Wow Lee! What an adventure and that last picture makes me jealous. We worked with Barramundi at my lab for a few years, and they are VERY impressive. You could "feel" it in your feet when they struck. 85cm is a BIG one for sure. What did it weigh?
Cape man, we don't generally bother weighing Barra, just measure them. In the NT, 55 cm is the minimum (58 cm in my home State of Qld) and 120cm is max. size for keeping. We generally only keep fish between 65 and 85 cm.

1+M fish are everyone dream to catch and release. I've only caught one in 20 years but I don't specifically target big fish like some. I like to eat them as well as catch them. My PB on lure is 96 cm and 104 cm on live bait. We only cast lures these days.

The boys have a knack for making fish look bigger than they are. That 85 is a very nice fish - but it looks way bigger than that.

Here's another video from our recent trip to the Northern Territory chasing barramundi.
