64cm Barramundi #1116 by Hiro
62cm Barramundi by Mr. Keith Watson

My very good fishing friend, Keith Watson and I went fishing at Channel Island on January 20.
It rained hard on the previous day.
There was much fresh water in the shallow water.
We didn't have any fish bites for a while.
It was sunny, but in the meantime it began to rain.
I thought that the sky looked lowering, but it wouldn't be much of a storm.
I spoke to Keith.
"The very beginning of rain is a big chance to catch a barramundi on shore."
Rainfalls and clouds changed the water colour of the sea from moment to moment.
We matched the colour of our lures with the constantly varying water colour.
Keith used Berkley Gulp Swimming Mullet 10cm Pumpkinseed.

As a result, he caught a 62cm barramundi.

I was casting lures at a deeper water than Keith's fishing point.
The reason I chose Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm Aussie Herring was because its colour also matched with the water colour.

As a result, I caught a 64cm barramundi.
Things did go by theory this time.
