Hi Folks,

I got back last night from a sea fishing trip to Chennai (Madras). A couple of friends and I spent two days fishing off the coast of madras using live bait and plugs. It was an awesome experience to be able to fish offshore just five hours from bangalore. We were using a friends boat which is a 30 foot fibreglass boat with a 10 HP motor . The weather was excellent and we were fishing about five kilometres off the coast in blue water. On our very first outing we hit paydirt! We were drift fishing with live bait and my cousin Dhanu who has just started angling had a massive strike. At first I thought it wasn't a big one since it didn't strip line after taking the bait but as Dhanu hauled it in we saw that it was a big King Mackerel (Seer fish). Dhanu played the fish very well for an amateur and brought it in for gaffing in ten minutes. The feeling was just superb, to be out in the open sea with no land in sight and a huge fish on board! Smiles all around.

The reel Dhanu was using was a Penn 6/0 with 40lb mono and the rod was a Powerstick boat rod.



Tight lines!
Bopanna

Why hasn't Dhanu signed up?

Nice fish. Did you get a GPS waypoint for the location of the hookup ?
I've just looked at the area satalite photo and the continental shelf is close in near Chennai. There also look to be a lot of depth variations close inshore that could be specific holding areas for fish.

Hi Ken,

We used a local fisherman that had a GPS in his head! It was just amazing how all those years of fishing for a living had allowed him to pinpoint a wreck off the coast everytime we went out. I didn't carry a GPS this time but will do so the next time we are out.

Could you tell me where I can take a look at the satellite map you mentioned?

BTW my friend in chennai who has the boat is planning on starting a Sea Angling guide service for those that are interested. I watched a video of him landing a 120 lb sailfish last month not to mention numerous cobia and kingfish. The sailfish kept tailwalking all the way to the boat and it took over an hour to land it.

Cheers,
Bopanna

Very nice mackerel. Good to see Dhanu with a fish like that espcecially since he's a new kid on the block. They're an absolute blast to catch on light gear and readily go for bait and plugs trolled off the back of a boat.

Bopanna Sir,
Excellent fish. However, I am puzzled by your claim that the boat was a 30ft fiberglass (very heavy) yet was powered by a 10hp motor???? Unless the horses in Bangalore are clydesdales this 10hp wouldn't budge a boat that size on a glassy lake let alone a choppy sea. You'd need more like a 150hp to make a dent in that water.
Regards,
MM

Hi Jeff,

Guess you know what you're gonna be carrying back this year :wink:
Here's a picture of the crompton greaves single cylinder diesel engine powering the boat. It's the only thing that works for a beach landing.

Hey Bops,

Just had a look at the last picture you posted. What kind of speed were you doing with an engine like that?
It looked a bit underpowered..... in terms of the time taken to get out to actual fishing grounds.

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.

Hey Bops,

Thanks for your reply. That would make it 7 knots, which is a decent trolling speed for mackerel.

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.

Fishing videos of the madras trip. These files are large! Right click on the link and choose "save target as". Change the name to king1.mpg etc. Please remember to save them as .mpg files else they won't open.

A very late update, the sea fishing videos are now on youtube, have a look if you haven't already downloaded it. Don't miss the cooler with live bait in it.

Hi Bops,

Still on the topic... How did you hook on the bait fish? and what bait fish are they?
Never tried live baits... hopefully will be giving them a shot this weekend.(What say Rajat Da?)

Cheers,
Madhur.

PS. Awesome video.
