Hi, BigFish

Welcome to the forum. Hope you have a great time here.

I'm sure your experience on a charter boat will be helpful for some of our members.

Regards
Bopanna

Hi Bigfish,

Good to have an angler from across the globe on this forum. It would be interesting to hear the kind of sea fishing you're doing. Is Ling Cod similar to Grouper? We've managed to catch quite a few off reefs while going after GT.

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.

Hi Mighty Marlin,

What we get are mostly Groupers or Rock Cods.

Ling Cods are similar fish but not the same, ling mostly hug the bottom as opposed to Rock Cods and Groupers what are mid to (more) bottom water fish.

Regards,

Bobby

Hi Bobby,

It's been a while. I was wondering if ling was found in really deep water? I've caught grouper on bait, plug and popper, which pretty much covers the whole spectum of water in terms of depth. Must have been fishing in around 25meters of water at the deepest.

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.

Hi MM,

Yes its been some time. I just got back from Dubai 2 days ago.

I have never caught Ling Cod, but read about them so the best person to advise you would be the author of this initial post.

Ling Cod are cold water fish so we will not get them in the tropics. Grouper on popper is very interesting. I have never caught a grouper but caught large rock cod on Mackrel and on minnow type lures.

I am sure you can land them Jigging but I do not do too much of jigging. Was just in a tackle shop, inclined to pickup some large jiggs but had gone to pick up some fluro green lures for Bream. So that is what i did and also got a pair of sun glasses.

Spreading my expences :lol: will pick up the Jigs next time I go there.

Hi Jim,

You are welcome to post pictures of fish and your jigs. We do not allow commercial advertisments yet so please do not list prices or addresses of commercial websites. You could send me your product sample and if it seems useful to our members I will post a review of it in our review section.

Cheers

Hi Jim! Owen here from Bangalore. Good to have you with us.
Living in Bangalore, we are nowhere near the sea, and work doesn't allow me too much time to make trips to the sea. So the nearest and best fishing location around is on the Kaveri river, famous for the "Masheer".
So much of what i write is about is related to experiences on the river, though some of the other members are all rounders. However i am sure everyone will enjoy hearing from you on saltwater angling.
Tight Lines
Owen

Hi Bigfish,
I have jigged while out sea fishing but not with the grubs you mentioned.This method proved very effective on grouper and coral trout, while we were out targetting dogtooth tuna. I've used the smaller version (squidgies) in mangroves and have caught snapper and small grouper on them. I've a whole new set of grubs/squdgies I want to try in freshwater for Mahseer.

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.
