the slow wobbling lure is excellent for ambush predators we dont use spoons to target barra because most of them are fast retrieve and suitable for fish which chase down bait e.g rawas ,makarel etc.
King fish do me one favor tell me if one can retive this spoon as slow as minnow type lure maintaining a steady depth

I've have heard of Mangrove Jacks and barra being taken on spoons in India but to be honest there will be a much higher strike rate with minnows and plastic shads. compared to aussie freshwater barra the saltwater fish in india tent to be highly picky at times. Using a lure of the wrong size or one that swims at the wrong depth will almost certainly result in a blank.

Often I have fished by the side of people who have used a slightly different lure and while I have caught fish they have blanked..it is critical to figure out exactly what the fish want to take on a certain day by ringing the changes.

Sure you will get the odd fish with a spoon or random lure but find the right one and you might catch ten. last session we had in india with the right lure produced 18 barra and many more missed. I know if we had only had larger lures we might have only landed a couple of fish..

all the best, Scott

I was reading about the Barra spoon. this type of lure is named "Barra spoon" so it must be taking barras. One of the fishing teams were experimenting with them found out that when Barra were feeding on mullet they took no other lure but the Barra spoon.
I was interested due to the casting distance as small minnows dont provide much distance in surf.

I cannot comment on the speed at which the Barra spoon can be retrieved as I have not used it and do not anticipate using it soon.

It is a single hook spoon and is not that heavy from my recollection.

Should you wish to surf cast with metals to get distance and yet maintain a slow retrieve, then I suggest you look at the Spanyid Maniac which has an elongated yet flattened profile.

It comes in weights from 7 gm. Up to 60gm and has a slow wobble when retrieved, plus it can catch a wide variety of fish. However, it will be difficult to cast into the wind.

Not sure if these would catch barras, though.

if you read the book 'circumventing the mahseer and other sport fishes of india' the author recommends spoons for barras and ravas.
