Hi Everybody,

Could anyone please suggest that which Rod ( below 6'6" ) and Reel would be best to catch Indian Monster carp - Katla or Rohu ? What would be the ideal Ground Bait Recipe in that case ? And more that we in Kolkata get it very common to see the anglers throwing their baits as far as possible from the bank, is it really necessary ?

Please suggest.

Dear All, I am Arnab Majumdar of South Kolkata. Fishing has been a serious hobby to me since I was in school. At that time ponds and lakes were in abandon. I used to seat for angling almost everyday after school. But soon while on college days, I found water bodies were getting filled up with debris giving birth to high-rises & multiplexes. And now at 40, I get only 2 to 3 spots in kolkata where we could practise fishing. Naturally these lakes are overcrowded, seats are almost closer to each other within 6 feet. More predators than preys. For a span of 7 to 8 years I had not the opportunity to go for angling due to some family mishaps. And now when I have decided to move up again I have come to know that earlier concept of Rods and Reels have changed while the western reels and rods are in practice for easier catching. But I don't have any idea of Right Carp Rods or Reels of Western model. Please do help.
It would be favourable for me if the rod is below 6.5 ft in length.

Welcome to the forum Arnab.
Contact Bops (IA Taqckle shop) and am sure you will be able to get hold of decent equipment.
Happy fishing.
