hi rai
fishing for mullets is not easy and even not tough
you need micro hooks i mean smallest hook you can get
and 1 or 2lb mono .10mm
mullets takes 99% in worms
bite of mullet almost undetectable so only very thin line to detect bite well
only in many practise you can master it
if mullet start biting you get plenty in lines

Finding threadfins only 50mtrs away, must say you are really lucky ! Whenever I hit those waters, these guys tease me from far at the horizon. Anyway for you, try to cast the halco twisty jigs past the spot where they are feeding i.e. the jigs should ideally land a few mtrs ahead of the area where the mullets are flying. As soon as the jig hits the water, start reeling in, such that the jig skims on top of the water creating a good trail as it comes in; normally these feeing threadfins then hit these jigs. Having said that, I have caught them while doing the normal shore jigging method - where you let the jig sink after it hits the water and retrieve it keeping it under the water itself, but this works mostly when the feeding/action is minimal; you know that these guys are there, but they don't come up.

If you notice occasional feeding on the surface, I suggest you try the "surface jigging" method described above only at those feeing frenzies, i.e. cast the lure only at the right moment you see the feeding. If you observe no feeding at all, try the "underwater jigging" ! Instead of the halco jigs, you can try other jigs, stick baits etc because you never know what might work at different times.

For the techniques described above, actually your gear ratio is good. A gear ratio in simple terms mean how many times the spool rotates when you finish a single crank of the reel handle or just how fast you can crank the line back onto the spool Eg, 5.2:1 means for every full crank of the reel handle, the spool rotates 5.2 times reeling the line in. Faster ratios are normally found on smaller size reels like 5 or below, slower ratios on larger reels and as a general thumb of rule, slower ratios are good for spinning using lures etc and faster ratios for jigging, trolling and similar techniques. Faster/smaller gives more speed where as slower/larger gives more power per crank.

To place the jig/lure at the desired distance at the desired spot is a key factor, to achieve it, use a very balanced system, i.e. match the lure weight with what is specified on the rod you are using. A 9-10ft med action rod, 20-30lb braid with 1mtr leader, 2-3 oz jig/lure would be a good beginner setup I reckon. Hit the beach and practice the casting as much as you can to fine tune the distance/placement.

Good luck !

I have seen the bruiser combo and it is not so bad and quite adequate for the fishing here. I believe it is just that one needs to practice how effectively they can use the gear they have rather going after fancy ones.

I am no expert in salmon or for that matter angling itself, I explained whatever little I know and how I have tried. As you say, your fellow anglers suggested the way to cast, it is better to follow them. I have not been to Munambam in a while, so if is the place you are trying, there are scores of salmon anglers waiting on the rocks for the fish to break the waters ! I would say, observe how they are casting, retrieving, the jig/lure they are using etc and just follow them. Also there are other species in the water which you should try, which are more tricky and fun.

Congratulations on the first.

Over here in Kochi, I have had most success with redhead coloured lures. It could rather be from any brand, what I think most affects is the action, retrieval speed, dive depth or basically altogether how you present the lure.

The jigs I meant are actually metal spoons itself, silver colored works the best for threadfins as far as I have experienced.

Redhead is a must have, apart from which you may get these colors - firetiger, hot tiger or yellow red combo, green and gold combo, chrome/gold with black combo. Also look for 3D color patterns which are equally good. Of the brands halcos work out cheaper and durable, pioneer, bomber, rapala, yozuri, shimano etc are few other very good brands.

Especially groupers, barramundis go for very slow and sedate retrieves, rest of the species I think medium speed retrieve are ok.
