After a couple of months I managed to get a weeks leave and prepared in full hope of doing fishing for the entire week. But my hopes were dented when I reached Kanyakumari with high fever and the fever rose when I went to the beach and saw only sand waves till a few hundred meters. Even the river is diverted this time to construct a new bridge in place of the old bridge which was lifted and thrown away by tsunami. I was determined against all odds but put off by high fever and rains for the next couple of days. This is the first time I saw waves breaking every where in the sea till the eye can see towards the horizon, some thing strange.


After 2 days the water was far better with little suspended sands, still worse compared to normal. After a few initial cast I caught a small GT around 1Kg. I was accompanied my friend Ajith who lost his first fish as the fish dragged the line around the rock.

Next day we went to a new place, a very long jetty (should be around 2 kilometers long) and everyone tired their best only to get snagged in some rock. I withdrawn from fishing as every one bugged me to tie knots for them. Leason leant - It is better to teach atleast a couple of knots to the new guys before going to a interesting spot.

The next day me and my brother went to our favorite spot. This time I tried a Rapala lure, giving my trusted laserpro to my brother. This is the first time I tried any other brand than Halco, and I should say I am very much impressed by Rapala. The lure is an X-rap Magnum and it dives much deeper than Halco LaserPro in comparision. I a couple of cast I got the familiar pull and after a brief fight I landed a nice GT. My brother too had his luck and he landed a GT, first fish on a lure for him.

Here are the two..



Regards,
H.Venkatesan.

Last weekend I was again at my favorite spot with a determination to land something other than a GT. But again I felt the familiar pull on the very first cast and after a few runs I landed a beautiful GT. Again on the third cast I got a hit and in no time we landed another GT. Seeing me landing GT one after another my brother wanted to try the same lure (Rapala x-rap magnum) instead of the laserpro that he was trying for quite some time with no stikes. On the very first cast he hooked into a monster GT and I let him to experiene the thrill. Being hooked into a monster for the first time he was quite excited and was in no mood to listen to my words. Finally the monster ran into the rocks and combined with my brothers less experience it was able to snap the line. Oops.. we lost a big GT and the Rapala. I then tried with the tilsan bara and a small GT took it. For its size it gave a very good fight. Again I tried with another rapala and again got a strike within a few cast and this time to another good GT. The GT completely swallowed the Lure and we were unable to remove the lure there itself and so we returend home. A few fisherman saw us taking the fish out of the water and what we thought happended for the next few days. There were nets every where around the jetty and literally no fishes were found inside of the nets. We ruturned empty handed for the sencond day, but on the third day after a heavy amount of casting we got a small GT.

I have to wait to catch something other than a GT for a couple of weeks. After 2 weeks I will be going again, wish me good luck!



Regards,
H.Venkatesan

Excellent fishing Venkatesan.

Please tell me if the GTs are edible and if so, how are they prepared?

Here, no one ever thinks of eating GTs ( except perhaps the aborigines)
and these are always returned to the water.

hi venkat.. real sad to hear the above.. its the case most places.. when locals see anglers pull out fish after fish .. they begin netting heavily... just another reason why we should practice catch and release in a discreet manner...and if you take a couple.. then do that also very discreetly.. just my opinion.. i hope it serves you.. regards...
