One of the best things about barra fishing at Peter Faust Dam is the consistency of big fish. On average, Luke guestimates that almost one in every 5 barra caught is over a metre. Already in 2021 we’ve notched up some stonkers with the biggest 116cm one of several over 110cm.
And its also an awesome dam for variety of techniques. We can catch them on the surface (sight casting), jerk baiting in heavy timber and vibing, fishing weed edges as well as shallow points.

Massive thanks goes out to Luke from Luke Fallon Sport Fishing.

It was an incredible experience to target barramundi for the first time, as these fish have been at the top of my wish list for quite some time.

Luke’s knowledge of both the species and their feeding habits, coupled with exceptional skills using his Garmin electronics gave us the upper hand finding and landing these fish.

I highly recommend Luke to anyone interested in targeting barramundi, I will definitely be returning. Many thanks!

It’s Luke’s knowledge and attention to detail in which he has gained from year’s of experience that has made him into such a top Barra angler.

I have learned so much from fishing with him over the years.The level of professionalism that he puts into his fishing operation is second to none.
