Hi Guys.. had been on a vaccation hence could not reply to add to this thread in time..

I had been to Gorai..i guess u guys must be knowing this place its about 35 Km from Mumbai.. had been out with family..

i did manage to take time out for some rock fishing. Managed to catch some fish.. u guys need to help me out with the english version..in Marathi its called ekru, boi, palu... used the prawns available on manori beach.. the fisher lady willing gave some to me...

i met some local fishermen there.. they were talking of some big fish caught recently there.. they told me some guys from Orlem caught the fish..

hey.. anyone having the tide table.. had seen one link on this IA site.. i guess it was posted by Garry.. but it doesnt work

Hey Vishal

Ekru is Grouper or rock Cod
Palu is called Bream in english
Boi - is Mullet

Palu and Boi normally run at this time of the year when its hot and the sea is calm like glass

If your lucky you can hit a school of Palu or Boi and have a bag full in a couple of hours .. Next time your there take some of the rotting prawn or Jowla that they call it and ground bait the area before you bait the hook .. use the same Jowla on a size 10 hook with a couple of shot and a 2 1.2 inch peacok float . Its works like magic but wear dark clothes and make no sudden movements or all your effort is in vain

I have caught over 50 large Palu and some 40 Boi in 2 hours . these are the only 2 fish that you can float fish in a school together

[quote="Fredfish"]Hey Vishal

Palu is called Bream in english


Hi Fredfish
Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Bream a fresh water fish found in England ? How does it land up in our seas off Gorai ??!

There is also a Bony Bream that I caught in Hong Kong and is one smelly fish:

How the heck do you send him a tip without knowing the inner dia of the old one ?
You need to gently heat the tip top with a lighter (gentley dont jigger the rod) and then remove the tip pulling straight up with a plier.
If the new tip top sits loose on the rod, use a wrapping of silk thread or parachute line etc on the rod where the new tip should sit, and then use a rubberised glue to stick on the new one. If you have hot melt glue, that would be ideal.
The best way to get the right matching tip and guide would be as follows:
You would need a vernier to measure the inner dia of your old tip(where it sits on the rod), and also measure the inner dia of the guide ring itself.

I have some sets of guides too, if you give me the details as above, i will check if i have something suitable.
However remember that i am a river bum and Fred's tips are likely to be more suitable. :lol:

Heck here goes another post on the wrong thread.
Guys this is a location &trip planner thread, what the heck are we doing discussing guides and tips here ?

Precision is the name of the game Gavin! Not like the bamboo rods with notches 1 cm off center.
You, dude need some serious lessons in rod making and repair, and you can tell that to the dude who made those bamboo rods too.
