Hi Fellow Anglers,

I always wanted to visit Tarkarli having heard a lot about the clean beaches, blue sea and the beautiful back waters that one gets to see there. On seeing the trip report of Tarkarli by Mr. Arun, I called him up for some more information on the hotels and places to visit and booked two days at the MTDC beach resort and two days on the boat house for a vacation on my wedding anniversary.

With a very much accessible mouth of the estuary the place also looked an ideal location to catch my first Barramundi. The rocks 4 kms inside the sea was another location I thought I should explore for some big game and did manage to arrange for a boat before I left Mumbai.

The tackle carried was penn spinfisher 12 ft med/heavy rod parried with daiwa emcast 5500, quantum great white three piece travel spinning rod with 4000 series reel.

Here's a brief trip report & pictures of my visit to Tarkarli (Malvan) and some other locations on the west coast of Maharashtra.

Day one: After checking into mtdc resort, we decided to go on 3 hr boat ride in the evening to visit one sandy island which was created my the tsunami, watch dolphins, troll around one of the nearest rock formation on the burnt islands and get back in to the estuary before sunset. By the time we reached burnt island, the wind picked up and sea started getting rough.

Two rods were placed on opposite side and the lines were out, this was second time (1st on my own) that I was going to do trolling in sea and had a very limited idea on what to expect.
I got a hit in 5 mins, not knowing what fish it was, I declared to my wife that this must be a big mangrove jack (as if I know a lot :? ), after few mins the fish showed up with a clear high jump and I screamed QUEEN FISH .. hearing that "WOW good job" came a reply from my wife (as if she knows a lot :twisted: ). amazing fish and an amazing fight.

the lines were out again, as soon as I closed the bail arm.. whaaaam... with lot of drama and jumping around a nice Barracuda... the smile on my face was widening with every passing second. :D

The lines were out again and after few mins of silence, the rod got one more bend and the reel went for a song... some more jumping around and flashing of teeth's... a good about 3 ft barracuda was landed.

Within just 20 -30 mins of trolling, I asked the boat operator to take us back as the wind further picked up and the sea was now a bit more rough.

On second day since it was very windy and the waters rough, I decided that I will go alone for a boat trip to have a two hour trolling session.

for some reason, the boat guy came armed with a smaller 7 hp mariner engine and had a tough time controlling it on slow speed near to the rocks.

The trolling was now done on high speed and thus reducing the chances of hits.. after 20 mins I got a huge hit, a big GT and I could barely lift the rod.. I wanted the boat to stop but it was very close to the rocks and the boat could have drifted on the rocks had we done that... I found my self helpless with the boat and the fish running in different directions..... the fish was uncontrollable and it broke free after 2-3 mins .. :cry: :cry:

with the wind further picking up, we came back in to the estuary... I got the lines out at the mouth of the estuary in anticipation of hooking a fish I wanted to catch now for a long time.. immediate hit... but it was a barracuda and not a barramundi ... I yanked him out with frustration... 4 and half feet big guy.. :evil:

next two days were spent relaxing on the house boat and exploring the beautiful back waters... I did some spinning from the house boat on the evening of last day and landed three Small mangrove jacks......

Next morning we moved to another location on west coast .. this place does not have a estuary, but beautiful sandy beach and some rocks at the far end of the beach.. (Please PM me for exact location).

In the evening, while on the rocks watching the sun go down, I saw some feeding take place on the surface.. immediately got my three piece rod and casted out a firetiger.. half a dozen casts and nothing... after 15 mins.. I saw some feeding again.. since I had the rod next to me, I casted at the place where the feeding was taking place..few more cast and nothing took my lure.. I clipped on a red head, and on the very first cast my lure stopped half way... a beautiful jump in front of the half submerged sun, it was a the fish and the fight I wanted... a nice around 3.5 kg barramundi.. my first and will always be remembered... the evening was spent without any more fishing .. I had got what I wanted.

Next morning we went on the rocks.. this time in hope of getting some serious action.... and I did have some... three barra's landed (all fish between 10 to 14 lb), one big guy lost (jumped and threw back the hooks) two hits which I could not convert.. and all this in just one hour.. Later in the morning we started to get back home..

fish caught: 1 queen, 3 barracuda, 3 MJ, and 4 barramundis ..... lost one GT and barra.

I have promised the GT's that I'll be back. :wink:

Regards,

Santosh

pics later..

Hi santosh,

Good report man. Waiting for the pics. I know the GTs are there. Since the GTs stay close to structure and hold in deeper water they tend to stay out of the nets and just get bigger and meaner by the day. Would love to do a test popping there!

Hi Santosh,

What caught my eye was your second picture..... that definitely looks like GT country... Are there a lot of small islands like this?

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.

Thanks IG & Mken,... although I don't know much about Mahseer fishing and it is something I would love to try,.. but if compared to tank or other fresh water fishing that I have done, I find sea fishing much more interesting & challenging. Plan a trip here as there are many good locations on the west coast that you can try successfully.

MM, The place has many such islands (both small & big). The best time to visit the place is 3Q of year if you want to run in to shoals of GT's. But even in other times they are there along with some other beasties as the places doesn't get netted heavily due to rocky ocean floor.

Keyur, Yaj.. looking forward to the trip of 29/30 dec.

Yes Dean, the place is amazing .. I had a great time fishing there.. trust me, since I was on a vacation I could not do some hardcore fishing. All the sessions were limited to less than 2 hrs / day. I plan to go there again with better tackle (I regretted for not carrying deep divers). Till then the GT's will give me sleepless nights. I really enjoyed the barra fight on a 7ft travel rod.

BTW, I have recorded the fight with the queen.. will send you the link once I upload it.

Hi Santosh,

Nice article and good way of enjoying yr. wedding anniversary.
Infact i had been in Mumbai during Christmas time, and thought of you guys, but could not spare time. Before leaving from Dubai i dreamt of fishing with you'll at least for a day. Better luck next time.
Sorry for late note, bcs. i just read your article today after i came back from my vacation. Keyur told me that he had met you.
Wish you good luck and Happy Married Life. See that you don't overfish, but give time for your wife, else you know......ha ha. Enjoy youself.
All the best.

Ronald

Hi Ronald,

Don't worry mate, the Mumbai gang will be around till your next visit. For your next trip remember that we could always go and wet our lines at Powai for some time.

Thanks for the advice on my wedded life, dated my wife for 9 years and been married for 6 years (as its my 7th year, lets call it a 7 year itch.. :lol: ) so that's 15 long years [smilie=crying.gif].. I guess I am pretty safe here. :wink:

Visited Malvan again for a day on my way back from Mangalore. Trolled in the morning & did some beach fishing at night.

Total fish caught in a days fishing:
3 Mangrove jacks
2 Barra's
One unknown fish
Also hooked one giant which I was not able to land after a back breaking 45 mins long fight ... the fish took a last run when I thought its all over & broke my 100 Lb fireline. But it was the best fight I have ever had.


Some pictures from my recent trip to Malvan:


Please identify this fish


Fishermen with their catch





Caught 2 barras from the beach. 1st one at 8 PM on the and the 2nd one around mid night. My first barra's from the beach at Night.


Santosh

Cheers,
Madhur.
