How to Catch ‘Em

Some of the popular methods for catching Barramundi is casting lures, plastics & flies, around mangroves roots, snags and fallen trees as well as gutter and creek inflows. A true Barramundi angler will never pass a rock bar without a cast or 10.

Like all fishing there is always going to be some trial and error on working out how – when – where and why and even then. it is an every changing science. Many will say there are better fighting fish and better eating fish but once you are onto one of these big silver girls, everything seems to go out the window. Suddenly all you will want to do is catch more Barramundi and you will be back year after year.

Is this not the best moment?

Go to Top

FishingEarth can make this Barramundi moment yours. It is hard to say definitively why barramundi have the mystique and reputation that they have. Is it because they inhabit waterways from remote and beautiful locations? Is it because these locations are remote and far from where 80% of Australians live?

Maybe…I think it’s because you never forget that first jump of a hooked barramundi. You’re drifting along in your boat with your friends or family casting into mangrove lined waterways snags and fallen trees that inconspicuous looking gutter with just a trickle of water coming out of the flats, you cast your lure… Thinking I wonder?? Is this the spot?? And then… well we all know what happens next and no matter if that barramundi makes it to the net or not that moment is recorded in your memory forever.

Barramundi are like smart surfers that only go and live in places that are warm most of the year round. If you need your winter woollies, than there is probably not going to be a lot of barramundi around to fish for.

This is changing a little with impoundment barramundi fishing becoming ever so popular. Impoundments are ‘put, grow and take’ fisheries where most stocked species will not reproduce. This means the impoundments need to be stocked regularly so every successful session ensures fruitless hours or days on the water. It’s truly an unforgettable experience.

Here at FishingEarth we have the best charters and launches in Australia that are located in the best locations to get you onto more barramundi than anywhere else.

On my last trip to the NT for the first three days the fish where only biting on soft plastics, then the last two days they changed to only wanting to smash hard body lures. That’s why FishingEarth has the best charters, lodges and guides as they know the that, how, where and why. Although many anglers would rather be belted with their rod than try trolling, it has accounted and often accounts for the biggest Barramundi. Slow trolling can produce action like you would not believe and is always worth the effort if the fish are not taking casted lures. Make sure you talk to your guide about the best methods for working your lure when over structure. Guides are worth their weight in gold!!

Every Barramundi angler has their favourite type, colour and sized lure, plastic or fly. As I discovered on my last trip to WA its not always the best lure to use. Always listen to your guide as they know the area and they know the fish. But in saying that always pack a Gold Bomber or if you are fly fishing a Pink Thing!!

There is a particular lure fishing style that was developed in North Queensland for the Gold Bomber that’s a bit like ‘shake rattle and roll’. You have to work the lure though the water giving it as much action as you can. The trick is to pause, yes pause, every few seconds AND then CRANK it again. The number of times you will be smashed on the pause will blow your mind.

But like all fishing situations you have to adapt to the conditions at the time. It’s not always the case that you want your artificial bait making as much commotion as possible; sometimes a more subtle approach is needed. Just remember there is no such thing as a bad cast. Also remember, there is only one true sure way of catching Barramundi… and that’s being on the water at the right time.

Here at FishingEarth we know that our lodgers and chartered to have the best fishing guides in Australia. So we always recommend that you talk to your guides about what they think are the best colours, lures and methods either casting his cheating or trawling for barramundi. In saying that never be afraid to have a go with the method you think might work. Sometimes it just takes a slight variation to get the fish going like crazy where you are getting smashed by barramundi cast after cast.

Every barramundi fisherman has his or her favourite type colour, lure size, soft plastic or fly. Never get stuck on just doing the same thing over and over again. If the fish are not biting always try something different. Remember the definition of insanity is repeating the same task over and over again and expecting a different result. Freshwater trout fishermen all over the world know that you have to match the hatch. Barramundi although far more aggressive, or even amazingly more aggressive than freshwater trout, some days you really do have to know what they’re eating to be successful.

Barramundi are somewhat a lazy fish you will not find them sitting in strong currents unprotected. They like to ambush their prey. In that they like their dinner to be home delivered. So when you are coming up to a snag that you think will likely hold fish. You have to think about where the barramundi think there dinner is going to come from. And get your lure in that location travelling in the same direction as what you think the bait will be travelling. Often you can drag a lure over and over again past a structure that you know has fish in it and you don’t get a touch. You then stop and think about it and work out that the current may be travelling in a different direction around that particular spot. And the bait is coming from the opposite direction to where your casting. See the change in direction and BOOM first cast onto a beautiful barramundi. It is not rocket sites but it’s certainly can be close sometimes.
