Only twelve days to go!

Hi guys!,


Only twelve days to go until the 2011 Xstrata Lake Moondarra Fishing Classic begins. It has been the talk of the town out here in Mount Isa for some time. You may notice I have included links to the official compeition website in addition to an outline and mud map print outs. If you have the weekend of October 28-31 free then consider coming out to Mount Isa for some great outback barra fishing (they say this where the true Aussies fish!).


Apart from the above there have been other updates on Eleven new albums and stories have been added, hopefully showing some of the characteristics of this unique outback location known as 'the Isa'. The recent warmer weather brewed up our first patch of rainfall in six months and fishing action has been on the rise. Some reports of metre barra have filtered in from locals. I hope the fishing action has been good for you all across NQ. Remember to follow the lead of members Norm and Shano and get your fishy pics on the site. Thats all for now,


See you all at the barra comp:D !!!!!!!!

2011 Xstrata Mount Isa Lake Moondarra Fishing Classic

Hi guys,

Its been a while between entries as I have been settling into a new life in the heart of Queensland's outback. There are a motherload of pictures and info banked up after several months of fishing in this new and rather different area. I aim to start getting these uploaded over the next few months. Thanks for your patience! and thanks for all the great contributions from site members Shano and Norm, some enviable results on the water.


If you can spare a moment check out the links I have added on the homepage for the upcoming 2011 Xstrata Mount Isa Lake Moondarra Fishing Classic. Most of this information was published in NQ Fish and Boat magazine over recent months. Take the time to browse through and consider keeping that weekend free (28th-30th October)- a great chance to see the outback and participate in a top event! (the mud maps are convenient one page print outs).


Hope you are all getting out on the water!!!

Regards, Dan

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Hey guys,


Its been a while between fishing trips from my end, we are snowed under with work here on the barra farm (7 day weeks). On my nights I have been browsing a few sites and came across the Townsville Fishing Forums. There was plenty of informative and constructive interaction between northern anglers here. If you want to improve your fishing skills or meet fellow NQ fishos, log on and check it out.



Thats all for now...fingers crossed we get some better weather and bring on the summer holidays!
