After waiting for two long weeks the sky seemed to be clearer of the Dust storm that is going on in the region. On Thursday evening plan was made to go for early morning fishing as it looked to be good time for the incoming tide and sunrise.
One of my earlier catch that i didnt wanted to post
My brother and I left early morning for the beach. Weather seemed to be good with clear blue sky and sea seemed to be calm. We reached the beach before sunrise and started immediately with float fishing, aatta was used as bait. Cast after cast we waited for our chance to hook a fish but then it was realized that there were no bites, in the mean time wind started to pick up and sea was no longer calm
we shifted from float fishing to bottom fishing and Squid was used as bait. There were few others along with us at the spot waiting for fish to have a bite but then slowly everyone started to leave and there were only two of us left.
It was 7:00Am and almost two and half hour were gone without a fish,
though we have not caught any considerable size of fish in a year but then we do catch smaller one. We were planning to leave, when our so called guru came and told us that the chances of catching fish are slim as the wind speed is too high and fish are not going to bite. We decided to wait for some more time and try our luck, suddenly we started to get few bites but we were not able to set the hook. Squid was now replaced by live fish as bait and we were getting bite after bite but then there was no luck again in converting them into catch. In the mean time our guru caught one flounder and one needlefish of more than 2Kgs (and that’s why he is our guru).
This one is caught by the Guru.
It was 8:00Am and it was time to leave so I started to pack our bags, suddenly I realized that my reel was moving and I grabbed the real and felt the pull. I knew very well that whatever it is on the other end is big enough. I started to reel in the fish slowly, it will be better to say very slowly, fish was in no mood to go down without a fight and for the first time I saw the fish taking to Air. I let the fish go for a run and again started to reel in. I was very scared not to loose the fish as it was a good size fish and on top of that it was supposed to be my first catch. The guy next to me told me to hand him over the reel so that he can reel in the fish as he was scared as well that I will loose the fish but then I wanted to feel the fight and told him that even if I loose the fish I don’t care but I want to fight the fish. Fish took to air again and my brother and myself were in wonderland seeing the fish going to air, slowly slowly I reeled in and once there was a moment where I felt that I should hand over the reel to other guy but he told me that I have almost got the fish and what im doing good so I carried on with what I was doing. During the fight fish took to air for more than four time and we were delighted when the fish was finally reeled in to the shore.
For the first time in a year that I have started to fish I caught a fish decent enough that I can post on to this forum and here for the first time I am posting picture of fish.
My First Catch.
Identification of fishes are needed.
Im very thankful the forum as I learnt a lot in last one year and it was very helpful while reeling my first catch.
I have seen people loosing fish because they wont let the fish go for a run and will break their lines but then when I was reeling, it was not a tug of war and I exactly knew when the fish wanted to go for the run and I did let it run and tried to tire out the fish so that I can have it easily. Once again I would like to thank you people and wish that from here on I can carry on the same way.
