Hello fellow Anglers
This is OceanBreeze with my first post on the forums
Fabulous forum by the way - I had the pleasure of browsing around and just finished seeing the excellent catch by "Lionheart" and Sayed Bhai - I confess I know neither, but WOHOOO !!!! Fabulous fish and fabulous location !

I was an avid angler in my college days , used to fish all over the place but mainly catch smallies . Then my father's friend who had a sail boat used to take me out to the Mumbai harbour and we (well mainly him) used to land Khajura and Rawas regularly.

After a break of 19 years, I am back to fishing - not much luck so far, just finding my feet again.
Hope to be able to post some decent pics of fish soon.

Thanks to you all for your warm welcomes.
Lion - I would feel a bit of a git , riding out to Murud and asking the locals
"aarey Voh Sayed Bhai Jo bada Bada machi pakadtahai - kahaan milega ??"
:D
But let me honestly admit that the thought did cross my mind :-) .... So if u have co ordinates for him, I just might one of these days , give in and drive down to Murud Janjira - have been as far as Kashid and pulled some decent groupers . But the small ones .

I had no idea one could still land the big
Boys off the rocks like you all seem to be doing . Thought overfishing by trawlers and pollution had scared them all away - so good to know they still exist.

The otherday I was near a spot close to Alibag and saw
"rawaslike" Behavior . So had to try :-)

No luck . They hit a few times but I think
My reflexes are rusty. Could not hook them . Also I think my technique needs improvement - was using spinners and
Always confused whether to weigh them
Down or let them be. I suspect also that I reel em in a tad too fast , worried they may snag .

Any pointers guys ?
Cheers
