It has been almost seven months that I have started to visit Powai lake for angling . I caught many fishes there in fact some variety small singhi, talapia, the mangur but never a decent size carp. I managed some undersize mirgal and khavali also.Ali kept on saying you would get a big one soon now. We did all the tricks to get one too. I tried different ground bait, some of Ali’s innovative rigs some of them were damn successful but never managed a good size fish. I had started to wonder whether this year I would manage to catch one at all.

Day before yesterday I decided to take my wife Geeta to show the lake and specially Ali’s machan it was a regular show off kinda visit but to go to Powai and not take you’re your rod along is not done so I took my favorite Javis walker along. We reached the lake and Geeta was really very impressed and happy I was too.

I decided to fish for awhile and while Geeta looking on and started to get interested with the bite on the float “bam” I got a tremendous jerk on the rod trying to set the hook on a bite and the reel screeched. I was really in seventh heaven so finally With Geeta helping me with the landing net I landed my first big carp a beauty of 7.3 pound Mirgal after a good 20 min fight here are some picture (Taken at home though as I was not carrying my camera and the phone camera got jinxed the other day in rain)

Hi Rajat,

That's a nice looking carp you have there. Hoping to catch one myself this weekend.

I love the picture of the croc in the lake and the concrete jungle in the background. Great pic!

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.
