Catching a Barramundi from the mouth of a creek after being flown there by helicopter has been on my bucket list for over a decade, so last week I went out with HeliFish for a full day’s fishing. A good mate an I were taken out to Anson Bay by pilot Tommy, and the service I received from both Mark and Tommy can only be described as second to none. These guys run a tight ship, and the condition of the helicopters and their local and technical knowledge make this obvious from the minute you sign up.
With plenty of Barra caught over the day, I managed a really fat 79cm in the morning session followed by a cracker 91cm over the lunch break. As I said to a mate on return, even if I hadn’t landed a fish for the whole day, the helicopter side of the experience is worth the money. The sensational and remote coastline, floodplains with bird and other wildlife, and the crocodiles too! Over the course of the day I managed to get some great footage posted on YouTube (theoffishalangler channel) as OFFISHAL TV: Episode 1 (In Search of Barra). Have a look at that and you will see how very cool this experience was.
Thanks heaps guys, as I say in the episode – this was the best day of my life! My only advice – do the full day, it is worth every cent.
