Me , my cousin Vincent and a few friends went to munambam [ 30 kms frrom cochin ] to try our luck there.We could see decent threadfin activity far away and occassional activity .After a lot of fruitless casts i did a long lazy cast wit no hope of any strike.. but all off a sudden the reel started screaming n i knew i got a strike.. landing her [ later found out as she had eggs ] was really tough due to the big rocks... as i struggled to bring her close , Vincent was all ready wit the gaff stick n he got dangerously below on the rocks to hook her in.. as she came close i got a glipse of her n i was shocked to see her size... she was huge.. i thought i would loose her.. but ultimately by reeling her in when the waves rose above the rocks enough for vincent to hook her wit the gaff... she was IN.....

what an experience.... MY FIRST BIG FISH... a dream come true..

Special thanks to my cousin Dr Vincent who guided me and helped me be gaffing her in...

These are the pics of the beauty i landed.. close to 5kg ..

You guys really teasing us....what can I say, guess my next trip will be toCochin for a few days fishing. Interesting point you made about the eggs. This means they come in to spawn in Cochin in December.

How ripe was she?

What is temperature like there?

Are you all expecting the rains soon?

my first threadfin caught from the same place in march this year was full of eggs too. so i don't know about their spawning time or whether they spawn through out the season ie from september to may when they are seen in these parts.
