Guys
I have just joined the site
i live in Melbourne Australia and will be coming down to Kochi for christmas holidays
after seeing so much about the catches from kochi on here i am quite keen to wet a line in kochi or surrounding areas
i am trying to catch something i havent caught in kochi before, so that means catfish, karimeen(pearlspot), bream is all out
i would like to target some other type of bigger fish preferably with lures
i will be bringing along with me a small travel rod and 2500 size reel and some lures, although im not sure what lures to get for the local fish there
trying to target something like mangrove jacks, cod or the threadfin salmon that i keep seeing on these posts here

edit - i forgot to add that im interested in targeting the snakehead fish as well

if anyone can suggest some spots where i can maximise my chances of catching a decent fish that would be great
also what type of lures to bring or even buy from india is ok
i have just under 3 weeks to go out and get stuff done here, and due to hristmas rush and working like crazy time is limited

Many thanks in advance
cheers

I haven't fished West Coast, but someone here should be able to guide you.
But If you can get closer toward the Cape, then there is some excellent fishing.

Thaks champ.
there might be a trip to Kanya kumari but its not confirmed yet. if thats the case where can i go in there, somewhere easily accesible is best as i will be in tourist mode (very limited gear and chance to travel for a fish)
cheers

In my opinion, if you want to fish in Kanyakumari you might have to dedicate one evening (4 pm till 7 pm) for fishing. I was there this past July and landed a 13 pound barramundi and my friend landed a 26 pound GT. But this was about 7 km from kanyakumari, which is not far at all in my opinion. Don't even bother about taking your fishing gear within in the town. I did that last time and had a million people behind me. For Kanyakumari you definitely need heavy gear, a reel loaded with at least 30 pond mono main line to tackle mean GTs from big boulders.

If you are not planning on bringing bigger rods, at least bring a heavy reel and you can buy a heavy glass rod here for about Rs 2,000 that you don't have to worry about taking it back home. I also suggest you to bring a gaff hook, if you are planning to fish Kanyakumari, and you can tie it to a 6' metal or wooden stick and use it here. I don't think I need to say more on gaffing as I've got a lot to learn on gaffing from the Aussies :)

Cheers, Maruthu
