How do you choose the lure-colours in a barramundi fishing?
For most situations, I have my own rules.
- Match the lure colour with the water
- Match the lure colour with the structures in the water
- Match the lure colour with the bottom of the sea
- Match the lure colour with the bait
- Try the gold or silver in colour
- Try the chartreuse yellowish green in colour
- Try the white in colour
By looking at the sea-water condition of the fishing location, I'll give these above works priority.
It's a rotational system operation.
That's reason why I'm a frequent lure-changer.
I know from experience that this method pays in the long run.
Everyone has his own method though.
I went to Channel Island to fish in the morning.
The sea water was clear-murky and greenish in colour.
I chose a Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm Aussie Herring.
The sea surface was calmly rippled.
Therefore, I winded the fishing reel at a constantly slow speed without any fishing-rod actions.
As a result, I caught a 50cm barramundi.
