pawana is leased to a body of commercial fishermen for abot rs 32 lakhs for a year this year. and is anextremely large water body to fish one off .. its important to locate the fish or your day trip may be fruitless.
im not saying this to dissuade you, but to fish there would be at your own risk as the commercial fishermen (bhoi tribe) can get violent.. plus being a large body of water , its not easy to loccate fish activity... at this time of year when it is predominantly hot, the best fish activity times are pre dawn and dawn till 9 -10 am and a window again from 4pm to 7pm most places , this considering other aspects of weather conditions are in place.
bottom line is that if you want to seriously fish places, dont begin with high expectations, but by recceing places and keeping record of them in a log .. over a period of timethings will slowly beging to fall into place... plus you will beging to protect the places and will become contientious in how you fish... in short you will value our natural resources .
all th best to you.. a tip for you ..use google earth to learn about the water bodies around you ...and follow threads on the forum .. they will give insight to where to fish and when.. lastly when things begin to work out.. treat our resources with due care..
again all the best.
I am shutting this thread because my cousin just returned from Pawana and he will be taking me there soon. Apparently there are some great spots where one can fish and he landed a Calbose and some nice carp.
Good eatin too
we enjoyed them. No Fishing mafia or fishermen or anything - just tell them you are catch and release fishermen - give them a few bucks, and tell them to go have a drink or something - thats what he did when one curious local wandered up and poked around in the fishing bag...
Says he also hit something pretty big but it bent the hook and got away ...
Maybe Loch Ness Monster is there too ...
