Hi Salim,

That's a great looking pink carp there!! Caught using ragi I assume? What bait were you using for the catfish?

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.

HI,
I think you have a Carntic Blue Carp there... only gets a reddish/pink hue in breeding condition. Its not a true carp but a Labeo. Unlike the carnatic carp Barbodes carnaticus which has a smaller mouth, facing foward, this one is a bottom feeder. It is endangered. The min. population doubling time is 14 years.

As for the spoons... bloody brilliant... goes to further add to the proof that fish attack movement and motion and not psychadellic colour schemes!

Pics; pls. refer to fish handling techniques...


Good show and tight lines!

Cheers,
IG

IG that would make it a really rare catch. Judging from the mouth and the fins I thought that was a mix of a Kalabonse and a Rahu. Never seen one in Pakistan though. :roll:

If you can balance the sppon, you can get a pattern akin to the KO Wobbler... pretty effective for mahseer on the R. Beas.

Yes, this resembles the KO wobler. This spoon is very effective in catching the catfish. You can expect the strike in every 2nd or 3rd cast.

Best

Salim
