Apex Barra Bash

More than 700 fishers, over 100 barramundi caught and one MAJOR prize won — it's safe to say the 23rd Apex Kununurra Barra Bash from 24 September to 26 September was a great success!

A huge congratulations to Steve Barnett, pictured above, who was the lucky fisher to claim the F370 Quintrex Outback Explorer top prize for simply buying a $60 raffle ticket and taking part in the Bash.

Although fishers had the option to fish anywhere in the East Kimberley, many competitors stayed close to town and tried their luck at Lake Kununurra to try land a 1m-plus barra.

Big barra are on offer in the lake thanks to a well-managed stocking program which has seen more than 1 million fish released into the waterway since 2013.

Recfishwest was proud to once again support the Bash and sponsor a Lowrance Elite FS 9 Active Imaging 3-in-1 Transducer for the fisher who caught the biggest barra on the lake across the three days.

Well done to Lake Kununurra Barramundi Stocking Group member and avid fisher Curt McCartney for taking out the lake component prize, after landing a whopping 111cm barra!
