Hello I'm off to Kerala in November, I would love to go on a guided fishing trip (sea or river) if possible.

Has anyone done this in Kerala?

Can you recommend anyone that can provide all the kit.

Many thanks

Matt

I would love to catch one of them. Do you think spinning on the backwaters is possible. I think I need a guide as I want to know if its ok to touch the fish or not.

Just make sure they are not the poisonus kind, the ones with fangs have a toxic bite that screws up the nervous system, depending on how hydrated you are you could die within 2 - 36 hours. The way to tell them appart is the poisonus ones have a small white diamond shape patch on the head.

hahahaahaha Don't freak the poor guy out Bobby!

Don't worry mate. Snakehead are fish. They are just called snakehead and have nothing to do with snakes. The only thing I can tell you is not to put your fingers in its mouth. Small and very sharp teeth will give you thousands of very fine cuts that make tie knots a bit of trouble later.

You have gave me the fear already :-)
The nearest I get to a snake head is a large pike.

So what type of tackle would you go for. Do you get tackle shops in Kerala.
I was thinking of bringing telescopic rod, 20lb braid, steel traces, selection of lures and big gloves of course.
