hi guys, i just returned from a short trip to the gujrat coast and managed to catch my first ravas and grouper from there. the first day we drew a blank but the next day we went to a spot where the rocks jut out into the sea forming a finger. on the right side is the deep sea while on the left side is a cove where there is slack water. once the water starts returning on the ebb, the action begins... the ravas line up for an easy meal in the turbulent waters formed by the rocks. i cast my yo zuri crystal minnow as far as i could in the fast water and let the current take the lure through the turbulent waters into the slack water where the lure would be plastered followed by a fantastic run and a screaming reel. the ravas is really the cheetah of the sea and i have never experienced anything like this before..... not even in mahseer fishing in the fast waters of the himalayas.

i managed to hook five big ravas and lost them very near the shore because the lure came off . the mouth is very bony and offers very poor hookhold. my local friend who is a very experienced handliner told me that the treble hooks have to be twisted in a certain way for them to hold. i thought he was pulling a fast one on me and ignored his advise. after having lost five fish i let him have his way and landed the sixth one even after a lot of leaping.

the third day was spent trolling and anchoring on nearby islands where we caught a few groupers and snappers. here are a few pictures

TACKLE:

ROD - SHIMANO MH 9FT

REEL- SHIMANO BAITRUNNER 6000D

LINE- SPIDERWIRE 30LB BRAID

LURES- YO ZURI CRYSTAL MINNOW, LIL CLEO SPOON, HALCO SORCERERS AND ASSORTED RAPALAS

I'm glad I reserved this space to let you know I was the first to read the writeup and maybe the last now to view the pics.

Awesome doctor, my dream fish is what you got! absolutely awesome! Nice spread of species you've caught now from the freshest and saltiest waters in the world. Doctor! when are we going fishing again? I never thought your rod would be able to handle what it has but it has before however nice new shimano I guess its better for saltwater.

Regards,
Omesh

Superb Doc,

I am so sure you must have had a blast with ravas taking your lures. With regards to the hooks bent I have seen them on rapala xrap jointed slash bait. The belly hooks are slightly inwards as compared to the trebles on tail.

The murkier water looks like a perfect spot for species like ravas and barras.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Doc,

I was working on a ravas species document sometime year before last and I had compiled some serious data with illustrations from various sources that I wanted to post on IA but it got just too vast eventually. My laptop crashed and I lost almost everything on there. I had somewhere saved part of that doc that extended into several pages on a hard-drive, that got busted too, but I managed to salvage that info and save it to another drive somewhere. I need to locate what I had and will post some of the info here. I was doing this for personal satisfaction as I am fascinated by this fish and wanted to learn more. A kind of pursuit of knowledge.

All Ravas are Polynemids - Family Polynemidae.

Yours should be a Eleutheronema tetradactylum

I would not call yours a Juvi, how heavy was it? I have seen Ravas that size with roe in it but these were Eleutheronema rhadinum, an almost identical fish available in this part of the world. I understand you said the tetradactylus was absent, yours could be a young fish with thin threadfins, just guessing here.

There are 8 major Ravas species and several subspecies, I will need to locate my notes to go into the subspecies, but will only post if anyone is really interested, it is can be really painful:

Eleutheronema
Filimanus
Galeoides
Leptomelanosoma
Parapolynemus
Pentanemus
Polydactylus
Polynemus
