It was just about to dawn and in a few minutes the day was to break. We were spinning a little far from each other. Not a movement of air, the sea was tranquil and there was silence all around. It was not even my 10th cast and the fish struck. It ran straight into the rocks. I had to hold the rod towards the sea and extend my arm to full length to keep the line and the fish away from the pier. The screech of the reel could be heard loud and clear but it could not stop the fish. The fish was moving side ways and the weight of the fish could be felt on the rod. Played for some time and landed it with the help of Prabha. The fish was hooked in between the snout and the dorsal fin. It weighed 9.2kgs.

with Prabha

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

Regards...Calvin

Good catch boss.......consist catches.

I would like to share few things about Calvin. People says luck favore for an angler who have consist catches rather i would like to say Calvin had learn the craft of fishing....day by day he's mastering his skills in the fishing sport... often i saw him he use to share the day of catch with the other anglers to master his skills though he got the price catch for the day.

thanks for sharing your knowledge with us

God bless you calvin ..

Vijay........

Awesome fish there.

How clear was the water and how has it been raining in Chennai?
Hoping to visit Chennai sometime during the beginning of September.

Cheers, Maruthu

Thanks Rajmallya,Maruthu and Abraganza

@lure_fisherman- The water was dark green in colour. There has been scanty rains for the past few days. September should be good.

thanks saikibryan,kingfish and sham pulli...

@ kingfish- sir, i bought storm pre rigged lurres of different sizes and colours which have a single hook on the top...tried them and got a stike once, but did not hook the fish...it was a fast strike and then gone...there were 2 visibile bite marks on the rubber and the local fisherman who was with me assumes it was a MJ...hoping to land some fish soon...will update you as soon as something happens...
