. 3 lines

We use crankbaits that are like 14" long. Run at 3.5mph.

Here was the 2016 fish. We did not weigh, but the captain thinks it was state record material and one of the two biggest fish he ever had in the boat.

2019 is new boat

That was huge! Too bad it did not get officially weighed.

I love this photo!
Not me, but a couple of my mates fishing one of my favorite spots in the Northern Territory! :D

Two blokes fishing out of that little boat, "The Mini Tinny", boated 63 x barramundi on lures in 7 days. This was the best fish - at 93 cm, just under the magic metre! :lol:

A bull shark got the best of this one! :help:

No, heads without a body don't count in the possession limit! :lol:

Apparently it was used for crab bait - and was very productive! :D

The main commercial species of crab in northern Australia is the Giant Mud Crab (Scylla serrata).

Scylla serrata is an ecologically important species of crab found in the estuaries and mangroves of Africa, Australasia and Asia.

Today’s haul. Sheepshead. Good eating. Hard fighting. Tricky to catch.
