Default Yay, got me boat back! Bring on the Barra

Well, after spending a year in the desert, I'm finally back near water and have got my boat back. Am on the Roper River for a year and am hoping to hit the water this weekend. Have not fished a river from a boat before and am really looking forward to seeing how the Lowrance shows the bottom in fresh water. Also haven't caught a Barra yet (very high on my bucket list) so looking forward to that too.

Boat has been sitting for a year in a mates back yard, then barged to the mainland from Groote Eylandt as well as being bounced all the way from the Gulf to Ngukurr so am hoping she still runs lol.

Now, to unpack the fishing gear and update Navionics - happy days.
