    Barra Tackle for the new season

    Hi Ausfishers

    As a bit of a companion piece to Brians "Barra Musing" thread ....... I'm a little curious to know what adjustments we have made to our tackle for the new season ..... yes I know that we should have been fishing through those cooler months ....... but hey - we either couldn't get there or couldn't be bothered dragging our backsides out of bed to get there .
    Are we using or going to use new reels , rods , line , lures etc etc ....... If so ... why have you made the change?

    Heres to happy times ahead

    Nagg,
    A 'new look' Lake Awoonga down beneath the surface has changed my approach to fishing slightly, yet again. A few new lures, 2 new rod/reel combos and a changed mental attitude to the new lake will help keep me in touch with yet another 'chapter' in changing lake dynamics.
    Weed and moss buffers on the edges and weed bed barriers out in deep water have changed water flow and wave action, so for the ' now time', in some ways, we have a lake and some barramundi that will behave differently in these circumstances. Some good lures that have done quite well in the past may not do as good and some new fandangle tackle will fill a few gaps.
    Cheers,
    Johnny

    Re: Barra Tackle for the new season

    It looks like a spin outfit has been added to the kit for some ........ Now why would Mondy fishoes do that ? ...... Hmmm , could it be that some of the backs of bays are going to see some funny looking (soft) plastic thingies launched into them ( specially come Sept / Oct) ,,,, I wonder

    You may be right Chris

    On the other hand, I've always preferred spin outfits to baitcasters anyway!

    Re: Barra Tackle for the new season

    I 've got my training wheels on when it comes to barra fishing so I've only just started collecting gear.
    Couple of spare spools for the Chronarch...got some 30lb tufline....have to get some 50lb now. Scored a little barra mauler for my birthday. It'll do for a start.
    Keeping my eye out for a good size spin stick with a solid reel.
    Slowly building a good stock of barra lures....about every tenth visit to the tacklestore I'll grab a barra lure.....but honestly my little boy has a bigger stash of barra lures than I have, thanks to one of his mates !!!. He's got an old cotton banking bag full of them and he won't let me touch them....although he did let me have one of his Squidgy caps.

    I'm bad enough with a baitcaster .......... Give me a spin rod & you're likely to see me 10M up a tree retrieving a lure ( like the US marines ...... I wont leave a trooper behind )

    Oh you poor bloke ...... you've only reached the sniffle stage of IBD - By the end of summer I'm sure it will be full blown IBD ..... which is all consuming!

    Re: Barra Tackle for the new season

    Remember ? Johnny said stringy......I went out at midnight in my old blue ute and bought them off a farmer who smelled strongly of fish, with treble scarred hands.
    He didn't say a word but stared into my eyes with a burning gaze....for some strange reason the words $12.00 a kilo popped into my head...I then got a nose bleed, peed my pants and feinted. I awoke with a strong desire to head up to Monduran and buy some dohnuts ???? what does it mean.......????

    Damn this onset of IBD. YOU HAVE A LOT TO ANSWER FOR JAS !!!!

    Now Michael.........this mate of Caleb's wouldn't happen to be a certain JW would it? I heard he has a few lures tucked away here and there

    Whitto.......if you are at Lake M on Sept 12-14, we (Navi, Vin, Ben, me) will more than likely see you there.
