Took my family - wife and two brats .They wanted to go to goa
Gavin came alone.His wife/son gave hath last minute.
On the first day the only thing Gavin caught...as soon as we landed 1130am ...Tila..
Other than that we caught zero ...ragi,ragi/hing,atta,bread/butter/turmeric,wild,spinning, figs,spit,mud,worms..we tried everything .
We did see some croc dropping though...the boys were
fascinated ..shit trip ....
Next day we decided to take off the Forbes Sagar at 0900am.
Gavin landed his first ever mahseer ...4 kgs...look at his teeth...Gavs...
Meanwhile I took off in the coracle with Dereks rig, lunker lure and spinner4.
My first murral 2.5...
with lunker lure...
But then I took it off,was tangling up ...checked later with Derek...I was doing it wrong...connecting swivel direct to lure bend.
Got the next one with the blue fox 4 spinner. Big feller...4kg...
Hooked the next on sp4 and drew it right upto the boat.
Lifted it slightly outa the water and it did a backflip
,stuck the triple in my forearm, spat the hook out and took off..
Meanwhile Gavin was busy and caught a 1.5kg and 2.5kg while we were away..
Went back to WASI Cottage for lunch and around 0400pm to headworks
My elder son Arjun caught a Mahseer and a Carnatic Carp there.
The boy is still floating in the air...
While I caught a Carnatic carp.

Had to leave sudenly, some miscreants had set the coracle adrift in Forbes.
Tried there for a while...had a few nibbles...but the mosquitoes were after our blood...
Back to cottage for some night tries and again the next morning...Zilch
These guys had better luck.
So till the next time and that elusive 20kg Rohu...
