Barramundi #1083
Squidgies Fish
Jelly prawn season

The end of the dry season.
The seawater is warming now.
Barramundi are moving about in search of new jelly-prawn.
Barramundi have drastically decreased around Mindil beach, Fannie bay and East point.
Barramundi occasionally appear around Channel Island recently.
Last Sunday, the tide wasn't good for fishing barramundi at Channel Island.
I didn't have any choice so I went to Mindil beach to fish.
The tide was coming into the shallow water.
There were many rocks in the water.
The lures tended to be easily caught on rocks covered with oysters.
I wanted to try to use a Squidgies Fish 70mm with Lime-Lighting colour which Alex Murray used the week before at Channel Island.
Alex caught three barramundi by using a Squidgies Fish 70mm with Lime-lighting colour at that time.
It shaped like a small fish.
That shape is of no consequence.
Its colour and size are an important factor of that lure.
Barramundi probably mistake a Squidgies Fish 70mm with Lime-Lighting colour for jelly-prawn.
As a result, I caught and released a barramundi at Mindil beach.

Barramundi / September 17, 2017

There was only once bite of the fish.
That barramundi happened to be there.
Luckily, I could hooked him on my lure.
Such is the fishing.

The size of barramundi that I caught was 48cm.
He was what was called a rat sized barramundi.
I used a very thin fishing rod and a small fishing reel with a 10lb braid line.
It's fine with me.
I enjoyed it very much on Sunday.
