Super stuff Scott and Abbey. Thats one solid fish. Great inspiration for the boys on the west coast. The Chennai guys caught a few fish on poppers. Will post the link here as soon as I locate it.

Thanks guys,

Hey Jeen some nice GT's down south too! I forgot that I saw that picture a while ago. And sure it would be much nicer to see those fish going back into the sea but each to their own!

All the best, Scott

Hi Scott,

True , sad to see those dead fish. When you catch a fish with intent to release one invariably handles the fish better, with more respect and you end up taking some true angling pictures.

But as you said each to himself.

cheers,

Jeen

Nice report Scott!

Do you guys kayak to those rocks or get the boat guys to drop you off and have them pick you up once you are done fishing. I do not fish from a boat, but did see some nice deep waters off some cliffs south of Goa that I'm planning to fish next time.

Have you tried surface skipping lures off those cliffs for pelagics?

Cheers, Maruthu

Hey mate,

We either fish from a boat or we pop directly from the rocks. Depends where on the coast we fish. To be fair though if you are going to pop from the rocks the venue has to be chosen very carefully in regards to fish safety. Some spots we used to fish are so full of underwater snags that they are not worth fishing. Of course it is hard to know this before a mark is fished but it pays to check at extreme low water to determine whether there will be a chance to actually extract a large GT should you be lucky enough to hook one.

There are a fair few spots out there that could produce good fish to anglers that put in the time and fish the correct tackle and certainly south Goa could throw up a few good specimens.

All the best, Scott

Thanks Scott!

I was not able to put in that much time before as I did not have anyone to fish with and did not want to risk fishing from the rocks all by myself. I shall start exploring the west coast once the rain stops. I'm more interested in fishing between Palolem and somewhere south of Gokarna. I was also able to see some nice river mouths (on the map) which looked very promising, but have to give it a shot, now that I have company, I can put in a lot of time and also explore more places ....

Cheers, Maruthu

Hi Guys,

headed out last night to a new spot to flick some lures for barra and jacks and Ashok managed to land this beauty...at one point a shoal of barra moved through and bites came frequently but hookups weren't that easy to secure. The fish seemed to be a little shy and instead of engulfing the lures they tested them gingerly by knocking them. I saw one good fish flash in the moonlight as it smacked my lure and turned to swim away. This is how it goes some days, and I think it could be for a number of reasons, but particularly the fish might be feeding heavily on a food source different to the size/shape of lures and so are a little hesitant when they come across a lure.

A couple of days ago we went for a troll and Cathal managed to land this beautiful mangrove jack of around 5kg

all the best, Scott

thats a nice beauty bara, and very true sometimes that bara will not touch your lure even if you see them feeding.
thats is when having diffrent size,shape and colour lures help

Awesome fish Scott... You never fail to amaze us! Would love to fish with you some day and learn the art.

@RaMpEr
I guess those are Halco Roosta Popper 195mm.

Humaid
