My first Barramundi

Well I am back in India again. Now that the the Christmas and new year partying with friends as finally to settled down I have finally got down to some serious sea fishing at last. On my first outing I hooked into a good sized Red Snapper. Alas the fish did the usual and dived deep under rocks and finally spat the hook. Next day I got lucky and hooked into another fish. This time it fought differently and headed out into open water so I suspected this was another species. I was able to play and land the fish which turned out to be a Barramundi maybe just over 2lb. The fish was laying too far out to reach with the fly rod so I quickly set up my spinning gear which as you can see did the trick. Also added a picture of the fabulous location.
