Fishing in Goa makes for perfect bone fishing !
Catching a huge fish can provide quite a thrill and fishing trips are growing in popularity in Goa. Fishing is best in the early morning and late afternoon, and from mid October to mid December in Goa. John’s Boat Tours in Candolim runs fishing trips for 795 rupees ($20) on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Goa-Fishing, based in Dona Paula, is operated by a licensed commercial/sports fisherman and provides a range of more expensive trips for serious fishers. These include fishing on the shore, full day deep sea fishing expeditions, and spear fishing off the reefs of Grand Island and Bat Island. Frequently caught fish includes variety of Red Snappers, Groupers, Crevalle, Barramundi, Threadfin Salmons, Barracudas, King Mackerels, Wahoo, Dorado(dolphin fish), Tuna, Bonitos, Perch, Reef Cod, Croakers, Trevally to name a few. For conservation; in addition to saving our depletion of fish population, we do encourage ‘catch and release’. The rule of thumb is, the deeper the water, the bigger the fish. You never know when or where a big fish will strike. We fish off west coast of Goa, approx. 40- 60kms offshore. Depth range 160-260ft. hi speed trolling, use of GPS, fish finder depth sounder, compass covering lots of ground to locate fish. Once located, fishing is done at steady trolling speed. Techniques range from trolling artificial lure, natural baits, also trolling with down riggers Experience the thrill and excitement of trolling lures through a Mackerel and Tuna feeding frenzy. Spinning and drift fishing done with lures, poppers, natural baits and live baits for pelagic game fish such as king Fish, Wahoo, Cobia, Sail Fish, Dorado, Jacks, Tuna and Barracuda. This is a full day trip, snack, lunch, beer and other refreshments is included, to make it the most enjoyable day on water. Fishing or Angling in Goa is a great experience. It is a great opportunity among anglers to practice their favorite sports in the tropical surroundings of Goa. Angling often reminds one of Hemmingway's Old man who spent days in the sea to catch the marlin and bring his prized catch to the land wanting to reestablish the fact among his fellow fishermen of the strength and skill Santiago still had in him to fight back. Angling is a sport, which does kindle in one the sense of worth, and triumph when the angler catches the best fishes and takes them back to the land to show off to his fellow mates and together enjoys the catch. The Agonda beach is one of the best spots for sea angling in Goa. Soormai, salmon and mullet are amongst the catches.
