At last...got my 1st fish and :D 2nd as well...both were approx 1kg. Sam was kind and patient enough to take me and show me the tricks. Thanks Sam.
Started early around 5 and promptly went off to sleep (ofcourse...was partying late on Friday :oops: )when I transferred to his car. Got up almost when we reached there and was led to a canal. Water seemed low to me, but was assured that the action is there...and boy it was...
In total we caught 5 fish between us...me 2 and Sam 3; though the last one which Sam caught was something to look at...half my height and weighed 5.5 kgs. And guys, you should have seen the fight this fish gave....simply wow... :oops: Just stood there with my mouth open and missed the vdo....but anyways I got the pics...
Mine 1st

Mine 2nd

Sam's 1st of the day
Image

Sam's last of the day...5.5 kgs, the one that ran like crazy
Image

And here's me again with Sam's catch... :P
Image

We also lost one which broke the braided line...30 lbs I think. If only the heat was less, we were ready to get more....Overall an amazing day for me, thanks to Sam.

Thank you Ken, I am sure if you had the opportunity, you would have got him out.

What was interesting was the huge fight it gave - over 8 serious runs.

Fantastic Sammo.... Tried calling you back on Sunday but couldnt get the thru.... I think that's the biggest bugger out of the canal so far :roll: :roll: wat say Mr Bond ???

Bad luck guys on the missed one, but he must have been a monster of fish to break braid... I have seen sol upto 10-12kgs in the canal :shock: (ToitleKen is witness to that unforgettable day)

Keep at it guys and am sure that you will get the big 'un one of these days

Tight Lines,
GRC

Gavin,

I lost one after a short fight, which according to the gilli had a mouth as large as two hands spread. When he took the bite the whole place vibrated with his splash. My line was too badly entangled in the weeds after he took my bait. Laxman went in but came out so dissapointed, that he forgot to get my plug out.

Thanks and Cheers
