Damn Hot!

Damn Hot!

The temperature is not the only thing heating up in The Mackay Region this summer, so too is the incredible fishing on offer in any one of the region's three stocked impoundments. Kinchant, Teemburra and Eungella Dams are world class fisheries and home to some of the biggest Barramundi and Sooty Grunter you could ever hope to encounter. These fish are legendary, iconic and firmly etched upon the bucket list of nearly every red-blooded angler in the nation and for good reason. Oh… did I mention that you don’t even need to be an experienced fisherman to stand a good chance at catching one of these brutes? If you’ve never caught a Sooty Grunter or you are fixated on catching that metre-plus Barra, there is absolutely no better time than now. Let me explain…

First and foremost, Mackay is an amazing city in its own right with brilliant natural landmarks well worth exploring by families and fisho’s alike, but more importantly its geographic location makes it absolutely ideal as a base to stage your assault on the dams. Seriously, I don’t know another regional city that can lay claim to being located within 90 minutes of three world class impoundments (allow a slightly longer travel time to Eungella dam if you are towing your tinnie or camper trailer). The close proximity to these angling mecca’s is a massive feather in Mackay’s cap.
