Hi friends,

I went to the canyons on Saturday but had no luck. The only catch of the day was a decent mahimahi but unfortunately it did not take the lure on the Tank. Again took a guided tour to Karamat on Tuesday, but came back empty. Something seems to have happened to the waters here, maybe El Nino at work again Sad

Anyhow, it's time to say goodbye to Tank. I handed it over to a friend who'll be taking it to New York on Saturday, and shipping it back to Dominick.

Below are the only pics I can post...Here is a photo of the Tank getting a taste of The Arabian Sea South-West of Karachi Near 123 in over 1500ft of water, ready for action!

Best,
Ijlal

Shucks!  Had been looking forward to pics of the Tank in action against a 140# tuna.  Good effort, Ijlal.

Sorry to hear that the fishing was slow.  Great picture of the Tank.  Would you caption the photo and say something like "Here is the Tank ready for action at (blank) Canyon, Indian Ocean? Arabian Sea?"  Let's show the Tank has been there.  Dominick

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

Iljal,

That photo was just one I found on the Internet, by searching for Spy Costume.

The "melodrama" of a "smuggled" Tank added so much "intrigue" and "atmosphere" to the story of the Tank . . . LOL !

Tight Lines !

The Tank is safely on my bench, thanks again ijlal!
ijlal has mentioned that one of the dog might not be engaging, I checked to see if I noticed the same, but didn't, I did it quickly though.
Since he mentioned it, I will still go ahead and break it down just to make sure.
I will contact Dominick afterwards and see where he would like me to send the Tank next.

Best!

Sal, maybe I had been expecting lesser play, so thought one dog might be the problem. I got this perception while jigging with the reel. You created the Tank, so would be able to tell by the feel of it.
