When you take a photo of a huge 118cm Barra that you just hauled in, you might want to check the back ground of your photo first. No we are not talking about a huge croc about to sneak up on his boat……….more so the Bong sitting next to him on the back seat of the boat.
Now as much as people would like to show off their catch to whoever will look, I’m sure this photo that has now gone viral may not be the type of publicity young Matt is after. Well I guess he was fishing in a billaBONG.
The Northern Territory News thought this quality barra catch have been helped by the use of some special technology, so they consulted a fishing expert, who theorised that the mystery piece of equipment could be used to simulate the sounds of schooling baitfish and attract predatory fish to the area.
“Perhaps it makes a bubbling sound which simulates schooling baitfish,” he said. “This would in turn attract larger predators like big barra to the area.”
With that in mind here are a few more fish attracting prototypes
