Hi all fellow anglers my name is Vinayak. I am form Panaji, Goa.

I was just browsing thru the net, to get information on angling and stumbled upon this site, seemed great and I joined up. I was awestruck looking at the pics posted by fellow anglers. I liked the pics posted by Keyur.

I wish to have good interaction with fellow anglers to help me improve my angling skills, since I am new to it and trying hard to catch some good fish.

I have been fishing for a year now, using a 70lbs test line, and a 7' spinning reel telescopic rod.

I use a size 2 hook and fish at the divar jetty in north goa
I only manage to catch cat fish weighing abt. 0.5 kg, where as the others manage to catch big fish namely tamaso (local name), i try hard but i think i have still not mastered the art of hooking, can u please help me.

Some times i get frustrated, when others manage to catch good fish, and i cannot.

I have asked my other angler collegues, but they say everything is fine, but yet i dont manage to catch fish as them.

Can u fellow anglers please tell me where i went wrong.

Bye all.... :-) :-)
Vinayak

I think what you're talking about is the Mangrove Jack or Tamoshi or Taam. Anyway, welcome to indianangler! I'm sure that 70lbs line and 7ft rod will be done away with pretty soon! Haha.

Aye up! (hello)

Back in the UK I used 18lb mono on my 12ft 4/6 oz beach rod.
I got snagged.
I couldn't break 18lb mono with the rod fully bent and locked!
It was like a giant elastic band.
I'm not a big or strong guy, 5'9'' 12 stone.But I'm no weakling either.
I had to point the rod down the line, hold the spool and walk backwards.
When the line snapped I was about 20feet from where I started walking.
It was like a pistol shot when the line finally broke.
And I fell on my backside, I felt very silly!

Good luck with it all my friend.

YB.

HI Vinayak,

welcome to the forum. I'm sure there is lots to learn here & you can be sure that almost everyone here who gives advice knows what they are talking about.

Like everyone else said, your gear is too heavy. Try using a max of 30lb line. The lighter the line, the more chances you have of landing some fish or the other. Besides, I'm sure that you will enjoy your fishing much more as you will be able to feel the bites.
If you cant catch anything or not getting any bites, try changing the leader set up.
Try enjoying your fishing, without concentrating too much on the big ones....when the time is right, you will surely land one. It would be more fun to land a big one with light tackle & that will come with experience.

Dont feel backword to aks any questions no matter how silly they sound. Everyone here is very very helpful & wont let you down. If you take some time off & read the previous posts over the past year, there is lots to be learnt.

TC & have fun reading the posts & experimenting with your tackle.

Welcome to the IA V.

Like everyone says, switch to lighter line... i guess you could land a hippo with 70 lb line!!! Its an overkill... but then again its best to check with the salties... up north, the only thing we use 70 lb line is to get the pestering goonch out of the water...

its a simple method... 1 lb bait fish + 70 lb line + tow truck= landed goonch
