Hi there,

Its great to be part of this forum. I truly believe i can learn a lot from you folks.

I'm from Pune, but living in Europe (Netherlands, Germany, Belgium) for close to 10 years.

I recently started fishing the rivers and lakes in southern Belgium. I'd like to take my angling skills to new levels, here and in Pune.

I'm visiting Pune in October and would like to meet up with like minded people !

Hush Hush about the home spot mate, heard about the Ravas too :wink:, Appreciate you releasing all the Jacks, Barras and Rawas mate, please keep it up. Once again thanks for the releases. [smilie=hellyeah.gif] youre a star mate. Lot's of other places there including one where you get the occasional pompano and shark with fresh bait :twisted:

Hey, just had this at the back of my head all the time, whenever i go to the home spot every 2nd trip i lose atleast 1 lure should i go back there during an extremely low tide and try and get the lures back as our friend Glen always gets worked up when he gets to know that a lure was left behind as he follows the US Army principle" Leave no man behind" sorry "Leave no lure Behind" ur advice please..

I hate loosing lures myself but, my philosophy is if you want to take a lot of fish be prepared to loose lures, or be prepared to cast in places where you have a fair chance of loosing your lures. I do not loose many lures there. My advice is to use the rod to drag or guide you’re lure through and over shallow rocks where you know the lure will knock, rather than using the reel to wind, I try to “feel” my way through, if I feel a snag I slack my line, wait and then guide the lure forward of course this means you need floaters or suspend lures not sinkers.

Well at our place i use only floaters and I use deep divers for the gaps where the main sea water enters inside, i use the same technique of giving slack when i feel a bump on the rock but most of the time i like to keep the lure action on even when im real close to the rocks as the Gobras are sitting there only with their mouths wide open, thats the reason why i take a risk but i try my best for atleast 5-10 mins and use all the know techniques to remove the snagged lure till i give up and give the final pull where either the line breaks or my lure comes off I fish there with a 8 lbs mono line so most of the time the line breaks and the lure is lost. I just bought this Bill Dance lure retriever during my last trip to the US but it works best with heavier lines and when ur at a good height above the lure.
