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.
