Everything you need to know about what and how i catch barramundi in one easy place.
There are many many ways to target barramundi on lures but for the purpose of this page i will show you the two main techniques that will work in the majority of barramundi impoundments.
The braid and leader I run barely changes no matter what the technique!
Braid: Sunline Cast away
Sunline Cast Away PE is a non-tangle braided line. It has the hybrid construction of 8 strands; 4 PE strands of braided fibre and 4 high-density ester mono-filaments. The surface of the line is smooth and makes far less guide noise than other lines. The smooth surface and the hybrid construction offers superb casting distance, accuracy and comfort with fewer line troubles. Cast Away PE is low stretch, high sensitivity line with a high weight ratio. It suspends in water and provides excellent visibility in dark or light conditions and is well suited for inshore/light off shore lure fishing.
Colour: Pearl Blue
Lengths: 200m (30-50lb), 300m (60-80lb)
Line classes i use: 40lb to 60lb
Leader: Sunline FC 100
This top of the line fluorocarbon has been designed with an emphasis on suppleness and a minimum of interference, imparting more action into your lure or jig. The Triple Resin Processing improves its smoothness, knot strength and abrasion resistance. The lighter line classes have boosted knot strength while the heavy line classes have a harder outer shell to protect against PE cutting the line.
Length: 30m, 100m
Line classes i use: 40lb to 80lb
