Last week was one memorable one for us.

As usual we head out before the first ray of light. ksahif (Hassan) was at the spot the earlier night @ 1100 and when I call him @ 0530 I am told that he was shooed off by the security (what a spoil sport) ignoring the warning we start to fish some lines released with sardine cut bait and accompanied by 2 rookies. Was kinda difficult to explain them what not to do. Looks like they thought we were fooling around :) A few cast and Keyur lands a small barracuda. so I change places and now we have 4 guys casting in one place. The rookies did not mind casting over our head (we did) :oops: Was kinda difficult to cast confidently when someone is at your back waiting to cast you never know you might get their jewels on your trebles :p
Whilst trying to convince the rookie and reeling in at the same time. I picked a strike a king surfaced but spat the hook sooner as I did not strike. The same mistake second time (I shouldn't be talking whilst spinning) but this time I had someone else to blame, the lad at the back :) I mean I had to because some had to take the blame right so be it the rookie :) A few moments later keyur's ire tiger invites a strike with some awesome splashes. A good BIG pickhandle barracuda measuring some 96 cms weighing 3 kgs is landed and then there is a another strike on his bottom rig line a grouper gets hold of his bait this time and make a run into the rocks never to come back. The rod is placed in the holder and we start spinning again Keyur lands a similar sized cuda. They were big i mean big as I have ever seen myself landed from shore. Their tail portion could not fit my palm. Soon to come were some chases by cudas and grouper on my lures and no takes. By now the grouper decided to make a run off its hide and there as expected the braid gives in and the fish is lost. After an hour odd we change places to original and there is another take on a sardine. Grouper once again, i need not repeat the above story as it was the same thing again just that this time before the grouper could make its second run the security made the first move and told us to get lost we tried to ask them a few questions just to buy some time as the fish was still there on the line and just wont come out. Finally we unwillingly apologized to the security and started packing our tackle. The grouper till the end would not give us so have to break and line and leave. In all 3 cudas landed by Keyur his PB. This season has been the best for as we have had quite a few PB listed in our books.

We plan to go to the same place next friday and wont be willing to land our sorry AR** behind bars playing mobile games :) This time my GM plans to join us So I guess we will have company. Wish us luck if you dont hear from us next we are busy counting day or waiting for smeone to bail us out :)

Tight lines - DeZZ

Pics will be uploaded if keyur wants them to be uploaded. For those who are on his FB have already had the glimpse of it.

We had a scheduled Friday boat trip which I had to call off of due to bad throat.
My hands were itching in the evening so decide to spin some lures in the close vicinity and the moment I reached there I found everyone leaving. To my surprise there was one Brit still fishing. i was told that the authorities were there and were asking for fishing license, those who did not have had to leave. I reached barely a couple minutes later. Though i have a license I was not carrying it. We were sharing our experiences and the Brit told me he had never heard of a MJ and I raised my eyebrows. Whilst I was spinning lures the guys calls out to me and i could see his light tackle taking a swing in all directions, he pulls out the fish and guess what?? A small MJ, I was happy and sad at the same time. I spin for a while and then made a move home as I had a scheduled trip the nest morning.
Saturday, morning along with my wife and one of my friends head out to the black palace. Extreme low tide, perfect water temperature. I cast one line with cut sardine and another with squid head. I come across with other Filipino friends who I knew of. the were casting jigs and slice. I stick to rapala perch. A few moments and one of these guy lands a small king mack. I get a strike on the sardine cut bait, but I did not realize the fish was still on and nibbling the bait, failed strike and the fish steals my bait and runs off. I and back to spinning and pick up a strike the fish is hooked but I trip on a crab or something in the water "those creepy crawlies" and in those moments the fish is off the hooks. Third strike on the sardine rod and a missed strike again. Damn!!! That place is known for some big breams and spangled emperors. Back to spinning and this time I make no mistake a barracuda takes my lure. Gives a good fight and some awesome display of splashes. Comes close to the shore and takes a few mighty strides but is finally owned. Could have weighed around 800 grams to a kilo and a length of 2 feet approx. A good half an hour and some missed strike by the Filipinos and the sardine rods is at ti again. The ROD yes the rod it was taking some serious pulls and my oh my what joy within, thought I am going to land some 20 pounder. I get hold of the rod and a mighty strike and a confirmed hook up a couple strides and it feels as if the catch was a kamikaze pilot. It headed straight in my direction and a good size spangled emperor was landed weighed approx 1 kg. The fish had enough strength to bend my rod to a good 30+ degrees. Not much happened later, though we witnessed a lot of feeding frenzy. We called it a day @ 0815.

