During a trip in late March to Australia's Northern Territory, I targeted barramundi in three very different ways: by boat in Bynoe Harbor, by helicopter in the feeder creeks east of Darwin and out of a luxury bush lodge farther to the east, near Point Stuart. Barramundi pop a bait like snook and jump like tarpon. In appearance their silvery scales remind me of poons, their shape — snook. But these mild-tasting fish also sport pale pinkish/reddish eyes in some lighting situations. They can grow to more than 100 pounds.
