To bring out the potential of Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90mm
Barramundi #1182

I was hesitating to go fishing with my lower-back hurting.
On the other hand, I was panting to have a go at a new fishing rod.
I went fishing at Buffalo creek after work.
It was about 20minutes away from my place by my 150cc scooter.
Buffalo creek provides many places for the general public to simply enjoy fishing with ease and attract them to the fishing.
When Darwin had a small population, the poo-shooter brought about a good result of fishing.
This causes damage way more than it does profit.
I want to think that Buffalo creek is not what it used to be.
The tidal water was coming into the creek.
My new fishing rod is Samurai Refraction 6'6" Very Fast 10-17lb having a thinner and lighter constitutive elements.
Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90mm has achieved many good fishing results in my usual fishing locations.
I started using this fishing rod in order to bring out the potential of Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90mm.
I think that a fishing rod has a very significant leadership role to play in bringing out the potential of lures.
I have a big container full of lures at home.
In addition, I have many fishing rods.
The first tool I need to decide on has to be a combination of fishing rod and lure corresponding to the fishing location.
The second tool I need to decide on has to be a combination of fishing reel and line system.
As a result, I couldn't land a 50cm barramundi, but I could catch and release a very small barramundi.
It seems that my attempt has gone well in this case.
Not bad!

53cm Barramundi #1180
50cm Barramundi #1181
Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90mm

It was raining on Friday night.
The rocks were slippery at Myilly Point.
I was worried about the bad influence of the rain water to the seawater in my usual fishing locations.
My expectation came true.
I nearly fell down on the rocks.
I always walk with a stick during my fishing time.
There are several reasons for that.
I have a backache.
There is a danger of falling and getting injured.
Using the stick with a pipe and cap made of PVC 20mm in diameter, I can safely walk while recognizing the state around the feet in the seawater as a measure against stingray and stonefish.
As a result, I could catch and  release a 53cm barramundi on Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90mm.


53cm Barramundi



The next day, I went fishing at East Point rocks.
The seawater was 30cm - 50cm deep, very shallow.
As you know, Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90mm has gained an absolute trust in me in the case of the shallow-water fishing.
I caught and released trevally and barramundi there.
It is very, very important that the fishing rod must get along well with the lure.

54cm and 50cm Barramundi #1178-1179
Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90mm

I have gotten terrible lower back pain for a month.
So I'm wearing a belt for back pain in the lower back.
I feel a pain in the lower back each time a vibration transmitted to the lumber vertebra while I'm riding my scooter.
In addition, the heat makes me feel listless.
However, I still can walk so I won't be racked with suffering on the bed.
I want to go fishing!
I think that my passion for fishing barramundi on lures should be too strong.
My muscles weaken, but my passion for the barramundi fishing strengthen, with age.
Saturday, I went fishing at Channel Island.
There was a strong water current.
The water level momently changed.
The fishing spot having a productive fishing window changed 10 minutes by 10 minutes.
Unfortunately, I was caught in a badly calm water.
The shallow water was influenced by rainwater and fallen leaves of mangroves.
It happened just once.
A barramundi took my lure.
My lure was Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90 mm of green tinged with silver.
I hooked and landed that fish somehow.
My lower back hurt.


54cm barramundi


Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90mm

Sunday, I went fishing at Channel Island again.
Unfortunately, I was caught in a badly windy condition.
Immediately, I hooked a big fish on my lure.
A big fish swayed its head from side to side.
A big fish turned out to be a shark.
As ill luck would have it, I fought a hooked shark for five minutes.
My lower back hurt very much.
Worse, the shark took my important lure of Maria MJ-1F away.
After a while, I hooked a 50cm barramundi.
My lure was Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90mm of gold.

52cm Barramundi #1177
Squidgies Fish 80mm

Last weekend, I got over the peak of my work.
The busy work prevented me from going fishing on the weekend.
Tuesday night, I went to Mindil beach first.
It was very windy.
I heard the loud noise of the waves on the beach.
It didn't fit for fishing.
The wavy season lasts until the end of the wet season in my usual fishing locations.
I needed to go fishing at a location with less influence of strong wind on the wave.
I decided to go to a creek.
I walked through deep mangroves to the creek in the moonlight.
Without the moonlight, I will be lost in deep mangroves in the dark at night.
I dressed myself in many layers of clothing with a wish for protecting from mosquito bites.
It was hot and humid, and even if I sit still, I got sweaty.
I like the dry season than the wet season, because the former is more better situations than the latter in barramundi fishing by land based in my usual fishing locations.
I have found more comfortable and more better in my usual fishing locations in the dry season.
I know that many boat anglers have found more better in barramundi fishing in the built up season.
When I arrived at the creek, the seawater was going out.
We must look out for crocodiles.
The water current was very strong.
I used a sinking lure first.
But I didn't get any fish bites.
The water current was gradually decreasing in speed.
I used a Squidgies Fish 80mm having a Drop Bear colour.
Using this lure, I had a good result at this spot before.
As a result, I caught and released a 52cm barramundi.




Lure: Squidgies Fish

Size: 80mm

Barramundi #1176
Rapala CDX-7
Night fishing by land based

I found my usual fishing locations crowded last weekend.
We can say Million Dollar Fish has been an event with any sense of reality to it to many people in Darwin.
People are the fourth time in this Million Dollar Fish.
Million Dollar Fish has become close to people.
As expected, I needed to get out of the crowd.
I went fishing at night on October 17.
The probability that I can catch barramundi is high in the night time compared with day time.
There is a problem of mosquito in the night time.
Of course, we must look out for crocodiles.
I used a 7cm Rapala Count Down minnow.
The retrieve I use for Count Down minnow is a steady wind if it were usual.
I used it with a short jerking action, causing the lure to dart quickly and erratically to attract fish for catch at night.
The Rapala Count Down minnow is a hard body lure.
This method can be applied in soft plastic shad too.
"Easier said than done."  The beginners may well say so.
It sure is.
I saw a number of beginners in barramundi fishing recently.
They have to appropriately control a movement and colour of a lure in accordance with a situation.
However, it will get much more fun when they become able to do it.
I know, giving their best efforts will yield results.



Lure: Rapala XRCD-7

Size: 70mm

Colour: Glass Ghost

Where: Shallow water 50-70cm deep

Water: Murky / Outgoing

65cm Barramundi #1175
Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90mm
Barramundi #1176-1177
Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm
Cotton Cordel Red Fin 130mm

I'm not able to spend much time on developing new fishing locations.
But I went fishing at a new place on Saturday evening.
The results were not bad.
I caught and released 2 small barramundi.
Unfortunately, I couldn't land a 60-65cm barramundi.
I couldn't get close to the fish because there was much deep mud in front of me.
I tried to draw the fish towards myself by winding the fishing line out of the deep mud.
I thought that the 40lb leader line with the 30lb braid line has possibility that the line breakage occurs because the fish was quite heavy.
In the meantime, the 40lb leader line snapped.
I found the 40lb leader line frayed.
It seemed to me that the cut end of the 40lb leader line rubbed with a sand paper.
Barramundi has no sharp teeth but many sand-paper-like tooth.


#1176 Barramundi


Cotton Cordell Red Fin 130mm


#1177 Barramundi


Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm Rainbow Fish

I went fishing on Sunday too.
I hooked 3 barramundi but missed them.
I caught and released a catfish.
Finally, I caught a 65cm barramundi on Yo-zuri Pin's Minnow 90mm.
This lure is a floating minnow and can move lightly and lively.
I took the fish home and cooked into the fish and chips.
