Now, I'm in Darwin.
I had fun fishing for the first time in a month in Darwin.
I went fishing to Channel Island on Sunday morning.
Dead leaves strewed the sea surface.
That meant that much land water ran into the shallow water in the sea.
That was a minus factor for my land based barramundi fishing.
Sea barramundi doesn't like a new born land water.
I waded to look for a good sea water.
I saw a crocodile swimming nearby a month ago.
The long casting distance was demanded for the lure under the circumstance.
The wind was against me.
- Lucky Craft Sammy 115mm (Top water)
- Rapala Xrap 100mm (Suspending)
- Bomber Long 15A (Floating)
- Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm (Sinking)
Four lures were to cast in the rotation.
As a result, I caught a 59cm barramundi on Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm.
I used a new high speed bait cast reel (8.2:1) by improving the handle grips this time.
Of course you can wind Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm slowly as long as you do not mind the resistance to water current.
