Marilyn Walsh with a 105cm barramundi from the Adelaide River mouth, caught with Top End Tackle World's 'Mulga"

Top End Tackle World’s Mulga said he took family members to the mouth of the Adelaide River and caught a 104cm and 105cm barra.
“One fish was hooked an hour before the bottom of the tide, and the other an hour later, by which time everyone had started complaining about the lack of fish,” he said.
“They were good fish but we had to work hard.
“The big Strada lures were trolled fast down the middle of one of the side creeks.
“You just have to keep on at it and, out of the blue, they just jump on.
“Once the tide pushed up hard the fishing was all over.
“There were a heap of boats out there but I didn’t see anyone else catch a fish.
“All the others were looking for clean water, which usually works, but the water we fished was like mud.
“There was a little bait around but not a lot. When it looks quiet, you just have to put your mind to it.”
