Hi all!!!!!!
I am from nagpur(maharastra) new to this community. from past 3 months or so i m trying to catch bigger fish in futala lake nagpur but i got only 3 mrigal on "konda goli". missed a grass carp of around 10 kgs because i was not able to handle it and a rohu of 5 kgs. my hook came out when it was near. i m using telescopic rod with 30 mm dia reel. hook size 4,5,6.

You people please advice me how to ground bait and bait for bigger fish

i think my setup of rod and reel is good enough b'cos all the people here r using the same setup.

regards
manish

Hi Manish and welcome aboard.
The guys here generally like the newbies to introduce themselves in the "Introductions" forum because everybody is so spread out that it helps folks with fishy interests to hook up.
That aside, I can't offer any specific advice on the species that you mention but generally the sorts of baits and tactics suggested for bream, crucians, roach and (especially in the case of rohu) mullet on UK websites (beefed up a bit) should see you right for these fish.
For some more Indian oriented takes on baits, remember that the IA search function is your friend and will turn up threads like this one.
http://www.indianangler.com/viewtopic.p ... light=rohu

It helps to remember that the effort involved in finding, adapting and employing alternative baits tackle and tactics pays dividends and will hopefully see you land more fish.

What strength line are you currently using ? Would you get more bites if you dropped down to a lower breaking strain ? If you did that and adjusted the drag to avoid break offs, could you safely let the fish run without loosing it in snags ? Would a braided hooklength which is softer and thinner than nylon (but just as strong) offer you a way of getting more bites and still be able to keep fish out of snags ?
These and a thousand other questions will allow a thinking angler to catch more than people who "r using the same setup" as everybody else.

Hi
Manishhgin ! welcome to IA. Orignally I also belong to Nagpur. way back some 20-25 years back i used to do fishing in the very same futala / talankhedi lake. Great lake... you try... as the time goes on you will catch big catchs, try both the side of the lake the one with wall and other end with hazari pahad slops, you get different fishs at both the ends. While going to Pench Tiger reserve i noticed people Angling at Kanhan river below the bridge, how is that location ? even some water bodis/lake near Koradi and Mansar seems to be good locations. In fact last whole week i was in Nagpur i could have join with you.Now I'm back to pune. :lol:
