It happened after all.

I was after mahseerken for a long time to take me to Bakhara Nangal for Mahseer fishing but some how our schedule never met, I finally landed at Delhi on 12th ken and me left for Bhakhra at 6am on 12th .

I have quite forgotten how beautiful the region is we reached the dam around 2Pm after a pleasant drive with me and ken chatting all the way and catching up although I knew Kenneth for a long time but never have gone fishing with him (Me being hooked to it only last 9 or so months) just imagine.
Reaching there we wasted no time and after climbing down to Nangal Hilton(Our lodge) we immediately hit the shores of this great reservoir,. Kenneth immediately proved why he is called mahseerken as he hooked a decent size one just before the evening and that was it for the day one.

We hit he bed pretty early to get up at 4 am next morning Kenneth was sure that as usual we would get a window of 45 min to 1 hour when the big ones chase chilwa but for our luck that never happened that day.

The boat guy arrived with the boat around 7 and we started trolling after one and half hour or so when I was wondering whether the luck would allow me to catch a mahseer or not on this trip. In five minutes I got a hit and there it was my first mahseer a small one but nevertheless a good fighter I almost landed it when it spit the hook on my face and went away. I could not believe it!! my first one and I could not even land it but then the encounter have made my mind even more firm to land another one. Ken decided to change his lure and when he started to reel in he got a hit and landed it after a healthy fight.

I had no further luck but the trip was a great one I am looking forward to it again as soon as possible. I hooked and fought my first mahseer the place was just out the world but most of all I got to catch up with a brother after a long time and that also on a fishing trip.

Delhi 19th April
I decided to hit a great little spot favorite of what they call “Delhi pump house gang”. I called none other then mahseerken again and he sure enough fixed it up for me. He could not land up finally (because of his laziness hahaha)
:twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
I left town with another friend of mine Andrew (Who actually is responsible for me getting hooked ) . We land up at the spot around 8.30 am and met a great guy called Babli a local and very helpful soul.

I wanted to try my new kolkata masala so I quickly ground baited and we started to make our rods as the ground bait would take couple of hours to be effective. We castedf our baits and the wait started for floats to dance. I was wondering about the ground bait as my float took a nose dive I pulled the line tight and my first one was hooked. After Bakhra I was very careful to land this one successfully.

Andrew decided to move a little distance away ( not completely trusting the ground baiting thing) and his dead line started to scream he was up beat but just after a min of fight we realize some thing was wrong., sure enough he had hooked a turtle (thanks to the turtle curse of ken who always manges to have a great date with them) .

Suddenly every thing was calm no bites at all we decided to take a break and Babli produced a great lunch of chicken curry and home made rotis followed up with ghar ki chaas(butter milk) wow!!! I had almost forgotten the taste of the thing

Ken called up to check and asked me to be relaxed the verdict was the bites would start again around 4 pm or so . I almost dozed off to sleep and then dot on 4.15 the float stated to dance again and this time in duration of 45 min I landed three decent size(Big according to Babli) Rahus. Andrew decided to spice the day up with his one rahu and one (surprisingly on atta) big balm.

We called up a day around 6Pm with me finishing up with another one

Total catch of the day
6Rahus average size of 2 to 2.5lb
And one balm 1.5 lb

Good show Rajat Da!

Ken Sahib struck gold once again. I dream of this place called Bhakra, hopefully someday I'll cross the border and join you guys for some spinning and trolling there.

So the deep diving shad rap was succesful, some questions though. How can you cast them, and most other plugs, at a suficient distance when spinning from the shore? Or do you just use them for trolling? From my experience I find that the only plugs that are heavy enough for that are rattlin raps and Rat-l-traps.

Once more congratulations on your trip!

Dear Dherri
Jokes apart there is a kind of understanding among all of us that we would not or can not disclose the places where some other fellow angler have taken us . Even if I was in Delhi i would check with Mahseerken of one of other delhi boys before even i can take you there. It is nothing but to keep the places safe for us to fish why don't you get in touch with mahseerken or V prashant these guys will be happy to take you along once they know you also post a general introduction in the introduction in forums index so that other anglers from your locality can guide you in various manner
cheers bro :D :D

Thanks Rajat,
I get the picture now. A location disclosed can easily be abused for commercial purposes and we need secured areas for serious and passionate anglers.
I ll get in touch with the Delhi gang and see if they can tag me along....I am passionate about fishing but need to learn from the scratch.

Thanks Again

Best
