Hi , i am a 24 year old I.T engineer from Alleppey (born and brought up).

I love fishing but i am total noob at using actual tackle , i have only used the traditional hook and wire and stick :P

But recently i got a present from a friend who thought since i lived in the backwaters i could fish and gave me a complete set as a present.

Upon ripping it open (the present ) and googling i found out that my friend (who is also a complete noob) gifted me some expensive tackle that is used for heavy salt water fishing..(Abu Garcia - Advant power 80 reel, a Abu Garcia - Jigg start 5.5 Rod and some high quality line and a couple of spinners and floats and other lures..

I Looking forward to members and hope you guys offer me your wisdom and guidance to become a decent angler and make the best use of my tackle.

Hi,

Welcome to the forum. The jigging rod may not be of much use for freshwater or shore saltwater fishing. It is basically meant for jigging from a boat or possibly a pier or bridge.The reel can be used if you couple it up with a medium rod. All the very best.
Regards
cavalier

Hi friend,
I am just curious to know what fish species live in allepey. I spent an entire day angling here. I couldn't catch a single fish.
One thing I found out was the bed was weedy snapping my line every time I casted.
Can you provide me with some local Intel about the fishes here so that I can select the right bait and casting technique?
