Greetings to all members.

My name is Ashwyn, based in Mumbai. While I have been fishing for the last 15 years (principally Mahasher fishing in Kumaon and Garwhal Hills and lake fishing), I have very limited experience in sea fishing. Very keen to start sea fishing in Mumbai. Would welcome any suggestion on locations in Mumbai to get started, recently got a Shakerspear surf caster from a recent trip to Singapore and itching to try it out.

Welcome aboard Ashwyn,

I doubt whether there is any surf Fishing around Mumbai as the water is too polluted.

Regards,

Arun

Hi Bobby,

What you say is very true, but not everyone here in Mumbai is same. Guys are catching fish at the so called traditional places, but what i have seen and experienced at these spots is enough for me to stay away. For some fishing is not only about fish, for me the location is as much important.

The feeling of being alone, spending the night on a untouched beach, wildlife, the list is fairly long ... I don’t think one would get to experience all this in amchi Mumbai.

Santosh

Thanks for the replies (and to Bobby and Santosh). Sport fishing is what you make of it. For me, the whine of the reel under a hard run by a strong fish (at times, which makes the lubricating oil in the reel to start smoking), the rod bending under the weight, the feeling that your arms are going to pulled out of your body, and finally, laying your eyes on the fish when you've earned it thorugh a hard and skillful fight, is just about the most addictive thing I have ever come across. Thats what rocks my boat (and of course, the location really makes a big difference to the overall experience)

Could I just throw one more question to you guys: Most of my fishing has been on plugs and spoons and thats what I intend using for the sea as well (planning on trying a couple of spinners and plugs which have always worked on Mahasher). Is this a good idea or given the sediments and poor visibility in the sea around Mumbai, I am better off using dead/live bait. If bait it is, which bait fish is popular with you guys.

And could anyone give me diretions to a shop/place in Mumbai where I can get some lures (the ones with me have only been tried in fresh water and might be small for sea fishing).

On a related note, I was in Andaman Islands last December and hooked a whopper of a GT while popping off No.7 beach at Havelock, and thats when I went rabid about sea fishing (I havent been able to figure out how to imbed the image in this post, will upload the picture on a public site and post the link here instead). Does popping as a technique work in the seas of Mumbai? And if it does, where can I get the necessary lures?
