The singhara is probably one of the most under appreciated fish.

I would rate it as my third favourite fish to catch afetr maseer and trout. It takes lures readily, often gives a decent fight and above all is delicious. It is also a prolific breeder, so you can keep them without feeling guilty.

Please post pics of singhara you have caught, escpecially lure caught ones.

Singharas caught a couple of years ago at Mangla Dam, Kashmir on Mepps spinners.

Notice the massive chilwa in the second pic, almost a pound, took a #5 Mepps!

The Samundari Khagga (sea catfish) does not fight as well as a freshwater singhara, does'nt taste as good either.

Singhara are better fighters then malhi too. Take lures more readily as well.

Any body have any other singhara pics? Post-processing pics of Batter fried and pakoraofied singhara would also suffice...

Nice Mullis Rajat Da!

Did you get them on lures or worms.

The singhara is a fairly common fish in the Indus Basin, I dont know about Central India though.

That cat is a beauty, but I doubt it is the same fish that Ali posted, could be wrong though.

Hi Ken,

My thoughts exactly but I did not say so because they are found in S America. I doubt it is a Red-Tailed Cat.

Maybe Shapan is correct it could be the same fish in Spawning Colours, you never know...but it sure is a lot more vivid to be just that.

Bobby

Does not look like a Red tailed Catfish.
A lot of people keep them in aquariums here.
Although it does not naturally belong here, one may in a rare case find it as some people release these kind of fishes in local water bodies after discovering it is outgrowing their fish tanks.

That is a singhara and an excellent speciman at that. Rivere singhara tend to be longer than those that live in stillwater, but the fins of that one are exceptionally bright.
Other than the South American Red Tail their is also an Asiatic Red Tail Catfish which looks alot like the singhara. Viper's friend's singhara looks very much like an Asian red tail.

Macrones Seenghala is an outdated scientific name.
This fish has been reclassified many times and a quick look through fish base and other fish databases reveal several names including Mystus Seenghala, Sperata Seenghala, Sperata Aor and Aorichthys Aor.
I wonder why their is no scientific consensus on the naming of the singhara.

Rajat / Ali,

We call it tengra too (Assam). But they are quite smaller in size.
