It was the first clear seawater in a while on Saturday morning.
We cannot expect much for a big sized barramundi at Mindil beach because it is a beach close to the centre of a city.
For all that, it is very fun to fish on lures at Mindil beach.
My recommendation is a lure fishing like a sight fishing.
Needless to say, a sight fishing is very fun particularly at a time of clear seawater.
You can easily enjoy an unique atmosphere of the sight-fishing like.
However, if you get carried away you will risk failure so take care!
There are thousands of rocks covered with oysters in the very shallow water.
If you are a beginner who is to lure fishing, normal soft plastics are likely to cause a snag.
Even a floating-hard-body lure sometime causes a snag there.
The chances will depend on your ability and experience in lure fishing.
Conversely, you are able to develop your skill as a lure-fishing angler at Mindil beach.
Although I am acting big, in reality I am just talking big.
First, L caught a small barramundi on a hard body lure.

In the meantime, the sea was getting up.
My second barramundi was bigger than the first.
I used a soft plastic shad with a weedless hook.
