Hi Karl,

I live near Baga in Goa and must admit that this beach is now too commercialised. In olden times, the estuary and rocks boasted of great fishing, but now with the tourists flocking to Baga, this area has become too noisy with all the boating activities during the day and night time. You can still try to fish from these rocks/estuary early in the morning till say 10-11AM. After that its noise time...

As an option, you could try the rocks at Vagator and Chapora. Also would like to mention that the fish dont bite like they used to at the Chapora jetty. Looks like they are spooked with the trawlers. So the rocks over there are a better option.

Do post details of your trip with pictures.

-Anto

I don't envy you.
I was down in Calangute and Bagga yesterday precisely to check out the creek as a possible fishing spot.
At low water, you can wade accross the mouth of the creek and as said above, the beach is massivly overcrowded with parasenders and jet skis powering through the sea close to to the beach amongst the hundreds of swimmers.
Just inside the mouth of the creek, it gets deeper and this would be an ideal spot to intercept fish with lures at night on a rising tibe but unfortunatly, there are so many boats anchord in there that fishing that spot would be all but impossible.

If you don't want to travel to far, a trip up to Chapora would probably be your best bet.

If you use google earth you can get a better picture of the coastline,the fishing gets more exciting down south due to the location of river mouths and creeks.:)))))))
