Hi Freddie,
glad you had a wonderful time. Was it with Danny? I looked through the photos over and over again, guess what, I could not see Uncle Wayne's name. Did he not catch any fish?. See you Feb. or early March. Keep it up. Henry.

Cheers,

Aha! Lost some weight. Keyur Get in line mate. Sucking up will not get you a trip. And anyway I asked first.

By the way Fred, Not only are you looking much slimmer and trimmer but you are also looking younger and more with it. Must tell you the few women in my office who saw your picture asked... begged me for your name and info. Shall I give it to them? :D :D :D

Hey Guys .. thanks for all the replies

My replies to the comments are below

Crak - Grouper taste great if eaten Fresh of the boat - Ice them and then they dont taste so good - Also upto 20 lbs make good eating - after that there is tooo much fat in the flesh

Santosh - matey will check the dates and send you a PM - also can you please PM me Ali / Yaj and your cell numbers as I seem to have misplaced the same in some data upload to me PDA

Jeen -- you missed a grat rocking trip -- couple of the large snappers showed me your visiting card asking if you were around :lol: :lol: :lol: but seriously I have never had such action in a 6 hour session . I did some night fishing for barramudi but since it was over cast and a half moon there was not much light and hence i guess no luck with them and the barracudas also who come around the same time.

Mken - PHG in Durg .. anytime -- just remember there are no toitles there so youre safe :lol: :lol: :lol:

Tatha - mostly on large storms - red whites / blue makerels / Green yellow and Halco Sorcerer - Green Fluoro

Henry - Yup but dan wasnt there for this trip . See ya in Feb / March 2008

Lure Fisherman - No surf fishing there mate but spinning from the boat in plenty and from the rocky outcrops that line the whole shoreline with deep drop offs .. Lots of it

Keyur - Yup me man lost some weight -- off the booze / ciggis and all the red meat -- well not all of it -- just nibble at some with two legs :lol: :lol: :lol: . and exercising and playing some tennis in the evening

Mken - thanx -- feel better - more younger -- and with it -- regards the women - please go ahead -- just make sure they are not toitles mate :lol: :lol: :lol:

Brilliant !! Great photographs !! But shouldn't you have gone easier on the number of keepers. Here in the U.K. fish populations have dropped drastically, reducing the frequecy of catches. things are much better in India and they need to be kept that way. mature breeding fish need to be released. give it a thought my friend.

P.S - that Grouper is beautiful !
