Barramundi success on Hard Bodies

Dad and I have had a reasonably successful weekend chasing Barramundi on hard bodied lures. We fished the mouths of some of the local creeks tossing the lures at the base of the mangrove roots around the top of the big morning tide. Over the two days we probably had on over a dozen fish in total, and landed most of these. Around 5 fish went over 60cm, and the biggest was about 74cm. The lure that seemed to do most of the damage was the Flaz Rat 10+ in a gold colour.

Unfortunately our crabbing efforts were not as good. I don't know how people catch crabs? We got HEAPS that were within 1cm of legal. But could only manage one that was big enough to bring home.
