I went fishing at Mindil-beach rocks in the morning.
I was standing knee-deep in the water.
The water was cold and very clear.
The tide was going out.
There were many oyster-rocks in the shallow water.
If it were usual, I use some soft-plastic lures.
But I wanted to use a hard-body lure.
I had to use a light-weight lure scarcely being caught on an obstacle under water.
So I chose to use a Rapala Original 130mm / Gold made of wood.
Rightly, I had to adjust the fishing rod to the light-weight lure.
As a result, I chose to use a 1-3kg very light fishing rod.
Fortunately, my choices paid off and caught and released five small barramundi on a Rapala Original 130mm / Gold made of wood.
