Fishing the Fitzroy catch up with Zac Moss - Barra Bash

Fishing the Fitzroy catch up with Zac Moss


We recently caught up with Zac Moss, about his big catch at last weekends Frenchville Sports Club Barra Bash, here is what he had to say -

"The inaugural Frenchy Barra Bash. Wow, what a great event it was. A very family-friendly oriented comp that was put together by people that love to fish. It displays the type of fishery we have access to in our backyard. There were big numbers of barra and king threadfin caught over the 2 days. The winner's Colin Brett and Micky Slade were on fire and took out the overall prize of most meters of barramundi. I was lucky enough to nail the biggest barra for the weekend. Thanks to barra jacks Rockhampton and all the sponsors that got behind the barra bash. Overall it was a great comp with plenty of lucky draw prizes great food and cold beers. I highly recommend it for people to jump on board and give it a crack its only going to be bigger and better next year. Well done to all participants and organizers for such a successful event. See ya's next year!"
