Last weekend I went to kanyakumari in the quest for the monster GT that had earlier almost spooled out my line and had its luck just before landing because of the simple fact I was using braid in the rocky area.

Sunday moring I was at my favorite spot a little later than I wanted and started spinning. After a few initial casts I got a strike and landed a small GT around 2 Kg. After a little while sun came out hard and I was not prepared for that so i had to leave. Again in the evening I went there along with my brother and cousins. My brother this time wanted to try spinning with lures and he did that for more than an hour with out any success. I was just watching and waiting for the right time to come. Sun went near to the horizon and I started spinning and on the third cast the reel sang and quickly landed a small GT. After that there was no action for quite some time and I switched the lure to Tilsan Big bara from Laser Pro. Viola, in no time I quickly landed two mid sized GT. My Brother missed the party as his lure got snagged in some left over net.

Then this happened. I casted and retrived only a few inches of line the line got tight and it seemed to be a smaller GT. But after a few second I realized it is a monster on the other end. It was a real fight for the next 10 minutes. After that we saw a huge splash of water some 70 meter away and we saw the fish for the first time. The fish doesn't seem to give up and it is pulling more line than i reeled. Finally we landed the fish and every one was disappointed when I told, "we will release the fish". But unfortunately the fish got a secondary hook near the gills and the treble was completely embedded. Every one's face brightened when I told , we cannot release the fish. The first time I had seen a hook opening up.

Many GT's I had caught had a secondary hooking near the pectoral fin, because of their fighting nature, which makes it impossible to release. Any suggestion on this, I am thinking to remove the hook near the lure head as in my experience GT's always bites the tail end.

The catches are getting better and better on subsequent visits. Here are the picutes of the GT....





The Quest for the monster continues.....

Regards,
H.Venkatesan
