Hi,


Never seen this fish before. Locals call it Jilebi. Seems to be introduced, the fish was caught by local fishermen, he had strung the fish just above the eye and let the fish back in the water ,this i believe keeps the fish alive all night. The fish was caught in nets, near a bund across the River.

So fish id please.

Thanks

Imran

Hi Imran, What you have there looks like a Tilapia....locals in the Cauvery region use the name 'Jilebi' for fish of the Tilapia family.

Mighty Marlin.

Thanks Marlin,

I Googled Tilapia. I think you are right its the 'Nile Tilapia'. Had heard the name so often but could never relate to it. Is any harm to the local fish and habitat observed?

Imran

Spinner=Mepps Aglia plain silver #0 may be the other will also work

Fly, I think any small fly (black/brown) on size 12-16 hook, i used Prince Nymphs, but there is an issue, they will sure destroy your fly so if ur tying ur own then its ok otherwise don’t use the expensive one.

Good luck

Here in Assam we use earthworm or atta paste to catch tillapias. This is a highly voracious eater and will try to eat anything. Sometimes we use only the hooks (red) when the population of this fish is very high.
