The mistake is that you are using the first link from the Imageshack page. You need to use the box that is right below the image on the Image Shack page. The box which has "Hotlink for forums (1)" written next to it.

Bops

PS. Post an introduction of yourself under the Introductions section.

Wow! And it is hooked in the mouth... caught the right way.

I have been trying for some time to get one of those beauties. Please fill me on the details. That is what bait, groundbait if any, the tackle set up... were you using a float or was it off the bottom.

Sorry lots of questions but that is one great fish.

Great Fish dude... Very rare to get a grass carp hooked in the mouth as they tend not to go for any bait..

Beautiful fish mate..

Released ?? :roll: :roll: :?:

Thanks a ton mate.

Will try this the next time I meet these beauties.

Just a few more questions. Is the lake very deep? (The one where I have seen monster carp is.) And how far of the bottom do you think they feed.

it was not a very deep water, 7-10 ft deep. Grass carp perhaps do not like fast flowing water. Like to stay in kind of weedy, near stagnant water areas towards the river margins. Good luck.

Great catch Sualeh and thanks for the info on grass carp and rohu feeding techniques...
By the pics posted by you, I think that this pind is a public pond where it looks like the people could be feeding the fish, hence the affinity to your bread bait and the hook-ups..
Nonetheless, good going.. Looks like really good waters and am sure you gonna have more pics on the forum..
Suggest you have a bait at the bottom also, there could be some good size mrigals in there..

All the best, dude

Hi Gavin

These Rohus and grass carps have been caught from different places. The 10 Kg grass carp was caught from the lake of a public recreation park. Remaining have been caught from Marala where three river, ie, Munawar Tawi, Chenab and Jammu Tawi meet. Since the place is beautiful so many recreational spots have also come up in the area. There are many permanant ponds along and in the areas between the rivers. I prefer to fish in these ponds. In monsoon, these ponds (some of them are huge) become a part of three rivers and the entire area becomes one water body. After the rains these ponds start emerging and contain a lot of fish. I used bread (chapati pieces) as bait in these areas also and had good success so far. Perhaps the anglers have so far not spoiled the eating habits of the fish in this area by using fancy baits (charai).
I do bottom rigging as well but that is normally done for mrigal (called mori in Punjab) and common carp (gulfam) of which i am personally not very fond of. Rohu fights hard and secondly the pleasure of watching the float disappear is a great sight. Just a matter of personal liking. Otherwise i do resort to bottom fishing while fishing for mori and common carp. Thanks for the tips buddy.

Cheers

Sualeh

Thanks for the feedback on the ponds.. Its good to know that the place and fish are not used to charai..
I totally agree with you on fishing for rohu.. They are very strong fish and pound for pound, one of the strongest fighting fish u can find..
I prefer catching rohus over mrigals, any day of the week..

Good going mate !! :D Wish you catch many more fish...

By the way, any catlas here?? :roll: :roll:

Thanks a lot Gavin, its been a pleasure interacting with you. There are catlas here (we call it Thela meaning a sack) but somehow, it remains a least caught fish here. Perhaps because of its habit of eating from the surface. I only caught it once. Can try for more though. The one i caught was just by chance. I used a bread piece (naan) with a float and no weight. As you know how naan are prepared, it started floating on water surface and there came a Thela from nowhere. i think i can try it again. Thanks for reminding.
Cheers
Sualeh

Catlas ( Thela ) are very timid fish.. Here in Calcutta, you are considered a good angler if you can repeatedly catch them..
It takes a lot of patience to catch this fish and lot of hard work and studying the water to know where exactly it is.. But its worth it, to know you caught a fish that is one of the most difficult to catch..

Thelas are surface feeders and usually eat the algae on the water, however to catch them you need them to sit at the bottom and to do this, you need to groundbait. This does not mean using charai, but you can use a lot of rice mixed with maize flour ( satoo ).. Float fishing is the best way to catch them..

Any chance of pics :roll:

Hi Rana. There is an informative thread about winter fishing in bait tackle and tactics. May like to have a look.
Regards
