53cm Barramundi and 3 more small barramundi #1084-1087
Squidgies Fish
Zerek Live Cherabin
Squidgies S-Factor

Finally, I succeeded in finding a new way in the land based barramundi fishing during the jelly-prawn season.
We realize jelly-prawn are an indispensable animal barramundi cannot be without.
Though jelly-prawn are very important, they are annoying.
It sometimes occurs that barramundi won't take lures when they are moving about in search of jelly-prawn.
They will not design to notice lures.
We will get frustrated with barramundi in such a situation.
The seasons that have the large outbreak of jelly-prawn occur several times a year.
I think that jelly-prawn are in the end of the heavy-rain season, the beginning of the dry season and the beginning of summer.
It is very difficult for me to catch barramundi in these jelly-prawn seasons in my usual fishing locations because the large outbreaks of jelly-prawn occur in other locations.
Though barramundi are gone out, they are not all gone out of my usual fishing locations.
For when barramundi are moving about in search of jelly-prawn I found I were able, by nice adjustment, to get the good result from it.
It would be good if you use a fish gathering component which has a taste or  a smell favoured by target fish.
I usually don't use a Squidgies S-Factor for my land based barramundi fishing.
It was borne in upon me that a Squidgies S-Factor is very effective for catching barramundi that are moving about in search of jelly-prawn.
I caught and released four barramundi in this way on the weekend.

I realized that fish are moving about in search of jelly-prawn in September.
Mr. Shane Oliver caught a nice sized queenfish on a soft-plastic lure like a jelly-prawn at Channel Island on the weekend.

Barramundi #1083
Squidgies Fish
Jelly prawn season

The end of the dry season.
The seawater is warming now.
Barramundi are moving about in search of new jelly-prawn.
Barramundi have drastically decreased around Mindil beach, Fannie bay and East point.
Barramundi occasionally appear around Channel Island recently.
Last Sunday, the tide wasn't good for fishing barramundi at Channel Island.
I didn't have any choice so I went to Mindil beach to fish.
The tide was coming into the shallow water.
There were many rocks in the water.
The lures tended to be easily caught on rocks covered with oysters.
I wanted to try to use a Squidgies Fish 70mm with Lime-Lighting colour which Alex Murray used the week before at Channel Island.
Alex caught three barramundi by using a Squidgies Fish 70mm with Lime-lighting colour at that time.
It shaped like a small fish.
That shape is of no consequence.
Its colour and size are an important factor of that lure.
Barramundi probably mistake a Squidgies Fish 70mm with Lime-Lighting colour for jelly-prawn.
As a result, I caught and released a barramundi at Mindil beach.




Barramundi / September 17, 2017



There was only once bite of the fish.
That barramundi happened to be there.
Luckily, I could hooked him on my lure.
Such is the fishing.

The size of barramundi that I caught was 48cm.
He was what was called a rat sized barramundi.
I used a very thin fishing rod and a small fishing reel with a 10lb braid line.
It's fine with me.
I enjoyed it very much on Sunday.

68cm Barramundi #1082
Zerek Live Cherabin 100mm
Mr. Alex Murray caught 3 barramundi on Squidgies Pro Shad.

Barramundi are not often seen at Mindil Beach, Fannie Bay and East Point in September.
That's the usual at this time of year.
It is because barramundi are moving about in search of new jelly-prawns now.
Last Saturday, I went fishing to Channel Island for the first time in a while.
I thought, there was little chance that I could meet many jelly-prawns there.
I gave a Zerek Live Cherabin 100mm having a similar appearance to a large jelly-prawn a try.
I had my wish.
A strong fish suddenly carried out a Zerek Live Cherabin 100mm.
But the fish was firmly hooked on a fishhook.
The fishing line was strongly pulled by the fish.
As a result, I caught a 68cm nice shaped barramundi.

I was still so engaged when, Alex Murray caught three barramundi in succession.
He was so near that I could take some pictures and a short movie of his fishing.




Alex used a Squidgies Pro Shad 70mm / Lime Lighting colour




Alex's results demonstrated that barramundi were in search of jelly-prawns.
I know that barramundi like this colour very much.
This colour is also effective for catching a mangrovejack.

Barramundi have left from my usual fishing locations.
That is the usual in September.
Barracuda #16

Barramundi have left from my usual fishing locations.
That is the usual in September.
I went fishing at Mindil beach on Saturday and Sunday.
I didn't have any barramundi's strikes on my lures.
I only caught and released a barracuda on Squidgies Fish 80mm.

Many people believe that barramundi become active in September because of the rise in seawater temperature.
That depends on circumstances.
But in reality, it is very difficult to catch barramundi in my usual fishing locations in September every year.
It is expected that it is crowded with new jelly-prawns at the floodplains somewhere in September.
Therefore, barramundi move from my usual fishing locations to the floodplains in the creeks somewhere in search of jelly-prawns in September.
The floodplains somewhere in September??
If I change the wording of what I wanted to say to you, it goes like this.
The flowing water and draining water along the creek banks.
That is why September is the dead season for my land based barramundi fishing.
A person who has a boat still can catch barramundi at the floodplains in the creeks and nice sized Spanish-mackerel offshore in September.
September is a not bad season in that sense.
My very good fishing friend, Allan Warchot combined theory with practice and caught and released a 51cm barramundi at the floodplain in the Buffalo creek recently.




But things are not all bad to me.
I was called out to by a person I didn't know in town.




She said that she sometimes read my fishing column in Sunday Territorian.
It was very kind of her to say so.
It made me feel very happy.
Thank you very much, Mrs. Pam Fuller.
