Decided to put on a Sebile Flatt Shad lure and troll the river in Goa recently.

This is a vibe (vibrating metal) lure in the Firetiger pattern and was picked up on a sale for less than $5 Aussie. Although it is a cast and retrieve lure, it can be trolled quite effectively and at any depth.

The grouper caught below attests to that.

Will try to get a better picture of the fish and lure, if possible.

It was quite difficult to photograph as it was squirming a lot and I did not fancy getting near those sharp Sebile hooks at this stage.

The grouper has hit the front treble hooks, rather than the tail hook. Presumably, it attacked the lure from below and out of its rocky lair ...... rather than chase it from the rear.

Interestingly, it disgorged a bushel full of small baitfish that were hardly an inch long, some of the bait had an uncanny resemblance to Barramundi fish fry. However, we did not catch any barra this trip.

Thanks, Vijay.

The grouper was sent back to the river safely but the look on the face of the guide was priceless when it was released!

By the way, has the beach and river now been finally cleared of the garbage where we fished in Chennai?

Nice grouper there Kingfish!
It is always exciting to try new lures out, let alone catch anything with it.

Me and my friends managed to catch some MJs during New year's eve on the west coast. I wish I took more pictures, but sometimes it is easier to just turn on the GoPro and keep fishing specially while practicing catch and release for the most part. Here's a little video I made and I hope you like it....

Hello Venkat,

Yes, the firetiger pattern seems to catch a variety of fish, both in fresh and saltwater.

No recent reports from you?

Thank you Kingfish!

Her name is Annette and I met her about a couple of years ago in Bangalore.
She's just getting into fishing and likes it. I just have to make sure that she's back at safety before dark, otherwise she gets paranoid on the rocks at night.

Will try to get more photos from my upcoming trips, along with the videos and report back. Hopefully from March 2019 :)

Cheers!

Maruthu,

That is your best catch!

Nice to have a wife that shares your interest ...... you can enjoy so many trips together. I do speak from personal experience!

The grouper above was caught by my wife, she is the one holding it in the pictures.

Regards to both of you from us,

Nice catch Kingfish!!
Since you have posted about goa and i have seen a lot of your angling expeditions in this city, you would be the best person to help me out.
I am going to goa in Feb and staying first at Cavelossim and then at agonda.
Is it allowed to fish from cavelossim beach and agonda beach(and rocks on the south of the beach)? Any restrictions or license requirements.

I'll soon be posting about it with all the tackle i have prepared but i am still collecting information to know more about Goa.

Hello Navodit,

You flatter me .... I am an infrequent visitor to Goa and there are far more knowledgeable anglers than me who may guide you about angling there.

However, from my experience, there is no licence requirement for coastal fishing either from the beaches or the rocks.

Some of the larger 5 star hotels have their own private beaches where you may not be allowed to fish unless you are a guest of the hotel.

You should also look at chartering a boat for a few hours ( quite expensive) so you can go out fishing on the ocean. Here you would troll lures normally but there are places where you may be able to baitfish
as well.

We would all be interested in seeing what gear you will take with you and wish you success in Goa.
