it can't be a sand bass. the caudal fin and rear dorsal fin are different. they do however match up with a barramundi

It's a barra. No doubt about it. They'd do ok in there over the warmer months, but the cold knocks them over stone cold dead.

Should be a few in the Hazelwood pondage that would have kicked on. Dunno if anyone has but.

Planned to hit Rowville at some stage over the school holidays, but I won't hold my breath for any Barra.

Hey all :)
I went there late this afternoon to give it a short go, sun was going down but spent about 30+ mins getting used to a new fly rod i picked up today. It was a nice afternoon but for me it was more testing then anything else, didn't see anyone with any fish but there was a good number of people there. I didn't fish the big lake just the smaller one so i had more room around me.
May give it another shot after work but i'll see what happens tomorrow.
