While fishing the Ramganga between Oct 22-23 this year I noticed that Mahseer are no longer hitting Spoons and Spinners. They looked interested in plugs only. In fact, on my first cast on the 23rd I noticed a 5 inch mahseer chasing my Rapala J-11 ! More out of curiosity though, I believe. But spoons and spinners seem to be less effective now.

I was fishing the beat no.3 on the Ramganga river. Just on the north boundary of Corbett National Park. This is one beautiful place. Plan to go their every year.

I think Mahseer do learn. When I started fishing Bhakra around 15 years ago then everyone was using spoons (tobies and cleos) and spinners. As teh years went by these became less and less effective. I landed up with plugs and the fishing was excellent. Then certain kind of plugs stopped working. Today trolling that was very productive has become very sluggish. The fish are there but since everyone uses the same tactics they do learn and adapt.
