Here's a look at a Small True Grouper taken on lure by one of my mates spinning from shore on my last fishing trip in India.

It is a Boenacki Grouper (Cephalopholis boenack).

Sanjay it would do well in your tank considering they grow only upto 14" according to my research.

Fantastic looking fish.

Is that the tail end of a spoon or a fish like lure and what size are those hooks?

Hi Rustam,

Yes that is the tail end of the lure, the hooks were 4/0 trebles.

The lure if I remember correctly was a Rapala magnum about 7"

Regards,

Bobby

Thanks, Bobby.

Just out of interest, on an average what is the smallest size hook used for sea fishing?

I too had one on my last trip but he was much smaller . around 8 inches and he too whacked the shit out of a Tlisan Barra Lure ... I was spinning from the boat drifting with the tide .. Screwed up the lure as it was a wooden one .. but they look beautiful when they just come out .. Hope this one too is swimmng around flashing its colors Bob .. and like Bops says wheres the rest of the pics

Rustam,

It really depends on the fish you are targeting..mullets you go down as far as a No. 10

When we fish blue water we use the largest hooks we can find.

What ever you use your hooks have got to be very sharp.

Hook size does play an important part in Hook-up's I have found that using smaller hooks does not hold too well as it does not go around the lip or the jaw bone and so it does not hold too well.

For me the the hook size impacts the lure size more often. So I would use a large lure sometimes because I needed larger hooks.

Will post them slowly, no point in posting them all in one go. :lol: and besides there are not too many fish.

I can barely walk mate! I played a cricket tournament over the weekend and busted my knee..

On that day we caught this fish and a small Trevally, both are swimming free :)
