58cm Barramundi #1207
55cm Barramundi 55cm
Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90F

When I'll decide where and when to go fishing, I determine the direction of the wind at different tides and then drive my scooter in the direction I want to go.
I think that barramundi aren't active in the chill of early morning in our dry season.
After all, I came to Myilly point rocks on Saturday of June 15 again.
The water was slightly murky.
The water was so shallow 30cm deep.
There were many rocks covered with many small oysters.
I decided to use the lures in my lure box in rotation.
I used several lures but had no fish bite.
Last Saturday, I caught a 61cm barramundi after sunset on Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90mm Floating having a white-silver colour.
By effectively using a fishing-line slack, I used my fishing rod.
That's why it's important to know in how the fishing rod is selected.
As a result, the same lure did work this time again.
I caught 58cm and 55cm barramundi.
I decided to take a 58cm one home and release a 55cm one into the water.
There is a certain time when a certain lure is popular among barramundi.
That is like to last for about three weeks.
There are, indeed, exceptions.
After all, barramundi fishing is a game that has an element of chance.

61cm Barramundi #1206
Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90mm

Saturday June 9, I went fishing at Myilly point rocks.
Small baits are on the alert for the enemy in the very shallow water in the daytime when the water is very clear in slow tides.
I'm sure you're thinking to yourself, 'Why is this guy making such a big deal of this?'
But make no mistake.
This is essential.
Therefore, sea-barramundi dare to approach the very shallow water in the daytime under this condition.
However, they must eat to live.
As a result, I caught a 61cm barramundi on Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90mm after sunset.




This is an approximate trend with a lot of exceptions.
By the way, I normally use a 20mm X 1m PVC pressure pipe to lean on as a walking stick because this pipe is light and durable.
I thought that a light weight walking stick was better for walking.
That cannot be said as a rule on the rocks.
I learned that from Kelly Davies of Moment For Life Physiotherapy.
My left knee has been wobbling because of a painful injury to my left knee joint by a rapture or tear of its ligaments due to traffic accident three months ago.


Thus, the PVC walking stick with a water in it can be supported my body, the subtle balance is maintained at the foot even in the case of losing a balance in rugged easy-to-slip place like a craggy place, and falling is prevented.

Barramundi #1204
Yo-ziri Pin's Minnow
53cm Barramundi #1205
Yo-zuri MAG Crystal Minnow F85

It's very windy day on Sunday of June 2.
The Mindil water has  relatively calm waves in dry season even if the wind blows harder.
It's as a result of the wind direction in dry season.
I went fishing at Myilly point roocks.
The water was very clear.
I couldn't think that barramundi have a high activity in that situation.
I thought that barramundi wouldn't take a big lure.
The water depth was about 40cm - 50cm.
In addition, there were many rocks covered small oysters in the shallow water.
Of course I would use a floating lure.
My choice was a 90mm Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow having a shiny green colour.
I needed effective 3 twitch-and-1 pause retrieves for attracting barramundi.
I hooked 2 barramundi but missed one of them.
The level of the water had risen by 10cm - 15cm.
The water became slightly murky.
My next choice was a 85mm Yo-zuri MAG Crystal Minnow having a shiny red colour.
I neededd effective 3 twitch-and-1 pause retrieves again.
As a result, I caught and released a 53cm barramundi and missed a small barramundi.
As I wrote, in recent years, the number of barramundi visiting the Mindil beach rocks and the Myilly point rocks for chasing their baits have decreased greatly.

56cm Barramundi #1201
Barramundi #1202-1203
Yo-zuri MAG Crystal Minnow F85
Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm

Saturday May 25, I went fishing at Myilly point rocks.
The sea water was very clear at the outgoing tide but very murky at the incoming tide.
Using Yo-zuri Mag Crystal Minnow F85, I caught a 56cm barramundi and a small barramundi.



56cm barramundi



Yo-zuri MAG Crystal Minnow F85



Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm

I took a 56cm barramundi home and released a small barramundi.
In addition, using Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm I caught and released a small barramundi.
I thought that barramundi is not suited for the sashimi with soy sauce and wasabi.
But this was the first timeI found out how to deliciously eat barramundi's sashimi with soy sauce and wasabi.

  1. Bleeding fish as soon as it's caught is important in preserving the quality of the fish meat.
  2. Ice the fish immediately.
  3. Sprinkle sea salt on fish fillets.
  4. Keep fish fillets in the fridge for one night.
  5. Cut with a very sharp knife into slices.
  6. Eat sashimi with chilled soy sauce and wasabi.


On the other hand, using Kewpie roasted sesame dressing, you can deliciously eat freshly caught barramundi in sashimi.


I'm very careful about freshness and hygiene with the raw fish.

54cm and 52cm Barramundi #1199-1200
Reidy's Junior B52
Zerek Flat shad

I went fishing at Mindil beach rocks by my 50cc scooter on May 19. It was windy but the sea surface was not wavy in the dry season here.  That is different from the wet season.  The water was very clear.  I came to the edge of the retreating water, and wading a little way in, I saw many stingrays swimming in the knee deep water.  I walked in sliding steps so that I would not step on the stingray with foot.  I was stung by a stingray while walking in this shallow water in the night before.  I feared I should die at that time.  The water was colder than I had expected.  It was not too much to say that the water was a first-rate-clear water.  A colour called Kryptonite of Reidy's lures is a natural for the first-rate-clear water.  I used Reidy's lures Junior B52.  A good-quality fishing reel having a high-gear ratio has a good command of Reidy's lures Junior B52 in a knee deep water.  I used Shimano Antares DC (Digital Control) MDXG (Monster Drive Tuned High-gear ratio 7.8) as a fishing reel.  As a result, I caught and released a 54cm barramundi.  In addition, I caught and released a 52cm barramundi on Zerek Flatshad 85mm.

54cm Barramundi #1198
Squidgies Fish 80mm

Saturday May 11, I went fishing at Mindil Casino rocks in the late afternoon.
The another name of Mindil Casino rocks is Myilly Point rocks.
The tide was coming in.
The water current was flowing slowly.
Barramundi didn't respond to any hard-body lures.
They wouldn't take any soft plastics of equal to or 10cm.
I used a 8cm Squidgies Fish having Lime-Lightning colour with a jighead.
It seemed like barramundi had no odd feeling to this 8cm soft-plastic shad and slightly bit it.
It wasn't easy to hook the barramundi.
When a barramundi is cautious, I use a steady retrieve for a soft-plastic shad without any actions.
I tried several times.
A barramundi suddenly took my soft-plastic shad.
I have become enslaved by a sudden strike or pull of the barramundi since I caught a wild barramundi the first time I tried it.
As a result, I caught and released a 54cm barramundi having a beautiful silver body.




Lure: Squidgies Fish
Size: 80cm
Colour: Lime Lightning
Jighead: 1/8oz #2/0
Where: Shallow water 30cm - 50cm deep
Water: Murky / Incoming
Line: Surfix 832 20lb
Leader:  Black Magic Leader 50lb
Knot: The Albright Knot
Reel: Shimano Stella 2500FE
Rod: Shimano Raider Kayak 601 Spin 1-3kg 2-8gm
Clip: Force ten Stainless Duo Lock Snaps #2
