Hi Guys,

Here's a picture of a Mangrove Jack caught on my last fishing trip in India.

Just before I took this one I lost an even larger fish who cut my 80lb leader over some rocks. It was another MJ, after I lost that fish I must have cast around with another Red-White lure for about halfhour - 45 minutes to no avail. As soon as I switched lures to this blue-mauve lure I was hit on my first cast.

Note how he has taken the lure from behind

Hi Alex,

The rod is a custom build G-Loomis Spinning Rod.

The reel, is a Japanese Daiwa Firearms 4000, funny thing was that we were fishing in another spot the previous evening and I was trolling with a 30lb trolling reel.

I had set up the same rig as in the photo to spin which I did not do, while packing up late that evening, I had taken off the reel off the rod and kept it at the back on the car and my mate swung his hand and hit the reel by mistake, it landed hard on the ground straight on the bail-arm. Which bent slightly. Other than that no damage.

So I had damaged the reel even before using it. I managed straightnening it out later that evening and I worked just fine on the fish!

Hi LF,

It was a bit of a scrap, I had lost another one just before it managed to cut my 80ln mono trace on the rocks.

The fight was not very long considering I was using 20lb fireline, the worring thing was getting cut of as I was fishing from rocks and the terrain was rocky both large and small rocks all round.

MJ's are like streetfighters, they hit the lure real hard and run for the rocks the moment they realize they are at a disadvantage. But unlike fish like Rock Cod that "stay" down a hole they keep moving about so you always have a chance, but you need to get the timing right.

The lure was 5 inches in length.

Regards,

Bobby

Bobby,

I saw a guy in a Jetty who took a smaller one may be around 18 inches with a dead shrimp. It was in maroon colour, I thought it was a red snapper before I visited indian angler. I had been fishing with poppers and heavy tins while the bigger ones were not around and while others were catching small barramundis (with live shrimp) and MJs, ignoring smaller fish which are of sure fun.

I should be going with smaller fish catching plugs, that was the reason I was selling that big Gibbs lure.

Thanks,
LF
