Assuming you mean Lake SOMERSET.....?

There are no barramundi stocked south of Maryborough, so no barra in Somerset. You should be asking the stocking group guys what fish they stock there. That should be bass, golden perch, silver perch, Saratoga and Mary river cod.

Land based angling is restricted to recreation areas. You can catch fish off the northern shore at Kirkleagh Rec Area if chucking lures. If you're drowning bait you can catch fish anywhere. Eg tilapia, spangled perch, tandanus, barred grunted, snub nosed gar and ,maybe a silver perch.

Go try it out, good luck.
