Yesterday evening I went for fishing at Kanyakumari. As usual fishes were jumping around as they were chased by the bigger ones. The action was happening veye near to were we where standing and we were simply watching the action. Though we used to see the same action every time, yesterday was the first time I clearly saw a monster GT chasing a group of around 15 small orange colored fishes and thrashing one among the group and eating it. We all witnessed it very clearly as the water was like crystal clear.

Once the excitement of watching a fabulous action came to normal, I started casting and I got a violent strike after a couple of casts. The fish managed to run into the rocks and around the jetty as I was not i a correct position because of local fisherman who were also competing to catch one. This time I was surprised to see local fisherman hand-lining with lures. Definitely they seeing me catching fish after fish when they were waiting with the baited hand-line has impacted them.

So after a careful fight I landed this.



I wanted to catch something other than a GT (really), but GT always wins when it comes to lure chasing. I have a few days of leave left so let us see if I can something else, but Thane Storm has brought havoc to my dreams as it is raining heavily now.

Regards,
H.Venkatesan

Venkatesan,

Nice fish and a very nice picture. Congrats!

Looks like some wet slippery rocks there. Did you get your korkers yet?

As far as catching other fish, get there before sun up and stay there after sun down. Drop some jigs with soft body to the bottom and see what's lurking down there. If there is some current, try swimming some paddle tail jigs across the current and close to the bottom. That place sure looks like home for some big barracudas. Try Yozuri Mag Minnows (green mackeral) and Rapala X Raps (silver side with blue back and spots on the side or rapala firetigers might be even better) at dusk and dawn for the cudas.

Thanks Samit and Santhosh. Thanks for the info on Bata Dolby Sandals. This time the rocks have dried up and not slippery at all.

Last two day were those rare days when you return empty handed from that spot. Last day the sea was silent with no action.

@ Binu: I used to pop with Roosta poppers and once I hooked into a monster GT, but unfortunately because of braid I lost it.

@Kingfish: 2 months back I did my first boat trip in sea. We went towards a known reef, but after 10kms the waves were very violent (never seen waves that high, much higher than the 25ft fiber boat ) becasue of low pressure belt and we had to return back. This time when I went the boat guys have gone to some other place for seasonal fishing. So I am waiting for my next trip, but it seems they will come back only after April.

Thanks Mario and Omesh.

Thanks Robert. It is always a thrilling experience to catch GT standing at the edge of slippery rocks and against the smashing waves. I love every bit of it! You are always welcome to our place.

Best wishes for your next catch on your coast, am from Kerala Kochi and trying my luck there but no success with a big one not GT but here on this coast lots of people catching Threadfins (Indian Salmon) weighted 3 kg to 8 kg on November 2011 last week there was a great fishing success for many guys .... i missed those days without aware of it...

Keep posting.... Thanks
