Hi all,

Hope you are all fine.

Last week Chavie and me planned a short visit to the dam as the water level was increasing a little bit due to the monsoon rains .

The water level was around 6 ft higher than our last visit , but the water is murky. Can't see any serious fish action ':('

So we took our gear and reached the spot. We had casted for some time and no luck.

It was decided between us that will leave the place as its of no use due to the water colour.

I had tried few more time and suddenly there was a strike and I had caught this common carp':-)'

After that there was little bit of murrel action.I had casted to the spot where I had seen the action and immediately there was a strike but missed ':(' , on the halfway 2 nd strike but missed ':cry:', and 3 rd strike the fish jumped out of water and gone ':cry:'':cry:' . On a single cast, I had missed 3 strikes.

Understood that because of the water color, fish can't see the spinner
action.

9 ft Shimano rod with Shimano 4000 reel.Line is Powerpro braid and no 5 mepps aglia rainbow trout spinner.

We left the place and planning the trip again couple of weeks later.

Happy fishing all of you.

Looking for the opportunity

Great report and a good day out on the water. Thanks for sharing.

Just a bit of advice. Holding up fish like you are is a sure shot way of breaking the rod tip. Be careful mate. Even the smallest fish can thrash about and damage the rod.

Hi Ken,

Thanks for the advise. Normally I would not keep the rod with fish like this, but my pal want to take the picture as he was holding the camera so I posed as is.

Hi Guys,

Its an intersting story of a Carp being caught on a Spinner, as my understanding goes ( which could be very naive), that carps do not go on to chase lures & are best caught on bait. Will some of you cast some light on the usability of artifical lures in Carping.( With ref to our Indian Varities).

Regards,

Hi STRIVE, We've been catching carnatic carp on spinner for ages. They tend to prefer smaller spinners with a dressed treble.

I've also seen a grass carp take a big spinner on the Cauvery, that was a one of.... never seen it happen again.

The other carp like fish caught was a kala banse, hooked outside the mouth, again never seen that happen twice... but there's a chance this fish was foul hooked. Just in the wrong time at the wrong place.

Of course you already know mahseer will readily take a spinner. As for the rest of the carp family..... I'm not too sure. Guess we'll see if anyone comes up with something.

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.

Hi

Have been catching carnatic Carps on spinners for some time...

Here's one of my Biggest Carnatic Carp that was caught on size 5 Mepps Spinner while spinning for Mahseer, was around 3.5kg ,& one of my friends had caught a 6 kg Carnatic carp on the similar spinner from Cauvary,initally thought was a Mahseer,till we landed it.

I have heard of grass and silver carp taking spoons, spinners and plugs at Bhakra. If I remember right there was a thread about this sometime ago, I had even posted a picture of a very large silver that was taken on a plug. Will try and find it.

The thinking is that it is more of a territorial issue than a predatory attack with these big carp.

As for kala banse, they follow plugs and foul hook themselves all the time. Nice fight though if the fish is not badly hooked. Here's one that threw itself at a Jointed Rapala.

Friends,

That was quite intersting to learn from your experiences on catching specific species of carps on lures, though we have been fishing around Hyd using spoons/spinners but till date no luck with carps, hope luck favors us sooner or later. Your invaluable experiences will enthuse us to keep the pursuit on.....

Strive.
