Guys,

After the thumping success of the first ever All India Saltwater Angling competition, courtesy to Indian Angler, every one was eager for the second edition.

On behalf of Indian Angler, I am happy to announce that the second edition will be organized in the month of November. Below are the details:-

Date : 14th Nov. 2009-15th Nov. 2009

Venue : Harnai (Dapoli) Cancelled New Venue is Harihareshwar.

Reporting : 13th Nov. 2009 (Night)

Type of Fishing : Beach/ Surf Fishing

Maximum Rods : Two per participant.

Bait : Bring it with you (Ice Packed)/ Arrange locally.

Transportation : Self or combine with local participants.

Charges : 1200.00 INR

Coordinators : angler_ali, santosh, Arun Mohile

The sprit behind this competition is to promote the sport angling. Total catch and release is mandatory. The prizes will be as follows. (1) Biggest Catch, (2) Maximum number of Catch, (3) Longest Cast and (4) Accurate Cast. Drinking, during fishing is not allowed. Sea Fishing is dangerous and every one is requested to observe maximum safety during the competition. ANY ONE PARTICIPATING IN THIS COMPETITION WILL DO SO ON HIS OWN RISK.


Other than individual competition, city teams can also participate.

Participants are requested to bring along with them all their tackles etc. Kindly include rod stands (PVC Pipes) in your tackles. It is very difficult to arrange baits etc. for every one, it will be advisable that the participants bring/ arrange their own bait. For live baiting you can use your mullet trap, throw nets or sabiki rigs.

Last date of entry is 25th Sep.2009

Any one interested to donate any prize is most welcome and can contact the coordinators.

Regards,

Ali.

Hi Ali,

Excellent mate! :D sounds really good.! I'll see you there. Good rule about no drinking. It would be a shame to end such a great event with a disaster!

I better start preparing a plan!

All the best, Scott

Im going to try and come for this, even if i dont come prepared to catch. It would be excellent to see the masters at work !

Oh and just a off question, is there a minimum weight for a fish to be counted? What if you catch a whole lot of bait fish using a net :P

I and Ali will be visiting harnai before the competition for sure and will make proper arrangements for accommodation and food for all members.

We know one resort which is right on the beach and serves excellent sea food. The main fishing spot on the beach is hardly 2 mins walk from where will be staying. Cost will be informed once we negotiate a deal with the resort management on AP basis.

Santosh, thanks a lot for the tips. I was checking out some your posts about your visits to Tarkarli. One of these have fishing from some sort of a jetty, is this the place you were referring to?

I was thinking of casting with some lures from there at dawn/early morning. You think its a good idea.

Also, will bait fishing be imperative or lure fishing may also work (or will it be a waste of time).
