Hi Guys,

Here's a fish caught today morning on 8lb line and a small rubber squid. We were actually fishing for bait fish for Cobia when I hooked this one. Took some delicate handling to land it for a quick pic before the release.

Jeen,

Nice Cuda there. Unexpected catches are very exiting.
I need to get those lip grips. Good for you that you have some one that takes nice pictures of your catches.

Hi Guys,

Coming to think of it, in reality, landing a big fish on light tackle is a pretty easy job when you are fishing from a boat. I had a light drag on and while i stayed connected, my son chased the fish all over the place till it was done completely.
I have seen footage of Marlin above 500 Lb landed on 25Lb line. They just chase the fish in a high speed boat till the crew can reach the 400 lb leader which is 25 mtrs long! After that its plain hauling in hand line style!
Maruthu , it sure helps to have some one handle the camera. However when I fish with my sons we are continously blaming each other for not grabbing the camera to shoot "that" rod bend though its not easy to drop the rod and grab the camera when you are in a hot zone where one is already hooked to a fish.
Fred, these days its so difficult to make long term plans . There are always new issues popping up in the work place. I did make a trip to India though didnt have any time to fish.

Jeen

I think the main thing with playing large fish on very light line is the knots you tie. As the line tends to cut into itself. Most crucial times are on the strike and when the fish tries to rub the lure on the boat when comming in and doing the waltz around the boat.

When fishing light line I tie a Spider hitch or a Bimmini Twist and then a uni knot or something similar to the leader or Lure.

Hi,

Bobby you are right. The knot of the thin line to the swivel is so important .The shock of the strike is what breaks the line. I normally double the main line before I tie it to the swivel connected to the leader. When fishing heavy with braid I connect the braid to the mono with a PR or Mid Knot which I personally feel is the same knot and connect the swivel to the lure with a split ring toa void twist while spinning.
V. Singh , I was retrieving the lure when the fish hit. You know The lure size should always match the bait fish that the predators feed on. We normally graduate to bigger lures as the season progresses from an inch long sardine look alike to a five inch sardine look alike. You can hook a 30 kg cobia or an 8 inch yellow tail on the same lure as long as you try to match the bait fish the fish are feeding on.

Just to add to what Jeen has said, having almost done with wire traces, I do not use clips any more, especially so when fishing with small lures as a clip can really ruin the lures action.
