Posted on: February 23, 2011

Fishing in Goa is one of the most sought after activities as it involves a lot of excitement and adventure being in the blue waters of the Arabian Sea under the clear blue sky.

Blessed with plenty of beaches, Goa is the ideal place to try out fishing. Imagine the pride and the winning smile on your face when you come back holding a couple of fishes and proclaiming it as your prized catch! Sounds like fun? You guessed it right. Angling sport is a great experience and definitely a de-stressor for your tired mind. Just head out with your friends or even alone with a fishing rod and some bait and just relax as wait for a curious fish to eat the bait.

Angling or fishing in Goa can be enjoyed at various spots like the Agonda beach, Vagator beach, Chapora River etc. There are also many estuaries in the state and one can even try it out in the rivers all along the Goa coast line. While angling in Goa one will come across many interesting varieties of fish. These include Soormai, Salmon, Mullet, Ladyfish or catfish, Rockfish, Stingray, Guitarfish, the local Barramundi and many more. The best time for angling is considered to be October to May.

Goa has a number of rivers where the angling sport can be enjoyed. Since these areas are low-lying the best fishing time would be at the top of the high tide or just before it. Here one often catches some Ladyfish or Catfish but some are lucky enough to get the local Barramundi at times.
