Bring on the autumn barra bite
  |  First Published: March 2017

This year so far has brought with it constantly high temperatures in the high 30s and early 40s. Many anglers are looking forward to putting the summer heat behind them and are welcoming the forthcoming cooler months.

Traditionally March, April and May are great months to target Monduran barra.

As the water cools the barra sense that winter is on the way, therefore their feeding habits become more aggressive.

Last year’s autumn and winter bite was the best I’d seen in my 11 years of fishing here at Lake Monduran.

Multiple bite sessions on big and small barra were not uncommon and bite times lasted throughout the whole day.

Surface lure action

A vast area of shoreline around the lake has a good, thick, healthy weed edge.

Certain areas have broken weed with plenty of fish lanes and clear water above the weed. These areas have been perfect for some topwater action. Surface lures have all been working well along with weedless-rigged lures.
