Dont worry about squashing the barbs, never done it or been asked to do it at the Barra park.

Dont even bother with lures, either take live bait or use the hooks and floating pellets they provide. Fish are tough on dead bait or lures as they are hand fed.

Just berley up with heaps of pellets and chuck your pellet with hook in amongst it when they start hitting the berley.

Never fished the eco park, but have only ever seen good reports on them. Its supposed to be a really nice spot to, good for families - the barra park is pretty stark, hole in the ground and dirt banks. Couple of shade shelters is about it.

Totally agree with the other boys. Pellets the way too go. Light flurocarbon leader, and really small hooks. Smaller the better. Chuck out a heap of pellets and put ya baited hook in the middle. As soon as they sink change the biat i recon. My best barra there was 88cm. Got a few last time i was there and a jew.
