Hi Guys,

With the weather blowing here in the UAE since the last one month, we had our eyes open for a break in the weather . When it happened, we found ourselves in Musandum, My son and me, with Nick’s Ocean active.
We fished two days . The fishing was good considering the low water temp .We caught 14 GTs on poppers and Sticks, a couple on jigs along with sheri ( snapper ) and cudas. Couple of pull offs on big fish and one bust off on a Mother of all gts!
I must say that Nicks charter is first class with probably the best crew I've fished with. Glanville and Richards Thank you guys.



























cheers,

Jeen

Jeen,

That is awesome. Can you please tell what jigs do GTs hit? I am almost a total noob to the world of jigging but bucktail jigs bought me success than anything else and hence my confidence on jigs is increasing.

Any input on jigging in GT fishing will help me a lot. Do they also eat plastic bodied jigs and/or bucktail jigs with/without trailers. BTW, I will be hunting for GTs coming Sunday :D

Thanks,
Maruthu

Hi guys,

V.Singh,Riaz,:- The equipment used are specialised for Popper fishing,

Rods - Carpenter

Reels- ShimanoStella 10,000 & Daiwa Saltiga 6500 Dog fight. for popping

and Daiwa 4500 Saltiga and Shimano stella for jigging.

Lures were poppers and Stickbaits made by japanese and Australian lure companies like carpenter, fisherman and Blue water.

My son was popping and I fished only stick baits asi t was easier to work stick baits and l wanted to fine tune my technique.

Muruthu;- The jigs we used were mostly japanese long jigs 200 to 300 gms dependening on the current and depth.

You could have success with buck tails too. You could use the same technique you use for striper bass.

Hi Jeen,

Having exensively used both the Stella and the Saltiga, which in your openion is a better reel and why?

Hi Bobby,

Thats a tough one ... Well, stella has a very smooth drag and fishes straight out of the box heavy drag up to 15 Kg and continues yielding that sort of drag and smoothness. The Saltiga drag needs to be upgraded with carbonex washers to match that sort sustained heavy drag performance.
However the Saltiga is a robust and long lasting reel in terms of strength and cranking power.

In the popping world you always find afficianados for both. Iam a Shimano man myself, though, I find myself attracted to Accurates lately.

Hi Jeen,

Another brilliant post. Some nice GT there as well. I see you've been twitching stickbaits this time :lol: .
The Cubera poppers in the pic work really well here and are quite popular. They move a lot of water and they 'call' GTs from near and far.

For GT we always found success by matching the poppers to the colour of the fusiliers in the water

This is so true. It's the same here, one has more success here when they match the poppers to the fusiliers. But then again white/red works just as well, which always makes me wonder what all the fuss about colours of poppers is about. :wink:

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.

Hi MM,

Yes the twisty is a strong connection.Especially since all the big guns are after "that" FISH armed with 170 lb braid and locked up drags! Eventually everybody graduates and gets to the point where they fish only for that 50Kg and above. Iam still at PE 8 and on 8kg drag ,tightening when required. However my son who got busted in Musundum is talking locked up drags and big numbers on the PE !. I guess once you get humiliated by a big GT then the next step is beefed up tackle.

I still love my PR knots and continue using them but do give it a good hard test after i tie them.

saw the new stella?

Yup Jeen,

Saw it about 10 days ago.... 600 to 700 grams if I remember right. About the weight of the Stella 8000. Nice looking reel but the pictures weren't terribly clear. Hoping someone will carry one out this season so I'll get to try it. Just got my Stella 10000SW in December so it's too early to think of a new reel. You ever used the Accurate SR30? Now that's a reel..... no end to this maddness!!!

MM,
using the SP78H-SHP. Good rods. yes you said it there is no end to the tackle you want....
I used the SR 30 on Nicks boat. That is a solid reel. Iam still not convinced enough to place it above the Stellas. But then every time you see it you want one. We have become like women in a jewellery shop!
The new stella 10000 is like 1200 $ !!

Jeen
