hi guys, a few months back i caught a small mahseer accidentally while spinning for murrels in the sabarmati river. then started an investigation for the source of the mahseer because normally we dont find mahseer in the sabarmati river downstream of the dam which is some 160 kms from ahmedabad. i later found out that the source was the narmada canal from where the water was released into the sabarmati. a few months passed before i got permission to fish that stretch. finally i went there today morning and caught three mahseer. two six lbs each and the third went around a water breaker and broke my line. needless to say all the mahseer were released. here are a few pictures.










this murrel was a bonus..

Some nice catches there, Amir.

thanks kuldipji , they were caught on a mepps no5 in gold. the technique was to cast upstream in the fast water and bring the spinner along the flow.

@calvin- thankyou verymuch

I guess now the only fishes left for you to catch are the likes of the 40kg GT's and maybe a Marlin! Awesome looking golden Mahseer there! congratulations on hooking a hooked species in waters where you least expected it. We pune people might just witness some mahseer action if the reports are true and if the fingerlings/palm sized mahseer have been released a few months ago some of them might have just become elbow size by now?..... or atleast I'm guessing/hoping.

Doctor your a star when it comes to angling in India! hoping to fish with you again..... sooner than later!

Congratulations once again.

Regards,
Omesh

Good stuff Amir. Rahul used to tell me that he saw big masheer in the canal.

What lovely specimen. Big congrats to you.

The canal system in Guj is a great blessing for fish as the protection is near total. They just need to go one step more and recognise the potential of recreational fishing .

Has it started raining there?

Jeen

thanks a lot jeen. i remember rahul telling me once that he saw big mahseer at the header during the monsoons when they migrate upstream. i tried fishing downstream of the header without any luck. this particular place has two big pools before the water enters the canal and the mahseer have thrived here. you can see huge mahseer patrolling the waters. permissions were a problem which was taken care of by a very influential friend of mine. even then i had to explain to the sceptical officers that angling is a sport and we are going to release our catches. the monsoons have still not reached ahmedabad.

A sight for sore eyes! Normally, I hear tales of Mahseer being depleted. So this one of propagation is really special!

Great news and may they multiply!

thanks robkujur :-)


@daddykazaa- thanks. thats a fish grip.

@sanchan - mahseer love fast flowing water. in fact faster the better. you can use a variety of lures for mahseer like spinners, plugs, soft plastics , spoons etc
