Just got back from 10 days in goa and although i didn't get the chance to fish all that much due to family stuff i had to do i did still manage to land a few fish :D

We stayed at Baga and Aranbol and managed a few hours at each place. Fished the river up at quriem beach, must say looks like a cracking spot.

I saw some huge fish jumping out in the middle, i thought the were Barracuda but a local said they were Salmon?? I fished in to Dark but had to leave about 7 just as it was starting to get busy with anglers. No fish for me but apparently it's been quite there for the last few weeks. Also met some nice people and it was good to have a chat with some fellow anglers.

Fished in the Baga river a few times too, tried with plugs and shads at night but the best i could manage was a snapper of about 2lb which tasted beautiful. On the last night i resorted to a bit of bait fishing with some sardine fillets and lost count of the amount of catfish i caught :lol: Although there is so many of them and they are a pest they do put up a fair fight on a light rod :D I did loose a few plugs to the river there, it's a bit snaggy in places but it was worth it for a snapper :D

Hoping to get a few months out there next year so I'll have more time and a better idea of where to fish.

Salmon!!! No mate, they must have been Threadfin, also referred to as Threadfin Salmon, locally called Ravas.

Thanks Bobby it must have been a threadfin then, the guy i spoke to didn't speak much English so all he said was Salmon. Wish i had got a boat out in the river mouth, surely that would be the best way to find them.

Hope you're right Sam, i know where and when to fish now just need to get back out there. The next few days should be good fishing as it's a full moon now and the tide is high during darkness, wish i was out there for a few days longer and had a bit more time to fish, i missed the prime time really.
