Hi couple of question how far are you willing to travel would be the main one, the dam that's firing at the present is Kinchant west of Mackay for barra it a easy dam to fish from in kayaks and you'll find nurmous reports here.
On the way you could also look at Lenthalls, Lake Awoonga, and Monduran but I feel if you after Barra Kinchant is the one too look at.

Don't know if you have already gone but one that goes well for plenty of barra is callide at biloela. Not far if you are keen for variety as you have a great bass and toga dam at cania or east to two of the big barra dams, awoonga and monduran.

I fished Awoonga at 10-11 xmas in a 14ft tinny with a 30hp yami and i was under gunned, the wind chop in that place is unbelivable, there is no way in hell i would fish it in a kayak, just asking for trouble. theres my 2 cents..

Also went Barra less. :cry:

Actually that trip made me stop fishing for nearly a year
