Try using a stronger mono line with a one foot .60mm mono as leader,
use wire leaders as a last option as wire leaders can easily spook the fish

Better luck next time [smilie=gt-happyup.gif]

Try hooks with a long shank, Pacu will easly bite through thick mono as well because of their very large and strong human like incisor teeth. Not that I have caught any but seen a few Pacu fishing films. Perhaps you can watch some on YouTube.

Had been to the place this week end. This time, Salman and Sandy were invited too.

I did the first cast, and waited for a bite. but sadly not even a tilapia took the bait. Then came sandy... He cast, and the moment the float was straight, it went right in. And that's when the fight began... Similar to last time, the moment the fish was visible, it was gone the next second. This time I was using a wire leader, but Sandy was not. After trying for an hour, we went to another pond. Even this place had some Pacu, but not as big. Here we landed a lot of Pacu in the range of 0.5Kg - 1Kg. They did give a decent fight for their size. Here's Sandy with one of the catches.

Congrats on catching the Pacu, very good looking fish I must say and a refreshing sight from the good old Tilapia!

Hopefully we make a trip to one of the haunts around pune soon.

P:S : No fair man! I wasn't even told.....

It is a place full of restrictions. :-)
Not sure when I will get a chance next to visit the place.

humaid.. pacu should respond well to banana paste... mix is with some corn flour so that it gets chewy n thick.. so that is doesnt come off the hook easily... over ripe bananas will work better.. more smell.. pacus are primarily vegetarians.. and eat over ripe fruit readily.. and instead if using wire leaders use long shank "j" hooks... you do get them in bhori ally. all the best. i believe we have spoke over the phone over a year ago.. regarding murrel... when you had collected a bunch of murrel fry from the ponds near khadakvasla... also seen you on the aquarium hobbyist site... i believe i was also introduced to your friend who was interested in herpetology... a maharashtrian chap .. dont remember his name ... anyways.. keep in touch.

Wire leaders may spook the fish and results in few or no bites at all... try flurocarbon leader or thick mono leaders and see if bites increase.. I have seen significant increase in bites when i changed from wire leaders to Mono .. even the thickness of the leaders matters..smaller dia more bites..One more suggestion is to throw in small bits of the bait that you are planning to use so that fish would already be in a frenzy to feed when you throw in your line.. All the best...
