Barramundi? Or is this a different fish species?

That first pic looks a bit like some of our White Perch in my area!

The other two makes them look more like our bass!

Looks like they would be great fun on flies!

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the video.
If you didn't have so many things that could bite/sting and eat me,I think I'd have a ball down there.
How big do your bass get?

They are a relative of the barramundi but don't grow as big. Lock up or loose with these fellas

I'm using a six and a eight weight depending on the fly.

I will be chasing those cod very soon for the first time.......they look like an awsome target in the sticks
