Barra Beware of the Lucifer

Barra Beware of the Lucifer

On Saturday and Sunday afternoon myself and my 2 mates targeted a regular creek in East Arm. We usually just go out for 3 hours and fish the last 2 hours of the run out tide. I put the Minn Kota into action and trolled up and down this creek in water between 80cm and 2.5 meters. Not only does it produce quality Barra but we always stumble across, Jack, Snapper, Cod, Salmon and Flathead. This creek has produced a number of Barra above the 80cm mark and I have even lost that elusive metery in this creek. Considering it only takes us 20 minutes to leave home drive to the ramp and cruise down the river we truly are blessed that we live in a great part of the world.

Our weapon of choice is always the Reidy's Little Lucifer! In my case I have always found that the Gun's & Roses colour produces best in the harbour. Over the weekend we landed 12 Barra and dropped 4 or 5. The Barra landed were between 51cm and 80cm. You can see in one of the photo's my Lucifer has coped a hiding and is missing a lot of it's paint from a solid harbour weekend work out. We are really looking forward to the new Reidy's Hellraiser hitting the shelf as I'm sure this too will also be a weapon of choice for future harbour trips! Barra beware!!

Little Lucifer strikes again

Little Lucifer strikes again

Clients and I landed a 96cm 20Lb silver Barra in the Rock Hole yesterday; and another 76cm Barra (pictured) on the straight floodplain channel at approx 1.30pm.

Using your fantastic Reidy's Little Lucifer Shad Lure, Dark brown & black top, gold sides and silver bottom.  

Despite many boats running and trawling and casting many areas at Corroboree Billabong over the weekend, it was a great gift for my clients, thanks be to God.

The Barra was skinny and the fight exhausted the fish out, it would not go back and kept flapping sick on the surface a 4.5 + Metre Crocodile came swimming aggressively towards us as we released it and it resurfaced rolling on its side approx 6 metres behind the boat it was a race between me reversing the boat back to net it and the Crocodile taking it; luckily we beat the Croc; and the clients had some great Barra Fillets for tea last night.  I figured better for them to have it than the Croc.  So seeing we were keeping it all on the boat got a photo with the fish.  I can imagine the fish stories that maybe developed around it?

They released the 76cm Barra that we landed later on. All on the boat laughed and kidded the client Don Goh as they stated they never heard of a Chinamen releasing a fish before, let alone witnessing it.

Kind Regards,

CATCHING FLATHEAD USING A REIDYS LURE

CATCHING FLATHEAD USING A REIDYS LURE

HI, STEVE HERE. I AM FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO LIVE IN BEAUTIFUL RIVER HEADS WHERE THE MARY AND SUSAN RIVERS SPILL OUT INTO THE GREAT SANDY STRAITS INSIDE FRASER ISLAND.

I FINISHED WORK EARLY THE OTHER DAY, SO AT 2pm I THOUGHT I WOULD GO FOR A TROLL AND TEST OUT MY NEWLY ACQUIRED REIDYS LITTLE LUCIFIER LURE. I HAVE BEEN HAVING GOOD SUCCESS TROLLING A SMALL PINK LURE, BUT THE LITTLE LUCIFIER WAS GREEN, YELLOW AND ORANGE. SO, I WASN'T SURE HOW IT WOULD GO. WELL, DID I GET A SURPRISE ! THE WEATHER WASN'T GOOD, A HOWLING NORTHERLY WAS BLOWING, BUT I KNEW A NICE SPOT WITH A BIT OF PROTECTION FROM THE WIND. I STARTED TROLLING WITH THE REIDYS LURE OUT ONE SIDE AND THE OTHER BRAND PINK LURE THAT I HAD BEING DOING SO WELL WITH OUT THE OTHER SIDE.

I HAD ONLY GONE 50 METRES AND BANG, SOMETHING SMASHED THE LITTLE LUCIFIER, A NICE 60cm FLATHEAD. AFTER A COUPLE OF HOURS OF TROLLING IN A 1km CIRCUIT, THE SCORE WAS: PINK LURE = ONE FLATHEAD, LITTLE LUCIFIER = 9 FLATHEAD, THE BIGGEST OF WHICH WAS A MIND BLOWING 90cm. THEY WERE ALL RELEASED.

YOURS TRULY,

STEVE DENTON
