Hi Guys

Since some time now , me and my boys were considering a week’s popping and jigging trip to the Lakshadweep islands off the west coast of India. Finally the plans were drawn and we reached the islands after a 45 minutes flight from cochin air port ( south India )followed by a 2 hour boat ride to our base.
We had absolutely no idea about the kind of fishing we would have. The local boat which was available for popping was a rickety 20 footer with a 1964 25 hp Cummins diesel engine which had to be hand cranked to start. The jigging boat we managed to get was a 14 feet local canoe with a 9.9 hp out board that ran on kerosene.
We were well aware of the lack of local knowledge on popping and jigging and that precisely was the reason we decided to go .. to check out on the GTs!
Made some enquiries with sketches of GT on the sand and also description of “Tunas with teeth” however we did not get any encouraging info and decided to face the truth on the waters.
The next day morning saw us at sun rise heading on the popping boat towards the surf we could see on the horizon. The boat took close to an hour to reach the outer reef and en route we explained to the captain our modus operandi .At the first stop three poppers flew over the side My younger son hooked a Job fish, Rahul hooked a Blue fin trev and I got a swirl at my stick bait …most defniely GT! I reeled in and cast again two pops and WhaM!! ..there are GTS HERE.
Did three hours of popping in the morning and Three hours jigging in the afternoon. Results were awesome considering the boats we fished from, all locations and spots picked by us on gut feeling and Jigging from a canoe with no fish finder, using only the braids colour marks to judge depth.
Couple of unstoppables on 15 kg drags. One fish pulled the canoe all the way to the reef and cut us off when we locked the drag.
Highlights include fighting a gt in a storm with lightning cracks next to your ear , Rahuls big wrasse and JeenRaj popping a gt from the beach



















more to come!!!

Hi Jeen,

You and your baoys always make me go mad about fishing.

Sometimes im jealous on your boy and his friends.

My papa is a professional fisherman but he hates my fishing hobby.

Rahul you so lucky man.

Superb Pictures Jeen. Did you get those wrasse on the Jig? The first one looks like a Napoleon Wrasse, if so it is on the endangered species list and is one for the records.
