This is a great experience for your sons.Congratulations!! What a fantastic day for you all.
Oh,how we wish we had those waters around our coast!

Syd

Hi Sydney,

The rods are 2 piece carpenters paired with shimano stella / Saltiga Dog fight reels.The line is PE 6 (braid rated 65 lbs). Lures are poppers Fisher man .
The Gt lasted about 10 minutes and the king about 5 minutes. Popping is generally done on heavy drag up to 8 kgs to prevent GT cut offs from the reefs. Hence the fights are short and fierce.

Jeen.

Excellent GT!

Even one pound members of the trevally family put on hell of a fight. Fighting a GT of that size would probably be like fighting a 100 pound mahseer.

Hi Bobby,

Yes mate those are nesting ospreys. THe Musundum Peninsula is a seperate enviornment on its own. The bird life though few, are quite unique to that place. Since the musundum hills are totally isolated from the main land except by boat I am almost sure there may be some yet to be identified species. If not new species at least existing species modified to suit the terrain!. I have seen some quails there that soar and fly right up the cliff faces like swallows or swifts!!

Hi Jeen,

I just had a look at the picture of Rahul and his GT.Very Nice fish, must have given him a good fight. What I noticed was that he was fishing his popper with an assist hook..... looks that way in the picture I think?

If it is a assist hook....... I just wanted to know what you're hook up rate was? Did you notice a fall in the number of fish successfully hooked,or has it not made any difference?

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.

Hi MM,

Yes we are now more comfortable with assist. The trebles we are using are all Owner ST 66 size 5/O. I personally feel the hookups with assist are more positive . Also handling of fish while de hooking for release and quick photo etc is easier.

I also feel that the GTs have better leverage to twist the hook out with the treble. The assist on the other hand is so much more flexible and keeps the fish on no matter how much the fish turn and struggle.

Another factor is that st66 is sometimes so heavy that I found the action of the poppers and stick baits sometimes effected by it . We are now miss and mactching/experimenting with one assist on the tail and a treble in the centre or both assists on each lure and casting from a beach near home to fine tune the best combination.

Got a trip to Maldives lined up in a couple of weeks and would have more oppurtunities to field test.

Jeen

Hi MM,

I personally do not feel comfortable with Assist and have never used them to make a fair coment, however some of my friends who use asstists say that the Strike v/s Landed fish ratio had improved.

Jeen do you get that indication as well?

Bobby
