Went fishing last week in one of the spots I usually fish after about 5 months....

A barramundi about 8 pounds (saw the fish) hit my lure, but couldn't get a hook up.
Caught a Mangrove Jack about 4 pounds, but slipped and fell on my butt and lost the fish while landing.
Had some other fish (must have been larger) hit my lure and pulled a few inches, but no hook up again :-(

Only landed a couple of small fish, but was a lot of fun casting within 15' and catching the fish from a puddle of water....
Going bare feet on those sharp rocks wasn't a good idea I think, but was still fun to fish that spot :-)

Cheers!
Maruthu

Maruthu,

Good to see your report with beautiful pictures.

Top notch equipment there.... St. Croix rod and is that a Shimano Calcutta reel?

It seems the dominant lure colours for fishing in India are the redhead and firetiger.

Thanks Binu!

Those rocks look like it has a lot of ferrous in it, but have no idea if they are volcanic.

Thanks Kingfish!

I prefer chrome with black back and the redhead though.
The grouper in the pic was caught on a silver/black back lure.
Haven't fished the fire tiger much, I think it is great for small lures.
Also, plain white is good. So is dark purple with black back when it gets dark....

That is a Shimano Catcutta 200GTB reel. Wish it came with a non disengaging level wind though. It is a nice setup for light lures/small fish. I have a G-Loomis Pro Blue PBR843C rod paired with a Shimano Calcutta 300 TE reel that I love for fishing from the west coast rocks. Hoping to catch some fish next time on those squidgies :-)

Thanks Venkat!

The lure was almost about to be out of the water when the grouper struck it.
May be that could be the reason that it wasn't able to swallow the lure at that point.
