Now, this is really something to bark about urooooooooooooooooo!
The barramundi is widely regarded as Australia’s premier native sport fish and Tropical North Queensland offers excellent opportunities to target this much sought after species.
The golden rule to barramundi fishing is to use a lure to suit the terrain. If fishing upstream amongst the weed beds for small juveniles (45-65 cm fish) or downstream for larger fish over the mud flats, gutters etc., use a shallow running lure. The Gold long “A” 6 inch lure has probably cough more barra than any other popular lure and is excellent in these conditions.
Barramundi If however you are targeting fish in deeper tidal areas with steep banks or deep snags, use a lure that will get down to the fish. Lures that work well in this scenario include “C” lures, Leads deep divers and Rapala Shad Raps in most popular colors including natural, pink/purple, gold and brown.
A baitcasting rod and reel, or spinning outfit fitted with 6-8 kg line, is the ideal choice for river and estuary work.
Barramundi can also be targeted using traditional bait fishing techniques but always remember that structure to hold the fish for a period during the tidal cycle is paramount. Fresh live bait works best, either large prawns, mullet, sardines or mud herring rigged to swim in the current.
Anchor upstream of the structure and drift the bait to the snag with as little lead as possible. HANG ON and these fish will hit hard and many fish are lost at the initial hook up stage. Obviously this style of fishing is not for the faint hearted and quality gear or heavy hand lines essential.
Barramundi are great to catch, their leaping fight is exhilarating and their strength renowned.
