Hi everyone, Andy here. And I’m back in the jungle. It’s warming up and I haven’t been in for a long time. I will try to fish a spot where I caught my biggest Barramundi. I have camped the night and I think it’s just after 7am. Lets see if we can catch some Barramundi or Mangrove Jack. It can be hard to get down to the water. Keep looking and you will find a spot. I’m fishing with the Shakesphere 5pc travel rod and Sienna 1000 reel. Yes, oh, dropped him. Try again. I started fishing with a Lively Lure, but now, Ive gone to a Zman grub.
I started fishing with a Lively Lure, but now, Ive gone to a Zman grub. With a weedless worm hook. It is very shallow and lots of weed, hard to see anything. This is my go to style of lure in this situation. It’s very shallow. It will be a bit tough today. Yes, I just got taken. Oh, yes. I will have to go over there. He has taken me a long way into that snag. It could be a Barramundi or Mangrove Jack. I didn’t quite expect that. I knew they would be here some place. It’s over knee deep in here. Lets see if we can find that fish, he is stuck now. Yep, he is still there. Where does the line come out… I’ll hand line him in. He is wrapped around everything. That’s one. Oh, he is still on there. Pass the rod under the tree. He is still going, still pulling. Under this one. Where from here? He as gone under everything! Ok, he is out. It is a nice Mangrove Jack. Right back under my feet. Into the snag. Rod under another tree. He is around my foot. Stick my hand in there. There he is, nice. Look at that Mangrove Jack. Wow look at that. He is almost 50cm long. No wonder he got me into the tree. Lets see. 51cm long even. Beautiful fish.
51cm long even. Beautiful fish. A beautiful Mangrove Snapper. This is the biggest I have caught in the jungle at 51cm long. Hard going and low water, but an amazing fish. He is right to go, off you go. Beautiful. I’m just fishing this hole, and this is a natural disaster… The cane toad is a very bad pest here. I will now help the environment! Get them both out. Find some nice big rocks. To dispatch them. I was just fumbling around.. Dealing with the toads and… And there is a Barramundi sitting right there. You might see it, I can. Drop my lure in front of him. They haven’t been bitting hard today. Yep, got him! That is my kind of fishing. Ahh, love it, love it! Only a small fish, but sight cast, that is cool. So much fun. And a really golden colour too. That makes my day. The Jack was cool, but that was special. Look at the colour on this fish. Beautiful colours, look at that. He will be about 52cm long. They aren’t as heavy fish as a Jack or Snapper. But they grow very quick and fast. The Zman worked. Oh, hello, look at this fish. Release this fish very gently. Oh, no, I just scared the big fish. Damn!
Oh, no, I just scared the big fish. Damn! I will fish here a bit longer now. I think he heard the other fish. Oh, here is another Jack! Right neat him. Caught him straight away, how good is this! Aww, no need to stop filming, cool. Nice, he is out. Lets see if the big Barra comes back. When I knelt down I scared the big Barra. We will fish here a bit longer, I like this spot. That is so cool, Sight cast Barramundi and Sight cast Mangrove Jack. The other Barramundi was huge, around 80cm long. For a spot this small, that is very good. Come on in, and another good fish. He is around the 50cm again. Look at that! He is about 47cm long. Tine to let Mr Jack go. Yep, no good bye, just gone. Wow that was cool, very cool. Here’s todays tip. The wind has come up and it’s a bit after lunch. It feels like the fish are not going to eat any more. When you think you should stop fishing… That’s the time to stop fishing. I have fished on many times and not caught anything. Time to go home.
