Was busy on Sunday with my laptop completed work by 3:20 pm, was not sure will go for fishing or not, later a true angler instinct made me to rush by 3:50 after taking bath and Lunch to nearest location on Narmada river.
With my farm keeper after reaching place noticed water level was perfect for good catch, we devoted a coconut to river Narmada, as since many days I was not getting a decent size fish.
I tried many lures like Swim Shad, Rapala Magnum then Dancing Tail, but no luck also the river was full of weeds which it carried from upstream was entangling on lures, destroying lure actions.
Then I decided not to use any swim baits rather shifted to heavy spoon, after 2 or 3 long casting, 100 yards away in current, on deeper side I left it to sink. Got the strike it seems to be 4 or 5 kg Mahaseer in current as Mahaseer is on my mind, I was reeling in and in it did not gave me hard fight like Mahaseer at all but surely not lesser too, I decided to make it tired 3 times I made it run then reel in all over in just in 5 Minutes Was surprised it was Cat fish from fast flowing current.
It turned out to a day to celebrate and SAD TOOooooo.
I let the dust settle down, shifted to other place 100 Meters up stream, changed to other rod loaded with 14lb mono, loaded light weigh Spoon, and few cast, hey I got a bigieee strike all off sudden reel started craking…. I screamed and asked my guy for help, as kept on loose drag, Before I could understand any thing I came to know that fish already gone to heavy current and realized that spool was empty, Mono broken from the Spool knot, even tried my hand on it , got a cut on finger.
It took 80 yards of Mono and spoon along with it. Feeling pitty on it.
Later returned to home, my Son was over exited and he took out his little fishing rod, started practicing on dead cat fish. It was 3.1 Kg Cat fish.
I hope you guys will like the pics.
