Ten-Second Takeaway

Don’t have any plans made for the weekend yet? Go fishing on a beautiful farm, learn the basics of fishing and enjoy delicious meals cooked by the locals in Neral.

Catch ‘Em All, Or At Least Try

Organised by Blue Bulb, this fishing trip is the stuff our childhood dreams were made of. Have you had yearnings of going fishing by a serenic lake just like we saw on the American sitcoms and films? We sure did and now we have an opportunity. You can choose any day you like, and they’ll organise it for you.

Situated in the tiny village of Neral in the Raigad district of Maharashtra, approx 85 kilometers away from Mumbai by road, you’ll be hosted at an agro-farm – which is a two-hour drive from Mumbai. This agro-farm is a proper humongous functional farm which has a few huge ponds, where they breed all sorts of fishes, from prawns to carp {rohu} from the river nearby that flows through it.

What You Can Expect

A day full of lazing in the sun surrounded by lush greenery, a pond and buffaloes. You’ll be taught the basics of fishing, how to angle your rod, their habits and the kinds of fishes that are out there. Then after building up your appetite from the strenuous job of cashing a fish {if you do}, expect a lunch spread of the local fishes that were caught fresh in the morning by the locals working on the farm.

They also have buffaloes that you can ride on in the ponds {for the kids maybe?}. Apart from that, you’ll be assigned a guide and you can just explore the area, or catch a shade under the tree and read a book.

So, We’re Saying…

In the mood for some old good time whilst catching some fishes in a secluded beautiful green farm? This is the trip for you then. You can make it a group trip, a romantic getaway or even a family fun daycation – just a couple of hours from the city.
