Syd.

Hi Sydney,

All our equipment was left behind at Maldives when we went there last month as the rod cases were not allowed onboard the seaplane when we were returning. AS of now I was told that my stuff has been couriered from there couple of daysa go.

What we we are using now are some chinese rods and reels.THe rods we bought a couple of weeks ago , 6.6' long and rated for 6 to 10lb line though we were using 12lb line. THr reels were dug up from old tackle boxes most of them with complaints like slipping drags, no anti reverse and bent bail arm. However the fish were landed without a problem accompanied by frequent use of choise four letter " words".

We were using mostly the same rubber shads pictures of which I had posted last weekend.

Hi Jeen

Fantastic fish. Can you tell me a couple of things. How much line do you let out after casting and do you put any weight on the line too.
At what depth can the fish be found usually. Are you casting and then reeling in constantly.Whats the methodology.
I am going to use casting rods in cochin so just want to increase my knowledge base.

Cheers

Hi Pish,

Spin fishing with artificial lures is mainly casting and reeling in continously. If the fish are feeding on the suface, you start retrieving as soon as the lure hits the water. If the fish are below, then you wait a couple of seconds for the lure to sink, ( I assume you are asking about the rubber shad) before you start retrieving. Also retrieving style depends on the fish you are targetting. In my case, we are tossing the lure to Queen fish and trevally that are feeding on the surface. For the queen we retrieve fast and pause a second, every 4 or 5 cranks of the reel handle. For the trevally, we let the lure sink a bit and then retrieve slower.
Actually when these fish are feeding on bait fish, there are different species engaged in the feeding frenzy. Bottom feeders like snappers and groupers will be directly below the bait ball( school of bait fish) at the bottom. So if you let your lure sink right down till it touches the sea bed and then twitch it eratically, and let it drop again, chances are you will hook one of these bottom dwellers.
But then again, since you cant see below the water line ,we mostly imagine various senarios and deduce theories based on experience, and keep trying different tactics.
On the subject of imparting action to artifical lure and retrieving styles, please check U tube where you will find lots to learn.

Hi Jeen,

This is off topic but would you know how much a new 4 HP outboard motor will cost in Dubai? This is for use on a four man inflatable dinghy.

Hi Bops,


There are agents here who will ship it from here. This part is easy. If you can handle the duty at your end then it should be no problem
