Marou shares big barra secret every angler needs to know now

ROCKY music royalty Jeremy Marou has a hot tip for keen fishermen in the region.

Speaking exclusively to The Morning Bulletin this morning, Marou went off-topic from his upcoming performance and spoke about one of his other loves in life, fishing.

His tip was tonight is the night to throw in a line in the mighty Fitzroy River to catch a barra.

He said last night's full moon should see plenty of barra on the bite.

While we spoke to one keen angler who wasn't aware of the expected frenzy, The Bully's fishing columnist Scott Lynch said a combination of the moon and good tides would be what got people talking.

"People who like using lures will find it easier tonight as everything will be more visible,” he said.

"But every night is a good night for fishing and there will be some better nights ahead as it warms up.”
