Hello Guys,

caught this fish from a small feeder river of ganges, weighing 4 Lbs
used raw oyster as bait... :-)
local fishermen call these toothy bugger "Boaal" or "Boal"

@makarand...thanks mate

guess this is my first cat... :P yahoooooooooooooooooo
used light spinning rod 6 ft of 20-75 gms cast weight with a small 3000 series reel, 10 lbs strength line...
while the first run i didn't think it to be a cat...
stopped after 20 mts odd...fight was good but not outstanding
took 8-9 minutes...
one scary bugger...had millions of teeth, released immediately after taking the pics...

regards
saiki

That's a Mulley. They fight well. And taste even better as pakoras washed down with some beer.

Hi Saiki,

That's a Bowal in bengali, i don't know wat it is called in english.......

That's a great fish.........

Out here in assam they are available in large number in the rivers,i have caught lots of them in bramaputra river. This fish can grow very large. One of my brother caught one which was 60lbs, couple of years back. I myself have caught one which was 25lbs.

Hope u land a big one too....

Bye
Take care
Dev
