The tides were very good for my land based fishing.
Fortunately, there was no moon while I was fishing.
The water was very, very clear.
The sea surface was slightly wavy.
The productive fishing window came around 8:30pm.
It lasted one hour.
It was about this time last year.
I used the same lure at the same place at the same tide.
I think that a barramundi is mainly taking a small mullet or a small whiting in my fishing locations in this season.
Match the hatch
There are exceptions to it, however.
I'm not sure how fish see the colour under the water.
I accept this theory.
