Fishing in Mumbai after an decade+

After discovering this forum I realized that fishing around Mumbai is still possible, and some location from Ali Bhai gave me some confidence on catching fishes around Mumbai.

Decided to do the same this week went to Marve with my wife. Had nothing to use as a bait, then decided to use Pav(bread) as a bait.

My wife was all excited to catch one I casted the line and handed over to her. She pulled it thinking of an result, however it was a plastic bag dragging the line. I casted it second time result was the same. :evil:
Then the third time she was expecting it to be some more plastic covers, however realized that the same was a Catfish. She was all :-) excited to land one on her own. However I was not that excited after scanning closely, as the cat has swallowed the hook. It took me more than 5 min to unhook the cat. We were in a decision to release all the catches, however I suggested to give it away to local as this one would have not survived.

Today decided to head to Manori with some prawns and Marcel as bait. I was with my friend Litesh a school time partner to catch fishes.

We reached Manori around 11.30 in the morning and it was an out going tide the rocs were visible decided to go onto one of the rock and cast. First half an hour there was no result then on my friends line there was some action, he landed an eel. It was first time thet we have caught an eel.
Then it was my turn the pull was amazing, I was expecting some thing good.
Well the result was same a bigger eel, unfortunately this bugger unhooked and slipped back to the Arabian see. Then again I got a bite which was converted to a catch another eel. Well one thing eel's are the slimy fish after the snakehead.

Well all in all a good day of fishing we were targeting some other species however landed these amazing ones.

Have met a local and he showed us some location where we can catch some big ones (Ravsa), however the tide has started to rise and it was not safe to head to that spot. So we decided to return back just to prepare to catch the big ravas.

Thanks every one. And yes Ali Bhai will land one of those beauties and catch some more species which are unexplored by me.

Today tried our luck at Washi creek and we landed three catfish all of decent size.

Any suggestion on where I can target some MJ’s in Mumbai. I really want to catch some of those Mj's.

Swapnilc I will PM you on the next outing.

Got my first fish on a rod and reel setup. Had plan to go with Sanju and test my lures ,unfortunately rains in Mumbai canceled our plans. Got a call from my friend in the morning to try fishing, in no time we were at patwadi. Was spinning the entire day tried various rocks but no luck then in the evening moved to marve then around 9pm started bait fishing as usual good strikes the first one was big as it dragged my line for couple of feet then unhooked itself, second cast hooked another was my best fish friend who never leaves me without one a catfish. STILL NO FISH ON LURE.

Sorry, the plan got cancelled. But the best season is approaching soon. I am getting some new lures and waiting to test them too.
And congrats for the Catfish. Your best friend is better than mine, The Eel. Always getting hooked and spoiling the rigs.

Last week Mayur, Ahmed(non IA member) and I decided to try our luck for some big game fish.

Spotted some Ravas and they did follow our lure but seems like they were already stuffed.

Tried bait fishing and caught some small ones. Here are the images.

All caught by Ahmed.

Mayur did get a big bite but could not be converted.


Regards,
Raj

I do hope that the baby Ravas was released.

I sincerely urge anglers to release these tiddlers at least.

Both the fishes were caught by Ahmed on a bait i did suggest him to release, however in both of the cases the hooks were deep inside the throat. It was point less releasing them.
Ravas was caught float fishing on a white prawns.
