Australian Bass Tournament Presents

2023 Venom BARRA Australian Open

Scoreboard blackout effective from 9:00pm AEST 26th Feb 2023.  Next scoreboard update will be at 9:00am AEST 27 Feb 2023 following the presentation and crowning of the 2023 Venom BARRA Open Champion Team  



The Venom Rods BARRA Australian Open heads back to Lake Awoonga in 2023 for three nights of BARRA fishing action.

This is a 100% payback event. 


With Lake Awoonga's barra fishery developing nicely, there’s plenty of fit, fat and feisty barra in the metre-class that will make the event very fishy and with live scoreboards, very exciting.


Give your family, fans and sponsors great value by being involved in the extensive event coverage.
