Join Us for 2 and 1/2 Days in the best Barramundi Fishery in the State

The first Rocky Barra Bounty was due to be held in 1998 however flooding in the Fitzroy River in September that year saw the event cancelled and it did not start until 1999. It has been held every year since then during September/October with the exception of 2010 where flooding forced the organisers to hold a limited off river event.

The Bounty is a tag and release event and was the first event to introduce photographing then releasing of fish instead of having the fish weighed or brought back to the event site. This was initially through supplying a disposable camera but technology caught up with us and now an iphone/android app is used.
