Hi Guys,

Eljefe & I are off to the pump house on Sunday, 17th of June... If any of you are interested, then let us know.

Cheers,

Dhruv

The pump house will be pumping. So no fish.

Anyway I will not be there so I hope your lines snap, get nests and foul on everything else. Not to forget may your hooks be blunt.

hahahahaha just turning green.

Have a nice time. And keep the rods up high.

I am mad-on sundays, i wake up at 4 am and run out...other days I wake up at 7.20am
Pump house gang- Indiangypsy and Eljefe were hard at work dispelling myths:
1.Magur taken on
Ragi and hing a la down south!
In response to Dhruv's question of "sher ghas khata hia kya?"

2.Eel (Bam)-available-again on ragi and hing...
3.Grass carp-Ohhh yessss!
4.marral/ sowl/solly- come out and do a jig :D
5.Marral take hair rigs-atta boilie, Did'nt know enough about fish handling to keep him on a no.8 barbless carp hook.We've promised to meet in a couple of weeks :twisted:
Gypsy and I had 2kg+ marral hookset within a minute.
Gypsy is part spider-hung off the bridge and snared himself a marral loafing below-just presented the bait and the fish took it - 2 lb line at that...

Great offroading-gypsy and his pajero made my day-slithered and skidded thru a slushed up road next to a canal-left side was a drop of 30ft to the fields and to the right was the canal.Gypsy and the Ghilly can probably swim, car and I cant ;) but we reversed out famously...

got a solitary snap on the cell camera of gypsy and his 2nd grass carp, will post.Thats because the magur came by and decided he had to make this south indian's day on ragi! 8)

Ha ha Ken,

Wished you were there man!!! we sent you a post card... depending on the efficiency of the indian mail service, it should get to you in about 6 trillion years!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Man what a trip!!! Like Eljefe said... insane trip!!! a whole lot of fish (by delhi standards) in 2.5 hours of fishing!!!

here is what it looked like...

Windswept rainy morning!!! Man it was pouring by the time we hit Gurgaon… seemed pointless at first, but I kept my fingers crossed that the cloud cover would break, and about 10 am it did…. But boy was it slushy!!!

The OTR happened to be very impromptu, trying to get at the big 6kg sols, but better sense prevailed and we left them for another day!!!

It was back to the big ‘jodh’ after that, and the dry field we drove across last time did not seem too inviting! I think quagmire would be the right word to describe it! Taking a little detour through a slushy dirt track, we soon ran out of road and did manage to get bogged down… but sheer luck and a 2.8ltr engine did the job of getting us out… 8) 8) 8)

Anyway, we reached the waters, baited the lines and the waiting game began… we’ll we waited for about a minute and a half till the first bite, and after that, there ws no looking back!!! What a riot!!!

The first fish of the day was a common carp weighing in a tad over 3 lbs. Caught using the huble earth worm! Next came a baam (Anguilla bengalensis bengalensis), measuring in about 12”… slippery lil fellow! Earthworm again!

Eljefe then managed to get a desi Magur… and the question of the day arose…’Kya Sher Ghaas khata hai’? I guess they do, cause Eljefe managed to get him on raagi concoction! I guess South Indian grub was the flavour of the day, and the guys at Sagar Ratna were busy!!! He got his next bite of an eel (again of raagi paste)! :shock: :!: :o :o

I got another carp roughly the same size on earth worm again, and then we packed and headed out to le lac du Chuchakwas. We were bored of getting nuisance bites from little 100 gm sols all along!!!

