Thats a GREAT BARRACUDA. Did he land it from shore??? I am surprised. They tend to infest the deeper waters and the not so big cuda's are found close to the shores. More surprised because it took a popper.

Congrats and thanks for sharing.

Now that's a real Cuda.

Congrats, Nice catch. What wire did you use? 7 strand or single strand ?

I had hooked a big cuda once but it cut my Wire clean.

When we used to fish real 25 NM + off the Konkan, if our lure ever got stuck around the boat (rudder/propeller), the guys who used to dive in to retrieve it used to cover the soles of their feet with black grease, because the white of the feet under water could and has provoked strikes from these guys.

thanks dr aamir. No not really.. These shores normally patrolled by GT's Cudas and Baramundi..
Where do you go Dr? normally.. I often visit Bhavnagar and Mahuva on business. Next we can catch up somewhere?

Congratulations nice fish. How far did you have to throw her the line? Is the water there tends to be flat or deep?
Such catches are also possible in Agonda Beach?

we need to cast around 100 to 150 and start spinning.. you have to have a reef near by or a back water connecting the sea.. you cant find these monsters in normal surf

Thank you. Hopefully I can catch one. What is the best time? And how heavy is a bull gt popper so you can throw out 100 meters?

you should use minimum 60lbs braid with secured 60-100lbs flourocarbon leader with 80-120 grms poppers or stick baits and a decent spinning reel would do the trick. peak tide would help

And before the popper steel leader or only flourocarbon? Why did you take a flourocarbon leader? Because the rock and reef?
Sorry for the many questions, but I would like to catch big fish catch in India, this is my dream.

Poppers float.. so you dont need steel wire leaders.. Fluro would do.. moreover fluro is as equal as steel wires.. steel wires are used mainly during trolling as there is not much stress for the wire to bend and break..

I know the floating popper;-). I thought only of the steel because the teeth of the barracuda. So you only take a short piece flouro before the popper?

hirnke, we have handled 12-15kg cudas with fluro and they withstand those bites. we lost few of them only becos they fight differently than other species.. cudas some times run forward making lose lines and then wriggle out taking you by surprise.
