Hi,

I had a friend of mine drop in from India for a Visit. Took him out to fish . Told him all about not touching the drag once the fish takes the lure, to be patient and not be in a hurry to see the fish on the surface ,and to stick to working the lure on the suface .
In spite of all that coaching dint expect to see this!

Cheers,

Jeen

Hi,

Hamour,

The set up you have can handle that fish or bigger. The tackle my friend used was a penn travel rod rated 20lb coupled with an abu garcia spinning reel loaded with 30lb braid. The lure used was a Maria floating plug that dives 3 feet which we modified by braking off the lip and filing it off to ensure that the lure stays at the surface.
Since the king fish feeds on the sardines ,which are plentiful, the only way you can entice them to strike is by working the plug on the surface ripping it across with a fast retrieve. I assume that since the fish cant taste or fully see the lure clearly the bites we get are reaction bites.
These plugs are about 4" long and weight any where bwtween 16 to 30 gms and ofcourse we remove the original trebles and change to stronger ones.
Well then the same plug wouldnt have worked a month ago. "Match the hatch" is the key. The sardines form the main prey of the king fish. These fish follow the sardines into our waters starting early Nov . At this time these bait fish are hardly an inch long and the bait size goes up and eventually by April/Maythey are 3 to 4 inch long. So we start the season with 2" metals or spoons and work our way up till we end up with the minnow plugs like now.
Well this applies to our kind of fishing which is purely spinning/sight casting to fish we can see feeding on the surface, or fish we assume that are just under the surface, rounding up the bait fish, whose location is given away by the hovering birds that continously keep scanning the waters surface. You eventually become one with the bird and can soon begin to interpret every move of the birds.

Alternatievly you can troll a lipped minow or spoon with a down rigger and hook fish after fish trolling , but then thats not my cup of tea where the boat catches the fish.

Keyur An Ken,

You are on the list alright.

cheers,

Jeen

jeen ....thanks for the kindly and detailed explanation , and encouragement on the rod reel combo...

i too believe the one should catch the quarry based on water craft.... and not having the boat catch them... i admire the insightful explanation on matching the lure with the growing sardine.. shows that u really read the and track what goes on in the water .. would love to have the time and resources to be able to do the same someday.. will wish, hope and act on it...

cheers and all the best .. :wink:

I do not have words to speak on that catch.
Good for the person that caught the fish. BTW, what is the temperature like?

Cheers,
Maruthu
