Hi Debajyoti

I am no expert in fishing but here is what i have seen in a dam near Pune

The local villagers throw fish waste (guts, liver etc) into a section of the lake where there is more mud than rocks. After some time they come back to the place and put a used old cotton 'Sari' at the bottom. Then they put some more of this bait on the top. within minutes 2 people gently lift up the sari and take out quite a few prawns.

However these prawns are mostly used as live bait for eels, murrels etc

I am not sure if anyone can catch a prawn with a rod, but it would be interesting to know, if possible, how it is done

Regards, Anand

Firstly dont ask the questions in the search bar, as that wont help a bit... Type one or two words of the things you want to know... like for e.g "bait catla" or "bengal fishing locations" " fishing techniques",

As for the location ask anglers from your region or the region you want to go, or identify a spot on gmaps and recce it...
For a good season, again ask anglers... a fishing season differs from region to region... its not like, its good fishing there, so its good here too...
and all the questions dont have simple answers... lot of factors come into mind for each question

Prawns are scavengers so you can use a variety of bait.

You need an ultra light short rod or about 4 feet, light line and very small hooks.

Regards,

Bobby

Sorry mate, I do not have that info, there are some shrimping rods available especially in Malaysia. But really try to find the lightest rod you can and use it. You need a light rod to feel the shrimp taking the bait and not to over kill the strike.
