Tough fishing breeds tough anglers

Peter Beherens of Team 13 Fishing holds up 95cm of Teemburra barra, the biggest for the comp.

Round 2 of the MTA 13 Fishing Barra Team Summer League kicked off at Teemburra Dam 18-19 October 2014.

The pre-fish had been tough, with most anglers through the week reporting the odd hit and lost fish with not many barra boated. However, that did not deter the anglers with 30 hardy souls turning up for what turned out to be, as expected, a tough comp.

Before Sunday morning’s 2nd session started at 07:00, a truck containing 9,000 barra fingerling was parked at the boat ramp. Most of the guys fishing the comp along with a few boats from MAFSA distributed the baby barra around the dam.
