I got up early and drove about 200km to go for a fish today.. the Northern Territory is all about the Barramundi. The NT Governemnt has tagged a heap with $10000 tags, and a few with $1 million tags. This is a tourism promotion and gets a lot of people trying for the ‘million dollar fish’… I didn’t get a tagged one today (didn’t even get a sized one) but caught about 20 Barramundi over a few hours…
I spent a lot of $$ on the suggested lures, but got them all on old lures that have been sitting in my tackle box for years!!

Sometimes fish will hit the strangest things. I’ve had fish eat a plain gold hook before. Looks like a good time!

Amazing journey! Makes me want to do an Oregon Outback trip real bad. When you have time, which Sony head unit is that? Thanks for including us in your travels!

Well the kids have flown home now and are getting looked after by their Grandparents, so it is just my wife and I travelling… We have been out of phone range for most of the time, but have so far crossed back into Western Australia, camped at ElQuestro Station on the Gibb River Road and the Bungle Bungles, and are now starting a few nights at Cape Leveque…. Since the last post, we have travelled about 2700km!!
The ambient temperature for a lot of yesterday’s drive was over 42 degrees, and the 60 felt it… I am re-thinking the big front-mount Intercooler as I think it blocks off too much cooling… When the trip is over I might remove it and de-tune the engine a bit to run it without the cooler….
Here are some pics!! (I caught more Barra too!!!)
These are from ElQuestro
