Nice fish there. Starters for the oncomming season huh ... :wink:

If I remember correctly, were you asking about fly fishing? How is it going?
Fishing is kind of slow for me too. I am working on my driver's license and such :(

Fished all the way up to Goa over a 5 day period and the only bite I got was one from a leach when I got out to take a pee somewhere on the road on the way back to Bombay.

However I heard that a group of guys caought over 100 Mangrove Jacks in Malwan.

Hi all saltwater buddies. Have been mainly at home these past two weeks taking care of the kids as wife has started work. Its hot hot hot out here in Muscat,Oman. Cant wait for a month when the weather starts to cool down.

Jeen and his sons plan to do a costal trip in Oman. Looking forward to their visit.

Yes fly fishing equipment is a problem to put together. Have had to order quite some stuff online. Have an eight weight but want to switch down to a 5 or 6 wt for the smaller fish around muscat.

Vincent you should get your parcel in maximum two weeks. Some DVD/s as also some clousers tied by me. Waiting for someone going to cochin. Just may make a short trip and meet my sister too. She is in alleppey.

The big season starts end SEP down south of Oman where the huge bluefish bream and permit are there. This year hoping to get a permit on a crab fly. Last year a friend got almost 5 on a crab fly. They are quite huge out here. Some over 5 kilos and great fighting fish. Have seen bluefish over 7 kilos in the surf 100 feet from the shore. Practising casting a lot. Need to get a fly out all 90 feet. As yet can get it out upto 70 feet in ideal wind conditions.

Expecting a new fly rod and reel also also a new tying vice and some fly tying material mid SEP. A friend is going over for a wedding to the US and has promised to get this stuff. Cant wait.

Happy Fishing.

Carlton

I went to Atlantic City (Brigantine) last week end and caught the good old skunkaroo again ........ :(

After catching skunks for a while I decided to be there at night and with my fly rod, which not a good idea beeing a newbie with fly fishing ..... Took a bus from Philly that went to a casino in AC. My plan was to spend a while in the city and then hit the beach before dawn. I was given a coupon in the bus to play in the casino and the casino gave me $20.00 cash (for a $19.00 round trip bus ticket).

I had never been to a casino before, but deicided to spend their money there, but I enden up spending more than an hour in the queue and finally I needed an ID (which I did not carry) to activate some card which I did not know why/how is it used (to earn points or something, which I had no clue !!). So I quit from that place. Then I was sticking my face between some breasts in a Gentlemen's club for a while :evil: By then it was time to hit the beach ....

I fished from 04:30 AM in the morning until 10:30 AM (with little breaks in between, offcourse), without a single hit. I walked about 6 miles on the sand and even got slight sore in my thigh, because I was wearing a cotton pant and wading. I had my breakfast in a sports bar close to the beach, and they did not accept credit card, and their ATM did not work. I paid what I had and was short of $2. The lady said it was okay for me to not pay that money, but I felt bad about that and walked to the nearest ATM which was more than a mile away (with a sore thigh and burning sun at noon) and walked back to the bar and payed the balance. I shouldn't have droped the $ bills there :oops: .... Fished some sod banks for another couple hours after noon before leaving and caught nothing again.

I never saw anyone catch a thing other than what they called spots for bait(with worms). However, I saw a boat guy catch atleast a couple of fluke/flounder (not sure) with bait and filling his cooler. Also, I saw birds feeding on boiling bait on the surface. When I looked close, it was some 6" fish chasing small fish in 1 to 2 inches. So my fly didn't get a hit in the 6 inchers blitz LOL ....

In a short sentece - "I had an awfull trip"
Bluefish will be everywhere in a couple of weeks from now .....
Will hit the beach again by 30-Aug-2008 and planning to fish hard for the long weekend (Sep-01, Monday - Labour day)

Cheers,
Maruthu

Tight lines

Greetings,

I am hearing reports of bluefish moving in to the shore.
Once they invade the surf, they will be every where like in the video :-)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SiqZ2dA ... re=related

Fishing for bluefish should be good until December. By mid/late October the fall stripers should be making their way through Jersey shore. So I am expecting good fishing from next week until mid December. By January, I will be fishing for something else ...... :evil:

Cheers,
Maruthu

I hear reports that the blues have started to invade the surf in AC (as the spots are moving out) and some are catching bluefish on every cast. I can't wait to go there and catch them with my fly rod.

