Hi Guys..

HA at last something.... this is the picture of my last trip..... i have been trying all kinds of baits for catfish ..... as that's the only fish which is normally found in ponds and lakes, nowadays in Bangalore.....sat from day break and almost dusk .... and pop my fishing rod almost went away with the fish .... its a great feeling when you see a fish a the end of your line....
Can anyone suggest a few places for fishing in Bangalore.....there were many though most of them have vanished .... so any place do let me know ...craving for fishing..... whats life without fishing .....Cheers

hmmmmmmm, not a pro but around Pune Chicken gut works very well, Most people fishing for cat use the liver for sure its got a good stench or chicken gut/intestine as its more easily procurable and most often free. Try it, it might work as good.

It would be realy nice to know if anyone has tried this tecnique. But soap is common and at times special bait in parts of US and Africa. The soaps with animal fat / lard are used as bait.
