Over 50 Barramundi have made a long distance trek of over 700km from Lake Theresa to the mouth of the Fitzroy River. Now it is the turn for a Bass to make a similar long distance trek. This one was tagged in Lake Boondooma near Kingaroy in Oct 2006. Almost 7.5 years later it was caught in the Burnett estuary 320km down river from where tagged. To get there it had to go over 2 dam walls and 3 weirs. Just goes to show how strong the urge is in fish that spawn in the estuary to get there.
