Had a nice trip to Durg.Made the journey with my brother and his family.Got the snorkeling gear out and with the windsurfer tied to the top of the vehicle we were ready to go.
Had a new Daiwa Catalina reel to try out so was looking forward to tangling with the reef cod's and other unstoppables out on the reef where i had lost a lot of fish and lures!!.
Reached Durg at 3pm and even though the kids were tired out with the drive they all jumped into the boat at 5pm and we were off to the reef.
Two minutes after the lines were out had a hit and in came a small reef cod of around 10 pounds.



As they had never been fishing before there was so much excitement from the brother's family you would think it was a marlin.
You can imagine the level of astonsihment when on the next stike I landed what turned out to be a personal best reef cod of 34 pounds!The fish was released after a quick photo.The new reel proved its worth.Very smooth drag even at the higher end of its range.


The next morning my brother Clement could not stop grinning becaue his very first fish caught on a rod was a 32 pound reef cod.


The kids had a ball catching a mix of reef cods,yellow fin trevally,MJ's .









My brother's wife Annabelle was upset as she was the only one left out until our last session when she also landed one.The mix of emotions on her face from joy at the hookup to the strain of landing the fish was interesting.



Saw a lot of trevally swimming/Feeding around but all efforts with the poppers did not seem to interest them at all.



Managed to land a nice barra of 22 pounds after a decent fight.




We spent a fair bit of time on the beaches around Durg.Some of the most beautiful and relaxing moments i have had.Also did a bit of windsurfing /snorkelling much to the curioiusty of the local population.
Fairly decent visibilty underwater of around 10 feet.






Came up against a small sting ray while snorkelling which made us a bit careful about where we put our feet while swimming.

Drove down to Devgad and had a look around.Devgad also has a nice beach and the views from the light house inside the fort were amazing.Unfortunately had not taken the camera there.
There was so much more than just fishing on this trip that made it so enjoyable.The beauty of the konkan especially after the late rains was unforgettable.


Drove back via the gagan bavda route to kolahpur then pune-mumbai.Pretty bad road from Gagan bavda to kolahpur.The drive down from Kolahpur to mumbai on the NH4 was much more comfortable than the NH17.
The kids are already asking when they can go again!!
