Hello everyone,

Fishing in south Mumbai Yuck! Polluted water, unsafe, difficult terrain, no good spots.......

Well, if this is what u r thinking then u r someone with fancy fishing gadgets and treat skilled fishing as a picnic where everything needs to be neat and tidy so u could fish.

I'd like to believe that fishing requires skills, patience and the heart to accept the difficulty in. All the fishing gadgets in the world will not get u anywhere near a catch, let alone a good one.

Lived in Mumbai for a long time and i can tell u that its not bad if you know the tricks and the heart to go beyond ones comfort zone. Please ask me where to fish what you can catch.

Hi swaraj I stay at colaba. Can you please tell where all we can fish in south Mumbai and bait recommendations as well. I have fished at least 10 sessions in the his area catching nothing other than catfish, singada.
Regards.

hi bobby, good to hear mullet and pomfret are also caught here. must have been using the wrong technique. been using prawns as bait with a normal 15-20gm lead weight on a size 6-7 hook and fishing the bottom 3-4 m waters near colaba defence area, sassoon dock. been catching singada without fail though. whats the trick for mullets and pomfret? do you have to go offshore/ boat?
regards

Pomfrets are usually found in deeper waters. Never heard of them being caught from the shore.

Do correct me if I'm wrong

Pomfret are costal fish, certainly not what you would call deep water species, I have never caught Pomfret with hook but a close friend of mine who used to fish in Colaba used to catch them sometimes.

I believe they used to catch them with atta, Pomfret feed on zooplankton and jellyfish, so catching them on atta is not a common thing, more of a fluke.

In Colaba they used to catch Mullets on krill (Marathi - zavla), I have always caught mullet with bloodworm, they will take atta too.
