Time­less tale strikes a chord

Lion roars

We all grew up know­ing and lov­ing every line of every song in The Lion King, so when Bayn­ton West Pri­mary School de­cided to run a play based on the time­less clas­sic, it was al­ways go­ing to strike a chord with par­ents in town.

As the stu­dents belted out ren­di­tions of hits such as Hakuna Matata, Can You Feel The Love Tonight and Cir­cle of Life, there were plenty of par­ents, young and old, tap­ping along in sweet, sweet nos­tal­gia.

Fish tales

In the past few years we have asked many, many peo­ple for tips and tricks to catch bar­ra­mundi in Pil­bara creeks and it seems just about ev­ery­one has a dif­fer­ent opinion.

We have heard of every creek be­ing a hotspot, from the De Grey River down to the Ex­mouth Gulf, and ev­ery­thing from “yeah you can only get ’em in sum­mer” to “they are here all year if you know where to look”.

On tides, we have heard ev­ery­thing from low to high, and neap to spring.

We have heard morn­ing, af­ter­noon, evening and night are the best times to go and warmer and cooler days have them most ac­tive. We’ve been told lures work, as do soft plas­tics, and dead or live bait also work a treat.

Seems there is no se­cret to catch­ing barra, just a whole bunch of peo­ple who swear by what they caught one on the first time they hooked up.
