As is often the case with beginners

The soft plastics are more likely to cause a snag in the case of the beginner.
I have been asked by a reader as follows.
All I'd get is snagged on the rocks. Weedless be the go?
"That is true," I will respond.

Many skilled lure-fishermen might tell him to wind the soft plastics as slow as possible.

One of them was me though.

That's why he lost his soft plastics at Mindil beach.

Mindil beach in some places is a rugged coast.
There are thousands of rocks covered with oysters in water.
Technically, Mindil is the toughest fishing location.
My winding speed of fishing line should be faster than he expected at Mindil.
My video, "Land based barramundi fishing near town in Darwin Vol. 15", will give him some idea of my winding speed of the fishing line.

In addition, I used a very fast fishing reel with 8.2 : 1 gear ratio in my video.

I should respond that he doesn't need the weedless even at Mindil.
And I can tell him this following approach.
First, he should wind the fishing line fast at the first cast of the soft plastic.
Second, he should wind the fishing line while gradually lowering winding speed with lifting the tip side while holding the fishing rod.
Finally, he will know the slowest winding speed for the fishing location at Mindil.
