Caught 8 of These. :!: :!: :!: :!: :!:

Bait fishing was done by Lion, Damian & Lloyd. Two Groupers lost one by Lloyd and one by Lion. Both were close but not close enough to gaff and they got lucky.


And one on lure By me :wink:

Hello Mario,

What rod/reel combination is that (in main picture) ? Seems different from
your beach outfit of Ugly Stik and Penn reel that you had originally.

Secondly, when you are rock fishing, is there any danger of large waves
in that locality to watch out for?

Waiting for your new pictures.

Regards,
Kingfish

Hi Kingfish the man in the picture is Lion heart. And yes i'm still using the Penn and matched it with a Abu Gracia 9ft .Ugly stick is a bit heavy.

And the danger of a large wave to sweep one if his feet is still there to some extent .

And Kingfish the guy in the second picture with the barra is me(Mario)

@lion pls upload the photo for me .

Hello Mario,

Sorry about the confusion in the photograph.

It may be advisable to wear a PFD (personal
flotation device) when fishing in such locales.
We lose several anglers in Australia each year from the rocks.

That is a lovely barra - wish you many more!

Regards,
Kingfish

Hi Kingfish,

The Wave power in Australia is a lot more that what it is around the Konkan/Bombay area, I have fished around Sydney and that is the first thing that caught me, while the wave power and currents are not what you would call weak in and around Bombay it is a lot stronger in Australia. I even got my thumb impaled on one of the trebles fishing around Bondi due to the waves there but that is another story :wink: .

We do get a few of those freak waves in India as well and they seem to be at their strongest end April onwards and through the monsoons.

Regards,

Bobby

Mario that’s definitely not a small Barra.

Superb catch and love the color of this fish.

Hello Bobby,

Thank you for clarifying the minimal danger of waves around the Bombay/Konkan areas.

I still feel that fishing from rocks (which may be very slippery) is one of the most dangerous pastimes.There can be a very strong undertow in the seas next to them.

I would hate it if one of our fellow anglers were to get into difficulties (or God forbid a more serious scenario) for not taking adequate precautions.

I have seen white water rafters in India wearing flotation vests that are tight around the body - these would not impede in casting and should be readily available locally?

I really think these should be worn by anglers when fishing from the rocks.

Do contact me if you are around Sydney next, we will have some good single malts and perhaps wet a line?

Regards,

Kingfish

Thanks Raj & MM.

Thanks Kingfish for your wishes and Concern and as Bobby said rightly "We do get a few of those freak waves in India as well and they seem to be at their strongest end April onwards and through the monsoons." Yet the sea is a bit rough and bit scary ,one has to have his eyes on the waves. The PFD is a nice idea.

What A Catch Mario :!: :!: thats a very sexy tailed barra :wink:

Did you really catch it on lure ??? :twisted: :twisted: Cause I think you just dived in the water, gave him a knockout punch and dragged him ashore and here is the broken jaw as evidence :twisted: :twisted:

Well noticed Lion

it was not my punch that broke the jaw but my blade . Had to do that, two hooks from the single treble were deeply hoked in the jaw .
I tried to remove them with my pliers but didnt work. [smilie=fixtit.gif] :roll: :idea: :evil: [smilie=headfuck.gif]

I agree with both of you
@lion the grouper lost was much bigger than the barra.
BUT as Keyur said a fish lost is a fish Not caught LOL :wink: :wink:
But from the bottom of my heart realy wished that you and Umpier had not lost those biggies.

Great, really some memorable catches. Hertiest congratulations.

Just one tip.. :D , Take the picture of the fish beside the water body itself (Though take care that no landmarks are visible so as to protect your spot :lol: ). The photo of alive fish is more appriciable and beautiful.

Regards,

Ali. :D

PS. I know, i know, these catches are from the night but still.. :wink:

And yes, I am sure you will catch the big one very soon. Best of luck for that one.. [smilie=ebil-thumbup.gif]

Hi,

Ali is right. I wanted to say this before. THe fish pictures are much better when they are taken just after the catch as the colurs are much more appealing. Also proper holding of the fish for phototograpy, paying more attention to the fish than the angler adds to the picture quality.


Regards,

Jeen

I also agree to all this but i'm new to angleing and total ignorant to Photograpy. Pls share some light on proper holding of the fish. As of having them shot just after the catch in my case it could'nt be possible as i enjoy fishing alone and avoid carrying my camera in an effort to keep my tackle to as minimum as possible.

Guys a logistical question

When you catch the bigger chaps
and if you do not want to release it
then what is the most humane way of finishing the fellow off

I kind of have pangs of guilt seeing them gasp and flutter for so long - particularly if they are biggies

Let them flutter them around for long developes acid in their tissues which may to some extent destroy the flavour of the flesh but the best thing to do is bleed them and then gutt them.

Take an icepick and punch a hole behind the eye thats where the brain is , it will be dead instantly or you can cut the connecting point of the gills to bleed it quickly
the longer the fish struggles the more buildup of lactic acid happens which affects the flavour of the meat
hope that helps :P

Use of a short but stout baton is an established procedure since long specially if the fish is big, has a lure in its mouth and is dancing around your legs. :lol: :lol:

Ali bhai you are very right this is the technique used widely and the safest of all. To use an ice pick or to bleed one needs to learn the technique under supervision , i donot know about other fishes but in case off a barra even a dead one can give you nips and cuts.
