This beauty is a Threadfin caught at Munambam breakwater today. Weight 5.55 Kg and bait used was a Rapala Magnum - Purple Sardine.

It was a 10 minute fight to get the fish close and then the drama ensued. As I was lifting it out of the water the line snapped and the fish went into the rocks... Luckily i was able to go down and get it back!!!!

Fortune favours the bold. But i have learnt never to go fishing without a garf!!!!
