I have just meet up with Dr Ashwath and Dr Jagdish and spoke on various points.

Earlier i had spoken with bops and now clear a few points.

They want us to form The lalbagh angling club, this will be under the auspious of the Dept. of horticulture. They will arrange to get all the clearences from the Karnatak Government. Few points we dicussed were the rules and regulations of the club etc etc. maybe a few of u could help me with this.

The felt that an entry fee of rs. 2000/- and daily fishing charges of rs. 150 and children under 15 free and above 17 to 21 rs.50. non members be charged rs. 300, will be okay.

brought up the point of CUPA and they said that they will handle the matter. we should have no problem with them.

The fees will be handled by them and as such we get to maintain part of the tank removal of plastics etc. I told them that we should ban the bringing of plastics and bottles in to the gardens.

dr. tells me that the source of water for the tank is not by ground water etc but rainfed and the `gully` water. this is treated with their green water plant. we should request them to put a part of this water into the tank.

dr. has permitted us to fish on thursday, to check the potential of the tank, after 10am. So, those of you are interested please reply on the indianangler. owen, i shall arrange a trip on sunday for serious anglers like u.

shall dicuss more in person.

That would be great.Don't think the military guys(MEG) would let it happen though.

Hey Pran, I think if you have to get in touch with some big shot in the Army and get him hooked on.. After that u cna make inroads into the Military base...

I fish at Fort William, which is also a military base and we have managed to get some Colonels and Brigadiers involved which have made things smooth for us... Yes, security would be an issue but u have to work around things like that..

:lol:

The fish in ulsoor lake could be contaminated for all we know.Have seen two huge lines letting in rainwater to one portion of the lake.Not sure if the sewers open into the lake but then the lake sure does smell like it.

Sorry Bops the pix are still in my cam, even Shreekanth got off a few.
We had 7 fish in an hours fishing, 4 of which were beautiful common carp of between 3/4 Kg and 2 Kgs and 3 tilapias.
Jeez there are millions of tilapias in the lake, one of them jumped into the landing net while we were landing a carp :lol:
They certainly need to net the lake and remove the tilapia's or they will eat everything out of house and home.
Guys, please don't go fishing there till the angling club is properly formed even with permission, as the Jain's will make your life miserable and you will wish that you never went anywhere near the place.
The lake has great potential, but i very much doubt whether there are any really big fish in there.
I could be wrong :wink:

Food for thought :idea:

Gav there are literally millions of tilapia's in the lake. Looking from the top, i thought they were weed beds, as we approached them we realized they were fish and they were moving. Can't eat that many of them matey, it would require an army to clean that lot out. :?

Us Bongs love fish, mate !! :lol: :lol:

But seriously, net the tank and take out the tilapias and u can give them to some charitable institution, to feed the poor.. And at the same time, we can also get to know the types of fish in the tank and how big they are...

Alternatively, tilapia fishing is mitey good entertainment for the kiddos.. A small set-up and tilapia fishing will get them youngsters hooked on to the sport in no time... And the tilapias being such voracious and hungry buggers, am sure the juniors would have a great time !! :wink:

Hi Gav,

I loved the idea about giving the fish to the needy. Married to a good RC so the charity bit has rubbed off on the good fish demolishing BONG!!

I know of a school close to where I live, run by the nuns, who feed a 1000 poor kids at lunch.Gave them many pumpkins produced at our farm and they blessed me till I drove out.

Why not get the more privileged kids to learn to fish and pass on the catch to the less priliveged kids for them to eat.

I offer to teach the kids as I have the time.

What do you think of this Owen??

No nets but over time the job will be done.

Sandeep

Not my park and not my lake matey's, the decision has to be taken by the park authorities, and you can bet that they would rather sell the fish than give them away to charity. :evil:

Pran , I lived next to ulsoor lake, grew up there, learnt pole fishing...fell into it, learnt to row boats.Great memories.
The lake was desilted and made anew in 2003-4.better regulated, no sewage.Many crores were spent on it.
To the best of my knowledge, fish were reintroduced.More than that I dont know.
MEG- its not Pokharan nuclar testing grounds! Just a place where the Army engineers practice and teach watermanship.You want spy pics, tell them you'll get it off Google earth!
I dont thnk a 100 anglers could cause them any grief on a daily fishing permit basis.
I havent the slightest idea who handles the lake.Maybe the bangalore gang could confirm with the good Dr in the horticultural dept, use the Lal Bagh lake as a precedent and go for it?
Keep on doin it guys!!
Best

The lake is on contract dude's. That means it is netted when the fish are the right size. Anyone wanting to fish there has to deal with the contractors. Same goes for almost every lake in the Bangalore vacinity.

This is why the Lalbagh lake will be a real boon to Bangalore anglers.
Do note, that the s**t is hitting the celing on this by environmental groups, even bird watching (the feathered kind for your info Gav) is being targeted. :lol:
So we all have our fingers and everything else crossed.
Meanwhile the park authorities seem pretty detirmined to go ahead, but whether they will be resiliant enough when faced with legal action, has to be seen.

Please contact Bobby, the Lalbagh authorities are looking for suckers to clean them out. I think netting would be a better solution.
Or just go to the waters edge and say "Come fishy" and they will follow you home. :lol:
Jokes aside guys, i have never seen so many Tilapia at one place in my life.

Owen

Not too sure about how clean the waters are Asif, the waters that enter the lake are from a sewage treatment plant and Bobbee and i were concerned to see some tilapia doing the back stroke in the adjoining waters of this lake that looked pretty crappy to me.
Really need to do some tests on the waters and those fish before anyone tries eating them. :cry:
Hey where's Fred and Bobby ?

Hi Owen,

I am here, have been a touch busy with work. Dont know what has happened to Fred. Last thing I had asked him to re-confirm the weight of a fish :lol: and I was waiting for him to get back. :lol:

Its Chinese New Year and we have a long weekend. The wife got me a couple of great gifts yesterday.

1) Leatherman Blaster
2) Swiss Knife (Swiss Champ) I had lost my knife night fishing on a beach on my last trip to India. This one's better that the last.

She also bought me a nice reel for Christmas still waiting for it to get here.

I am smiling pretty.

Regards,

Bobby

As anticipated the so called Bird Lovers have criticised the move to start fishing at lalbagh. Here is a newspaper excerpt.

All you ichthyologists out there, please come out with scientific back up to our endangendered mob in Bangalore to prove that C&R is NOT harmful and fishing will not effect bird life...

Asif,

It's very hard to teach logic to the illogical.

Somone needs to write an article for the papers in retort.

The Pros to angling (as opposed to the cons)

Don't really blame them actually though I hate their holier than thou attitude.

But as long as there are fishermen who leave line, leaders and old hooks at the lake they have a point.

Leave no trace!!
