Barramundi are an incredibly fascinating fish. They are born in brackish water and can survive in both fresh and saltwater. I was impressed to learn that barramundi in rivers travel to the ocean to spawn. This fish is present in what is described as the Indo-West Pacific and actually has quite widespread populations. It is known by other names like, giant sea perch and white seabass, though Australia is where the most popular name “Barramundi” was recently coined. This collection of barramundi fishing videos offers a close look at this incredibly hard fighting fish. So click in, and enjoy the top five barramundi fishing videos published on YouTube.

This barramundi fishing video fits perfectly into the top five barramundi fishing videos. 7 seconds and a close-up look at a 1 meter long barracuda. The cameraman confirms it is the tenth giant barramundi of the day for these anglers. This is a huge fish and I can only imagine the fight it gave.

This pick is 1 min. and 20 sec. of awesome barramundi fishing video. The high quality footage of the angler fighting this massive barramundi is crowned by slow motion jumps. It seems the barramundi everyone is striving for is 1 meter long, that’s a big barramundi!

I couldn’t help but enjoy this 1 min. fishing video. It features a number of men in a small boat, all talking crowding around the angler. A lip gaff on a stick is used with one smooth motion to hoist the fish into the boat. Excitement erupts when the fish laid on the bottom of the boat and the camera gets a close-up look at this very big barramundi.

I really enjoy this 1 min. 29 sec. barramundi fishing video. It features angler sight fishing to a big barramundi hiding in the sticks. Three masterful casts to the same spot and the fish decides to strike, right next to the boat and right on film. Perhaps one of the greatest attributes of barramundi is the fact that they can’t resist an easy meal.

I picked this barramundi fishing video to be number one for two reasons, it has thousands upon thousands of views on YouTube, and, by the end of its 3 min. 50 sec., the camera captures incredible close-up footage of a massive barramundi. The anglers are on foot and excited as this thrashing beast comes to shore.
