This is a pic of a Saratoga. These things go balistic and jump out of the water when hooked. Very popular with the fly fisher's. We catch a fair few on hard body and soft plastic lures. they are a surface feeder. This would only be about half the size they grow to.

This one is a Yellowbelly. Part of the perch family of native fish here. The pic is from a few years back. thats my son with his bigest fish ever. The next pic is of my boy a bit older and a lot wiser in the fishing game with his NEW BEST EVER fish. It,s a meter long  Barra, caught a ferw weeks ago.

hope you enjoy the pics.

While Im at it I may as well post a pic of a barra we caught this morning. Ben is new to the area and by a chance meeting I discovered he is a keen fisherman. Haveing never caught a barra before I offered to take hime out to see if we could add barra to his fishing list.

We done it tough with 5 fish hooked but every one of them cleared the water shaking there heads and managed to throw the lure. Finally in around 4 foot of water in standing timber Ben nailed this fish. Took some getting in as it stiched us up in the timber fairly good but with a lot of luck we bullied it out and now Ben has a new species to his list.

Awesome pictures!!  I wanna come visit! (long swim :'()

Those fish get really large.  When you said twice as big, I had no idea you meant that big!  I'm surprised these aren't a more popular gamefish.

Keep em coming!

Darren,

GREAT pictures! Those barra's look aggresive. I may have to hop on a pane sometime and add those to my list as well. What area of Australia do you fish?
