It was a pleasant morning.
Wet season has gone.
Dry season has just started.
I went fishing at East Point in the early morning.
The tide water was coming into the shallow.
The sea water was very clear.
Five or six people had already been there.
Some of them were fishing on live baits.
I saw one of them caught a nice sized barramundi.
I caught and released a flathead on a hard body lure.
But I couldn't catch any barramundi.
The lure motions were discerned by barramundi.
And I went straight to Mindil Beach.
I saw some people fishing at my usual fishing point in the clear-water side.
So I had to fish at the murky-water side.
I waded through the shallow water to a knee deep point with great attention to crocodiles, stingrays and stonefish.
It would be very effective for matching the lure colour with the water colour in a shallow water.
By this, the lure motion hard to be not discerned by the fish.
The land based barramundi fishing differs the boat based barramundi fishing in many ways.
As a result, I caught and released 3 barramundi this morning.
To tell the truth, I am unsatisfied with the size of average barramundi around Mindil Beach.
Mindil Beach is located near the urban district very much.
We have no choice.
