Hi guys,

I had a pretty interesting weekend.
I went to Maktoum bridge (Dubai) & fished there for some time. I did manage to catch about a dozen sherri (Spangled empror) & was actually pretty dissappointed as I kept on losing a lot of bait. (Shrimp) This was rather strange as I couldnt even feel the fish nibble. I am still trying to figure out what was eating my bait. It could probably be crabs.

While fishing the water was suddenly disturbed with schools of little fish jumping out of the water. I realised that there must be some fish preying on them. I tried my rapala without any success. I tried different lures, floating & sinking type. Silver, blue, orange, yellow, green colours, bud didnt get anything. At one point of time the fish came right upto the water edge & with the sunlight hitting from overhead I could see a shoal of @ 20 - 25 GT feeding on smalled fish. This was a real teasing time for me & I felt helpless.

Any ideas guys ? tips? colours / types of rapalas ?


Anyway that was my story for Friday.

in the night I checked with some guys from a dubai fishing forum to find out their plans for Saturday. I was told that they plan on taking a trip for barracuda, not far from where I live. @ 10 - 15 mins drive. We dicided to meet at 5am since sunrise was at 5:48 and we expected them to hit around sinrise (which I heard was the best time for them)

We kept spinning till we got bored & decided to move to another location for Mangrove Jacks & hamor. I started packing up to move at @ 6:15 when one of the guys decided to spin for one last time. he instantly landed one, although ont big. But this was a good enough sign that they had now arrived. Knowing that barracuda feed in a particular area for @ 40 - 45 mins we then started landing them one by one. In that short span of time, the 3 of us landed 23 of them, though some not big.

We lost 3 rapalas, lost around 10 of them that slipped between our legs while unhooking (we were standing on the rocks), but had a great time.
This was the first time in my life that i have ever caught barracuda & the fight was an absolute thrill. I should be going there more often now, but doubt that I will keep the catch. I dont want to empty the ocen of the thrill that I get this sport. I did keep the 6 Cudas that I caught as I'll be going for a barbecue this weekend :o)

here are a few pics of the ones we caught.

My first :o)




The catch: 23 lined up, lost @ 10 by careless handling & 5 broken lines.



The one which I'm holding is the one to my extreme right hand side in the pic (in my lot of fish) I am sitting on the extreme left of the trio.



I dont really know what the weight of the fish was, but we were struggling to carry them all back to the car.

The Gts are found only around Musundum area where the water is deep and the currents are furious.


Tight lines

Hi Jeen,

if someone else told me that they saw GT's at Maktoum Bridge ,I wouldn't have believed them. I was trying to figure out what was feeding cos it caused a lot of commotion. It was only when they came to the wateredge where I was standing (if u look at my previous pics with the spangled emperor & Silver Grunt) next to the railing, that I saw that they were GT's. the sun was almost overhead, hitting into the water & even the bottom of the creek was visible. It was really unusual to see the way they would prey. A shoal of @ 20 - 25 of them would make a dart for the smaller fish & then just stop still for some moments & make another dash around.

I have already gone through the Oceanactive website in the past, so I definately know what a GT is :D

Thanks for the info.....now I need some luck

Hi keyur,

I am really excited about GT under the bridge. Me and my friends have been hunting for GT around the UAE for more than 10 yers now and came across them around the nortern tip only a year ago. We have various theories about their movement in the Gulf. This is very refreshing News and throws quite a few of our equations overboard.


Thanks, Good luck and tight lines .


Jeen