You run a travel agency correct? Unless you are looking at Hong Kong from the Phillipines it would be towards the north, it is in the east of you look from India :roll: :lol: :lol: unless it floated north a bit since checked the atlas last :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ravas were very common fish here Fred, the locals used to salt and dry them, now one of the hottest spot for those Threadies is under the Ching Ma bridge, you have to pass it when you come to Hong Kong it is the bridge that connects Hong Kong Island and Kowloon to the airport.

Barra are rare but not impossible...

Man, that bridge is huge.. how do you cast that far... guess you need a boat to get farther and under the structure.

Some time back I was pleasently surprised to see farmed ravas (from Taiwan) for sale in the local chinese fish market here (California).
The ravas was labelled as threadfin shad.
So the ravas must be native to Taiwan for sure.

Hence finding ravas in Honk Kong would not be surprising.

Unfortunately I have not seen them in the market afterwards.

You have to hire a boat and bottom fish for them. No one fishes with lures for them here.

And like Fred said, you can only "Dream" of casting for them from the bridge. Go to Google and search for "Ching Ma Bridge", even though the pictures do not do it justice you will get the idea. There are 2, 4 lane roads on top, with 2 - 2 lane roads under for emergencies used during storms/typhoons and also a 2 way railway line.

Hi Bobby,
I've been there and never did I see any one fishing from or around the bridge.Hence the query!.. frankly speaking.. looking at all the giant liners pass by the busy waterway, I never really expected any fish activity down there.

Cheers,
Madhur.

PS. As for the "Tsing Ma bridge", you said it rite.. the pictures do not do it justice

From what I heard when the Threadies are on the bite that are a lot of boats round and about all fishing with hooks, these guys are commercial fishermen. Actually the liners passing to and fro prevents any netting in that area.

Hey Bobby,
Just out of curiosity. You ever landed a Rawas/Barra in HK?How different are they from the ones we get locally?

Regards,
Madhur.

No mate, have not so far only caught Sea Bass, Seer, GT's, Lady Fish and Red Drum. In my experience the Lady Fish is the most exciting fish to catch from the above bunch, fight is very much like a ravas but their take is savage for their size.

My son has caught a very small Barra here, but that was in an artificial fishing pond. I have only just found a couple of spots that are accessable, so I may be going there this weekend.

There is no difference in Barra and Ravas that are caught here and the ones in India, they are the same. Hopefully I can share some pictures if I meet with any success.

Have eaten wild Ravas over here mate it is fantastic. I had it served as cold seamed fish with a salty white bean dip, "Chu Chow" Crusine. Realy fantastic mate. The fish is prepared where the Skin is like leather and you can only eat the flesh inside. Served whole deboned and opened up so that the skin is underneath.

Hi Madhur,

Ever in Hong Kong and I will take you for that meal and a few washdowns...

Few Ravas were caught in Bombay 2 weeks ago, sworn to secrecy and cannot reveal the exact location, but Mhad at this time on the year should be good.

Regards,

Bobby

Welcome to the club Madhur. The list of determined rawas anglers is quite long.. :lol: :lol:

BTW, lot of rawas are seen in the market. I always make a point to ask from where they are coming.

Thanks man... If ever, I'll let you know for sure :D ...

regarding the Madh ravas.... well thats our regular territory.. only seen some feeding happen back in march/april... but the damn activity was way.. way beyond my allready limited and poor casting range...

I have even charred my self in the sun at Bhati point without any luck...
The erangle rocks are also heavily netted these days so that also reduces the chances(lost lot of spoons there).... I think patwadi is the only possible place...

Lets see, I'll be scouting the Gorai,Uttan belt this time.Its close by so can be there virtually every day... there might be some good spots.

Cheers,
Madhur.

looks like this season rawas is the winner in terms of being favorite of them all.
I think I would rather stick to the Bara as yet . :twisted: :twisted:

In Days Gone By, we all wanted to catch Barra bcause the Ravas were more commonly caught, now it is the other way round.

After all these days, I caught a 10 inch bluefish last Saturday :(
I am heading to Marthas Vineyard by 1st October. It is a 3 day striper fishing trip on the island with some of my buddies.

Wish me goodluck guys :-)

Cheers,
Maruthu
