Today's tides were not so good for my land based fishing.
The water was very clear.
The water becomes colder day by day.
Barramundi are getting bewildered in sudden change of the environment.
The stable water temperature is ideal for my land based fishing.
Even under the condition of a very cold water, they start biting lures once the water temperature became stable again.
There is an exception to this theory.
A small barramundi will sometimes take lures under the condition like this.
I went to Mindil Beach to fish around 8:00am this morning.
Many young people were listening to loud music on the beach.
I went to the rocks near Darwin High School.
Luckily, I caught a barramundi.
And then I went to East Point to fish.
The water was very clear and cold.
I caught a queenfish and two rockcod.
The colour of my lure was selected to be similar to the environment with the very clear water conditions.
