TIPS FOR FIRST-TIME AN­GLERS

The Weekend Post - - News -

The best time to catch barra is at sun­rise and sun­set, when the bait fish are re­ally ac­tive.

Most barra will come into the shal­lows to feed at night, wet a line when the sun sets.

Look for shal­low weed-cov­ered wa­ter or small run­ning creeks.

Cast off “pres­sure points”, or head­lands.

Drop big live baits un­der a float about 70cm down.

Trolling is also pop­u­lar.

Or­gan­is­ers be­lieve there is a good crop of bar­ra­mundi hid­ing right near the Tinaburra boat ramp.

Sooty grunter, archer fish and man­grove jacks are also present.
