So on windy days, it is not easy to find a fishing location which is suitable for the lure fishing.
The force of the wind was weakened on Saturday morning.
I decided to go fishing to Channel Island by my 150cc scooter depending on the tidal level.
Any tidal level over 2.8m has too much water to access to my usual fishing location there.
By the way, you should always be aware of the risk of a saltwater crocodile attack in all Top End waterways.
It is never 100% safe to enter the water.
Your personal safety is your responsibility.
SAVAGE GEAR provides a hard-body lure to be swum little by little like a small mullet.
This was my first time using a Svage Gear 3D Minnow Twitch 80.
First, an approximately 50cm trevally took its lure in an 1m-deep clear water.
The force in this size trevally is always very strong.
Second, a 51cm barramundi took the same lure at a depth of about 20cm in a murky water.
The sizes being equal, trevally would be more aggressive than barramundi.
I like these fish, but I prefer barramundi as game fish in shallow water.
I changed the lure.
And I caught and released a small golden snapper on Squidgies Fish 80mm Drop Bear colour.
This is about how I spend my Saturday morning in Darwin.
