Saturday of June 16
It's very windy.
I went fishing to Channel Island.
I was thinking that I needed a cowling for my 150cc scooter which could effectively suppress an air cutting sound while driving.
I stayed and fished at Channel Island for 2 hours.
As might be expected, the fishing results were very poor.
And I hesitated about which fishing location to go with, Mindil Beach or East Point.
Finally, I moved to look for good-tide timing to Mindil Beach.
I thought that my decision was correct when I arrived at Mindil beach.
The wind in the upper sky was strong.
But the sea-surface wasn't wavy.
It's a typical situation in our dry season.
I waded through a knee deep water to a good place for casting lures.
The seawater was murky.
Be careful when entering our waters!
I had to watch my step, or else I would trip on the rocks or step on the stingrays.
A 8'6" long fishing rod was a handy to take on this situation.
The progress in technologies of fishing reels, fishing lines and lures also has given my land based barramundi fishing an amazing casting-distance of lures.
As a result, I caught and released a 52cm barramundi on Squidgy Pro Mongrel 90mm Aussie Herring colour.
The size of barramundi is a lottery in my usual fishing locations.
It is much less muggy in June than it was our wet season.
In addition, I'm not concerned about a lightning strike while fishing.
I love our dry season.
