I’m jealous that other anglers can go to the Shady Camp to fish! From the medium- to long-term viewpoint, the good amount of rain showers benefits upon our barramundi fishing. But the immediate issue for me is that the long rain would not be very good for land-based barramundi fishing in my normal urban fishing locations.
The sea has become dirty because of the inflow of a large amount of rainwater that also washes in debris and rubbish.
In addition to this factor, we have been having very wavy seas which further stir up inshore areas.
The rain stopped this weekend at last.
But the sea was very wavy as usual.
I only could go fishing to an urban creek.
I saw that many small barramundi were chasing bait in the creek.
I couldn’t see distinctly what they were eating.
Probably small shrimps, with a length of about 3-4mm, which were hopping out of the water.
When fish are feeding on very small bait like this it is hard to catch them.
I used some hard body lures and soft plastic lures to fish.
Nothing could fish them.
I didn’t know how to fish them.
After all, I only caught some small rock cod.
