This year’s Northern Territory run off was quite poor, with very little rain falling on the flood plains. In fact, if it wasn’t for a late monsoon burst, it was terribly close to becoming one of, if not the worst, wet seasons on record.

We all have our favourite type of lures. For some people it’s a paddle tail soft plastic or prawn, others it’s a hard body, stick bait, or popper. Usually these lures earn their favouritism from past captures as they bring a sense of confidence and reliability when catches are lean.

“Understanding the movements of barra during flood events will help the angler to more consistent catches”. I read these words more than thirty years ago and they ring true to this day.
