3rd & 4th DECEMBER 2016

2016/2017 BARRA SERIES

An unexpected heat wave had an effect on the fishing and the number of entries in Round #2 of our Summer Barra Competition held at Peter Faust Dam on the 3rd & 4th December. The competition start was delayed by 2 hours to avoid fishing in the main heat of the day.

Only 9 fish were caught in the 2 x 7 hour session on the weekend with all anglers using a variety of lures and styles to try to temp the fish. Unfortunately most attempts proved unsuccessful.

Jamie Sleeman & Shane Fahl caught 3 fish totalling 276cm and took out their second comp in the series. A new team to the series; Daniel Acton & Derrick Saw caught 2 totalling 198cm to take 2nd place and Ryan Murnane & Damien Casey finished 3rd, catching 2 fish totalling 186cm. 

Geoff Busbridge caught a 114cm fish taking out biggest barra of the comp.

Thank you to all anglers that braved the heat and joined us for what was another great competition.
