Hi!
This is Abishai Fernandez, from Mumbai. Sea lover, and a passionate angler. Introduced to fishing by my mum and dad. A media professional : Am a media mixed breed a freelance features writer at RSJ, RAVE, Hindustan Times, Goa Times, a TV producer. (ok thats as far as what i do for a living, the below is what i love doing most)

Started with the regular line fishing, then upgraded to rod and reels!

First rod was a Mitchell Telescopic coupled with an Okuma FINA FS815

Progressed to a Shakespeare Alpha Series Rod and Reel.

Also in my collection is a Berkley Cherrywood Glass (light spinning rod)

Now, I use the Forcemaster inner guide boat rod 10 foot with a CW capability of 250 Gms with an Alivio 10000XSA

Also use a Backbone Elite 15 KG trolling rod, coupled with an amazing low cost Chinese trolling reel! (upgrading to a TLD II now).

Lines I use:
Daiwa: .30/300 meters mono
Rapala Titanium: .229/300 meters braid.
PowerPro: 50lbs/ 300yards


Fish Caught: Empror snappers, Red Snappers, Salmon, Groupers, Barramundis.
Fish I want to catch: Mahseer, Trout,

Hi Abishaifer,

Nice to have one more angler from Mumbai. As you have not fished for 10 long years, I would love to invite you for a day of fishing in Powai lake. Lets break your fast.. :lol:

Welcome aboard Mate.

Regards,

Ali. :D
