Heat is on as the barra start to bite

Pilbara News - - Sport - Pe­ter de Krui­jff

The blow may have dropped off the past two weeks for an­glers, but the heat has started to set­tle in with tem­per­a­tures around 40C this week­end.

The barra have started bit­ing in places such as Air­port Creek and Cos­sack, but they are still elu­sive. Live bait sounds like it has been do­ing the trick. It was a bit windier this week­end than last, but plenty of folks still tried their luck out on the wa­ter.

New to town, Mad­die Bo­ord from Cairns went fish­ing with her dad off Dampier at the week­end and reeled in the big­gest Span­ish mack­erel she had ever caught, mea­sur­ing 140cm and weighed 18kg.

That will make a lot of fish curry.
