Hey Medappa

Maybe you should post a brief introduction of yourself in the Introductions section. You will get more replies to your posts if members know who you are.

Hey Nikhil

You won't catch much in the monsoon except for a cold! This is the time when we anglers start making spinners and flies for the next season that starts in November/December.

When the first rains come the fishing will be good until the water turns muddy. Once the water is coloured you can use worm to catch catfish but i'd rather not waste my time with that.

You can forget about catching Mahseer in muddy water :(

Get up north mate. During the rains some place have a lot of bachwa, mulley and other catfish. Especially at sluice gates that are opened to control water levels. But Bops is right, worms, gut and other smelly stuff is al the fish will take.

Freshwater is slightly more forgiving since the bait stays in one place due to the absence of a current. Normal groundbaiting should work well in lakes even when muddy. Extra flavour will be a good idea in muddy water.

Lure fishing in lakes will not work when the water is muddy unless the fish are really aggressive. This happens when there is a sudden fluctuation in barometric pressure.

Contrary to the popular belief, in muddy water noisy big plugs work better than flashy or shiny plugs. We normally up the size of our plugs and go for rattling rapalas, real big jointeds and others that have rattlers.

Just to add a bit.

The best place to fish in muddy water is where it meets the clear stuff (if any). This is where the predator play Hide and Eat with the other guys.

Locals at kundalika say that the best time for fishing is in rains.
I guess, because of the muddy water the fish get closer to the banks..

As regards saltwater fishing, just before the rains starts is supposed to be the best time to fish.
A word of caution,Fishing rods can act as lightning rods, anglers have to be careful when there is a lightning storm.

Bait fishing, I have caught the most and vaired variety of saltwater fish during the monssons. You need to use an assortment of bait to achieve this.

The problem fishing with lures during the rains is that the water colour is so poor that you will not catch anything unless you are very lucky, besides that there is the wind factor that makes casting and spinning very difficult and very rough seas. If you can manage to pick a right day and a spot where you can avoid these factors, especially one where the water clears it will be very productive.

I agree Bobby, I have seen twice the number of local fishermen with hand lines on the Jetties in Mangalore in premonsoon and monsoon season.

They use .90 mm, 1.10 mm and thicker monofilament with heavy weight attached, bait is usually cut mackrel or whole sardine. They cast their heavy line in the worst of weather conditions.

I think the advantage of fishing during the dry season is that the water is clear the fish cab seethe spinner or bait clearly, during monsoon the the river water is muddy in colour. Also, you can try casting from different points in the river which u cant do in the rainy season as the river is flooded. As far as getting fish is concerened it is all about your knowledge of fish habits, bait used and tackle......I think tackle can make a big difference.
