This is getting very interesting...

I would assume that there are so many variables on the conditions and taking into account rivers, creeks versus estuaries etc and, at different times...

The first pic of Shady I posted, you could have cast Jeff's discount card in. It was filthy but no matter what you cast, you hooked up. I know Barra are more voracious in the build up/breeding/run off season and any rushing (local) water would be an attraction to them - if you were local and only had a pond to swim in.

Harbour Arms with big current/wind/heat etc, I believe are a different story all together up here.

I figure that if I were a soft snack Mullet I would not be hanging on the edges or in the turbulence of windy water (shallows) - it's hard enough getting beat up against the rocks or the bank before you get eaten I'd imagine and I've never hooked up in those conditions so I just go trolling out from the edges a bit where I suspect the bait retreats to - as rough as they can handle and in fear!

I'm pretty confident in saying if it's windy and choppy you just have to fish deeper water where the bait move to from the rough edges, at least in the shallows of Darwin Harbour arms.

In saying all that, I had a small Barra grab the end of my finger one night when I reached over the transom to rinse my fingers. I jumped in fright and the bow waves - at least 20 of, departed from the back of the boat at great speed.

The clue... they were attracted to the trickle of the live bait tank in dead silence while we had livies strategically positioned for only a couple of fish!

Sneaky indeed. :fishy:
