hello everyone, today i went to a newly discovered place along the canal where i had seen huge carps. so lures were kept at home for a change. i used a very basic rig consisting of a hook dangling 5-6 ft beneath the bubble float. the bait was atta paste with a little turmeric added to it. i didnt remove the snap swivel attached to my main line, instead coverd it with some paste. after about ten minutes , the float suddenly dipped and went under.i set the hookbut unfortunately it did not give much of a fight considering its size. it seemed very lethargic. here are some pictures.

That is a fantastic carp, Aamir.
Such a pity it did not give a fight. Nevertheless you surely would have enjoyed the catch.
Congrats.

Great catch Doc!

Grass carp in my experience just don't fight except somewhat right under the rod tip if the water is deep just there. However to pull one out of flowing water first cast is superb angling.

All the best

thanks lakhyaman, irfaan, desmond, vinod, calvin, and apoo.


@lakhyaman- i would say superb luck rather than superb angling :lol:. i wonder why the non fighting capabilities of grass carp werent discussed before. i have been also informed that they rarely come on paste baits. usually people target them with moss or weeds tied on the hooks.

@ irfaanjaanny- bhai sahab, jab mere ghar ke pichwade badi machli milti hai to main chambal kyon jaaon. :lol: anyways thanks for recommending a new place.

@ desmond- this is the narmada canal. the water comes from the sardar sarover dam which is a huge reservoir.

Wow...fantastic carp dude


Usally carp will test our strength.. the specimen in your hands remains me the days when one of my buddy angler who hooked a grass carp of 12lbs (in Nilgris) which had more than 6 hooks hooked in her mouth.

she got beautiful scales on her..

good catch dude.

Congrats doc for the grass carp caught. It reminds me of old days when I used to catch grass carps as big as 15 to 20 pounds on raddish leaves. There is a lake near my house where vegetable sellers used to clean the raddish on the lake and thats how the grass carps started eating these leaves. It was real fun. Those days have gone now and what remains is only the memories.

These guys never give a fight....once pulled up a 10kg gc with simple bamboo pole..

But catching a big carp from flowing water is simply great angling. Respect.

@dr aamir

1. how big maida paste u put in the hook? do carp bites maida/aata ??

2. how much lead/weight do u put in ur tackle?

3. wat else can we use (home made indian methods or live lure) to catch common carp?

thanks akshay and sandeep. :-)

@srsthyn- i do lure fishing most of the time and might not be able to answer all your questions. sometimes i do bait fishing for a change and this catch was lucky as they normally dont come on paste baits. for details on bait recepies and techniques, search for posts by anglerali. i had used enough dough to cover the single hook and there was no lead or weight used. the hook was 5-6 feet beneath the float.
