Hi Friends,

Can somebody suggest me the baits for fishing in Bangalore lakes, I have tried with atta paste, bread, chicken liver & worms. But no luck, I have seen fishes up to 09-10kgs (catfish) in the same lake. I would be grateful for your suggestion please.

Regards
saravanan

Hi Fellow anglers,

Need some advice on the same subject. Been twice to Khadakvasla lake & tried all sorts of combinations, but no luck. Tried Bhajji's( Pakoras), insects, mepps spinners, etc. Will try chicken intestine & earthworms next time. The problem is a lot of weeds near the shore. We see a lot of tiddlers around.According to the locals, the big fish are in the deep area about 100m inside. How does one get his bait that far. Also some guidance on the size of hooks. We see big fishes splashing around early in the morning about 50m from the shore.

Also some guidance on presentation
whether to use floating bait or
Use a float with lead weights ( how deep must the bait be placed) or
Bottom fishing ( method of baiting)

I read the Carp Fishing book & use of ground baiting ( Boilies). As novices, we need basic guidance.
Regards
Cavalier

Use the spoons mentioned in this post. They will work for catfish

No mater how much one read on techniques and baits, ..nothing better than going fishing with an experienced angler.

Pratap, visit powai and fish for a day with Ali.. :wink:

Hi Santosh,
We had gone along with an experienced angler & were following his instructions but luck was not in our favor. I spent a day with Ali bhai also but I dont think we can adopt the Powai style here( Too many weeds). In addition, poor knowledge of preparing ground bait. The locals have been catching small mahaseer, rohu & tilapia.
Regards
Cavalier.

Hi Friend,

I can suggest u 2 places where u can get the ground baits prepared and the ideas to fish in Khadakvasla. The first place is the Ghorpadi Fish Market near the Golf Course & the second place is Dapodi Fish Market. In both the places there are some guys who prepare these baits try ur luck to get it prepared. We have been getting our fishing baits prepared from those guys for the week end. Tell them the baits are for weekend fishing. Try ur luck!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are not too expensive.

if you looking for fresh supply of earthworms all round the year then you can try garbage pit in hadapsar industrial area (off sholapur highway) near Honeywell company...
you can get fresh earthworms all round the year there......

HI Cavalier,

be careful about what you use for baiting at Kahadakvasla as you might get picked up by the authorities......the lake supplies drinking water to Pune. I have been out there fishing & only once caught a rohu on some borrowed bait :lol: (this was @ 10 years ago)

The over flow (canal) also has some decent fish.

When I was really bored, I would go to Emperors Canal to fish (only small fish here). Now I dont have a clue if it still exists or what the present condition is.

yes emperors canal near fatima nagar is still there and have small fish as well........
one more thing you can go to panshet and there you can catch fish
as well as on the way to panshet you will find so many spots where you can fish.....
all that river strech looks pretty promising. i did enquire with locals and they said it has good fish in it....
by the way panshet is the place where i went fishing for the very first time......... and now im hooked.......

Hi Hozefa,

I have been fishing at Panshet lake..... I have fond memories of the place....... Riding at 4am on a bike in short pants & in winter.....reaching near the lake but scared to access it since everything was pitch dark (there were no lights near the lake at that time), seeing pelicans take flight at the break of dawn....all in all I had a lovely time there.

There are a lot of big fish there. I have seen some chaps pull out monsters (sorry i dont know what fish they were) but as soon as they caught the fish they used to pack up & run away as the lake was leased out to some some company & the watchman used to take the fish away.
Another problem there was netting. Do they still net the place ?

indeed its a very beautiful place.....
over all pune is a beautiful place and i also have found memories of pune.....
its been 2-3 years that i have not been to that place but when i last went there it was summer time and water level was very low....
what i got to know from there is yes they still net the place
i befriended restaurant guy there and he is lovely chap...
what i got to know form them is that down stream of panshet dam is also a good place for fishing....

Hi Hozefa & Keyur,

Thanks for the inputs. The first batch of worms from the Trenching ground at Hadapsar are already with me for tomorrows fishing. My office (Tata Consultancy) is next door to Honeywell. I located the groundbait guy at Ghorpadi Fish market, His name is Laxman & needs three days notice to prepare a batch of groundbait. Next time.
Khadakvasla Dam is no problem because being ex-Army still has some benefits. Panshet is the place for big fish & will be visiting it very soon. Trying to get to the Mulshi dam area also. The Emperors canal is still in use but heavily polluted because the locals use it to wash vehicles, vegetables, etc.
Regards
cavalier
