Hello friends.

Could you someone advice me about best timing and worst timing(to be avoided) for sea fishing? if possible area wise.

The Best time is when you are catching fishes, the worst time is when you are not catching themm :twisted: :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol: ..

On a serious note, this depends on what type of fishing you are doing..

Mansoon is the worst (Read suicidal) time to go trolling or spinning from the rocks but it is the best time for bait fishing..

Regards,

Ali.. :lol:

Do you think tides play an important role in fishing for Barramundi. They say Barramundi is caught best during start of low tide to high tide. Is it true?

No. There are loads of myths about the tide time and best fishing but the truth is that fish will feed at any state of the tide if the conditions are right for the venue.
For sand spit marks in estuaries, the fish are often feeding close in when the tide is moving and they will move out of range when there is a slack at high or low water. They're still perfectly catchable at these times if you can reach them though.

Thanks for clearing that up. Does this apply to river mouths too. I have seen people fish on river mouths when the low tide is in process. I asked them the reason they say the river brings loads of prawns and small fishes into the sea during low tide and that's the reason its the best time to catch big fish in river mouths.

River mouths would be even more affected by tidal movements, because of mixing of water and extending/reducing feeding grounds.

Phases of the moon influence feeding, but that is because the moon directly influences the tide.

Fish also tend to behave differently in different locality.

So you have seasons, tides, terrain, temperature and time of the day, water colour, the type of fishing you intend to do, species you target. Don’t forget using the correct bait can make all the difference as is using the right tackle.

Eventually there is no fixed rule you will learn with experience, trial and error, that is why they have fishing guides and even topnotch anglers use fishing guides in a locale they are not familiar with because it takes some time to learn.

Generally speaking however, fishing tends to be better a few days before and after the full moon and no moon. Fishing at dawn and dusk tend to be more productive than mid day, fishing at night can be very productive.

And to sum it up, as Ali said, the best time is when they are on the bite.

I find saltwater fishing is at its best during late September to December & from April to May.

Lure colour or correct bait also makes a difference as rightly mentioned by Bobby. Lot of other factors are to be considered depending on the tide, water colour, and location, type of fishing (spinning with surface or deep diving lures).

Based on what I have experienced, dull colours work best on the incoming tide & bright ones when is tide is going out.

Santosh

I agree with the water color. I feel water color and water condition is important for fishing on reefs. Sometimes muddy type of water might contain organisms which small fish consume and when there is small fish, big fish might come too.

The pups swim away, I had a friend who caught a shark last year in, when the fish was gaffed and landed she was quite dead, they then noticed movement in her stomach, they cut her open and they saw that all her pups were alive, which they picked out of her and released, they all swam away like nothing had happened.
