    I don't know if anybody has used these measuring mats but they're pretty good.

    Well that's a good idea never thought of using a brag mat to measure fish before we must be a bit backwards down this way your far more advanced up rocky way.

    With the increasing size of fish in the net free zone here, there's been pressure on the fishing comp organisers to come up with some decent measuring mats. The old ones of 1200mm became too short particularly for king threadfin. Something like 35% of the threadies caught in last year's comp were over 1200mm. Some of the barra are too these days.

    Barra Jack's in Rocky has been most amenable to the suggestion since the discussion started about 2 years ago.

    Now, Steve Pill of BJ's has done something about it.

    If you want a decent brag mat measuring up to 1600mm (1.6m) that isn't covered in superfluous advertising or info, get onto Steve at barra Jack's Rockhampton.

    He's gone out on a limb a bit for the locals but I think that there might be a bit of interest elsewhere as well.

    Explains Barra Jack's reasons for bigger brag mats.

    Fishing comp on in the CQ NFZ at the moment.

    No metre barra on fitst day but 6 or so in the 90s.

    King threadie @ 134cm. 7-8 over metre.

    Results board a bit basic.
