Post subject:  Hi Raj from Mumbai.

Hello everyone,

This is Raj from Mumbai. I was scanning the WEB for some info on fishing in Mumbai and came across this amazing forum.

Fishing is in my genes as my great Grand father were fishermen. For better living they migrated to Mumbai some 8-9 decades ago and fishing was vanished.

For me fishing started during my early school days. I was lucky to have a big Talao(Lake) near my house in Kalina and different fishes. Infact Kolhu now known as BKC was not too far either with some monster fishes during monsoon. Unfortunately only concreet rules at all of these place now.

It never ended here, in Karalla my uncle’s pond there was a giant Murrel it was 1meeter+.Never knew the weight and some huge Mangoor they call it African Khari in karalla.

Have experienced some Salt River fishing during low tide in Karnataka. Where the biggest was around 2ft Ladyfish on white prawns.

But all of these seem to be faded from my life for some reason.

I want to live those moment again.

Have never tried shore fishing and this is on my agenda and this time with proper gears and not like old days tree stick and umbrella rods.

HI Raj,

welcome to IA. I too did a lot of fishing in Vakola / Kalina khadi. The place where BKC now stands held a lot of big fish. have caught lots of carp & murrel there. (including a couple of snakes which we kept as pets)

Syed, when did you leave AI colony ? I studied in AIMS. I liked the floods a lot, cos they always carried fish & crabs, which we could catch during our school recess.

regards,
Keyur
