Rainy Sunday afternoons. Hot cups of tea. Pure boredom. It's been 45 days since my last trip to the hills. I confess that I have wet the line many time over the last few days. But nothing compares to the thrill of a mahseer, no matter how big or small, at the end of your line. So, what else can a grounded angler do except go through some old pictures. And try and relive magic moments.

Here are some pictures of our last trip. It was another rushed trip because words was that the fish were throwing themselves at you. Over three days we saw more than 100 fish caught. Approximately 40 by us, three and a half rods, and the rest by the local on chilwa and atta.




A little piece of heaven







Good friends, great trips







Fish on!




Typical strike zone




Tiger, tiger










Say AHH!






















Wrecks! The water had dropped by a good 400 ft this year




Poetry in motion




takes your breath away




INS Mahseer




Bloody battles

Hi there Shapan,

I am assuming the place is over fished like all dams in part of the world.

What we look for is straight drop off with ledges near by. This is where the little fish live so the mahseer come up from the deep and feast.

While trolling we use a lot of deep running plugs. They always work. Though some friends insist on shallow running jointed plugs I stay away as I have neve got a hit on these. As for the right colours, it is a question of trial and error.

The places to look for are away from weeds, sand or mud. You need nice clean water with a lot of rocks and boulders.

While trolling vary your speed constantly till you find the right pace. The Fluff up is that this seems to cahnge from area to area and by the minute. so best of luck on this one.

How much line you let out is another question mark. Here people constantly throw food into the water so fish seem to follow boats pretty close in certain places. But I suggest you let out a minimum 50 meters. Balance the drag to the point where the it does not open because of the water resistance. And then wait.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Mahaseerken,

Thanx mate. On my next trip to Tarbella I am going to try plugs and trolling. What is the most productive time of the day for Mahasheer?

What plugs do you use? Which is the most effective. And lastly do you'll bait fish from the boat as well. If yes what bait and do you let it setle at the bottom or leave it suspended in the water.

Shapan,

Timings? The Mahseer have none really. Just depends on the weather. I have found that before and after storms is the best time. Or at twilight.

I don't really bait fish at Bhakra. To kill time I sometimes sit and throw a line in for catfish, eel or rohu (yummy). I use atta or a piece of chilwa. and straight on the hook. No weight, no float.

Since it was really hot this time we did sit one afternoon to fish with the locals. We used fresh but dead chilwa around 5 to 7 inches long. I managed one eel that had impaled itself on my hook.

The bearded fellow, Nigel, had a big take and a run from hell, about 100mtr fast. But by the time he shook of his slumber (beer high), got out of the chair, stepped out of the tent, stretched and figured out where his screaming rod the fish had digested and cr*****ed out his bait. hahahahaahahaaah

Better luck next time Nigel! You'll remember that bite all your life.

GRC!

At that time it was just above 1500 ft. After the rains it tops off at around 1900 ft. Anything above that and the spill gates have to be opened.

Remember this is India's biggest dam. It towers 2 and a half times above the Qutab Minar. I measured the lake on google earth and the lake which is oval shaped measured apprx 40km by 4km.
