Hi Guys,
Felt the Saltwater scene needed a short in the arm.
Here is a picture of King fish I caught off the beach near Home ( abu Dhabi ) Last year.

Bait used was Bally Hoo( Half Beak) which we catch using light tackle and small piece of mackerel.

Hi Jeen,

Was this fish taken from Shore? Or did you troll?

Hi Pals,

The fish is caught on an incoming tide from the shore as the Kings ( narrorw barred Spaninsh Mackerel) come in from the sea to these mangrove flats to feed on bait fish mainly Half Beaks, Gar, Squid & Thread fin Mojara ( a silver fish ! )
Since the water is very shallow ranging between 3to 6 meteres at the most., the kings feel comfortable to come in from the sea only if the incoming Tide starts early in the morning and peaking at about 9 Am ( Sun Light Factor)
Every year the season starts from late OCt to Early April.But since the timing of the tide is important we get about 10 trips in a year for this specific type of fishing. THe other weekends with wrong tide timings are spent on the boat fishing offshore .
To that extent the catches are regular and we catch about 5 to six fish every season. Ofcourse from the boat you can fish till your arms ache,
However the KIng fish caught off theMangroive flats are always big never less than 10 Kg . The one on the Phootograph weihed 17 KG. Iam not too sure but I do have a feeling that these maure fish are coming into the Mangroves to spawn?

Hi Jeen,

Nice king fish and valuable advice. I spend my Christmas vacation, Dec to Jan, every year in Dubai/Sharjah where my three children and their spouses work. Do a spot of angling from Ajman harbour arm and deep sea trolling for sails but have drawn a blank past three years. Various reasons for absence of sails given by various quarters.

About two years ago a friend landed a king as big as your fish in Abu Dabi. Have been wanting to try our luck there.

Can we meet up?
