Australian Bass Tournament Presents

2024 Venom BARRA Australian Open


The Venom Rods BARRA Australian Open heads back to Lake Awoonga in 2024 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.
