SpartanSteen,
I envy you. On Baga. That's nearly my beach.

To get started get to Anjuna or Vagator and start fishing from the rocks. Bait - squid, prawns or get casting on the incoming tide.


The best advice I could give you is go through all the post after you have done a 'Goa' search on the forum. Then get on your knees and pray that a few Goa Gods get in touch with you.

Get yourself some 4 and 5 inch soft plastic shads and some shallow diving minow lures.
These are what you want for fishing the river mouths at night for barramundi and mangrove jacks.

If your fishing will be in the daytime, its worth thinking a bout a few long casting bass wedges and pencil poppers as well.

Toby lures.... are they spoons or floating lures??? As ken said soft plastic shads and some shallow diving minnow lures will be useful. Also remember you are using 12lbs line then try to get some live prawns and size 3 bait holder hooks. Also try the locations Mahaseerken suggested. North and south Anjuna has rocks, Chapora jetty go towards the mouth, Vagator and Baga are good locations to fish in North Goa.

However remember if you are using either spoon or lures I can’t say about the rate of success since all the locations are well fished by the locals using lures. Spoons are a top water lure be careful to use it over the rocks since you might get a snag. Try a slow fast slow retrieve. The best bet is using live bait or soft plastic shads and some shallow diving minnow lures.

Best of luck……

Another good location close to Baga is Sinquerim.

Once you are at Sinquerim jetty, ask for the custom rest house which is straight ahead on the dirt road from the jetty. Request the guard and he will let you go to the rocks which are behind the rest house.. it is an excellent spot as a small estuary runs in between Sinquerim jetty & coco beach. The place is rarely netted as lot of boats with tourist pass from there.

Hope this help...

Santosh

Hi Santosh, Thank you for the location it's going to be valuable for me. I'll be in Goa from end Dec 07 to end Jan 08 and most of the days i'll be fishing. I would like to join other anglers during this period in Goa. Looking forward to make new friends and have a good time fishing (err, feeding the fish)

I keep visiting belgaum in karnataka for some work which is 100 something KM from Goa ... will try & plan a visit to belgaum just before some weekend in Jan and then drive down to Goa.. would love to meet up with you guys.. ..

soft plastic shads definitely work, but the problem with like the ones made by storm is that the hook is at the top and most often than not, mangrove jacks will hit the lure but at the bottom part near to the head or the tail... If you hook a MJ on lures with two set of trebles, you would notice that most of the time the MJ will get hooked on the trebles near to the head.. this is because MJ attack the head of their pray to make it swift & qiuck kill..

I too have modified a storm rubber shad to get more hookups .. will try it on the week of 17th December when I go to tarkarli..

Santosh
