Hi Everyone,
It was work again on Monday morning (16th November) after two days of Angling at Harihareshwar after we returned late on Sunday evening back home. Hence the delay in sending my report.
Finally 26 Anglers participated and reached Harihareshwar late evening on Friday, the 13th! The weather looked promising after the disappearance of Cyclone ‘Phyan’. We chalked out the Plan for Saturday morning and decided to try Bankot Beach.

Image


Every one was ready early in the morning and we boarded the Ferry Boat at Harihareshwar Jetty at 7.30 a.m.that took us all and our seven vehicles as well and took us across the estuary to Bankot. It was a sunny morning. At jetty, while waiting for Ferry, Scot, Abby and Pierre tried some spinning and bait casting, but there were no hits.
We reached the Beach and all 26 Anglers scattered along the Beach and selected their spot. The water looked good, however there were no strikes as expected. Soon Keith landed a small ‘Therapon Jarbua’ on squid bait and his father William too landed an ‘Electric Ray’ around 1 kg. Raju Patil caught his First ever Fish, again a small ‘Therapon Jarbua’. We learnt that Santosh caught and released two catfishes. Others had no strikes at all. The overall result was not encouraging and veryone packed up and returned for much needed Lunch at our Lodge.

We decided to try the rocks behind Temple in the evening session and after a brief rest headed for rocks at around 4.0 p.m. The high tide was at 10.00p.m. The group had few Bait Casters and others were doing Spinning. However, there were no hits to Spinning nor to baits. It was a great disappointment and by 7.00 p.m. most of the Anglers returned to our Lodge. There was a news that an Earthquake (Mild) occurred and was felt in Pune and Mumbai at around 4.30 p.m. So everyone concluded that earthquake was the reason for fish not feeding and chasing our lures.
But the Gloom vanished when Scot arrived in Lodge with a magnificient ‘Red Snapper’. Someone fetched a weighing scale and weighed the Fish. It weighed 4.0 Kg. Scot was showered with Greetings. Every one was so happy and spirits soared high! There was another surprise soon, when Neil arrived with another Red Snapper, though smaller than Scot’s. Soon the Cameras came out and the Lodge was lighted with Camera Flashes! Neil reported that within 30 minutes he hooked another two Groupers and landed them. He however took snaps and released them, each weighing about a kg. each.
Now the Camp atmosphere got changed and there was a solid ‘Turn Around’. Everybody went to sleep early, dreaming about Sunday morning session again on Rocks.
But the Weather Gods were against us and it rained continuously and heavily. So the early risers were again disappointed as it was still raining at 5.00 a.m in the morning. Abby and Scot were the first to leave at 5.40 a.m and they went to a new spot called ‘Head’. Myself, Neil, Sanju and Atul left at 6.00 a.m and went behind MTDC. Luckily the rains stopped this time.

When the first rays of the sun were visible, we started casting with lures. We shifted from one location to other from 6.00 a.m to 11.00 a.m , But no one of us had any hits. All type of lures were tried, but in vain. In the mean time, William m and his son Keith arrived and reported that William caught a small Bream on squid.
Abhijeet started from Behind temple and came near us. He had no strikes. He continued spinning with his ‘Fire Tiger’ Lure and soon he got a hit and he landed a nice Grouper of around 1.5 kg.
Vilas, in the meantime hooked a Grouper behind temple on his bait of Squid. It was around 1.00kg. he photographed it and then released it.
At 1.30 p.m we called it a Day and returned to Lodge for lunch and packed our tackle.
After Lunch, we hada ‘Prize Distribution Ceremony.
As announced already, we had three categories for Competition:
a) The Biggest catch.
b) The Maximum catch by an individual angler and
c) The Longest Cast.
However, we could not arrange the ‘Longest cast’ Tournament and therefore decided to award this Prize to an youngest Competitor among the participants.
The Prize Winners were:
Mr. Scot (World Fisher) for the Biggest Catch (4.0Kg.Red Snapper)
Mr. Neil ( Heliox65) for Maximum catch.
And Mr. Marcus from Austria for Youngest Competitor among all participants (Age: 25 Yrs.)
The Prizes were awarded by a Senior member, Mr. William mascarennas.
The last but not the least, the lucky individuals who were successful in catching were as under:
Vilas Rele: 1 Grouper ( Around 1 Kg)
William M: 1 Bream & 1 Sting Ray (Around 1 Kg each)
Abhijeet (Spoon Angler): 1 Grouper ( Around 1.5 Kg)
Balamama: 1 Grouper (Around 1 Kg)
Neil: 2 Groupers ( Around 1 Kg each0 & 1 MJ (Around 1 Kg)
Scot (World Fisher): 1 Red Snapper (4.0Kg) & 1 Finger Mark (Around 1 Kg)
The Competition ended with a Vote of Thanks to Organizers and Three Cheers for Indian Angler.com

I request those participants who have taken pics with their cameras to host their pics on Forum please.

I shall host the pics later, as I am facing some problem in hosting them now.

Regards,


Arun

I would like to say a big thank you to the organizers of the Competiton and ofcourse the Indian Angler website to make this a reality. It was my first ever experience fishing in a competition and I enjoyed every minute of it. Even though we did not have the ideal conditions for fishing, we were a great team of Anglers, from Professionals to a a first timer. It was a great chance to spend time with fellow Anglers - exchanging fishing stories , ideas and fishing locations and spots.

Hope the competition is held every six months in the future and we have more participants in the future ones to come.


Tight Lines :lol:

Looks like you all had a great laugh even if the fishing was a bit hard.
I really must make the effort to join you guys on a future session at some point.

BTW. I now have a name for the "tigerfish" that I caught a couple of years ago but does anyone know the latin ?

Great stuff guys & congrats to the winners.

Hats off to all you guys who made it a grand success. At these times, although everyone wants to win prizes, its bonding with fellow anglers, socialising & making friends that wins over any competition.

Well done & hope to catch up with some of you when I'm back in Bombay for my hols.

regards,
Keyur

Thanks to all who put in time and effort to make the competition a resounding success. I was unable to make it due to a viral fever and am still recovering from it.

Congratulations to the winners and those trophies look great!

Cheers
