t was my first trip to India during the rains. Myself and friends were lucky enough to catch a good range of fish from the beach and rocks along the Maharashtra coast both bait fishing and lure fishing. i look forward to fishing the monsoon again as the rough water definately brings various fish closer to the shore line. lure fishing may be limited but bait fishing can work most effectively if some time is put in using fresh bait.

Unfortunately the last fish of the trip isn't pictured. I went out with a lure and managed to hook a lovely dark red MJ of at least 4kg casting from the rocks into the estuary. After a hard fight and nearly getting cut on the rocks the hook popped just when i was reaching for the fish. I was heartbroken as it was such a beauty. luckily for me 5 or six casts later a lovely barramundi of 4 or 5kg nailed the lure. After a great fight with some huge jumps i was able to land this one much to my relief! with no torch i had to leave just then when baitfish started jumping all around me! double damn but i can't complain!

Great stuff guys. Really missing fishing at the moment. Hopefully next weekend I should be able to cast a line as the temp seems to be cooling down.

I should be down for 10 days during Christmas & NY. Rajat / Santo / Ali /fred.....some plans during Christmas week ?

Amazing.

Would spinning with plugs be a good on such rocks with a size 6000 spinning reel. Would a 8-9 feet spinning rod rated for about 1 oz lures be OK ?

If I had to pick only one spot in the West Coast would it be somewhere in Konkan?

Ashok, That set up would be will be ok... I tend to use a ten foot rod and an 8000 sized reel when throwing lures from the rocks. However I would suggest that if you plan on doing a lot of lure fishing from the rocks a heavier rod would be well worth investing in. That's not to say you won't land fish with the lighter rod; but the chance will sway much more in your favour if you have more powerful rod to quickly get the fish under control. The rod i use is designed to catch catfish and can happily throw four ounce lures, has a test curve of 4.5lb and is ideal for big barra and big Mangrove jacks that tend to make beeline for the nearest oyster encrusted rock.

All the best, Scott
