Just arrived in south Goa. I spent two days looking around and getting a feel for some spots to try.
I prefer rock fishing deep water. Picked a spot for a sunset fish just after high tide. I wasnt very confident as water didnt look as fishy as spots i usually fish at home. Tried a few surface lures, popper and stickbaits with no success. Put on my old faithful halco max redhead (sinking) and first cast, got smashed by a 41cm Red snapper(jack). Couldnt explain the surprise and joy of catchinv my first fish in this great country. And my first attempt!
If anyone out there is keen for some company on fishing trips let me know!!

Congratulations on your success! It is not easy going to a new location and finding productive places to fish.

I usually troll with the Halco Max (because of its shape and weight) so it was interesting that you use it for spinning .... anyhow, it is a good lure.

Good luck for the future and let us have more reports, with pictures if possible.
