You are unlikely to get any action on ragi, unless other anglers have been using it. Check what other anglers are using.

Atta or bread paste would is a better bet.

Regarding rigs, go for a simple float setup with the hook tied directly to mono. Use a size 8 to 10 hook, with just enough lead six inches from the hook to make the float stand. Fish around 10 feet from the bank if the water is deep enough.
Getting the bait a few inches off the bottom, or just resting on the bottom is essential for float fishing.

You will know when you have it right, because your float will just begin to stand when you are getting to the right depth setting for your float.

If you have a second rod, you can try ledger fishing further out, with a fixed lead just heavy enough to get your bait out there and keep the bait stationary. Keep the lead 9 inches to a foot from the hook, and try to get your line to sink to the bottom, ensuring that you do not disturb the bait by moving it after casting.

Adjust the drag so that line pays out of the reel when you pull on the line, without having to use too much force.

Again the simplest way is to tie your hook, is straight to the main line from the reel. There are many more complex ways of catching fish, but these two simple methods should catch you a few to start with.

Remember to use dull looking lead, i soak mine in water till it gets to the colour that i think will not spook the fish.

Use light line (8 to 10 lbs or 15lbs). The less conspicous your line, the better will be your chances of getting a bite.

Prepare some ground bait (you will find directions somewher on this site), and bait the area you plan to fish.
Tight lines

Thank you very much mates,

I have just copied the entire topic and taken the print out to make different ground baits.

I have chromium plated hooks, one fellow told me that these hooks will not work for Rohu/Catla.They are using copper coloured hooks.

May be i have to begin from the scratch for Rohu/catla.I have the experience of catching the murrel with a live bait when i was in my 7th standard.

In my home town, general people will not target carps by using hooks.The only method known was using throwing nets to catch that buggers.

Keep posting the different methods and make this topic "Encyclopedia of catching Carp". We can complie and can release book titled "how to deceive a Carp" Bait, tackle and tactics for carp.Author:Indian Angler

Chandu - I personally dont feel that the colour has anything to do with it as long as the hook as sharp and covered properly with the bait..

Go ahead mate.. catch a big one and make us proud :D

I dont agree with Gavin about hook colour. As those fish wise up to anglers, the slightest glint of metal from a hook and they are off.

I have been studying a Korda video given to me by Derek. Almost the entire video is shot with underwater cameras in real fishing situations.

You should see the way carp react to anything suspicious. Be it the visibility of the main line, the glint of the swivels on the rig, even the rig itself. They ensure that all swivels are well covered by sleeves that are of camo colour. Even the rigs are coloured in patches with marker pens, to break up the colour and blend in with the bottom of the lake. Same with the shape and colour of the lead.

Given that the carp in Europe are a darn sight smarter than the ones at home, it is quite amusing to see the lenghth anglers will go to, to fool a fish.

Owen - I agree with you... But like I mentioned in my statement.. The hook needs to be covered totally by the bait.. Any glimpse of shine and the fish will not take the bait...
But then, there always have been exceptions :lol:
