Hello anglers,

After the rains have hit Goa, I have been going fishing in the morning but dont get any hits these days. The locals in Goa come up to me and tell me that the rain water entering the sea has caused something known as 'Bhaang paani' and also say that now the water has become colder and fish dont bite during this period. This happens till early July and then things become normal and the fish start biting again.

Is this a fact or a myth? I thought fishing during the monsoons was a good time to fish and enjoy the rains.

BTW, the only Bhaang I know is the one which people get knocked out of their senses during Holi :D

Bhaang paani is Neap tide. The times when the difference between the High and the Low tides is less.

Also, it is believed that the best season for Saltwater fishing is when the weather is warm, that is February to May and close to Diwali just after monsoons in India.

I have too experienced less activity during Neap tides and colder weathers, but not a perfect judge as I hardly am able to catch fish anyways. . :-) Gurus will tell you better.

Hi Antonio,

Bhaang pani is nothing but the neap tide as rightly said by Sanju. It comes once during a fortnight. It starts from the 7th day after full moon or a new moon. During this time the water current during high and low tides is slow. This means that there will not be much of a difference in water levels for both high tide and low tide. People say that there is not much of a fish activity during bhaang tide but I have caught lots of fish in bhaang tide also though i love a full moon tide especially at night.
