I have been watching this thread for ages hoping to see a pic of the monster promised.  Looks like it will come from an unexpected source but looking forward to it all the same.

They are a mythical beast that doesn't exist.  I've seen plenty of fudged pics, and now I've even seen someone try to pass off a Mulloway with a rounded tail, as a Bass with a forked tail, but I have never seen a photo of a 60 and I'm starting to think I never will.  Childerfish's customer is obviously another liar.

Lol that one was funny, although I was prepared to give the guy the benefit of the doubt that maybe they just didn't know.  I have seen pics of a guy in Hong Kong who was catching Sea Bass (as they call them) and it looked a lot like a Jewie. Bass = Jewie.....  a stretch but there you go.

Ray: see the size of the lure that guy used to get that bass at the end.  Big Lure !!!

65cm bass at Monduran.
Wonder if it had whiskers and forked tail.
Cheers

I find it amusing when those having a vested interest in a business around a location are in talking up "their location" in fishing fishing reports... if you read the newspapers you see lots of it. You don't seem to read anything like "no fish here, don't come"


There are some nice bass in Monduran of that there's no doubt. It was a great bass fishery long before the barra took off. While doing months at Maritime College in Bundaberg we were out there after "school" knocked off at 3:00pm every day.


Anyhow, no picture = no cigar.  Just another "fishing yarn".......... And what a tale....a whopping 65er.  The way it's been fishing for barra lately I'm told, you'd be happy to get a barra that big, let alone a bass.

Agreed. Possibly why this thread was started in the first place.
