Black bass lake turns it on!

THE recently launched sportfishing destination of Lake Murray in Papua New Guinea is fast gaining a reputation for its big black bass.

For anyone not familiar with the species, the black bass is recognised as of the toughest fighting fish on the planet and is known to destroy fishing tackle on a regular basis!

Big black bass are apparently in abundance in Lake Murray, the largest lake in PNG. The lake is located in the middle Fly District of the Western Province and covers around 650 square kilometres and can increase in size by up to five times in the wet season.

The lake’s highly convoluted shoreline is more than 2000kms long with numerous rivers leading into and out of the main lake. The grasslands and swamps surrounding it are home to a huge variety of wildlfe, and fish – as well as the mighty black bass, barramundi and saratoga can also be caught.

A recent charter group into Lake Murray landed over 220 black bass in five days with most reportedly in excess of 30lbs and a few fish over 40lb.
