The water current was strongly fast and moved at high speed.
I couldn't stay through a long period of time at the same fishing point.
That means that the productive fishing window was short.
Barramundi wouldn't take lures positively under the condition like this.
I know that they can't take lures very well in the strong water current.
By watching the shape of the tail-fin, they should be inferior to Queen-fish in swiftness.
I had to match my lure-action with their timing.
I chose a Maria MJ-1 S110F.
Maria MJ-1 S110F is a very effective lure for the land based barramundi fishing on our shallows.
MJ-1 has a long flight distance and was able to fly easily, even against the wind.
In addition, MJ-1 swims in the strong water current very well.
MJ-1 was the perfect lure for that condition.
The sea water was clear - murky.
The sea surface was rippled.
That's reason why I chose chrome in colour.
After all, I had a bit of good luck.
As a result, I caught a 57cm urban saltwater barramundi.
