In Pakistan fishing takes a nose dive as the temperatures drop. Fishing is hard work as the fish go on a hunger strike. :cry:

You have to look for opportunties towards the south ( which is a lot of traveling). The only species on offer in abundance is Common Carp ( Gulfam/Chinese Carp) as the darn fish eats all year around and spawns 2 to 3 times a year. :evil:

Whats the situation in the indian waters. Do u manage to catch any masheer, Rahu, sol ( Murrel) when the water becomes colder. Or are they any tactics that can be used to entice the sluggish fish :?:

Have tried it a couple of years ago for Sol.Definitely there will be Catfish in that but I feel it will be small ones. Mangur - the african catfish is likely to be there too. I vividly remember that day for there was some good "music to the ears" of black partridges calling.

In a larger body of water like a large lake or reservoir, thermoclines play a big part in where fish can be found. A good fishfinder/sonar is essential in locating schools of baitfish and thermoclines.

I dont usually fish in the lowlands during winter but I have tried it a few times with zero results. I have seen people catch the occasional common carp but thats about it.

Cold water fish though bite very readily in winter, but we usually give the trout a rest. The traditional time to catch big snow carp though is in winter, the preferred bait being a dried mulberry.

Catfish do bite in winter, they dont seem to get as sluggish as mahseer. As IG explained though they dont often take lures during this period but bait works.

In my quest to understand fish better and to check on my angling skills -I have been fishing winters. Let me explain my experiences
I found mahseer do take but will bite in a shy manner / not as agressively as they generally do - on this particular day I got 3 strikes but no hook up.
Then at the other spot - I caught one mahseer every time in the months of Nov Dec and Jan and Feb also.This was necessitated by either a person coming from abroad or once a friend saying lets see U catch a mahseer in winters.But 1 strike and hookup only in the whole day and U can see them going shy.They were all good size fish -smallest 13.5 Kgs and the biggest 18.5 kgs(photo earlier posted in muscular structure of Mahseer)
Besides this I have not had much of other luck - in fact no other luck

Thanks for the tip IG - I for one am an angler who rarely reels in slow - I generally convey to the fish -"Grab me or I am gone".
I know people who catch fish and always reel in slow and I know it to be productive.
Enjoy your trip
