Vibe lures have been more popular with many Aussie fishes for the past few years. They’re a hit especially if you’re chasing Barra in freshwater and saltwater. Vibe lures give you a plethora of options and can dive deep to help you chase Barrs.
Poppers give you some serious thrill and excitement. They’re one of the most aggressive types of surface lure that allows you to see when the fish takes the bite. Pausing on the retrieve is the key to using poppers while fishing for Barramundi. For example, give poppers multiple twitches, then give a pause.
Lure fishing is loads of fun and I prefer it over fishing with traditional baits any day. Once I started fishing on lures, I soon found out that lure fishing allows one as an angler to be more proactive and not having the mess and smell of traditional bait is dream come true. I love fishing but that doesn’t mean I have to enjoy smelling like bait.
