First stop today was Barramundi feeding just up the road. Emmy and Chloe got to feed the massive fish with bait tied to a mini rod. It was a lot of fun seeing the fish take the bait.
Mataranka Springs is absolutely beautiful. The water is crystal clear and 33 degrees. It was so much fun swimming, floating and snorkelling. The only concern was being able to dodge the incoming bat poo from above
Showering at this caravan park was interesting as I had to go in and check the showers for frogs before they would go in. What do they expect for $25 a night?
Late afternoon I drove to the Roper River to toss some lures around for a barramundi. It was a very eerie feeling as crocs can be in the area. I kept looking over my shoulder at every little noise. Driving home at dusk was equally unnerving as I had to avoid cattle, pretty faced wallabies (real name) and a donkey on the road.
