Hi Guys,

glad to find this forum!

I got hooked to fishing during my stay at erstwhile Enron's Dabhol Power Plant. Used to do fishing off the jetty (some 1.5 km offshore) with just fishing lines and shrimps / minnows as baits (in Gauti style :wink: ). Whenever I got fish hooked, all I used to do was haul it up as soon as possible, not a very skilful, I agree :oops: and lost quite a number of fish that way. My best catch was a 4.5 Kg Rawas and by Jove! it tasted wonderful with beer :D

Gosh, I didn't even know how to pose with a fish!! :oops:

But I have moved to Mumbai and been here for about three years now and almost forgot the thrills of fishing till recently when my GF gifted me a fishing rod. Boy, I am excited at the prospect of getting back at it!!!

So one more newbie at this wonderful forum and require all the help to learn this gentlemen’s sport :wink:
Looking for places to angle in and around Mumbai plus tips / tricks of the trade

Cheers

Anindya

Welcome to the forum


I know, that's why first thing I did was to grab the rod and kept it at safe place out of her reach :D :D

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Barramundi!!! to speak the truth, though I'm a bong, I don't know a fish from a FISH :oops: One guy told me it was Rawas

Thank You Guys for the welcome!!

This Saturday, manage to visit Powai lake, could see someone with a rod on the boat at the middle of the lake around 6 - 6:30 pm. Just sat beside few guys fishing with handlines near the road.

My first experiance with rod was quite disaster as I do not know much about using the rod or tackle setup or casting :(
Managed to get just small a tug on the line, fished out a cloth from the bottom :oops: , lost a hook and sinker but NO FISH. Thats when I realised I need bigtime help!!!

Guys please bail me out; can I join some of you in Mumbai for next weekend (Sat /Sun) and I promise I won't pester....OK may be just a little bit :-)

Cheers

Many Thanks Saiki, BoP, Apoo & Madhur!

Ali Bhai true to his fame was prompt & gracious to consider my request.

This forum is a mine of information, though I confess, much of it right now is going two feet above my head :? :lol:

But seriously guys, when do you get time to work?

This is madness, and I'm getting lured to it like a gnat moving toward light, soon will be hooked :wink:

Cheers
