baramundi fishing around Port Douglas

my husband wants to go baramundi fishing - we are thinking of going to Port Douglas in November. Is this a good time of year for baramundi fishing?

Nope....

Throughout the Queensland east coast, a closed season applies to barramundi from midday 1 November to midday 1 February.

It is also prohibited to deliberately target barramundi for catch and release during these closed seasons, as the stress of capture may prevent a fish from spawning.
