We left Coonoor at 4.00 AM and reached Mettupalayam where we picked up Gorden. We reached the Bhavanisagar lake at 6.00 AM. The water level has been dropping rapidily and now we could cast to the deep waters where the big murrel reside.
gorden caught 3 murrel and I caught this beauty, which was approximately 6 KG, and it gave a good fight for 10 minutes.
The rod used was a Rapala 7ft mediun
The Reel was a Daiwa Theory 4000
The line was a 8lb Berkley Fireline braid
and the spinner was Panther 150 from the all species lure . The only problem was that the centre wire needed to be straightened after the catch
Regards

Hi Michael,

Its beautiful and congrats.Last week same place I caught one around 2.00 kgs and after the sudden showers , we left the place.

Hope Gorden also caught something last week as he had spent almost 2-3 hours on this same place after we left.