Apologies but no photos for the shaari and the cuda, below is the amateur photo of a MJ.

A Low tide morning and we decided to fish the black palace as so far it has been giving us some awesome results. Needless to say we have had our PB from that very beach and that very corner. We reach there by 0530 hrs just in time but could see others already there just before time occupying the best spots but casting in wrong direction. Since I had my rods all set up I made the first cast deep into the channel. For this I had to enter the restricted area cast a mile and run back for life. A couple of them were taking risks under the cover of darkness, but never had any takes. I then stared spinning a yozuri look alike but no takes through out the day. Meanwhile Keyur had two of his lines released in the very direction. While I was changing lures, Keyur had a take and a cuda as expected showed up. A few moments my 9' takes a bow. By the amount of bend I am always surprised when I land the fish and I am concerned if it were twice the size. "GOD Bless my 9' rod". By the fight of it it was known it was a spangled emperor. The fish was a decent size could have been 1.5 kg odd did not weigh it though. Second cast in the same place and a nibble and the bait is shredded. Don't really know how the fish missed 2 hooks on a quarter of a sardine. Next cast and I was quite close to the rod wasnt much of a bend but this was a typical pull definitely not identical to that or a shaari or a catfish. A pull and a stop. I got the rod in my hands and could feel someone stealing my bait smoothly. A tender jerk and the hooks had done their job. But this time I was in for a surprise. The fish made a run towards me and I had a clue what it could be from this behavior but then as reconfirmed by Keyur it had to be a "Silver Grunter". How couldn't have guessed it any better.. Yes! It was a Nagroor (Silver Grunter) and a good size. These was caught almost a year ago never had any takes thereafter. Then started a series of landings by Keyur. He got one Shaari and 3 more silver grunters all came in with a quick succession while he was reeling in we were mute spectators. We had a company of one Mr Lendly, who managed a couple of tripods and finally managed a sand bream. @ 0900 hrs we called it a day.

Thanks Mayur, Shyam, Raka, Apoo and Mario.

I still believe that barra's are anytime better :) More better if you haven't caught them before.

Cheers - DeZZ

Yet another good day of fishing!!

Friday, expected low tides and easy access to the restricted area under the cover of darkness. We reached the spot at 0430 hrs rods were all set up as we got off the car and as soon as we reached the spot were ready in minutes to cast. I have my rod ready with sardine as cut bait on a running rig. I get into the restricted area and run as far as I could covering a lot of ground almost a 70 meters and cast out right into the channel and run back that makes it a 140 meters run. (Wow! All for the love of fish) The moment I stopped I have a small tug and then another one and then a strike and yippee fish on. The fish took strides and some couple line stripping runs. Fought well..it wasn't a spangled emperor this time neither a nagroor. What could it be that was fighting till the last. To my awful surprise and dismay, it was a CATFISH. A CATFISH....The whole year they disappeared and this one showed up when we were about the close the season.



Whilst I was fighting Keyur had already cast his line and was getting ready to cast another one. Just before he could he had a strike on the first one. The fish have him some epic runs and never expected to be a spangled emperor and that too his PB a a matter of fact it was the biggest of all the spangled emperors we have caught from shore and those of which are posted on this forum. It measure 58 cms and weight @ 2.8 KGS. (Weighed way too less for its size)


Within a span of an 45 minutes to an hour or so we bagged 8 fishes.




Keyur A/C:
Spangled Emperors - 3
Silver Bream - 1 (Was one big bream and a good fish for the plate)
Bartail Flathead - 1

DeZZ
Catfish - 1 :(
Silver Grunter - 1
Spangled Emperor - 1

Fair chances that I might go there next weekend. Perhaps a COBIA might show up :)

Cheers - DeZZ

Darryl,

It does look like a sykes dagger but its some spanish shark knife. Was lying in my dads cupboard and was gathering dust. I thought of putting it to use :)

Thanks @ Raka and Irfan.

PS: You've got coconut palm but you couldn't beat me. I hooked into a boat that striped 80% of my braid
ROFL!! Tum purush hi nahin ho, mahapurush ho Dezz!:)))

Santosh- et tu brut..? :))) So even experts were once amateurs, i can see! I still have hope at the end of my line I guess!
Been having some miserable days on the seaside getting tanned to a shade more than my hair and not doing anything more than 'feeding MJs and Cats loads of sardine heads' as my wife says!!LOL
Some day.... kahin door jab din dhal jaaye... shyam.. bada machchi pakdegaa :)
