Winter barra on the bite
  |  First Published: July 2016

Mild winter temperatures through June have produced some great fishing on Monduran. While the majority of barra being caught are around 40-60cm, there have still been some bigger fish hitting the decks.

Through the warmer months we target barra primarily in the early mornings, late afternoons and through the night. The benefit of chasing barra through these cooler months is that we can target these fish from the first morning light right through to sundown, as barra will hunt baitfish in the shallows for a long period of time.

Winter is also a good time of year to practice a stealthy approach as you don’t want to spook schooled up barra and put them of the bite.


Hardbody lures like the Jackall Squirrels, Jackall Smash minnows have been working really well on a dead slow retrieval rate. Soft plastics like the ZMan 6” SwimmerZ and the 110 and 130 Pro range Slik Rigs have also been working well also on a dead slow retrieval rate.
