I couldn't expect much for catching a barramundi in my usual fishing locations because of too much water.
When the high water came, a sea water reached 8m.
The sea water ran throughout the mangroves in my usual fishing locations.
The sea water overflowed outside through the small creeks.
By this, barramundi scattered wide on shore.
In addition, it is too wavy to fish a barramundi on lures on shore in the afternoon in this season.
It is truly difficult to find a place to fish by land based, and still more difficult to fish a barramundi by land based in such a difficult situation.
I went to a saltwater pond where was not affected by the strong wind in the city.
I waded in the water.
Many snakes were slithering about on the ground in this water in March.
I didn't see any snakes this time.
It's a very dark night when the moon wasn't visible.
I used a variety of lures from which to choose in my lure-box.
A 90mm Mongrel produced two results from this trial.
A dark Mongrel in colour did good work in spite of a dark night.
I caught 38cm mangrovejack and 41cm tarpon on a dark-colour Mongrel.
I knew that mangrovejack was very good to eat.
But I released these fish into the water.
