Lake Awoonga
« on: November 06, 2014, 09:44:39 AM »
The guys from Hook, Line and Sinker fished Awoonga yesterday.  They got 3 around 80cm and dropped another 3.  I have heard reports of other successes there recently too.  Let's hope it gets back to its former glory.

I fish because the little voices in my head tell me to.

Somebody must have about 3 years ago looking at the size of the fish.

Gday 
Is kayak ok or do you bass boat to cover more distance . Looking at barra fishing in fresh water. What line and leader is recommended? I got a 2-4kg graphite rod with 10 pound braid and 10 pound FC . And a 4-7kg rod with 12 pound super PE 15 pound FC leader . Any good or need something heavier?
Cheers Joseph

I have only had the one successful hook-up myself, and have no problems with anyone who knows better correcting me, but I would think from a kayak that your 4-7kg rod is fine. I think your line may need to be heavier. I used 15lb braid, and your trace needs to be a lot heavier. I was told to use 60lb mono, because the line will be cut if too light. I hope that helps. Also, if you want to use the kayak and are worried about the distance, try Kinchant Dam, near Mackay. My wife and I both caught Barra within 300 metres of our campsite. ( mine went 94cm and hers went 110cm ) It's a long way from Ipswich, but it is the only place we are interested to go back to.
Cheers
