Now that is a sad tale.
There are a couple of places in SEQ where you can fish in Barra ponds for a fee of course.
Pretty much guaranteed a hook up.

Barra or Bass Derek??
There are some dams in your area which are stocked with both, although why would you target Bass when there are Barra in there with them,
But the real essence of Bass fishing is being on a quiet little creek on just on dusk, piece & quiet, calm & dwindeling light then.....WHACK....CRASH....ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ,
been doin it for years & that surface strike still scares the sh#t out of me when I'm not ready for it Grin Grin Grin Grin

On another story, I was sitting on the bank one night with a mate just hav'n a beer & a break from casting, he had his rod tip hanging over a section of virtical bank & lure about 6" above the water at our feet, when this monster came up out of the water, SMASHED the lure mid air & subsequentially took off with his rod & all.

After I did a quick survey of the situation & a check of the undies old mates in the water after his rod back, now it's dark & he's done a flying entry into uncharted waters & is now reaching in & around a submerged log,
I'm rolling around on the bank in a fit of lafter!!!! Grin Grin Grin Grin

He got the rod but not the lure or fish.

You Gotta love the hardy little Australian Native Bass!!

Mick.

Hey Mick

It is much more fun working creeks and rivers for Bass.
Quite a few years ago I put a canadian canoe in below the Wivenhoe Dam wall and paddled to Lowood.
We only got 3 Bass in about 4 hours but they were a great fight and very clean fish.
All on lure.
