Greetings!

I know I haven't been reporting in a while, but I think this trip was a bit special....

I was at the shore for four days this past week and fished hard. Couldn't fish at night because I was there with my girlfriend and I know for sure that I missed a lot of action because I wasn't fishing the night high tide. Oh well.... However, I fished a lot during the day though. Tried my ultra light trout gear and caught some small needle fish and bait sized GT babys. The actual fishing was very very slow, without even a strike for the first three days.

I hit a different spot on the fourth day and had a 4' barracuda strike my 11 cm Rapala Husky Jerk right in front of my feet in crystal clear water but didn't hook up. I tried to cast a few minnow type lures in the fire tiger and silver colours and nothing to show for it. I then switched to a popper and it lit up.... :-) I had Mangrove Jacks in the 2 KG range go crazy on the popper. I missed a few strikes and even missed one after fighting for a few seconds on the popper, but managed to land two fish. I kept one for dinner and released the other.

It was a lot of fun on a 7' St. Croix Avid inshore rod rated for 10-20# line, paired to an Abu 4600C5 reel.
Since the fishing was so slow for the first three days, I did not bother carrying my GoPro on the last day :-( Next time....

Cheers!
Maruthu

Hello Maruthu,

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.

Regards,
Kingfish

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.

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...

Nice report there Maruthu! Keep 'em coming bud.

I guess the time and tide has to match, but I've had some MJ action on poppers as well... Just to add more confusion to the mix. LOL....

Cheers...

Hi Maruthu,

I have tried for MJs on popper but have not been successful, I have not even got a hit. Having said that I have not tried really fervently and perhaps I should try this by taking poppers only, like I did last year with my fly gear so I am forced to use poppers only.

Anyway, for what I have heard, they are more inclined to take poppers at night on a slow retrieve, same as with Barras.


Regards,

Bobby
