You are absolutely right Rajat.
Mettur Dam is regularly stocked with Catla (for that matter all sorts of carp and murrel) for commercial purpose. Tons and tons are harvested every year and the local fisherman make a decent living out of this.
Sad part of the story is............the dam is leased out to the highest bidder every year or so........and we serious anglers don't get a chance to fish these dams..
If given a chance and if Ali gives us the know how of his tackle.....we would catch a lot of fish in the dam :D LOL.

I agree RAJATDA this size of fish may have accidently landed in the net and they could have easily released it back but chose not to do so only for fame and greed

Great fish,

Looks more like a Seamese Carp than a catla to me :roll:

Ali.
