Thanks to this forum and the tips provided by the members as a result of which was able to land this two and a half kg American Carp.
Landed this from a pond where we pay to angle.The owner of the pond welcomed us well but informed,fishes are not biting the bait at all.Still,as all anglers are,we too are an eternal optimist and thought would still cast and try our luck.Though I've always believed fishing is not about luck.Its more about ones knowledge and experience.The owner also informed me the ghat i was angling from is not a good one too.Yet i continued with my little experience and plenty of tips which I've gathered from this forum and kept casting with baits of every different kind.
Till lunch time had manged to land a half kg catla and a magur yet the bigger ones seemed elusive.We all were getting tired due to relentless heat ,high humidity and hunger.Thankfully the owner's son brought our lunch.Which consisted about Dal, Rice and Chicken.As we all were busy with our meal,I was struck with a notion of trying the served chicken as bait.Everyone thought I was kidding and did not take me seriously but I was eager to try it as i had read in this forum about adapting one in regards to the place of fishing.Had never tried fishing Carp on chicken but what enticed me to do so was,two chicken poultry within the vicinity of this pond.So tried it.
Eureka,30 minutes later was almost in the verge of reeling my line and try something else and then the spool went crazy Krrrrrrrrrrrrrr, what followed next was a small fight for around two to three minutes and landed it
Thanks to the forum and all its members.
