I m member of this forum from last 6 months, this forum helped me a lot in understanding basic angling and various aspects of angling gears, techniques and got chance make few angler friends too.
The fishing reports and photos posted by so many anglers on the forum inspired me a lot.
Found out lots of information about angling over the internet, downloaded videos from you tube.
Finally 2 weeks back I purchased some angling gears.
Shakespeare Ugly Stick Big Water Rod (10 Feet)
Penn 650SSM Spinning Reel
Berkley Big Game Mono Line - 0.45mm – 20LB - Green (BGM20 -22) (300 Meters)
2 Steel wire leaders (2 feet and 1.5 feet)
Lures = Rapala Skitter Pop, Halco Roosta Popper, RAPALA Slashbait SXR14
Last week on Friday and Saturday night went out for fishing ( Near Marve- Malad) with fellow angler and good friend Sandip Ghosh, could not able to catch fish, lost Roosta Popper while casting but enjoy casting and beautiful view.
Specially Saturday night ( since it was near full moon), never ever experience such terrific surrounding (sound of waves, the reflection of almost full moon is sea water, the wind noise and breeze, movement of clouds ), it was just amazing!!
On Saturday lot of other anglers was very actively casting in same location but unfortunately no one was able to catch any fish.
Learn about spinning and other basic things in angling, all together it was wonderful experience (Many thanks to Sandip)
I m mainly interested in salt water angling and going to target Barramundi’s, MJ’s, Snappers, Ravas and King fish, etc.
What additional lines (Mono / Braid) , other necessary gears and Lures should invest in, which will help me to have a decent setup to target whose variety of fishes.
As I am new to this sport, looking forward to kind suggestions from senior anglers and angling guru’s about the same.
Thanks and regards,
