Hadn't been on a good trip so we were anxious to come up with something good.Reached the dam around 9.30 am and ground baited the area. While we were waiting for the ground bait to take effect I noticed fish feeding in the water near the margins. This led me to casting a light rod with out any weight into that spot and wallah I managed to land a good grass carp ( Aprox 1.5 Kg) and then the fish kept pouring in.This Led Mobin, Rohail, Kamran and Denis all to try the same and we started landing in grass carps like crazy.Also managed to catch a few grass carps on worms/ bait on long casts with weights.The top score for number of fish caught was for Kamran 19 and the biggest Grass caught was by MObin ( 4 Kg). Rohail and myself also managed to catch a few in the range of 2-3 kgs.All rahu caught were small between the 0.5-0.75 kg Mark

P.S As i was taking the pics no one bothered to take a PIC of the true pro angler.:P

Shaphan! That is unfortunate that we forget you, but as you know we were very busy that day, next time we will post a group photo and will also include you in it. ;)
Few things I would like to add;
It was a well planed trip and credit goes to Shaphan; we went their one week earlier for scouting and choose a sandy water bed area after carefully measuring the water level which was about 8 to 15 feet.
We used about 6 different flavors of baits all worked but the most successful was a very rare substance called “AATA”
We found that grass carp is a great game fish and it fight almost like Mahaseer. It was our second Grass carp experience; the first one was in a Pond in Peshawar where the fish was not more than 1 to 2 kg and the size of the pond was just 2 acres; landing fish wasn’t that tough their, but here on open lake it was really a challenge and we enjoyed every moment of it.

I will remember this trip for a long time
Mobeen
