Fishing Billabongs with my daughter

My daughter has been nagging me for weeks to go fishing. Even worse now as she is on school holidays. So tides were not really in our favor, with just me and her going fishing. We thought a local billabong as its easy to get boats in and out. Decided to go half day with a 5am start and as she was still sound asleep putting her into the car.


As we approached the boat ramp not long after the sun arose. I sussed out the water and height of the billabong. It looked somewhat shallower to previous years I fished it. Getting the boat off and on the trailer was hard as the water was level with the bottom of the ramp. Made it hard to launch with out going to deep with the car.

Once on the water I moved across to the electric ‘Minn Kota’ to stat our hunt for the Barramundi. Wasn’t long before K-wee hooked up to her first Barra for the day.


Stoked she was one up and already her taunting of me for not having a fish yet had started. K-wee was running a Mad Keen vibe ‘Red Devil’ color which looked pretty and slayed another 4 Barramundi before midday. Releasing barramundi highlighted in the video the safest way up here. I had a decent fish on but lost him at the back of the boat which was my own fault due to running light leader to gain more strikes from the fish hiding in the structure.


K-wee is starting to get he bug as she wants photos with majority of her fish. I have made a quick video of our day with a couple of fish that K-wee caught hope you enjoy as much as she did.
