Understanding angling is a very difficult job. Many have tried to define this sport in vain but all agree that it is much more than catching some fishes. To me it is combination of elements which makes this sport an enthralling experience.

This trip of ours was one such experience which is almost impossible to describe in words. This was the first time Ken was trying his hands on beach fishing and the presence of Aliya and her unending enthusiasm was enough to make any trip memorable.

The combination of a pristine beach with Crystal clear water, the ambiance of sea breakers with the call of snipes and curlews along with line ripping from the reel, the back breaking fights and in the end the satisfied smile on the face of all present on watching the beauty of a monster swim away peacefully to the safety of depth, while being released after a great fight, were the elements which made this trip a great success.

The high of this trip was Babloo catching a Bull Shark, a double header by Santosh and Ken, where the landed a 15 Kg an 12 Kg Leopard Ray and had the fight of there life time, Rajat catching a Cobia (Not sure whether it is a Cobia or some other fish) and Aliya catching a flat fish from a puddle in the rocks.

Just to give a glimpse of the trip, I have made a video. Here is the link.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_q93U40HiI

Here are some of the fishes of note.

Good one boys, keep doing it.

Loved the video, especially the bit that said "The Cast and the Whale" :lol: :lol:

Rajat's fish looked very remora like, but you would obviously be able to tell from the top of the head.

Very Nice vedio Ali.. what fun trip we had.
Pound to pound nothing beats a ray.. I can still feel the rush I had when the fish was giving fast runs on full drag.. I am again planning to be there in next few weeks.

Ken, thanks for comming down with Aliya.. :))

OHHH! Please don't say that. I have not stopped thinking, dreaming and planning ways to get back to the Kokan coast after that wonderful trip with the bunch of you.

Now I am looking for ways to get kicked out of home.
