Hi, I have been fishing for a long time now but it all depends on my luck, sometiimes I catch plenty and at time I return empty handed. I do not have any knowledge of lures/baits, and the type of lures/baits for different kinds of fish.

I am particularly interested in SNAKEHEADS (maral). Please give me some proven techniques. I know a lake around here that has plenty of Snakeheads but they dont bite my bait. I use worms and all i get are young snakeheads. I am interested in catching big ones :)

Looking forward to hear from you all.

Thanks,
Ali

I didn't know about Mepps but I researched the internet and got hold of Salim from hyderabad who been great help. I went to a store but they do not have Mepps all they have is a litttle frog and small fish.
What do you think I should use, the frog or the little fish? Sorry I do not know the names of it.
Looking forward to your replies and have a great day.

Ali

Ohh by the way any suggestions on catching EELS (We call if BAM) I am not sure whats the real name of it but they are the ones with little mouth and really long body. They usually live around rocks in high current. Back in 94 I caught about 13 of those about 750 gms each. But I was just lucky and do not have any technique. If anybody knows something about these fish please reply

Thanks,
Ali
