hey aaron,

If u guys just want to hv some fun on light tackle.. go to Sequerim jetty, take the mud road (its on the left, the tar road on the right goes to the Jail :lol: :twisted: ).. a lil further u'll see some houses.. u can fish from there.. OR if u go a lil further u'll find a custom guest house.. tell the guard that u want to do some fishing & he will allow u in.. but remember the rocks behind the guest hose are not safe after dark.. u could easily hv a fall.. so better avoid

Dona paula & sequerim jetty (not the custom house) are the best, very easy to reach

Best time will be after 7.30 PM.. as bait use cut sardines or prawns.. u will get plenty of cats, Palo..

For big ones, .. dean can help u better..

Saiki, i bet u hv one :lol: .. btw do u see kingfisher in ur dreams ?? :twisted:

Boys
the fishing in Goa has quietened down a bit, but recently some 10 pound snappers and barramundis have been taken off the bridge with live bait.
Santosh where this custom guest house, is the rocks off there good for spinning would possibly try it out this weekend.
Aron give a call when u get here will take u to place where u get a 1000 bites ... Santosh can vouch for that :)
cheers
Dean

Mosquito repellent, Aaron :lol: :lol: .. dean take him to the 1000 bite location..

Dean The custom house is little ahead of Sequerim jetty (The place from where the boats go for dolphin rides.)..

From the jetty, the road goes to the jail (on the right & up hill) .. dont take this road.. on the left u'll see a small dirt road with excise & custom office of Sequerim in the corner..

Abt 5oo mts on the road.. u'll find the custom guest house....
rocks behind are said to be good.. .. but I didn't try it... i chose to stay in between the jetty & the rocks.. this is the place where i got the rapala red head crushed.. so there is something lurking..

Did u again try the place where we saw a guy catch MJ..??

Hey Saiki,

If it's ok with you can you please also send me the map. I visit goa once a year for a short while and normally end up fishing from the rocks at anjuna/vagator and a few time at the river on the way to Arambol.

Can you mail it to mahseerken@gmail.com

Thanks

Hello Aaron,
There is a fisherman called Diago who will take you out in his boat at the dona paula jetty.His family runs some stalls and are also involved in boat rides there,I am sure if u ask at the boat ride stand they will point u in his direction.if you are interested let me know and i will PM you his charges and contact details.we trolled with reasonable success but had better luck in the night ,fishing the reef just off the jetty with bait.
All the best.

There is lots of info about fishing in Goa on this site and on the forums of http://www.anglersnet.co.uk/.

My advice would be to do a search on both forums and possibly on http://www.worldseafishing.com/forums/ as well.

Best of luck. Although Icatch plenty when I'm out there, my mate reckon that the salmon fishing really comes into it's own in the monsoon - although they mainly target them at bit later in the year.

Barra in Bombay! Have I been missing out on al the action. Make so many trips there but have been to afraid to cast into those plastic packet waters. Next time.

Is there any real fishing during the rains. I used to catch catfish off marine drive. Never got anything else.

Deano .. what Santosh says is right .. follow directions and you cannot miss it .. Try a moonlight night with the tide peaking at around 830pm ..I was fishing there once -they call it Chougles bungalow - and had all of 9 hits from Barrmundi there .. pulled out 2 ... but you have to get the timing and tide right

Fred
I did get to the bungalow, but the gate was locked .. !! jumping across would be an option but I hope theres another way around it. Have u fished the mouth of the river opposite it looks like a good option to spinning in the monsoons with no boat traffic. Since I could not get thru the custom Bungalow I tried casting opposite the Jail got a big hit, the rubber shad came back in Half.
Any news of Ravas in our BBay waters .. heard that they come around there about this time.
cheers
Dean

Dean, Try that place man.. the mouth of the river is also a good spot

I was very surprised with the big hit I got, could not figure out what happened.. it was only after I saw the lure I figured I missed something big.. that bugger chewed it & just missed the treble by a fraction.. it was incoming tide and the time was about 9.00 PM..

Fred, yesterday went to the fish market & saw plenty of Rawas.. is this a good time?

Please make a plan again for Madh.. I am dieing to see some action..

Deano , Havent been going out fishing so really wouldnt know ...but previouly now would be the time we would be pulling out the buggers .

Santosh , all the rawas come from out of mumbai now , Srivardhan , Bankhot , Harihareshwar and up north from Gujarat side .. Like Santosh and Mken say ... all there is to get now is plastic bags

I have been speaking to a few people about the ravas, the report concludes - May june july - maharashtra Srivardhan , Bankhot , Harihareshwar - Let me specially highlight bankot, on the main beach to the far left hand side - the rocks are deep and water is great, I have a local die hard fishman there who has claimed to have caught barramundi and Ravas of this rock, I have fished the rock and can certainly vouch for its potential, thou I got only one big strike and landed a snapper later. The rock is the far left of the bay on the beach where the river opens out.
In Goa - Ravas season starts in October where the maximum shore catches happen. I have tried last September but did not see leave alone catch any. Thou in Oct I seen a huge ravas been pulled of the Vasco - cortoilim bridge. The Pillar no 2 and 4 seem to have the maximum action, live bait and spoons seem to work the best. Now further South - close to kawar Ravas have been caught in July and as well as September, but these are not confirmed reports. It would be well our while to figure out the migration pattern of this Fish. Hope someone in the forum could shed some light on the subject

Hi Dean,

is the spot near to the main jetty..?..
Wondering if i can make a short trip to Bankot next weekend..
:D ..
Fred, I guess you been working a lot & you need a break....

I don't think there are any hotels to stay in Bankot & you have to stay in Harihareshwar.. problem is the ferry from H'war to bankot starts a lil late in the morning..

Dean dont miss July, do plan a visit here.. :wink

Hey!

Forgot to add. Once you get the map open google earth and compare the two. You'll get to see the good fishing spots (rocks, harbours, jetties, river, etc) and the map will help you with the names.

try it, it's pretty cool.

cheers

Thats a good idea Ken,

Google earth is a good way to see different spots. but it would help only if that area has been sufficiently magnified.

I have forgotten about GEarth.......will check it out 7& see if they have updated their satellite images.

Google earth is a great tool for finding hard fishing structure but river mouths with shifting sands change a lot and the GE maps arn't that up to date.
I regularly fish an estuary of a small river on the west coast of India that is all shifting sand. First time I fished it, the main channel was on the south shore. GE still shows the channel on the south shore but every time I've been back since, the channel has been either in the middle of the river or hard up against the north bank.
The long and short of it is that you simply can't get better information than that made available by using the Mk1 eyeball in daylight and preferably at low water.

It's not just rivers either. The lads that I know in GOA tell me that the whole of Arambol beach virtually vanishes in the monsoon and that will change everything.
