Yak angler bags world record barra

In the wake of the devastating floods that continue to ravage south-east Queensland, comes some welcome good news from the region – in the form of a meritorious catch.   

In late December, legendary kayak barramundi angler Denis Harrold (and mate of Fisho’s yak fishing specialist Dan Bode) landed a monster 134cm barra at Lake Monduran. The fish reportedly weighed in at 44.62kg, on officially calibrated ANSA scales. The huge barra’s girth measured an incredible 107cm. The capture is currently a pending world record. If the record claim is verified, Harrold will have smashed David Powell’s 1999 IGFA All Tackle barra record of 37.85kg by nearly 7kg. What’s more, he did it from a kayak.

Boasting two weeks of red hot , pre-Christmas fishing action at Lake Monduran, Harrold  and his ‘yak fishing buddies landed dozens of barra over a metre using plastic baitfish imitations and recorded six fish over 123cm during a particularly memorable 48 hour period.

Congratulations Denis, that’s a record that’ll be hard to beat.

What's your reaction?
