Well I am certain most of you will find the title a bit funny looking at the fish LOL. Well it took more than a year to land a decent size fish. Since the open season starting October 10 This is one fish that I could actually report on :)

It was a lovely morning with what seemed to be like a full tide. Me and Keyur like every Friday did not expect much but as Keyur mentioned someone had lost a big size Cobia a week before thought would try the location and if luck land a few puffers or Croackers ;)

Three lines cast with ballyhoo on one and the other 2 on sardine. it wasn't long when i was about to get my other rod ready the rod took a good bend and that sight triggered the adrenaline in me. Ran to the ROD pulled it back off the rod holder and STRIKE! Felt like some small fish which took a few runs and went sluggish and it appeared like a croacker to me and amidst this commotion Keyur's rod took a bend and he thought it was me reeling in his line but i was certain about it. He reeled in a trevally of decent size without much resistance. As for me I thought I was reeling in a dead meat and was more interested in what keyur had landed and when I was almost done reeling in did not notice a good size spangled emperor on the other end. It was one big of a kind i have landed. Later part of the day one Filipino landed a big diamond trevally and Keyur landed 2 big catfishes which were safety released back. unfortunately one one pic available as we did not bother to click pics of the Trevally.

Guess where our next weekend trip will be @???

Thank you very much indeed for the lovely comments everyone.

@ Ace_Doc: I guess you have had your share in the beginning of the year :). Ours is a closing ceremony.

@ Lionheart: Yes for sure. I did bang myself on the rocks this time and lost another big one in the bargain.

This friday was as good as the last one. Sadly, Keyur could not accompany me and I could not accompany him the next day due to prior commitments. Landed a beautiful Sha'ari on the first cast in barely 5 minutes of the bait landing on water. I decided to call it an Anniver-Sha'ari as it was our wedding anniversary. Dont ask me for the number of years completed as I will have to hunt for my marriage certificate LOL. Had another take in next 15 mins odd but I had turned by back on the rod and was chatting with another angler who had lost a 30 kg cobia a couple weeks prior. I struggled to reach the rod and landed on the rocks on my shoulder in the cold. Missed that one and one after that as well. Here's the so called Anniver-sha'ari.

Cheers and tight lines..

Not too sure about the spangled emperor but the trevally was caught on rubber shad and I landed one on a sabiki rig.

I mostly go to Hamriya (towards UAQ). Pretty productive these days.

I have never fished in the creek. The water is really bad and I don't have a license yet :oops: . I have some local holidays planned by end of the month and will get one before 2011. Do you fish in Garhoud? B Bay looks like a good option.

I will PM you my number. If you need the directions to Hamriya, let me know.
