More pix from my wonderful trip to Goa. Trolling in the mouthes of Nerul and Mandavi and around, 15-16 january 2008 (pix are random chronology).

Start point. Near Nerul bridge


Image

Image

My young ‘Sancho-Pansa’ :lol: : russian boy Max, son of my friends. He's very enthusiastic 'bout fishing: he can stand up at 4:30 a.m. and still waitin’ for me (total silence, without any sounds!) near the guesthouse's door till RIGHT time - 5:25 a.m. - Max, why so early?! Taxi will come only 5:30! (taxi from Anjuna to Calangute) - Hmmm... I can't sleep, - he said, - because..... What, if my alarm will be broken… AND YOU'LL GO WITHOUT ME! :D :D :D

Image


Yeaah, Max have proud!

Image

Unf***inbelieveble sunrise!!! (Trust me, guys, in REAL – it’s more impressive!)

Image

Maestro =Dean van Straaten=, and Tony – englishmans, owners of the boat. They are great! About Dean, I know him 2 years. Funny story: 2006 December I’ve searchin’ a charter boat – to do trolling. Nobody locals helps me, except my indian friend Anthony, he work in ‘Sunset’ guesthouse in Anjuna (about Anthony – another story, he’s sick ‘bout fishing!). O’kay, ALL THE TACKLES I have with: rods, reels, lines, leaders, vobblers, etc… I think, I was first crazy Russian, who BRING IT ALL WITH :lol: … Once, I was in Mapusa, in ‘White Surf Tackles’ shop, and I saw a poster, just simple ink-jet-printed poster on the wall of this shop. =Trolling in Goa=! And I asked for the contacts – I became it! Just standing in this shop I’ve called to Dean – in 2 days I've expiried my first trolling in Goa. And I’m very glad to meet Dean! He’s very open, many emotions, many skills, many experience…. :D (Btw: he was Chief of Fire Service in London :wink:

Image

Tony. I can speak with Tony about Dostoevsky, Hamingway and Chekhov - …. and this moment will be a bite!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: Guys, it’s a good receipt (® + ©: just speak ‘bout FINE ARTS and HIGH LITERATURE = results are guaranteed!!! :D

Image

OK, about results in my last 2 days in Goa.

Bream, about 4 kg

Image

Image

Dream-bream and grouper. Just grouper (5 kg)

Image

Image

Snappers

Image

Image

Image

Results may vary. Kindergarden snapper, the same 3 goes back in water.

Image

Ooops, go home, amigo!

Image

Last session of LAST day :cry:

Image

It’s, it’s aaaa… no words! Just sunset…

Image

(……CRAZY day, my 1,5 last day in Goa: starting 5:30 a.m. Anjuna – Calangute - Cocobay – trolling – 1:30 p.m. back to Anjuna = Fleamarket (last chance to buy gifts & souvenirs) – 3:30 p.m. quick back to Cocobay – trolling…trolling... Till dawn.... After that masala + vodka (good mix!) :D in Calangute – 9:00 p.m. back to Anjuna, last evening party with my new friends…. Till…. ‘last guest’, at sunrise :lol: . 9:00 a.m. alarm: OMG!!! Maybe, I’ll change the ticket for one more week?! 2:30 p.m – Dabolim…. Delhi….. Moscow)

Last session was resultative too. 2 good snappers and another 1 grouper in last evening session = good bye, India!

Image

Image

Scale :D My size is 45.

Image

..to be continued with more pix :lol: Next: night casting and crab-hunting, sea-eagles and sashimi, lures Top-5 shots (they works!) and Shiva-moon… I like India, I love Goa!

Moscow descent-2008. My friends & me.

Nice write up Alexey, I am glad you caught a 4kg Bream because someone on the forum mention the bream’s don’t go as big as that however I have landed a same size bream off the Chapora Jetty. They do get big over here. Please PM if Dean is operating till March.

Yes Fred certainly no Bream, it is a Maori Cod Epinephelus undulatostriatus I had posted a picture of one taken at Vengurla on my last trip there.

Hi Perkeo,

Nice report. I enjoyed reading it. The next time I'm in Goa I'll definitely carry a couple of light trolling rods with me. Did you guys do any casting/spinning? Did you pass a lot of structure like rocks and reef while you were out and lastly did you see any schools of bait/birds?

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.
