PNG Big Barra

Nick Wheeler from Singapore, with a massive 62lb lure caught barra! Pretty amazing by catch...?

Although renowned for its Black Bass populations, PNG also has a pretty amazing Barra fishery which is considered to be “By Catch”.

Nick Wheeler, from Singapore, joined us on our trip with Sport fishing PNG, and landed a massive 62lb specimen! Local guide Chris managed a 55lb fish, and my 99cm barra was dwarfed by these monsters.

  1. They’re nice fish. Barra only appear on the southern side of the mainland of PNG, but where the Barra stop the Spot Tail Bass start.
