Just arrived in south Goa. I spent two days looking around and getting a feel for some spots to try.
I prefer rock fishing deep water. Picked a spot for a sunset fish just after high tide. I wasnt very confident as water didnt look as fishy as spots i usually fish at home. Tried a few surface lures, popper and stickbaits with no success. Put on my old faithful halco max redhead (sinking) and first cast, got smashed by a 41cm Red snapper(jack). Couldnt explain the surprise and joy of catchinv my first fish in this great country. And my first attempt!
If anyone out there is keen for some company on fishing trips let me know!!

@scully

Congratulations on your success! It is not easy going to a new location and finding productive places to fish.

I usually troll with the Halco Max (because of its shape and weight) so it was interesting that you use it for spinning .... anyhow, it is a good lure.

Good luck for the future and let us have more reports, with pictures if possible.

@scully

Several senior posters have congratulated you and also requested pictures over the last two weeks.
It is not as if anyone doubts that you caught any fish, rather it adds to the narrative!

It would be good manners if you could acknowledge their posts.

Hi ., no problem. I have been without internet for a while.
The monsoon seems to have arrived. Its amazing how the ocean changes so quickly. Does anyone bother fishing the coast at this time. Do the fish still bite with the poor visibility and stirred up water.
I am thinking it is time to try the rivers, though the river mouths seem to be very heavily netted.
I have heard fishing is better in the middle of the night, maybe full moon?
Any advice greatly appreciated.
Just trying to post picture now
Thanks guys!
Scully

yes, From the rock if you can brave the waves.
In the surf it is almost impossible at this time of the year, because the waves are rough and full of sand.
I don't know about Goa, but at least in the southern India there is not much of bait movement during this time.

I dont fish much with lures in murky waters. You could try bait fishing, but of the water is too dirty from storms, its better to wait till it clears up. Yeah try rivers and back bays, you may have better luck.
