Hi All,

Went to Vijaydurg ( my fav place ) on the event of republic day with friends and family. My friends brother had come down on a vacation from the US. Hence we decided to go to Durg. He got 3 strikes. I helped him in landing the fish coz he had never fished before. He enjoyed the sport a lot. Earlier when he used to come from US his luggage comprised of new clothes, perfumes and etc. He promised me next time when he comes his luggage will include fishing rods, lures and all other accesories. He is hooked to angling now. We caught 5 groupers, 1 mangrove jack and 5 barramundis. After a long time I enjoyed the barra fight. We released all the groupers and the jack. I lost a big barra cause it was hooked on the edge of its mouth and ultimately the hooks came out. We didnt take any pictures of the groupers and the jack. I am sharing some of the pictures below. All the groupers were in the range of 3 to 5 pounds and the jack weighed 4 pounds. It was a very good fishing trip.

In the boat.

The Barras.

These weighed in the range of 10 pounds to 12 pounds.

One is 18 pounds and the other is 14 pounds

Same two barras with friends.

This giant grouper weighing almost 40 pounds was caught in one of the nets by a local. Sad story.

Congrats Abhi, your pics brought lot of good memories.

I am still to get my barra of 2010. Fished all along the estuary from the mouth till the bridge (you know where). Saw two big ones (30 LB +), but they refused to take anything.

On the last night while fishing for MJ's with my light tackle (10 LB), I hooked into something big (Patil was with me), but within seconds of a fast run I lost it.

Santosh
