@apoo: They are local, greenish black color. Rarely get above 2kilos. Hybrids (Thai/Auzzie) haven't populated our waters properly.
@Raj: Yes u r right about the fever, but singhi stings are more painful. But we kno how to immobilize them.
@MKEN: Will try ur dogfood recipe, pretty interesting!! Thanks a lot.
About the baits, these magurs tend to be a bit choosy about their bait, we catch them mostly using small n fresh freshwater prawns and earthworms only. Another thing they love are Wasp Larvae
But thats rare.
My main question is about the techniques of using hand-line to catch fish (I know the method is quite archaic
) . I know that many of you have used it to catch fish atleast once in your life. Please tell me how its done.
