Finally ,after nearly 3 months , ı`m going to go fishing :D. Like always , this trip is also scheduled to be in konkan. Trying to target murrels this time . But im a saltie and have no clue about freshwater fishing :?: .The closest I`v been to fresh water fishing is in estuaries . Although I`v heard that cockroaches work good for murrels , i don`t know if its true. The folks there use live prawns as bait but they don`t seem to be effective. The trip is scheduled on 28th august. Will be taking my trusty cardinal 106 reel and a light rod. Best answer receives a fish in his e-mail inbox :P .

Hi Anglernick, all the best for 28th August :lol: .

As you know Murrel is a predator fish. Whatever it predicts as a prey it attacks. I don't know about cockroach, but experienced anglers use artificial lures like frog, spinner bait, etc. 8) .

Anglernick......I said spinnerbait not spinner. Second thing regarding size of the frogs, generally available 2 different size and spinnerbait comes with generally one size. Go with any size ........but in frog your casting is important. You should twitch the line in such a way that the predator will feel uhh...as if a frog is hopping on the surface of water.

Happy fishing.... :lol:

Spinner bait are like spinners but with only a hook without the lure right ? As for the frogs , I think the stop and retrieve should work. What do you say?

1. Spinners - Size 4 & 5.
2. Spinner Bait.
3. Top water frogs.

If these don't work, I'm not sure what will. :)

For live bait, frogs are the best bet for Murrel.
