Beautiful fish congrats.. however, the handling of the fish is not correct if it was catch and release..

Congrats on the catch. Please update on the lures used!

Secondly, you missed the point Santosh was making. Fish handling in India needs to be taught by us to people who handle fish to ensure better fish survival.

I am not a expert at this but putting fingers inside the fish gills, will greatly reduce its chance of survival

Catch and release as told to me by uncle who was an FDO in the Sunder Bans :

Avoid using landing nets / gunny bags if possible. .

Do not use a gaff!

Keep hands wet. This helps prevent removal of the fish’s natural protective mucous layer, and reduces the chance of subsequent infections in the fish’s skin.

Minimize handling, particularly of the gills and soft underbelly. Gently prevent the fish from battering itself on surrounding hard surfaces. Place the fish on an old piece of foam and place a wet rag over the fish’s eye.
Return the fish to the water headfirst. In most cases, it is best to point the fish’s head straight down and allow the fish to plunge down into the water

Hi Ashok.

Just to give you an update, the lures used were Mepps no. 4 (gold) and rapala's jointed. The rapala lure was fire tiger in colour.

Very well said. Try using barbless hooks, this makes "playing" the game in the difficulty level "Professional".

Ali Bhai,
Have only seen it's pics and videos.
Yet to catch one. So can not comment on the fight. Read some place that a 20 lbs fish hooked on your line, on its first run downstream feels like a 50 lbs one. Hell of a fighter, I am sure.
Planning a trip in April, if time permits. Hope some one from IA is going on a fishing trip to the Himalayas. Would surely like to join up. [smilie=happy.gif]
Regards,
Tight lines.
