Greetings,

Arrived home in Chennai and have been fishing for the past week and nothing to show for it.

Had a decent evening today though :-)
Both the barracuda (15 pounds) and the threadfin (10 pounds) were caught using the same popper, that caught me a few GTs a few years ago

Cheers, Maruthu

Nice barracuda Maruthu, very good size..
Can't imagine the fight on that gear.
What were these feeding on? They both look skinny..

Cheers,
Binu

Hi Marathu,

That is not a Threadfin but a ladyfish, (what they call 10 pounders in the US). They are some of the most awsome light/ ultra light tackle fish you can catch, related to the Tarpon you must have found that they go airborne most of the time and are an absolute blast.

I used to target them here in Hong Kong on 4lb pound line and I had some of the most amazing fishing. But I had to break off about 2 feet the leading bit the line after every fish, they strike very hard so I had to modify my knots and used bimini twists or spiderhitch of the line would snap on the hit. I was fishing for small GT’s when I ran into these fellows and did not know what was breaking me on the hit at the knot, till I changed my knots to a bimini twist and landed the first one. Enjoy them while the run lasts.

They love topwater lures, poppers work best.

Bobby

"Binu,

I was told that there were a lot of baitfish named Pachakuthi (Tamil)."

It's a funny name for a bait fish.
Guys who know tamil will understand the pun in it!!!!!

After weeks of fishing, I finally saw a GT crashing a mullet within casting range from the beach :-)

Hoping to land one sometime soon
