Those are good looking mangrove jacks, with some spectacular scenery in the background.
Nice video of release .... hope some of the newer generation of anglers follow suit.
Glad you got into the action on the last day, the trip becomes memorable because of that and compels you to return.
Thank you Kingfish!
Yes, I can't wait to go there again
Nice MJ Maruthu.
What happened to you krokkers?
I have no boots to wear korkers on
And yes I took a fall this time and luckily nothing happened....
That's a nice fish Maruthu. Thanks for sharing.
I never knew MJs could be targeted with poppers. I have seen people catch 1 or 2 on poppers but always though that was by fluke.
Also the location looks beautiful.
Thank you Humaid! I too haven't caught them on poppers till now.
It was very exiting to see the red come up to the surface and swallow the popper....
I have caught 100's of MJ, even on spoons but never on a popper. Having said that, a lot of my friends have caught these on Popper, a friend of mine took a large MJ on a Massive XL GT popper 8"+ fat beast of a popper. He was on boat, still way inshore on the estuary going out for GTs and saw some rocks in the shallows and cast towards it resulting in a very large MJ...
I too haven't caught an MJ on a popper so far.
I never though that they'd hit any popper at all, let alone large poppers.
Planning to fish more small poppers in the 3" to 5" range in my upcoming trips.
Nice catch Marthu.....expect more experiment from you.
Thank you Vijay!
I hope so to come up with more reports as well....
