Early Barra camping trip

Well jay and i are heading up to a good ol camp spot this weekend for a crack at some barra, althought the weather has been a bit cooler the last few days so i am a bit suss.  Will be good fun anyway and i will post some photos regardless, no doubt of jay holding a barra (hopefully he will let me hold it for a photo)
Anyway wish us some luck!
Might just be us jay, would be good anyway at least we could hike over and work some of those other holes and feeders

Yeah it has cooled down a bit since it first warmed up at the beginning of this month.

Weather outlook is positive though with 34 degrees forecasted on Friday and Saturday with 18 degree minimums, about 5 degrees higher than last weekend (it struggled getting over 29 on the weekend and reached 14 overnight).

Neap tides should allow the sun to warm it up a bit, with not as much colder water getting pushed in from the ocean.

Fingers crossed Brad, either way I'll have fun. If I've been catching barra where I took you on Sunday I'm confident we'll get some this weekend.


Can't wait.
