What do I do if I catch a Bundaberg Toyota Golden Barra Tagged Barramundi?
The Prize Claim Verification process is as follows:

- One photograph, close up, of the Prize Fish tag.
- One photograph of the Participant holding the Prize Fish showing the location in which the Prize Fish was caught.
- The Entrant must not remove the Bundaberg Toyota Golden Barra Tag until all photographs are taken and the photographs have been verified as readable by Lake Monduran Holiday Park. If the Bundaberg Toyota Golden Barra Tag is covered in algae, please remove the algae taking photographs.
- The Entrant must not clean, gut or scale the fish prior to taking the photographs and must leave the Bundaberg Toyota Golden Barra Tag in place when taking the photographs.

When do I receive prize money if I catch a winning fish?
What if I catch Bundaberg Toyota Golden Barra tagged barramundi outside the competition dates?
How do I release a fish to ensure it has the best chance of survival?
- Minimise handling time out of the water (leave the fish in the water in the landing net until you are ready for a photo or in a holding tank with water from Lake Monduran).
- When holding a fish support its weight horizontally with both hands (don’t hold a fish vertically by its mouth or gills)
- Don’t lay a fish on a hot surface or allow it to thrash around on a boat’s deck.
- If possible release fish into cover along the bank or in snags to provide protection while they recover.
More tips for catching and releasing fish:
- Minimise capture time; use only tackle that is appropriate for the size and species of fish being targeted.
- Use fish-friendly knotless landing nets to minimise injuries such as skin abrasions, fin damage and protective slime loss.
- When bait fishing, use large non-offset circle hooks (minimum 5/0) to reduce the capture of smaller fish and deeply hooked fish
- When a fish is deeply hooked cut the line close to the mouth and leave the hook in place.
- The use of barbless hooks helps when releasing fish and reduces the damage caused.
