Hi Everyone,

Merry christmas to all and advance new year wishes.

For past 6 months i was waiting for this screaming sound from my reel. it happened yesterday.

As usual me, binu and suresh (not a member) landed chennai fishing harbor. This time it was quite late. We usually be there before 7am. Yesterday it was 9am. we planned to do some popping for GT. There was very less hopes when we started. My daiwa samurai was struck and i was trying to fix it.

Binu running to me and shouting loudly, hey GT,GT, come on man. But i cannot do anything since my reel struck and i dont have any spare reel for GT fishing.

i was advised my binu to use shakespeare (smaller one) with a small popper. With no hope i tried several cast, but nothing. With full frustration i gave a big cast, my popper released from the line and flew in to the sea.

I was telling my self this is not your day mani. Go ahead do some bait fishing.

I took my small boat rod and shakespeare reel,hooked sardin tail piece ad waiting. There was a hit and i started retrieving. I felt there was some huge struck in my hook. I thought it was a fish. BUt luckly it was a big plastic cover with full of water.

Kids around me was laughing at me, clapping and havnig fun for my madness.

In the next throw there was again a netted bag. big applause again.
Again i tried with fresh tail piece of sardin. Few minutes of my cast there was good hit. But not like fish hit. for me it seems to be like crab or something. When i gave a big jerk from my rod. my reel started screaming like anything. Now im sure it was some fish.

kids around me were shouting this is another plastic cover.hahahhaaaaaa

Im sure it is my giant. Line was pulled for more than 5 minutes. This is my first experience like this. i was so excited and shouting. Binu came near to me and guided to pull it back. We had fight for more than 10 minutes. SInce it is rocky area im not able to land it.

So we asked a local fishermen to help me out. He pulled it carefully and landed it. but this fish is not so lazy. gave a run near landing and flew into the rocks. My line got cut.

But we saw the fish. It was string ray something like 2kgs around.

I always use heavy line in this area, but yesterday i just gave a try with this 4lb mono. I never had this hit when i use some heavy line and monos. Fishes are clever most of the time.

i had great fun hearing my reel screaming sound after long time. It was mind blowing and i jsut forgot myself for few moment.

Thanks to the sting ray.

Im gonna change my name from salmonmani to stringray mani.

Cheers,
Mani

I am sure that this hook up and subsiquently a lost fish after a fight will act as a better motivation to you to go fishing again. The dreams about the one that which got away are sweeter than the landed one. :lol: :lol:

Regards,

Ali.

Though I am a total Freshwater angler I have one observation about saltwater fishing. Anything in any size can hit you at anytime!

Best of luck next time mate.

If you go for Salt water fishing for long duration, this hitting part is not confined to fishes only. :twisted: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
