Hi All,

Last Saturday I had been to Tiruchendur temple (Near Tuticorin port) .I had carried my Shimano travel rod /reel as this place have a very nice beach and thought of doing little bit shore fishing for couple of hours.

One of our uncle who lives closer to this place also joined with us . He told me that instead of doing shore fishing, we can go into the sea and do some fishing .His friend is having some fiberglass boats and immediately he had arranged it for the ride.

The unfortunate thing is I had not carried the proper gear. Anyway we started and they took us 2 km inside to one Tsunami barricade where there will be plenty of fish and water will be clear.

After landing we had seen some fish jumping out of water and I had casted for couple of times. The rod handle broke on the third cast ( This was my 1 st rod and bought 12 years back) and the fun was over .Winded up everything.

We had spent some time and came back.

This place is called Periathalai 30 km away from Tiruchendur and on the way to Cape Comorin. Or Kanyakumari.

This fishing village had high casualties when the Tsunami hit some years back.

Some fish varieties caught by them on that day.

Happy fishing.

Did a Fish break your Rod Handle? or was it due to wear and tear?

Hi MM,

I was curious about the Bream, you rarely net so many Bream given their affinity for rocks. When we were small I used to join my neighbors who used gill nets to catch mullet, we used to drive the fish into the nets which was when we took a few bream along with the mullets.

Regards,

Bobby
