Got this one near Hyderabad a few months back. Gave me a terrific fight- it took about 15 minutes to land it. I was using pretty light tackle, and more than once, felt that I may lose the fish. Ended up taking it with a landing net in almost chest deep water to avoid a dense weed bed near the shore. Really the stuff top drawer memories are made up of.

Got it near a place called Ganpur, 60-70 km out of Hyderabad. I didn't release it back, but I didn't eat it either! I had gone out with a couple of friends, and was the only one to have any luck that day - I gave this fish to one of my friends, and kept a murrel I caught after this for my table. Murrel definitely makes for better eating than Mulley. Incidentally, here's a tip if you want to eat the Mullies you catch. The fish is really oily if fried, but if you microwave it directly (after a decent marinade), it stays nice and firm, with no hint of oiliness. Does give off a lot of water, which takes some time to evaporate off , but makes for a far better dish than the fried version. Works out even better if you fillet and cube the flesh before cooking (Mulley is really easy to fillet). So here's to happy catching and good eating!
Cheers-

Hi Anil,

Very nice catch. Looks like you had a great fight while landing this fish. Congratulations.

You have some good fishing spots near Jhansi... The dam near Bina is one of them. I have visited that lake but do not remember the name..

happy fishing and tight lines..

Regards,

Ali.

Nice, Very Nice catch..should have been released though, Because i believe the mulley is facing local extinction in many place, Interested in knowing what bait you used? ,Hope this thread will be moved to the newly formed Catfish section here at IA.

just for the conversation string sakes, i want to let every body know the bloke who spent a week eating it was me, i guess it was to make up for the calories lost while carrying it back to civilization from middle of extreme wilderness where it was caught.

Anil fished this one out in such bad place that i was right behind him and did not have the courage even to step through the weeds he waded through, he is one
extreme angler.

It s good to hear that you enjoyed the fish and it s a good feeling the "extreme fishing". I although feel that you must not take unnecessary risk until you know the water and thinking of weeds gives me shudder they can really be dangerous. Anil my friend please do take care in future sorry to be sounding little gyani but could not help it :D

Hi Sudanil
if this is the same fish called Walla in Malayalam.
Interestingly the skin alone is super tasty to , just fried crispy in oil with some black pepper, salt and turmeric. Then just eat it mixed with some basmati rice.
I remember my grandmother used to make in my childhood days at the country farm house.
Cheers
