The weather smiled on me.
The tide was going out.
The sea surface was calm, therefore, barramundi would be very cautious.
I waded in water below knee deep on a mud-flat.
I cast a Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm Aussie Herring and retrieved it without any actions.
A 62cm barramundi took it.
I used a very long spinning rod so that barramundi couldn't easily escape from the fish-hook.

The tide became lower continuously.
I cast a Rapala X-rap 10 Green around the rock-gutters.
This lure flied gracefully!
The rapid twitching movements of this hard body lure brought me a 69cm barramundi having a very wide body.

Rapala X-rap 10
I used a long-light spinning rod and a small spinning reel this time.
The line system was formed by 15lb braid line and 40lb fluorocarbon leader line.
It can easily land these nice sized barramundi.
Barramundi is not too strong in a very shallow water.
In addition, I frequently switch lures.
Saving time for switching lures on the water is very important for my land based barramundi fishing because the productive fishing windows are usually very short.
That's why I always use a stainless hook clip for connecting to lures in a very shallow water.
I think that a nice sized barramundi is very, very strong when she is about to dive into water quickly.
So I won't use a hook clip by boat fishing.
