Monduran Anglers and Stocking Association held their inaugural Humminbird Lake Monduran Barra Classic on the 26th, 27th & 28th March 2021. Anglers travelled from all over the state and inter-state to compete for the $9200 in cash and prizes. The event was held in perfect weather conditions where the anglers competed in teams of two and had to catch a ‘bag’ of five Barra to be eligible for the first prize of $3000 cash. If a team caught more than five Barra, they could only count their longest five to contribute to their ‘bag’. Monduran Barra Classic
Twenty-six teams entered to showcase their skills. The event allowed for the everyday angler to test their skills against the best in the business with some of Queensland and Australia’s best anglers attending such as Craig Griffiths and Roderick Walmsley.Monduran Barra Classic
