Yesterday my some important meeting was postponed , got opportunity to make my way to wards my recent casting location, on Narmada River at Jabalpur, in search of Central Indian Mahaseer, which is just 20 minutes drive from My residence (m lucky).
Reached on Spot at 04:30 Pm, water was clear and level was high due to the water released by Bargi Dam for electricity generation, seemed good time for mahaseer.
I used 6 ft. telescopic rod yesterday, had mono Indian 14 lb Line on it, I dont know what made me to use Telesopic rod yesterday,
I attached minnow orange, green color on it and made 1st cast
On my 2nd cast on slow retrieve of just 20 seconds I got a jerk, thought, again Minnow stuck into rocks, but what I saw my reel was cracking took my line for 25 yards and it stopped, when I started reeling in it again started moving to wards current.
I slowly started reeling and tried it should not go into current else the pull may intensified as my line was not in good shape, it took almost 7 minutes to get it on shallow place where we did video. I think It may be around 1.5kg.
It was released back to water after video.
