Hi folks,

Was attending a party recently on the west coast and fishing was definitely NOT on the charts but then :twisted: , carried some tackle with me and borrowed some from my friend sanju and there i was by the sea doing what i love to, even though it was not much, it sure was fun. The place is beautiful, relatively unknown and not so crowded, and clear beautiful waters.

Got my first rawas (threadfin salmon) on a storm deep thunder (black and silver) and a couple of good hookups but lost the fish.

Lost a couple of them out of which one was definitely a Grouper as it gave an aggressive short run and then holed up, guess it was a decent sized grouper. Didnt know how to handle the fish once it went into its lair. Seniors please throw some light on how to play and handle these kind of fish. The line was continuously strained for about 20-25 mins, guess the fish was big and somehow the hook came off, the bugger managed to stay there.

Another instance got the fish near the boat but it went under the boat and somehow again the hook came off and it managed to escape with a spalsh on the other side. Couldnt see what fish it was.

Does this happen usually or was I doing something wrong or maybe was plain unlucky. Kindly give your views and tips please.

Sorry for the quality of pics, taken from a cellphone .. sharing some still.

tight lines ... Cheers Samit !

congrats on your threadfin..

as for grouper.. theres nothing much one can do.. if he holes up..

1.one can try keeping the line taut and the letting it go slack for some time ..( to temps it to think the danger is passed and so that it moves... and then yank it all the way..

2. one can keep the line taut and play and send the grouper vibrations by constantly plucking at it like a bass guitar.. trhis irritates the fish and induces it to move ..

3. i have heard that in some places locals bundle up part chewed tobacco in a thin cloth and weigh it down with some weight and slide it down the taut line .. the tobbaco juices leach out and irritate the grouper to move...

4. i have also heard that some people use a heavy ring of wood having nails driven thru weighed down with lead which is then slid down the taut line and is constantly in the groupers face ..and again acts as an irritant.. forcing it to move..


i have tried the first two options ..with some success.. i have never tried the other two at the are not so convenient.

b t w.. if its a grouper .. and you know it.. dont try and play it .. its just the winching game.. but then it depends on the tackle your using at that moment..

Awesome fish Sam.

You are the second one to report a threadfin salmon in this year. They are a rare event these days.

With regards to the groupers, I second what "Hamour" has mentioned. If you hook in a grouper, you manage to land it than thats the right way to do it :)

Cheers - DeZZ

Very nice rawas there Samit... Congrates...
One more tip while trolling near the rocks; when u get the hit, ask the boat man to take boat away from the rocks, this way u go in deeper waters and fish has less places to cut you and because of the depth it gets exhausted in the process of running for the shelter..

Regards,

Dr. Prasad
