Hi,

Can some one suggest proper tactics and tackle for Hound Fish. In UAE the waters where i am fishing is infested with these buggers.

Some are as long as 4 feet and thick as my arm. I am planning to try shiny silver spoons (Halco Twisty) and sardines under a float this coming Thursday.

The season here looks promising, Ballyhoo are here in abundance this year. The Kings should be reaching our shore by October in numbers (hopefully).

Any lure recommendation will be welcome.

I once landed them on a sabiki rig. used some shrimp and a champagne cork at the end. Landed the rig amidst this fish and then ran shit scarred. So when I retrieved the rig slowly bang they hit the sabiki. Often 2-3 at a time. Where about did you see them? Ajman opp kempinski :)

No Dezz

That place is infested by another species (Filipino Brigade). The ones there are small, caught many on shrimps last year.

These ones are big, huge in fact. They are hitting sardines under floats.

last year while retrieving my rig i got a hit from a big one, It was a good fight with many jumps and surface dance, i want to try lures on them.

Will let you know the results.

Tight Lines.

I have tried lures on then but they are very shy of hitting any lures. the ones I landed were barely a meter long. Try spinners or a kastmaster. Where are you heading next saturday?

Sorry no pics were taken, will click some next time i hook them.

Report:

We started casting around 6 in the morning, i was casting a Twisty and one of my friend a Rapala maxrap.

He got the first hit and immediately i also got a hit when my spoon was just 10-15 feet away from me. As there are rocks i slowed down my retrieve and this is when they hit.

I observed that after the initial cast the moment the spoon lands we should reel as fast as we can. The rod should be held high so that the spoon skims the surface. This gets their attention and they start to follow. Once you have their attention gradually show down the retrieve. They will hit after following good 20-30 feet.

The big ones above 2 Kg are good fun and jump quite a lot. you can also use cut sardines and mackerels under a float to target them if you dont fancy a spoon.


I am going to use a rope lure (without hooks) to target them next week. if you dont know what a rope lure is see this link you will get the idea.

I will make my rig within this week and also post pictures.

till then tight lines.
