@ziegen-joseph

Really nice to hear from you. Perhaps the first one amongst us who uses metal lures primarily and has such excellent results with them ( I presume the Gotcha is the metal version?) !

I am so glad that you are also using the Halco Twisty and to such good effect, as I favour this metal lure and always carry one in my tackle box (usually in the 40gm size).

Had no idea that you had hairtail in India ..... we catch these in the winter in Sydney.

Some pictures of your catches on the metals would be most appreciated and enjoyed by the members.

Regards,
Kingfish

@Kingfish

Yes all three are metal Lures, for some reason, wood and plastic hasnt really cashed out for me in saltwater!

I do throw the roosta popper and a few other halco lures but i guess i must be doing something wrong! the paddletail squidgies have worked for me but more sporadic! I did try uploading more pics but the file size is too big as they are right now! I will bring them down to under 300kb and try again!

cheers!

A couple of months back all I caught were Hairtails, and now they are gone!

It's a funny world ! Most anglers in India shy away from metals and swear by Halco Laser Pro or other plastic minnows/ Halco poppers.

So you also use Squidgies?

Haretails seem to be a seasonal thing, we will get a run of them here in Sydney in our winters and then they disappear for the rest of the year as well.

Are haretails good eating?

Yes, picture resizing to fit narratives (under 300kb as per this Forum's rules ) is a hassle.

If you are downloading from an iPhone to an iPad, you may care to look at how to downsize by reading my submission on this topic in the forum.

@Kingfish

More like Android to PC, it is a hassle indeed, tried a few web apps but pics become grainy,

Hairtail is eaten both fresh and salted and dried, I like the salted and dried ones with some roasted onions and garlic and pepper, or I crisp fry it, it tastes quite good, with a strong fishy flavour.

I guess I'm doing something wrong, or I guess I'm a bit too hasty with my technique! Also where I fish, casting is a big problem, so metal lures really work well for me, I use squidgies too and they work, but metals have worked better still! I'm still open to plastics and I go throw them regularly, I guess there's a learning curve and I'd get there!

Hairtail make brilliant eating, i do not like the stomach portion though. They are a major commercial fish in India, called Ribbon-fish commercially in the Konkan and Balla in Marathi.
