Thanks Bobby and Fred, will give Halco a try. I haven't heard of any catches of GT around the coasts of Chennai for quite some time. Is there any season for GT. I was told that it begins by the end of December and lasts for four to five months (for Surf Fishing). Does any one hane any input on this?

Thanks,
LF

The GT is a round the year fish but catches definately go up in the months from December to May

Just so that you know , Gts will always frequest rocky shorelines with deep drop offs .. You will infact see them cruising around the outcrops on the surface and thats the reason why using surface lures like poppers work well . Im not to sure about castring from a sandy beach and hooking GTs ... I have never had the good fortune of hooking / landing one . Its always been the deep channels of rocky outcrops

Halco roosta poppers are very good. Check out these pics of gt taken with the same in the andamans a few days ago,

Thanks guys,

Will give a try with the Halco poppers.
Bops, can you please tell how you were working the Creek Chub popper for the GT you caught from the surf in Madras. Was it a fast reel in with the rod tip kept low, or did you work with Pop...Pop...Pop....reel kind of retrieve? Also did you see the GTs breaking the surface before casting? Hope that was a lot of fight. Any input for hooking a GT will help me a lot, they are my primary target.

Thanks,
LF

Hi LF

It was close to five years ago so I don't remember exactly how it was done. I cast out to where I could see the baitfish jumping to escape the GT and brought in the lure at a steady retrieve. That was when I had a strike.

Thanks Bops,

I have been popping there for quite some time but not had any luck yet :cry: . Bops, you made it in one day.
By the way how would you compare its fighting capabilities.

Thanks,
LF

Hey LF

We were there for three days actually and I had the assistance of a local who knew the water. Have you gotten in touch with that friend of mine in Chennai?

Bops

Hey Fred,

Have the day off and just got a chance to have a quick peek at the forum. So it's GT you're asking about huh? My only advice to you is as long as it floats, is large and has a big cupped face it'll work. It's hard work using surface lures but the rewards are great and you'll need a very stiff rod to bring out the best in your surface lures.

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.
