was in goa for 2 days and just got a day for fishing with my friend Keith, a long walk towards the spot at around 4pm as we reached a big splash of about 10ft of water drenched us , and at that moment i told my friend that its a blessing from god :lol: . We then started to get ready with our rods n reels my friend decided to use a green macrel of rapala , and i used a storm red headed , we both used 60lb sufix braided lines 150meters, with him using a pioneer pinnnacle || power graphite 9 feet, (medium heavy) , and me with abu garcia tournament series 9 feet rod-(heavy), as the time hit pass half an hour my friend got a bite and moved very slowly the drag was loose thats how we realized thats its something very big who is not aware of our drag which was loose for this big guy!(prediction of blessing was true :lol:) :shock: we were not really ready for this big fish to show up.. i reeled back my line and walked to my friend as he called out. we were not sure what was on the line , after about 20min i saw something dark brown at 60mt my guess was rite it was a huge Grouper would be around 35kgs :shock: :shock: as my friend was tired fighting it for half an hour he then handed the fight to me, it was giving us a very tough fight as we were worried about the rod ,and the line too , we had only 150mts which was a big problem now , we could see the line getting over with about 90% of drag tight, it just would not give up, there was no other way than to tighten the drag full and start reeling back , it was 45min already fighting . when i started to pull him " snap" the rod broke Damn (i dint have a choice )it was already 1hour passed with no line left with us to give him drag . as the rod broke i handed the rod to my friend and caught the line with my hands and then with no drag left in about 5 min the metal line at the other end snapped and there we were lost a fight against the toughest monster , with our sad faces, but at the end of the day we were happy that we got such a incredible fight to experience. here are some pictures of the damage the monster did.

You had almost won the fight coz you said that the grouper surfaced once. Surprisingly again it gave you a tough fight. Normally groupers dont come to the surface unless they are extremely tired or they have given up the fight. I have experienced this many times. But anyways you will never forget this fight in your life. Better luck next time.

Sounds like a great fight ...... thanks for sharing the pics and the trip report .... Sad u lost the fish but hope next time u land the monster .

Reading thru the trip report a few tackle related questions came up ...Thoughts on these points would be appreciated
1: Do u think if u had 250 mts of braid spooled on ur reel instead of 150mts .....
would it have been enuff 2 fight and land this monster ???? ( the point being .. Is top shotting with 150 mts of braid a better option or is spooling the reel all the way thru with braid a better option..... in case u land a big one )
2: Would a heavy mono of 20-30 lbs with a heavier shock lead be a better option when fishing rocky places ... ????? as compared to loading the reel with braid which dosent mix with rocky ground so well.
