MANGROVE DWELLERS!

Daybreaks are a special time, the switch from night to day has a special effect on fish. Predators take advantage of the changing conditions to pounce on prey. The buzz is in the air as baitfish scamper and distant boofs are heard but can't be seen. We start early before the light of dawn and cast into the darkness and the unknown...

Not three casts in and the ultralight outfit screams and we hear a big surface splash, it can only signal one fish. Before long we have it in the net safely, the mini DUO Toto Shad had found its mark...

On the ultralight Major Craft MS-X spin rod this mighty Barramundi is as good a trophy as they come...

More boofs and more blind casts finds another Barramundi, albeit a smaller one. The DUO MOAB 85 is one of the most deadly lures we know and no doubt it produced...

The sun slowly peaks over the horizon, and the bite comes on. Another Barramundi hits the deck after an exciting take and a short struggle with the ultralight MS-X rod...

Its the good old DUO Realis Shad which makes the kill...

As the tide empties eddies form and in one prime one we find a predator waiting to ambush. The explosive take at our feet reveals another nice Barramundi...

The IMA Sasuke SF-75 is the perfect Mullet impersonator...

Ambush predators don't get any more clich├ęd than the humble Cod...

This little guy reacted to a textbook cast next to a snag. The IMA Koume 40 did the damage...

Another nice snag and the IMA Koume 40 finds another mangrove dweller, the hard pulling Mangrove Jack. But this is just a juvenile and it was no match for the ultralight MS-X rod. The same can't be said if the fish was given a couple of years to grow. Like all the other fishes it was released to fight another day...
