hey bops,
i was also thinking the same thing. i thought that probably i would add two more sleeves to the leader which would provide additional strength. i secure the leader by pressing the sleeves with a plier. so maybe the sleeves may not have been that secure. ill try making some new ones

regards,
abhi

Hi Spoonangler,

I would prefer a Fluro Carbon Leader or plain old Mono about 60 to 80 Lb to wire leader. The fluro is almost invisible in water. Connect a meter long leader to the plug by way of a rapalla knot and the leader to the main line 20/30lb ? with a good barell swivel.
THe occasional barracuda may cut your line but then this is very rare almost 90% of the time the the plug sticks to the lips of the cuda and the mono leader is comfortably safe from those teeth!

Then, if you must use wire, sice old habits die hard and there is also that question of doubt at the back of your mind, use a crimping tool to crimp the wire to the plug and swivel.

I agree about the flouro or mono for night fishing but 40 or 50lb is plenty strong enough, just remember to check it for frays after each fish.
Stick to wire in the daytime though because otherwise, you stand to loose a lot of lures to barracouda.
I'd definatly avoid the swivel and join the leader to the braided mainline with a double uni knot so that the swivel doesn't knock the liner out of your tip ring when you reel it in.
I've tried the rapala knot but I maintain that you can't beat a good strong clip so you can change lures easily and quickly. My current favorite is the breakaway fastlink clip bacause it's incredibly strong, it's compact, the lure sits centrally (and so tracks true) and it's designed in such a way that a fish cant release it by biting down on the clip.

I saw your snap of Burras at Harihareshwar. They look like Bass. I would like to know the local marathi name of these fish. Are they Dhomas?

Regards,

Santosh,

Thanks for your reply to my queri. I knew Jitada is called Baramundi, but somehow I did not recognise these fishesin the snap.

Would September be a good season for fishing at Harihareshwar?

Regards,

Arun

place called bhalgaon close to harihareshwar in the night at 2 o'clock. this is a creek and we have to climb on one of the centre pillars of the bridge. this has to be properly managed otherwise its very risky. u can climb the pillars and come back only at high tides. so one has to spend the entire night on the pillars. but the game over there is really amazing. u would listen to a lot of crackers bursting on the water surface. amazing feeding takes place.


I have spent the entire night under the brige at Bhalgaon around the pillar with Glen, had we got the tides in reverse, I would not be writing this one. The tide came in withing a foot of the pillar, we had prepared to tie out selves around and were trying to figure a way to climb up to the platform they have on the Pillars.
