I was supposed to be there for the whole week, but my vacation got cancelled due to work :( However managed to just spend the weekend there....

Went to one of my favourite fishing stretch on the west coast. Now that it was off season for the tourists, my friend who runs a restaurant was free to tag along with me while I was fishing. Since I had a borrowed camera, I managed to take a few pics of the terrain and the fish. Will try to get more the next time I'm there smile.gif

There are some spots with deep water along the cliff, but I am not comfortable finding fish in deep water, as I prefer shallow water with rocks/cuts/rips/wash to find the fish smile.gif Hence stuck to shallow water (may be waist deep) with rocky reef on the bottom. Didn't carry much gear as I was taking an overnight bus to that place only for the weekend. So, I fished my Shakespeare BWCA/O 2201 70 Ugly Stik Tiger casting rod that I left in my friend's place. I carried a couple of reels with me, but just fished my Penn Squidder 140L. The reel is upgraded with Tiburon frame and a Penn power handle. I also have SS gear sleeve/Carbontex washers/SS flat lapped metal drag washers from smoothies that I am yet to install wink.gif I'm in love with this reel.... Smooth and free spools like feather and also looks awesome.... Was able to cast light plastic swimmers down to up to 1 oz without issues with this setup.

Conditions were not that good.... Windy with choppy water and big waves as the monsoon is approaching. However, I fished Saturday evening and Sunday evening and managed 2 Mangrove Jacks (One on each session).
First one was 4.7 pounds and the second one was 6.2 pounds. What a fight they gave.... took some drag with locked down drag from my Squidder icon24.gif

Can't wait to get back there for an entire week in May, though I am not having my hopes up due to approaching south west monsoon. Here are a few pics from my borrowed camera for some that might be interested. Took an 8 minute video of me just casting, with no fish frown.gif Will try to upload the video later, hoping to get people here to start fishing conventional gear even for casting light plastic lures as it is a lot fun.

Day one....



Day two....







Pic of the same fish with my friend.




This is not the lure I caught the fish with, but a productive lure. Tilsan Big Barra from Halco.
A deep diver with a missing lip, due to all the abuse from the rocky reefs where I was fishing :)

@lure-fisherman

Nice report and good pictures despite the adverse circumstances....good looking mangrove jacks as well.

Pity about the loss of the metal lip on the Tilsan Big Barra, which is a good lure.

May I suggest that you try the Halco Hamma, which has easily replaceable lips,which comes in handy if one breaks the lip inadvertently, plus it gives you the option of fishing different depths (+1meter and +3 meter if I recall correctly).

Beg to disagree with the level wind reels ... I prefer the other type .

Tight lines,
Kingfish

@Venkat

I wish you were there.
I Hope that you make it there for a couple of days in May :)

@Kingfish

Thanks for the tip! I'll try the Hamma lure when I get a chance.
I like the Tilsan Big Barra for it's tight wobble. Mine had a plastic lip though.

BTW, the reel I was using was a Non-level wind (open frame)
Most of my conventional reels do not have a level wind and I prefer to wind manually.

Hi Maruthu, Nice report and catch as usual. Congrats! My interest was piqued, when you mentioned deep water marks, as i am interested to fish such marks and have a couple of them in mind. I'd like to ask you, when you say deep marks , would you mean places that may be 30 to 40 feet deep straight from the rocks? if so .. then lets talk. i have been planning to fish such spots this coming year, and have a luring technique that not many may have tried or resorted to back on the west coast. I will send you an FB msg, and we can take it from there.. do let me know if that will do? Hope to meet up on FB. best regards!

Hi Maruthu, I will be down, God willing and all going well by end of oct beginning of nov this year. yup if you use the soft plastics, go for the jerk shad type ones in 7 inch size rather than paddle tails and considering this isaround the 30mtr mark as you've mentioned a 2 oz weighted jig head should do. as there would be decent current condsidering teh depth and the structure around, since its a land based mark... Hopefully i will try and join you .. i bet you may hit some big jacks , gts , groupers or blubber lips with this technique at such marks. cheers!
