First of all, my apologies for not posting much reports in the recent past.
I was busy with life in general, and with my wedding and everything in the recent past.
Yes, I have been fishing whenever I had the chance. But my recent trips were very short, like just the weekends. Earlier I used to take a couple of days off and go to the shore for like four days and fish mainly the evenings and sometimes the mornings if I was up early, which rarely happened. Since I've been fishing short trips I started fishing throughout the day and I've discovered a few interesting things that I'd like to share....
Back when I started fishing, it was always early in the mornings or late evenings around dusk were said be the most productive times for fishing. However, we also used to primarily fish diving lures and some other hard bodied lures. But with the lure choices available to an angler in today's world, I don't think an angler should restrict to a certain time of day to fish. Most of the fish, we caught in the recent trips were around noon, and that surprisingly include the elusive Barramundi.... Other species being Rawas (didn't manage to land), Mangrove Jack, Groupers and small Trevallies. I missed a few nice Barra on a surface spook and when I was fishing with Binu, he lost a few Barras and a decent size Grouper on soft plastics as well, however we managed to land two Barramundi and a couple of MJs, all that around noon.
Lures that produced were Spooks and natural looking soft plastics like crawfish lures and such. I ordered some lively looking lures after the results from the previous trips, but I am yet to try them. And the other interesting thing that I had noticed was that some places produced better during the incoming time and some just light up like a Christmas tree during the outgoing tide. I think knowing this kind of information comes from putting your time at a certain spot and fishing it throughout the tide and observing very carefully for activity. That's all I got for now and I'll post pics when I get home later tonight. For now, I'll share some video links, but stay tuned for pics as well....https://youtu.be/LIFFHnJns48https://youtu.be/5Td7WoCQOGkhttps://youtu.be/thQ4J9zkLiEhttps://youtu.be/ARAxx-Vj3iU
