Anchoring on the fish while live baiting for barramundi or other tropical species has never been easier than with these quick release clips.
When live baiting, I like to anchor side on to fish holding locations, using bow and stern anchors.
Not only can I fish four to five rods using this method, I can also easily maneuver the vessel to get it in exactly the right spot whenever the wind or tide changes.
Using quick release cleats makes this very easy. I have been using them for 20 years and have even towed disabled vessels home with them.
They are also brilliant when a big fish goes over or under the anchor rope or if we need to head off in hot pursuit.
The following short video demonstrates how I use quick release cleats on my boat.
For complete tutorials on how I set up my boat for barra, how to find and fish barra holding locations, and even the best tides to fish and what techniques to use in each location, check out our upcoming ecourse Barra Basics.
Barra Basics is designed to take years off your learning curve without having to spend 50 hours a week on the water for 20 years to figure it all out.
