The floating Magic

Floating feeder success story

Babloo bhai few days ago decided to try a new rig a floating feeder and while every one were catching fish I mean every one. I was just reading the reports or hearing them (only thing I could do with my broken hand apart from breaking it again in frustration) Babloo bhai was on the other hand hitting success after success on his rig.(again I was suppose to do this report early but could not). By the time I write this his total catch had already added to

Two catla’s 14 and 12 Lb (only one pic available)
One Rahu 8 Lb

One big one missed which emptied his reel in seconds with its first run .


This Sunday I decided to join him (after a very long time) and decide to try his master rig. I also decided to add a new thing which was to anchor it with a heavy weight to make it floating but not flowing .

We casted out rigs out in around 1 pm and also put a rod each with ground feeder and a goli . Powai was at his worst with no activity no jumps only a sullen silence. I was sulking by end of two hour with literally no bites. I was getting frustrated beyond any thing only Babloo bhai kept saying “any time Rajat bhaiya just keep it cool if nothing works this one will” If baloo bhai says some thing like that I always listen but it was almost a border case.

I had almost given up and started to pack up when Baloo bhai pointed out there was some activity near the floater and I saw it dip one or two times and then BANG the Rahu jumped and the reel screeched . It was a success the fish was hooked .

I let the reel run for some time just enjoying the sound of it then fought the fish leisurely not wanting to end the experience my first fish after a really long time with the help of Babloo bhai netting it. We landed a beauty of 10Lb Rahu.

Mani mate, I am done with powai fishing. I firmly believe Powai Fishes hate me. The buggers will give me a bite as soon as I answer my ph, when I am looking somewhere else, when I go to pee... the list is long. I never get a bite when I am looking at the float.. :cry: :cry: .. But soon I will take my revenge.. :evil: :evil:

Hi Rajat,

Glad to hear you guys are getting some of those elusive powai catla :D

Please pass on my congratultions and regards to Babloo bhai. It sounds like he has got the right formula going!

Santosh, you need to trick those wily fish by just pretending to ignore them 8) i've managed it before when the going's tough by turning around for a pee. usually the bite will come at this moment :D just have one hand free to make the strike and you will be in!! :D thinking about it tho it might be easier to pretend to send an sms...... but just remember this won't have the same power as the aforementioned technique :wink:

All the best chaps,

Scott

Good ones guys!

Would love to be in Mumbai to fish in Powai....I am jinxed to travel to Mumbai in the monsoons as I have been caught out in the rains twice... once when Mumbai got flooded.. my taxi broke down near Mahim and I and a collegue had to walk all the way from Mahim to Domestic airport in the water for 3 hours. And the next time got stuck in a Juhu hotel for 2 days as the airport was flooded.
