After a month I am back at my favorite spot. The water level was very very low, the river was disconnected, the water was sandy even the subsurface lures were hitting the floor and no signs of baits. The chance of getting a fish there was nill, but wait, this spot has never disappointed me and my hopes were high. Me and my cousin were there and I tried casting for some and we learnt there were no fishes at the moment and so I stopped casting and we were waiting for the right time to come. An hour later I continued and on my fourth cast I hooked into a fish. Initially there was only very mild pull for some time and I thought it was a smallet GT and I can winch it.. But a moment later it started its run and it was unstoppable. This is one fish I was unable to control and it went into the rocks and the line got hold on a rock. Time to do rock hopping!! Since the waves were low I was able to move through those greenish mossy rocks and was able to free the line. Then again the fight started and I had to run along the jetty to get down to the beach and finally I landed this GT from the beach. This is one of the fight which I will remember for ever.



After landing the fish, I asked my cousin to pack up and move on, but my cousin insisted to fish for a little more time. Though I was reluctant it was a very good decision by my cousin as I got hooked again immediately. As soon as I got hooked I know this is not a GT and the arial jump immediately confirmed it. Man what a feeling it was, I got a barramundi, a fish other than a GT on lure after nearely 3 years, finally I won against the GTs.. It was a very brief fight and we landed it very quickly.

Venkat, this time it has been a double delight. A 10 kg GT and a 6 kg barramundi on the same day is phenomenal. Wishing you many many tight lines.

Congrats and a very nice report!

Looking forward eagerly to hit that spot again in November :-)

In the mean while let's go to Chennai and put some Cudas on the sand.
But again, with your luck you will be catching the same 'ol GTs in Chennai too :lol:
