Seems may few angles are interested in chital fishing, hence only handful threads. Chital is carnivorous by birth and basically a fresh water fish and need constant running water. they are most active at night but that doesnt restrict them from feeding day time - this is all i know about them
Few days back i went to a lake [quite big, clear water(visibility about 1.5 - 2m) and deep] to fish rohu and miraculously cough 3 rohus in 30mins each measures from 900gm to 1.5kg. Locals told me there are good size chitals and seems very illusive coz only few luckly person caught them, some due to poor quality fishing lines. Locals use bread as a bait (ground bait) mainly and also live worms.
So my concern is what bait is more effective for them? should i go for fishing lure?
I was searching on net and found that Yo-Zuri SASHIMI JOINTED FW(SP) hard lure is a good contender - it imitate locomotives of a live fish swimming around.
Can anyone share some knowledge about it?
