I am planning to do some bait fishing (night) from the surf for a while.
I live in Chennai, I need to buy some mullet from the local fish market.
Any one here knows the local name for Mullet in Chennai fish markets.
Is there any season for them, or is there any particular variety of Mullet I need to use.

Planning to toss Mullets in Whole or in strips or use Mullet heads from the beach this weekend during nights to see if I have any luck with rays or small sharks or any barrcudas that hit the surf.

Any suggestion on other bait fish is also very much welcome and their local names will be more helpfull for me to get them.

Thanks,
LF

Thanks Guys,

I checked it with a pro and also on some website and came to know that it is "Madavai" in Tamil. Also heard that they are easiliy available in the fishmarkets year round.

alexisgreenwood,
Thanks for the link, that website appears to be down now. Will try that after a while.

Gone fishing today in the river mouth in Kovalam, did not use mullets as the ones available in the market were too big for a bait . Used shrimp as bait with no luck.

Thanks,
LF
