Some of our members from Powai visited Kaveri in Manglore and one of them, the master angler, Jawed Ansari caught one monster which turn out to be a almost world record fish. Here are some photographs of the Mahseer of 103 lbs and some other fishes. As recited by Jawed, the fight was an epic story and will be told on some later date.
The place was head of the Raina Beach. The rod was G-Lumis with Abu morum reel and line used was 50 lb mono.
These are the catches which keep the blood pumping in our vains when we cast our lines. Lets admire it guys.

One more thing. As this topic will be widely watched I take this as and opportunity to announce that during the last committee meeting of MSAA, it was decided to honor Mr. Bopanna Pattada for the fine work he is doing for the cause of Angling and I am happy to announce VIP membership of Powai to Mr. Pattada and his family. Bops, kindly pm me your address so as I can send you the VIP card. Hence forth you are free to fish in Powai, whenever you wish.

That fish is big. Congrats - to reach that big this fish must have had quite a life..

Good fishing Bops - tell.

Greetings Ali,
The drawings I do require a great deal of time and attention to detail.Unfortunately I feel that I could not do justice to this magnificent mahseer with these particular photograph's ,as they lack slightly in detail on the captures face, and also to a lesser degree on the fish itself.
If you do have any more pictures of this fish, then please feel free to attach them to me via My email address.
Thank you for your request....Macca

The first is a superb specimen of Barbus Tor Mussullah, and the other three are Barbus Tor Kudhree.

Many congratulations to the angler. Can I go off topic for a second to say that I personally feel a lot of the big mahseer have been killed off thanks to putting the frigging nylon rope through their gills. Can someone there please educate those guides....Might be less damaging to put a gaff through the bottom lip as they do to Tarpon!

Anyway congrats boss, that a beast, how long did it fight.

I totally disagree about the use of a stringer as long as it is made from soft rope and is of sufficient length to get the fish out into the flow.
I would say that returning a fish straight away after a long fight is far more likely to result in its death than by putting it on a stringer for a short while in order to let it fully recover its strength - a weak fish is crocodile fodder.
The stringer doesn't actually go through the gill rakers - which would do damage - but sits in the groove in the bone in front of the rakers. A gaff would be far worse as the damage caused by it would more than likely result in an infection in the open wound.
Stringers made from rough nylon do cause damage by rubbing, as do ones made from very thin rope, and every time I'm on the Cauvery it is something that i bring up with the management, that the ghillies should be provided with the correct type of stringer - i always take my own and usually end up leaving one with my ghillie when i return home so at least he has the right one - unless he sells it of course!

Congratulations to Jawed on a fantastic fish which appears in great condition. How was it weighed?

I'm a bit confused as to where it was caught - this looks like Galibore to me, on the beach just outside camp. Where is Mangalore?

I have to agree with what Gary says above regarding stringers. They are essential to the welfare of the mahseer for recovery and when used correctly with the soft type of cord (preferably not like the rope in the picture) cause no harm.
