Hi! guys i am desperately trying to get the best way to get that dream rohu but all the baits ive tried seem to ware off its charm too soon. any suggestions?
Have tried bread paste with fire-ants eggs and vanilla essence, raggy, atta, worms, wasp grubs, the most successful was green moss a wide range of fish seem to like it.

Robert,

Welcome to the forum. It will be very nice if you can introduce yourself in Introduction section and then starting asking about bait etc.

I think, this topic has been covered somewhere and I will try finding the link for you.

Just for a tip, use roasted gram powder (Chana) with sugar and elaichy. Add some oil with the final mix. You can use this mix with bread paste.

Best of luck.

Regards,

Ali.

We will discuss the bait later, first lets go through the rig you are using. As for as I know, you must be using bolt rig for targeting the Rohu. (I have fished with some anglers from your part of wood and the way they where fishing was bolt rig so I am assuming that you must be using the same rig.)

I think, the bait is not the only area of concern, while targeting a particular fish, hook, line, setup, method and presentation all play a very important role.

Rohu feeds by sieving the water through its gills and the best way to target them is by presenting the bait on or just below the surface. Before going for fancy baits, I would prefer using a piece of bread or some local weed (Including Alga) to target it.

If the fishing pressure is not very high, I am sure you will be able to catch this fish very easily by adopting the above suggestions.

You can also target this fish by stalking the fringe and using a zero balance setup in early morning or dusk time.

Any bengali friend will vouch for ant eggs but I am not sure about that. Any bait, which is creating a cloud of particles around it, can be used. If you have added any sweetener in your bait, the same can be used for Catla also.

Regards,

Ali.

Basically i love fishing light float fishing with 6lb to 9lb line. find it more of a challenge. i have experienced that the less visible the line is the better your chances of hitting the big ones.

Since we don't have any problem with weeds so i am able to play the fish much easily.

What do you mean, when you say sweeteners, coz ive used honey, patali good, banana, sugar etc. though ive had results but nothing that lasts for very long.

Bread with ants eggs go here only in one lake that we have but in the others and the river the fish dont even come close to smell it.

The angling club here has banned moss fishing what we cal 'seval'. they seem to say it encourages the weeds to grow in the lake. dumb idiots little do they realize that this moss is the actual diet of all the fish in the lake.

any way thanks for the info.
bye