Reached the canal opening at the lake, and we were dismayed at the low water level… but we took out a rod each any way… me with my Shakespeare Excursion light action using 4lb line and Eljefe with his fav. Ugly Stick… dunno what line he had on…but he was using a no. 8 barbless carp hook &… you are allowed one guess for the bait…. :!:

Both of us got busy on the water… Eljefe on the canal banks, while I decided to walk onto the bridge to see the action under it… both sink our lines in… wait about 30 secs and both get bites!!! And boy did they bite!!! I hear a big splash, look up and see Eljefe fighting this huge sol (damn thing spat the hook) 5 feet from the bank! As for me, mesmerized by the action 30 yards away, I’ve totally forgotten about my line in the water… big mistake when you are doing a balancing act on bridge pylon!!! The initial tug had me holding on for dear life, rod and fish! One hand on the bridge, other on the water with feet dangling in thin air… Only thing I was worried about was loosing the sol… after all, there was a trauma specialist there to take care of any broken bones!!!

And then began the dilemma… how do I land the guy… he was huge, I had 2 lbs mono, was dangling in thin air and didn’t have a clue how to land the fish or myself!!! One of the local kids came to the rescue and climbed down to secure the sol, while I secured my self!!! Nice fat fellow, got home and weighed him in at 2.4 kgs!!!

So in a nut shell, we had a good day, and can’t wait to get back again!!! :D :D :D


Cheers,

Dhruv

hey apoo,

come on up and we'll show you what delhi has to offer!!! I can't promise you much, but will promise you that you'll have a nice time trying to outsmart the high iq fish we have here!!! (they have to have a high iq to have survived this long!!!) :D

let us know when you'll be coming up, and we'll figure out something... try to keep it for a weekend... the trips to the pumphouse are very sporadic!

Cheers,
Dhruv

IG you kidding or what??!!

If magur and baam are eating ragi-hing, they can't have a very high iq can they? They probably wanted a change of diet from the chilwa-poothi-worm and no one fishes for them because the locals must be thakurs with fishing far below their dignity :twisted:

Cheers

Hi guys,

you sure did have a blast.........wish I was there. Your description made it seem almost life like while reading.

I had the crappiest weekend of all. I had 5 others with me this time as word had got around that I always get fish no matter what. :roll:

yes...you guessed right, I suppose there were too many people & I managed to hook only 2 snappers black spot snappers. I guess I'm not going to take more than 2 people on any trips here. Surprisingly the sea was quite rough with a high swell. HT was @ 2.15mts....highest I have ever seen in the past few months.

anyway, that is not all. For me the fishing season here in Dxb is officially closed. I had a crash at 110kmph on sunday evening & the car is a wreck. I'm ok, except for a sprained neck. Got to rethink my priorities & I guess family comes first at this moment.........I think atleast I get the car back :lol:

Hi Keyur,
Hate to rub it in mate but 80 kilometres an hour is better than 110!! Gives you more time to react for sure!! Nonetheless, get well soon! Jude's advice is sound. Keep smiling!!
Cheers,
Glenn

HI guys,

thanks for your concern. Here 110kmph was slow for that road. 80kmph...I'd sure be 6feet under. That was an express road....permissable speed 160kmph.

The company has replaced the Lamby with a Ferrari :twisted: Thats a good thing when the company gives you a car..immediate replacement :wink:

anyway, I'm almost good to go now, & just a slight pain in the shoulder-neck. Not sure about any fishing till Sept / oct when the season starts again. Its too frustrating to just catch 2 little buggers everytime.

Hi Fred,

we could definately meet up when your here. Its not the best time to be fishing as the heat is really up & the humidity too is a little too much to bear. We could however fix up a plan & cast some lines.

You can buzz me on +97150 4538208 (local - 050-4538208). Preferably the weekend for a trip (Friday & sat off), but we can surely meet up anytime during the week.

Regarding the accident......fortunately for me my wife is a Physio :wink:

Besides I can take any allopathy medicines (pain killers or anything), not even skin applications as I'm undergoing homeopathy treatment for my allergy (thanks to the AC). I seem to be fine for the moment, & no aches or pains.....so thats good.

Let me know when you are coming. I can get a few guys lined up. (incl chua 'Tackle bloke' - the chap who makes fishing rods)

See ya when you get here.
