Conforming to tradition we had our usual month's fishing holiday in December , bidding fare well to the year 2010 and welcoming 2011.
The year 2010 was bad for business with the global crisis et all. But for us anglers, in our case any way . No global crisis can steal this one thing we have .. the joy of being out there be it the wilderness, the road, or out there on the blue,being one with nature and soaking in all that is unrelated to the rat race.
This year was a mix of a road trip that took us to the west coast of Karnataka, and the hills of kerala,and a flight to the laksadweep islands in search of a trophy GT .
We will be posting our trip reports in the appropriate sections .
Every time you catch a fish we silently admire the colors and textures of the fish we catch and sometimes we wonder weather the colours and hues we see are real or is it something only you see.We are trying here to share the visual treat with our friends on the forum.

A masheer from kerala

Image
Maral from the Periyar, Kerala. Caught on a frog lure.

Image
Mangrove Jack caught on a diving lure from the periyar.
These guys are extremely aggressive in the river. We have caught some on surface lures and have also had some mjs hit frogs while casting for maral(No hook ups).

Image
Face...

Image
Brilliant red on the tail

Image
Image
Front end of a periyar maral

Image
Spots on a bluefin trevally. A GT popping bycatch (lakshadweep).

Image
Eye of a black jack trevally caught while we were jigging . These guys inhabit the same reef zones as dogtooth tuna and when we catch black jacks,dogtooths are always close. (lakshadweep).

Image
Scales on a Red Snapper. Another GT popping bycatch (lakshadweep).


Image
Fin on the same fish..

Image
All teeth intact !

Image
Napoleon Wrasse caught jigging. (lakshadweep). These fish make for very interesting pictures as they have incredible patterns all over….
Image
Napolean’s Eye.
Image
Scales on the same fish.
Image
The tail.


Image
GT!
The reason we went to Lakshadweep, this year’s GT fishing didn’t have the numbers we normally see, however we had some very interesting encounters.
Image
Always looking for fusiliers.

Image
Another shot of the periyar maral. All Maral from the Periyar have some special colours….

Image
Image
Scales on Masheer.

Image
Teeth on a green job fish. This fish was caught when we were popping for GT, and was surely the biggest job fish we have ever seen.

Image
Another maze on the Napoleon’s skin.


Most of these pictures were taken by jeenu and the theme for this thread is inspired by Catch Magazine.


Regards,

Jeen

I love this take on the fish. God is in the details they say and they are right. Just looking at these fish from this angle shows us so much that we normally miss.

Thanks Jeen

Congrats Jeen, once again to you & the boys !!!

Brilliant pictures. They are truly inspiring for all of us to stop & admire nature.

Have you been out after getting back? I hear there have been quite a few kings & cobia taken in AUH in the past 2 weeks.

Best regards,
Keyur
