We would like to welcome David Blackmore to the One Metre Barra Club with this classy silver 104cm Roper River Barramundi. David tells us he caught this one early in the morning and the rest of the day was slim pickings with only three fish to hand. He added ” When our first fish was 104cm we did not mind that much”. David caught this fish trolling a lure on a Xtreme XT Rod with a Daiwa Zillion 7.3 reel spooled with 30lb braid. Great first fish of the day David and even better as your entry into the One Metre Barra Club.
We would like to welcome our newest member to OMBC. Philip Watson enters the club with an “Oldie but a Goldie”. A 114cm fish that was caught in the Ord River in Western Australia. Philip remembers the fish but not the tackle his guide “Macca” supplied and it does not get more Aussie than that right! Regardless this put Philip in the club almost a decade ago and he had to scan his original snap rather than the digital stuff we have submitted usually. Welcome aboard Philip!
We would like to welcome John “Johnno” Marven to One Metre Barra Club with this nice 118cm fish from the May river in Derby, Western Australia. Johnno tells us that he caught this one amongst a bunch of others at this location. The top numbers 118, 102, 97, 95 all coming off one snag. He is not letting on of the location of the actual snag but he as been catching them on bait in the dirty water. Some great camera work caught these shots of him letting it go to fight another day! Thanks Johnno and again welcome to OMBC
