113kg Barra!

Got this via email today, apparently caught on the Fitzroy river and could not be released because it got attacked by a croc alongside the boat, massive!

I actually went fishing with these guys in 2009. The Actual place is called the Murchison Falls, Uganda. It's about a 6 hour drive through the bush from Entebbe. As stated above it is part of the Nile River. Its a wild place, hippos, crocs, buffalo and monkeys everywhere. The biggest I managed was a 22kg model.

Funniest thing I ever saw was that bloke with the long hair (the guide) walk through a bull ant nest and was covered from head to toe in them. jumped in the river with the crocs that were no more than 20metres away, stripped off naked and thrashed about until he got rid of the ants. poor bastard, just trying to get us on the fish haha.

I came home with some of the worst food poisoning of my life. never going back!
