I NEED A HIRO
Land-based sensei HIROAKI NAKAMURA shares his hard-won knowledge on catching the mighty barramundi without a boat
I found it difficult to catch a nice sized barramundi from a high rock.
My video, land based barramundi fishing near town in Darwin Volume 35, will tell you that I missed a nice sized one.
I went fishing at Myilly Point rocks on Saturday morning.
I thought that there were many barramundi in this area. There were — lots of little barramundi. First, I used Bomber Long 15A Gold. Using a soft fishing rod, I created an abnormal action with my lure, to make it seem like injured prey.
It was very important how to add life to a lure with my fishing rod and reel.
Rod: Samaki Zing Xtreme SZX-661BM 6’6” Line: 8-14lb Cast: 1/4-5/8oz.
Action: Moderate. Reel: Shimano Scorpion 70XG Gear ratio 8.2:1 very fast.
As a result, I missed a nice sized barramundi, but I caught a small one.
Second, I used Squidgies Fish 70mm Lime Lighting. This is a soft plastic shad lure. So matching the bait to the location is the most important aspect of any land based fishing.
A soft plastic shad lure should be swum like a small fish, and its vibration of swimming can be transmitted precisely.
This is something which is easy to forget, so you should be careful too.
For example, after a heavy rain, you cannot feel the vibration of the swimming of the soft plastic shad lure very much.
As a result, I caught a small barramundi on Squidgies Fish 70mm Lime Lighting.
Sunday morning, I went fishing at Mindil Beach rocks.
Using Rapala Original minnow 130mm, I had a fun fishing experience.
There are thousands of rocks covered with oysters in shallow water. Many people lost lures in this area. However, skilled anglers can adequately enjoy fishing barramundi on lures by land based methods here.
Rapala Original minnow 130mm is a lightweight timber lure.
Using a soft fishing rod, I can have tact in managing this lure.
