hello all! taken me ages to fix pc resize fotos etc.. here goes!! arrived in delhi with fishing gear


we rested and made a plan. we decided to explore delhi for 3 days then we would go to chennai. we aimed to do some trekking /fishing inland from there.

we got to our camp, isolated and nice, where we met a danish couple. his name was thomas and we ended fishing together in different places. he also was going to the andaman islands in 2 weeks, and as he had already booked a boat i hooked on to his ride.

we started fishing for mahseer with spinners and in the afternoon with ragi. all was quiet for me except for a invasive / introduced breed (id anyone?)


thomas on the other hand had hooked something large! The cunning fish had snagged him and so thomas bravely jumped in the water swam out, unsnagged from the underground branch( 10m from crocodile point!) and carried on the fight on a central island.


we got a coracle out to him and he got the fish back to bank after a good fight. obligatory celebrations and photo!!


i was sad that i missed out on a mahseer, but decided i will go back again!! that night we planned our andaman trip . i would arrive first in havelock, thomas one week later. we said goodbye and headed back to chennai for the mamallapuram dance festival and a bit of culture. unfortunately i lost my phone, (which created allsorts of problems!!) and then was ill for three days, resurfacing just in time to go to the andaman islands.

after a good journey to havelock, saw jumping tuna and dolphins, we booked in and relaxed. beautiful place, falling coconuts an lots of wildlife. saw loads of fish jumping out of the water outside my bungalow!!
we spent the next week exploring, rented motorbike, and all the while i checked prices with locals for boat rental. internet was permanently down there, so had my choices limited.

i chose a boat of locals for fishing trips and snorkeling, made sure they knew their stuff, and off we went!! spent 2 days fishing with them on a local dunghe. got a great variety of table fish which we ate and released the other 90%





on the second day i was trolling with the gear attached, in 12m of water, with a large lure, and i almost got ripped off the boat by something huge!!


it was extremely powerful and just went in a straight line ! i gave it everything i could , tried to stop it, with people holding on to the back of my harness. but no way.!! eventually it found its cave, whilst we sat circling and pulling with all our might. no joy. we went swimming to find out what was going on , and we saw line went down into a cave at 12 m deep. we couldnt see what it was or the lure.. eventually it spat my artificial out badly damaged!! it had bent a 250lb split ring nastily!!
we all discussed it and the owner decided it must be a giant tiger grouper. he reckoned +200kg!! he said biggest seen there was 300kg 3m!!! i spent the next 2 days recovering physically!

My buddy thomas turned up and we spent the next 4 days fishing on his pre-planned boat. we went popping and spinning for gt´s and trolling generally. wow! great fun!!













that giant trevally was the largest one of the trip, what a fight!! we guestimate it at aprox 25kg.

all in all a brilliant trip! great place, fantastic people, tasty food,and AWESOME FISHING!

thankyou to all who helped me, posted me, gave advice, pointed me in the right direction etc.. and sorry to those i didn´t meet up with! (losing phone bad plan!!)

promised myself i will be back again sometime soon!!
regards to all, tight lines . greg

I've got a few hundred photos from the Fiji trip and a couple of hours of video but I haven't written a report or tried to load photos - not something I've ever done although I've no doubt it's not too difficult. My computer is in need of a serios rebuild as well!
I'm very lucky in having a good friend with a diving and fishing business on one of the tiny holiday islands (just opposite where the film Castaway was made) and after trying to get me to visit for many years I finally went. I can't wait to get out there again now.

When did you fish Nasser and how did you get on? It's not as good as it once was which is all too familiar in these times, Egypt and India fished much better for big fish ten years ago. I now fish for nile Perch in Uganda which is simply amazing, I was addicted to Indian fishing until I went there.

hi andy. havent been to nasser yet. ..It was reccomended by egyptian friend and i will kind of save it for the future when im more experienced, along with tarpon and some amazonian creatures!! Yes i´ve seen reports on uganda. Good catfish too i see. glad to see indian angler hasnt lost you to ugandan angler. hehe

I guess the fishing pressure is less? anyplace you reccommend ? What about sizes? I take it uganda is spinning only, not trolling?

cheers regards mopa

Hi Greg

I may be addicted to Uganda but they don't have mahseer! I'd go to India and Uganda (and Fiji) every year but funds don't permit evrything I'd love to do. I've fished the Cauvery five times (about 14 weeks on the bank) and am unlikely to ever catch a bigger mahseer than I've had but I still love the place and I'd go back tomorrow.

We fish the Nile at Murchison Falls in Uganda as Lake Victoria is no longer a reliable destination due to commercial overfishing - you only catch very few small perch there now although there is always an outside chance of a monster.

We've had perch to 158lbs (about 72kg) from the river using lures, deadbaits and livebaits. You can troll on the river but we haven't really done this as there is never enough time to do everything and the hours just melt away!
Very good catfishing for numerous bagrus cats plus the occasional vundu. We've had bagrus to 48lbs but they reputedly go to over 100lbs.

The wildlife viewing is amazing and the biggest downside is the tsetse flies which are a pain in the arse....... and the legs, face, arms etc. Expect 100 plus bites in two weeks (they have no respect for repellant). It is also a high malaria risk region so you need the anti-malaria tablets or you will probably get it.

Tarpon are fantastic, I've only fished for them in Florida Keys and it's outside my affordability now but they are well worth a go.
I'd love to get an arapaima from South America (not Thailand!) and maybe peacock bass as well but they will have to wait.

Andy

Hi Jeen/Mopa

40kg GT's from the shore is awesome and I presume that means there is no coral or rocks to get cut off on. A friend of mine has had them to 58lbs (26kg) from the shore on fly fishing tackle which just sounds crazy.

The West African coast probably has the biggest tarpon in fact I think the world record may have come from there somewhere. They certainly run to over 200lbs in Florida but I think the record is over 300lbs.

I've been fishing in England since about 8 years old and I'm now 51 so I don't suppose I'd be classed as a novice any more. There's always plenty of new things to learn though as well as new places to go. I am very, very lucky to have good friends who travel with me to various countries as well as those friends living in Fiji and I've certainly had some amazing experiences. Hopefully plenty more to come too!

Aligator gar are also on my "to do" list and I looked into a trip for them this year before settling on a return to Uganda.

Andy

hey santosh. yes october is good. season is may to november .. also will find fish called ¨anjova¨ linecutters!! grow large aswell. there are many small boat rental places near the delta del ebro, you should have no problems finding them. The fish feed in aprox 20m of water in the bays close to shore, but you do need a boat and if you can a guide /driver who can take you to the best places... :D Its a dream fishing location really with tuna ,pomatomus saltatrix (anjova) large seriola dumerii and much more.. Well worth it . will try and find you some more info..

regards mopa
