What size fish would you expect in the area you fish?

Looks like a great sport and food fish.

Our tropical North from the top of Western Australia to the top part of Queensland has saltwater crocs and as long as you understand that they're always there then you won't have too many problems.

The biggest I've seen is a 14' croc and they have a head like a backhoe bucket in width and very aggressive.
They'll take cattle, pigs and just about anything that they can fit in their mouths much like the Nile crocs you see on those African animal shows.

Barramundi do grow up over the magic metre mark and are all females as Barramundi like Nile Perch(a cousin to the Barramundi) change sex around that size so any big Barra are released. They fight like crazy at any size but the bigger models really go hard.

Where we're going (King Ash Bay near Borroloola in the Northern Territory) we can expect Barramundi up to and over the 1 metre mark along with Finger Mark Bream, Blue Salmon, Mangrove Jacks, Queenfish, Tuna, Trevally and outside Spanish Mackeral and Wahoo along with Cobia, Snapper, Jewfish and of course the ever present Tax Collectors.

Get on to You Tube and tap in Barramundi fishing in the Northern Territory and see what you reckon about them then also tap in something like Australian saltwater crocodiles.
