Post subject:  Permit

I was visiting Callengute in Goa (I wouldn't want to stay there) yesterday and when I popped into the fish market, there was someone with half a dozen Permit (Snub nosed trevelly) of about 3kg's each.

Now these are a bit of a prime sporting fish so it was a shame to see them in the market but it raises the question: Is there anywhere on the west coast of India where these fish can be targeted deliberatly ?

They eat shrimps and crabs so they won't be falling to the usual barrabundi/salmon tactics - maybe I need to get my fly rod out and start thrashing the air with a shrimp fly.....

What species of fish can one expect to catch from the shore in India? I have seen or heard of GT, Barramundi, Barracuda, Rays, Mangrove Jacks etc being caught.

It would be great if you salties can list some more..... along with the baits they take.

It is a huge task Bops and such a job must be done properly, not haphazard.

This is something for a book or should I ask, is this something for the book?

The best way to approach this is to get a local book about fish species, either for commercial exporters or from a local Marine Biologist or an Aquarium Director.

Ok let's keep it to bigger fish that are worth catching like GT, Barra etc. I just want to know what to expect from shore fishing.

When lure fishing, you can add Flathead, Indian Salmon (AKA White Salmon) and Grouper (Called "Cod" by the Aussies) to your list of usual suspects.
With bait, there are guitar fish, Maray eels (bitey little swines), any number of sharks and rays, several Lucjanid species, Whiting (the Aussie kind, not the European ones and lots of odities.
