AN EXTREMELY unusual 1.16m albino barramundi was caught and released in the Proserpine Dam by Rod Sherrif while on charter with Lake Proserpine Fishing Charters.

Mr Sherrif was visiting the Whitsundays from Groote Eylandt (a small island off the Northern Territory).

Local charter guide and barramundi expert Lindsay Dobe said that after many years fishing the dam, he was very pleased there were still fish in the dam that could surprise him.

"It's very unusual to find a white fish this big, as they don't normally make it this size."

"They are very white so predators tend to find them a lot easier," Mr Dobe said.
