56cm Barramundi #1115
Samaki Boom Bait 4" Bomb Shad

January 13, Saturday, I went fishing at Channel Island in the morning.
The tide was going out.
The sea was calm.
I used a top-water lure of Lucky Craft Sammy 115mm for barramundi.
I hooked a nice sized barramundi but couldn't land him up.
And then I went straight to East Point too.
The tide was coming into the shallow water.
I caught a 56cm barramundi on Samaki Boom Bait 4" Bomb Shad.
This was my first time using this lure.

71cm Barramundi #1114
Squidgies Fish 70mm
8m tide

The tides were very big, with the 8m tide, on January 4.
I went fishing at Channel Island.
The drift of the tide was very fast.
The situation of the seawater was changing every minute.
The best tide normally shifts with the best fishing point every hour.
However, the best tide shifted with the best fishing point every 15minute at that time.
The seawater came up to my knees.
The seawater was murky.
I was casting lures while being cautious about the oncoming of a crocodile in the shallow water.
The productive fishing window was very short when the tides were very big.
That was a once-in-a-short productive fishing window.
Adding a scent of Squidgies S-Factor as a fishing attractant to my soft plastic lure, I caught a 71cm barramundi.






71cm Barramundi / January 4, 2018

I used a small soft plastic shad lure of Squidgies Fish.
Ultimately, the success of the land based barramundi fishing in my usual fishing locations depends on the casting distance of small lures.
The very thin and strong fishing line is very helpful and useful to my land based barramundi fishing.
As fishing tools improved, I can enjoy my land based barramundi fishing.
Light and durable fishing reel and rod are very helpful to me too.

59cm Barramundi #1113
Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm
79cm Barramundi
Mr. Shane Oliver
ZMan 3" MinnowZ Swimbait

It's not a good weather on January 1 in 2018.
I went fishing at Channel Island on January 2.
It's a calm weather.
I couldn't land up a nice sized barramundi because the braid line broke with a snap.
I didn't notice that the tip top line guide of my fishing rod broke.
It too often escapes my memory.
It's a windy day on January 3.
I went fishing to Channel Island again.
The seawater was not so clean.
The tide water was moving quickly.
I used Squidgies S-Factor which contains a mix of attack and feeding triggers that will help you catch more fish.
S-Factor is more than a scent or masking agent.
As a result, I caught a 59cm barramundi on Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm Aussie Herring.
It's this year's first barramundi of mine.

My fishing friend, Mr. Shane Oliver, caught a 79cm barramundi on ZMan 3" MinnowZ Swimbait Morning Glory.

The colour of "Morning Glory" probably would be effective for the dirty water.

51cm Barramundi #1112
This year's final barramundi

The seawater had much freshwater in my usual fishing locations after the heavy rains.
Barramundi wouldn't bite my lures firmly.
I hooked but missed one barramundi.
Finally, I caught a 51cm barramundi.
I used Squidgies S-Factor.

Barramundi #1109
Squidgies Fish 70mm
Too much fresh water

Good monsoon rains will bring about a very good barramundi fishing in the dry season.
On the other hand, the heavy rains that accompanied strong winds during the end of December is interfering with my land based barramundi fishing.
Even if the wind dropped, there would be too much fresh water in the shallows just after the heavy rains.
Most barramundi of costal waters tend to stay in deep waters just after the heavy rains.
That's why it will be very difficult to catch barramundi on lures in the shallow waters just after the heavy rains.
There are exceptions to every rule.
Regardless of that situation, a fickle barramundi sometimes comes into the shallow waters.
I went fishing at Channel Island and luckily hooked two nice sized barramundi but couldn't land them up.
As you know, barramundi can live in a freshwater area, a blackish water area or a saltwater area.
Barramundi try as much as possible not to drink fresh water in a fresh water area.
Barramundi try as much as possible to drink salt water in a salt water area.
They won't suck lures in a vigorous manner in the shallow water just after the heavy rains.
The fishing hook will be easily slipped out from the mouth of a fish in the shallow water after the heavy rains.
I also went fishing at East point.
In this case, I luckily caught a small barramundi and released him into the water.




Barramundi / December 28, 2017




Squidgies Fish 70mm / Lime Lighting / Jighead 1/6oz #1/0

I used a new fishing reel this time because I bought a new Shimano Chronarch G 150HG recently.
This reel has a very good casting distance.
I used a Surfix 832 20lb braid line for this new reel.
My land based barramundi fishing is totally supported by the advancing technology of these fishing tackles.
Recently, these technologies themselves have greatly improved and are becoming an important factor in my land based barramundi fishing.
