How does one size the pictures to fill the computer screen as the other pictures are?

Hi Michael

Nice fish, I see Gordon by your side.

The way you're posting the pictures is the best method to use since it does not clutter up your post. To see a bigger version of your pictures all one has to do is click on the little pics in your post and a new page will open with the big image.

Cheers
Bops

Hi Michael,

That's a nice catch you have there. I'm assuming all were caught with spinner. It's been ages since I fished Bhavani Sagar.

Please convey my regards to Mr. Thompson.

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.

The fishing in Bhavanisagar lake right now is ZERO. Due to the unseasonal rains, the lake is full, the canal is full and the river is full. All the murrel were caught with #4 size spinners of different makes, that catch was the effort of 5 anglers.MM I went with Gorden, Basil and Anand today , and after a days fishing we got only a single fish caught by me which I am posting and I hope I got the resizing correct this time.The rods used were Shimano RG-SU, the reel was Daiwa Spinmatic-X 500T, 2 lb monofiliment line with a Mepps #2 spinner with a bronze blade with green spots.

Hello Michael,

That's a nice Gar fish you have there. We catch very similar fish here... they're a blast to catch on light line and fight on the surface, leaping often to throw the hooks.

I'll call Gordon once I'm back and head out to Metupalyam and come fish with you guys.... heard you're having a real blast using yourt trout tackle to take on Carnatic Carp..... will have tofind my small spinners first but!!

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.

Hi Michael,

Really nice pics of the lake. Can you give me more information of the lake? Like location, altitude, weather etc? Actually I have a very limited knowledge regarding South India. Any other pics available with you?

Cheers,
Apoo

Hi Apoo,
the lake is in the plains in Erode District,and two rivers converge at the dam -Bhavani and Moyar. Elevation would be about 800 ft and both the rivers originate in the Nilgiris. The climate is hot , dry , no shade with scrub jungle on the shores. There is plenty of wild life around it. One half of the lake has the Nilgiriand BR Hills as the backdrop.The closest town is Mettupalayam about 28 Km away. Coimbatore is about 68 Km away and Coonoor about 65 Km. Below some more pictures of the lake
