64cm Barramundi #1089
Squidgies Fish 70mm
S-Factor

I caught a 64cm barramundi last Sunday.
I went fishing at Mindil beach in the morning.
The tide was coming into the shallow water.
The water was very murky.
The season has already changed from dry season to wet season.
However, barramundi were still moving about in search of jelly prawn around my usual fishing locations.
I put stinky smell of cream on a soft plastic shad lure.
This method is very effective for catching barramundi in the season of new jelly prawn.
One barramundi quickly took the soft plastic shad lure.
But I missed that fish.
Soon, the next barramundi took the same lure.
My fishing rod was vibrated by impact force in fish pulling and jumping.
You can watch that situation on YouTube.
Exciting barramundi fishing in the city beach.

By the way, I used the head-mount strap for Gopro Hero5 for the first time.
The image was swaying compared to the chest-mount strap.

I caught and released a small barramundi after that.
The rainy season will bring on mullet to my usual fishing locations.
I'm looking forward to that.

72cm Barramundi #1088
Mangrovejack #50-51
Squidgies Fish
S-Factor

Sunday morning.
It was a high tide in a big tide.
I was thinking about going somewhere today.
This time, the same as always, I can't decide where to go fishing at the last minute.
I must take the weather into consideration first when go fishing.
The wind was high at that time.
So I went fishing at the mangrove swamps.
5 - 10 millimetre new jelly prawn were splashing about on the surface of the water.
I thought that barramundi or mangrovejack were still moving about in search of new jelly prawn.
I am into Squidgies Fish 70mm Lime Lighting with S-Factor these days.
It is a way of dealing with the jelly-prawn season.
I had an intense fish bite when I was winding the lure along mangrove trees.
As a result, I caught and released two mangrovejack, a 72cm barramundi and three small barramundi there.

Boat fishing for the first time in one and a half years

We went fishing on Mr. Nick Paspaley's big boat for three days last week.
I fished on the boat for the first time in one and a half years.
I think you might know this already, my occupation is not a barramundi fisherman in the first place.
I usually work for Paspaley Pearling Co.
The first time I met Mr. Nick Paspaley was in 1988.
He is the first pearl producer to produce the world's best south sea pearls without any chemical treatments.
As you know, Australian south sea pearls are the most beautiful pearls in the world.
Now, the Paspaley pearl is about to branch independently into one of the successions of a pearl name.
Therefore, we are closely related to animal derived from seawater.
These 3 days were very fun.
We enjoyed mud-crab catching, reef fishing, barramundi fishing and tuna fishing.
Because of Mr. Nick Paspaley's guide those fishing all went very well.
I caught a big golden snapper on a 60g jigging lure with a slice of squid.
This reef fishing was required to be skilled in the technique of searching a productive fishing reef.






I caught a barramundi on a hand made lure made by Mr. Bill Jackson by trawling.






This timber lure caused an 'aggressive' wobbling action.
Bill Jackson makes his timber lures possible to create high-quality finished form.

I normally fish barramundi on lure by land based.
The best tide shifts with the best fishing point every hour.
On the other hand, the wind condition operates powerfully on the fishing result for good and bad.
Mr. Nick Paspaley also lightly referenced the wind condition when we were trawling.

Reel: Shimano Curado 300E 7kg drag
Rod: Wilson Live Fibre Territory Barra 8kg
Main line: Fins 30lb braid
Leader line: Schneider 55lb 0.80mm diam.

53cm Barramundi and 3 more small barramundi #1084-1087
Squidgies Fish
Zerek Live Cherabin
Squidgies S-Factor

Finally, I succeeded in finding a new way in the land based barramundi fishing during the jelly-prawn season.
We realize jelly-prawn are an indispensable animal barramundi cannot be without.
Though jelly-prawn are very important, they are annoying.
It sometimes occurs that barramundi won't take lures when they are moving about in search of jelly-prawn.
They will not design to notice lures.
We will get frustrated with barramundi in such a situation.
The seasons that have the large outbreak of jelly-prawn occur several times a year.
I think that jelly-prawn are in the end of the heavy-rain season, the beginning of the dry season and the beginning of summer.
It is very difficult for me to catch barramundi in these jelly-prawn seasons in my usual fishing locations because the large outbreaks of jelly-prawn occur in other locations.
Though barramundi are gone out, they are not all gone out of my usual fishing locations.
For when barramundi are moving about in search of jelly-prawn I found I were able, by nice adjustment, to get the good result from it.
It would be good if you use a fish gathering component which has a taste or  a smell favoured by target fish.
I usually don't use a Squidgies S-Factor for my land based barramundi fishing.
It was borne in upon me that a Squidgies S-Factor is very effective for catching barramundi that are moving about in search of jelly-prawn.
I caught and released four barramundi in this way on the weekend.

Barramundi #1083
Squidgies Fish
Jelly prawn season

The end of the dry season.
The seawater is warming now.
Barramundi are moving about in search of new jelly-prawn.
Barramundi have drastically decreased around Mindil beach, Fannie bay and East point.
Barramundi occasionally appear around Channel Island recently.
Last Sunday, the tide wasn't good for fishing barramundi at Channel Island.
I didn't have any choice so I went to Mindil beach to fish.
The tide was coming into the shallow water.
There were many rocks in the water.
The lures tended to be easily caught on rocks covered with oysters.
I wanted to try to use a Squidgies Fish 70mm with Lime-Lighting colour which Alex Murray used the week before at Channel Island.
Alex caught three barramundi by using a Squidgies Fish 70mm with Lime-lighting colour at that time.
It shaped like a small fish.
That shape is of no consequence.
Its colour and size are an important factor of that lure.
Barramundi probably mistake a Squidgies Fish 70mm with Lime-Lighting colour for jelly-prawn.
As a result, I caught and released a barramundi at Mindil beach.




Barramundi / September 17, 2017



There was only once bite of the fish.
That barramundi happened to be there.
Luckily, I could hooked him on my lure.
Such is the fishing.

The size of barramundi that I caught was 48cm.
He was what was called a rat sized barramundi.
I used a very thin fishing rod and a small fishing reel with a 10lb braid line.
It's fine with me.
I enjoyed it very much on Sunday.

68cm Barramundi #1082
Zerek Live Cherabin 100mm
Mr. Alex Murray caught 3 barramundi on Squidgies Pro Shad.

Barramundi are not often seen at Mindil Beach, Fannie Bay and East Point in September.
That's the usual at this time of year.
It is because barramundi are moving about in search of new jelly-prawns now.
Last Saturday, I went fishing to Channel Island for the first time in a while.
I thought, there was little chance that I could meet many jelly-prawns there.
I gave a Zerek Live Cherabin 100mm having a similar appearance to a large jelly-prawn a try.
I had my wish.
A strong fish suddenly carried out a Zerek Live Cherabin 100mm.
But the fish was firmly hooked on a fishhook.
The fishing line was strongly pulled by the fish.
As a result, I caught a 68cm nice shaped barramundi.

Zerek Live Cherabin 100mm

I was still so engaged when, Alex Murray caught three barramundi in succession.
He was so near that I could take some pictures and a short movie of his fishing.




Alex used a Squidgies Pro Shad 70mm / Lime Lighting colour




Alex's results demonstrated that barramundi were in search of jelly-prawns.
I know that barramundi like this colour very much.
This colour is also effective for catching a mangrovejack.
