John Ogrady barra

Check out keen angler John O'Grady with a solid 91cm, 15 kg Maroochy river caught Barramundi. John caught it land based on 20lb line with a 20 lb leader on a recent overnight session and it put up a solid 15 minute fight. This awesome fish was released after a couple of quick pics, to allow another angler the ability to catch it one day. Well done mate.
