Husband and wife fisho's Col & Kylie are back on board with us this week fresh from their return from fishing the World Offshore Championships in Costa Rica. While the fishing in CR there may not have fired for the duo, the first two days on the river has seen them release well over 150 barra between the pair of them fishing with Capt. Luke.

A different class of fish but it doesn't get any better than when you can pull 80 off the flats in a morning session. Flats fishing = my favourite! (Kelly)

Well it was our first Mike Carney trip without Mike himself (hope you are on the mend Mike!) but we were able to console ourselves with some really good fishing. Both numbers and big fish AND variety! Brian joined us for the first time on the barra (after being back last year for the Billfish Challenge) and caught the biggest of the trip at 106 as well as several *almost* to the mark. And the jewies…what fun they were! ... See MoreSee Less
