Hi, this is for anybody looking to fish at Pondicherry. There's this pier just a little way off from the one near Seagull. This one is open to anybody and extends out about 100m into the sea. This is at the rivers mouth going into the fishing harbour. It does hold promise though the last outing here yielded no results. If anyone else has fished here as well post your comments please.

Hi Pandim,
That would be wonderful. Are you based in Pondicherry or Chennai or around here. Lets plan up for some time when the tide's right and in the morning. I hopefully will be able to arrange a boat to go out to sea because my friend there knows a few fishermen. Fishing off the shore does'nt seem to be yielding much results. anyway I'm happy to go with anything as long as we're fishing. PM me and lets work out a plan.
Cheers

Hi WINGZ,

I have tried my luck in the pier you have mentioned. I managed to catch couple of cat fishes of decent size. my biggest was around 4kgs Cat fish.

I have checked with the local fishermen over there, There used to catch barramundi and some snappers with live prawns.

Do let me know your trip plan, I will try to join you guys.

Pandim, Sorry i couldnt pick up your call. I was travelling. I will call you tonight.

Hi salmonmani,
That's awesome . Personally prefer Barramundi to catfish. Now ... what's the local name for Barramundi ?
Pandim's up for it too so we should get out there soon. Let me know what you guys plan up.
Cheers

Barramundi is called "Kuduva" in TAMIL. When you checked the place recently?

I went there three months back and it was totally polluted with full of plastic bags. How is the place now?

Hi Salmonmani,
Koduva .... aha.... now that's interesting. I was there this last Sunday 7th June. The waters were clean but a little coloured maybe from the fresh water inflow. There's a guy in Mahabs who has live Prawns and good sized ones. Thing is now to get a can and aerator and keep them alive till Pondicherry through all that splashing along the way :!: Worth a try

Hi Wingz and Mani

we'll need appropriate hooks for prawn, I've got size 4 & 6 mustad trebles but they're too big. also good to have a prawn pin for proper bait presentation.

we can check out the shop in royapuram for smaller but strong hooks. I need good quality swivels too.

Regards
Pandim

Hi pandim

would you be kind enough to explain how one uses a prawn pin to hold prawn more securely and is it possible to use them with live prawns and what exactly is its purpose

Hi Pandim,
I dont know what a prawn pin is . I've used Mustad 2/0 hooks so far and that's for bigger prawns about 3 or 4 " . Thats rigged through the last or second last tail segment and I've found the prawns are alive for quite a bit so long as I dont do any power casts off the ground or pendulum. I prefer to do an easy cast quite close to the rocks ... not too near so the prawn can get under the rocks but just about 6 feet away or so. Most often the Koduva are close up to the rocks rather than in open water. For smaller prawns in freshwater I've used 16 size hooks hooked through the horn ( ?? ) on top of the prawns head.
These are just methods I've used before and it's been effective for me but I'm happy to try anything new as well. About the swivels I have quite a few so I can give you some, no worries.

Vincent,
That's a nice set of fish you got at Kochi . I must give you a call when I'm there next. Look forward to going fishing in those parts again.

Happy angling both of you
Cheers

Vincent...Good on ya for the research.... interesting reading. I reckon I'm too clumsy to rig it up like that :roll: ....so .... I'll stick to looking for the live ones. Look forward to hearing about your new catches with the shrimp rig. Happy fishing ....
