I NEED A HIRO
Land-based sensei HIROAKI NAKAMURA shares his hard-won knowledge on catching the mighty barramundi without a boat BARRAMUNDI are not often seen at Mindil Beach, Fannie Bay and East Point in September. That’s the usual at this time of year. It is because barramundi are moving about in search of new jelly-prawns now.
Last Saturday, I went fishing to Channel Island for the first time in a while. I thought, there was little chance that I could meet many jelly-prawns there.
I gave a Zerek Live Cherabin 100mm having a similar appearance to a large jellyprawn a try. I had my wish.
A strong fish suddenly carried out a Zerek Live Cherabin 100mm. But the fish was firmly hooked on a fishhook. The fishing line was strongly pulled by the fish. As a result, I caught a 68cm nice shaped barramundi.
I was still so engaged when Alex Murray caught three barramundi in succession. He was so near that I could take some pictures and a short movie of his fishing.
Alex’s results demonstrated that barramundi were in search of jelly-prawns.
I know that barramundi like this colour very much. This colour is also effective for catching a mangrovejack.
