On the other hand, the heavy rains that accompanied strong winds during the end of December is interfering with my land based barramundi fishing.
Even if the wind dropped, there would be too much fresh water in the shallows just after the heavy rains.
Most barramundi of costal waters tend to stay in deep waters just after the heavy rains.
That's why it will be very difficult to catch barramundi on lures in the shallow waters just after the heavy rains.
There are exceptions to every rule.
Regardless of that situation, a fickle barramundi sometimes comes into the shallow waters.
I went fishing at Channel Island and luckily hooked two nice sized barramundi but couldn't land them up.
As you know, barramundi can live in a freshwater area, a blackish water area or a saltwater area.
Barramundi try as much as possible not to drink fresh water in a fresh water area.
Barramundi try as much as possible to drink salt water in a salt water area.
They won't suck lures in a vigorous manner in the shallow water just after the heavy rains.
The fishing hook will be easily slipped out from the mouth of a fish in the shallow water after the heavy rains.
I also went fishing at East point.
In this case, I luckily caught a small barramundi and released him into the water.
Barramundi / December 28, 2017
Squidgies Fish 70mm / Lime Lighting / Jighead 1/6oz #1/0
I used a new fishing reel this time because I bought a new Shimano Chronarch G 150HG recently.
This reel has a very good casting distance.
I used a Surfix 832 20lb braid line for this new reel.
My land based barramundi fishing is totally supported by the advancing technology of these fishing tackles.
Recently, these technologies themselves have greatly improved and are becoming an important factor in my land based barramundi fishing.
