guys what are the likely species i can expect to target from a jetty and near docking areas in the gopalpur port ( bay of bengal) ? i have seen locals hand lining with what seemed like 100 lb mono using tiger prawns for something called "bhetki". i on the other hand will be running 19 lb mono with a 30 lb fluro leader and using lures.
i need basic info on the species i can expect to find in the surf and pier area's. i also have a large lagoon in which i can try my dubious skill. but i need to know what i can expect to run into.
these are what i expect.
1) cudas
2) mjs
3) dog fish
4 ) ....

If the locals are catching Betki (Baramundi) the obviously you can expect -

1- Barra
2- MJ
3-finger mark
4-Catfish
5-May be a Ray
6-Reef Cod (Grouper)

If Barra is feeding there, it is a good spot so keep your options open.
:lol:

Regards,

Ali..

just one question though, what did u mean by keep options open ali bhai?
i take it that there is a good chance of being wrangled by a bigger "thing".

You can expect these species. I have taken the pics early in the morning when the fishermen came with their bounty.

Well from the pictures the ones of interest would be Spanish Mackerel, Queenfish, Giant trevally, Queenfish and Sailfish. However looks like all these were taken slightly offshore.

I think Ali was good with his suggestions.

u are right. these guys (locals) fish around .5 to 1 km offshore and do bring back these beauties on handlines . the last time i had gone to the port i evinced much interest as the loco trying to fish with lure and a piss ant 15 lb line.
however they are really in the loop as far as knowing where to fish and for what goes. am headed to the port 2morrow to see if i cant get a bite or two.here is the selection of lures i have
1) swim shads
2) rapala x-rap
3) rapala floating mag
4) daiwa chugger minnow
5) yo zuri crystal minnow
6) small poppers
7) spoons
what do u think should be the weap-- err lure of choice?

The queens with strike absolutely anything that moves and wiggles, they have even hit poppers. Kings could hit the RAPALA XRAP (try red head or the glassy ghost) yozuri try the golden bronze minnow for kings and barracudas. Trevally poppers but depends on the location. I have caught trevally on a Sabiki Rig :) that 2 twice and second time I lost it :(

Hope that helps :)

Yes Ravi, that's a sail, Our salt water Toms have teeth in their beak and the lower and upper parts of the beak are of the same lenght and our gars do not grow to that size, besides it is the lower jaw that has extended into the beak, not the upper.

The body shape is also very different.
