I guess the easiest way to target them if you're fishing for the pot would be worms and a small hook. A rudimentary hook sinker float should work fine. They're not particularly shy fish but tend to be bait stealers.

I've never used lure for them, no reason why they won't take a size 0 or 00 Mepps.

I have tried the spinners but in vain.
But they readily take ragi on small hooks.
wow......they fight very well on ultra light tackle and fry very well on the pan.

Ragi worked well for them at croc rocks on the Cauvery. I've caught them elsewhere on worm.
Guess there's no point trying spinners then!

If you are adamant catching them by artificial bait, plastic worm will be the right choice. A very slow retrieve with a slight twitching action is what I will recommend.
