Cracker Barra

Thanks Phil for a great trip to Shady Camp!
Had a magic time with plenty of Barra caught each day!!
Your guide Jason was putting us on the fish with great results incorporating freshwater & saltwater to give us an amazing tour!
Would definitely book with you again next time!
Your organisation of our Barra tour was second to none!

Thanks Phil. The trip was rated very good over all. A couple of days for a couple of boats were a bit slow but the guides were great and worked hard trying put us onto fish.

The cooking was fabulous although it was mentioned the crabs would be better done in salt water

I think a couple of our group may discuss going back with their family in October

Happy to look at your suggestions based on best fishing tides and available dates for next year. We hear the best tides get snapped up pretty quickly.

We did it tough but I expected that. Laurie and Carol were good fun, Laurie was the lucky one with jewfish over the meter and a 68cm barra, he was chuffed. I got a queenie over the meter and a 45cm barra and 46 cm jewie. I always have fun and would dearly love to fish the runoff next time.
The accommodation at Dundee is excellent and the meals were fab!!
As usual Geoff Corry your fishing guide was fantastic as too were your arrangements!

Anthony Douglas, received a great 50th Birthday surprise Barra Tour from his wife and daughter and we joined him up with Gary & Allan Beer and one of our top fishing guides Peter Barnes.
 Over-nighting on Peter's mother ship Beagle Gulf, Anthony was certainly not
 going to be out fished on his 50th birthday, catching this very nice Barra
 along with several others.
 With all the excitement Anthony only managed to pose for one good photo.
 Another man of few words, but we understand from a family member that
He Got the surprise of and had the time of his life!!

Gary and son Allan Beer,
Gary’s 14 year old daughter Laura actually won a 5 day Barra Tour in the Horsham Fishing Club’s annual March 2018 competition.
After some undisclosed heavy negotiations with Dad Gary and big brother Allan, Laura gave them the prize and we took them to Dundee Beach / Finniss River in October 2018.
As very accomplished Fisherman they really cleaned up with some fantastic Barra and Thread Fin Salmon catches.

A plethora of species for the good doctor!!
All your arrangements were excellent and there were no hassles. I had a very enjoyable time at the lodge, whose hospitality was outstanding and I was very comfortable there. I managed to catch some fish, including Saratoga which was my goal, thanks Phil.

Well over 100 mixed Barra and Threadfin!!
There never seemed to be a time in our boat when someone didn’t have a fish on. 4 Metre plus barra were hauled in as part of the total, not bad considering the season was meant to be a bust with next to zero run-off. Thanks Phil for getting us hooked up on such a great trip.

Had a fantastic days fishing the blue water with Jarrod! Metre plus Jewfish, Golden Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Grass Emperor, Nannygai etc!
 Barra fishing a bit slow, but not surprising with no run-off this year!
 Dean worked hard for us each day trying different things! The Mud Crabs we caught were a tasty bonus! Accommodation & meals at The Lodge of Dundee were spot on!! Kevin, Robert Josh and Phil
