The sea water was very clear and cold in dry season.
Just as I mentioned before, most people think we can't enjoy barramundi fishing in the cold water season.
I will dare your disagreement, and say that it is only their imagination.
Barramundi start to have a very high cautiousness in clear and cold water.
As far as I have experienced, the rolling action is more efficient than the wobbling action when I use soft-plastic lures in the very clear and cold water.
A beginner in barramundi fishing may as well know the action of large sized barramundi travelling from the shallow waters where they lived to deeper waters having stable temperature in the cold-water season.
Separately from that, we are able to see a lot of small sized barramundi in the shallow water in our dry season.
In the evening, even large sized barramundi follow schools of small fishes into shallow water in our dry season.
It depends on how you fish barramundi in the cold water season.
First, I caught a small barramundi on Squidgies Fish 80mm.
Small barramundi / June 17, 2017 / Mindil beach
Squidgies Fish 80mm, Black-gold, Jighead 1/6oz #1/0
Second, I caught a 48cm barramundi on Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm.

The fishes to be an object of fishing are not so big in size, therefore, I used a very light fishing rod and very small reel.
I enjoyed the exciting lure fishing using a very light tackle.
