Day 2 of the "Pilgrimage" sees us another 400 miles to the west.

Overnight stop is the Barkly Homestead Roadhouse - in the middle of nowhere, a couple of hundred miles from anything! 8O

I got notification of CapeMan's post above and went in for a look. Interesting fish! Don't know what they are - but thought of piranha! :lol:

Then I looked at the posts above and wondered why nobody has asked, "What happened? You were on your way for your BIG annual fishing trip - then nothing, 'not a thing', 'nothing at all', 'nil', 'zero', 'zilch', 'nix', 'not a dicky bird', 'sweet Fanny Adams'"! :doh:

Two (2) months later, I think I have my PFSD (that's Post Fishing Stress Disorder) under control enough to talk about it. 8O

I wrote above about my 'former' fishing mate who fished the King Ash Bay area from a houseboat the week before my Brother and I got up there. Five (5) blokes on two (2) boats boated 300+ barramundi in 10 days fishing. Let's call that an average of six (6) barra each per day.

My Bro and I got up there a couple of days after they left. We fished all my favorite spots and many new spots. We fished here, we fished there, we fished everywhere. We traveled hundreds of miles and used multi-gallons of gas. We suffered 100+F temperature and dodged multiple thunderstorms.

In six (6) days of solid fishing we caught, not one (1), not two (2), but a grand total of three (3) barramundi ! :help:

At an estimated A$2000 per fish, they could be the most expensive barra the world has ever seen!

Barra season opens here on February 1 - I am having nightmares just thinking about it! :lol:

Top two are Blue Gill, and the bottom is a Red Breast Sunfish. All Centrarchids.

If I include the mortgage and dock cost they are also $2000 each! :lol:

Last thing a guy should do is figure out the price of fish per pound. Would make all of us sell the boats :help: :help:

70 miles offshore from St. Petersburg. Markin Fish Charters with Richard, his two children, two of his friends and myself. Limited out on Red Snapper and grouper. I put a little one in the box...
