Well ! the idea was to avoid any debate over the size and wt. hence the packet, not having measured nor weighed the fish myself.
Next time, maybe after a couple of beers, as LF suggests ....... :lol:

All fish caught locally are kept for the table or frozen, for later, as there is no point in releasing them !

Congratulations to you! What a beautiful fish. Are the colours peculiar to the Krishna River Rohu.? And where in India does the Krishna flow? Is it a river of considerable significance? C'mon gentlemen, it would be good for All our readers to be enlightened! ! Not just the enlightened! Thanks. Glenn

Sorry, to post a pic. of the Rohu again. I got a mirgal, fishing the Krishna today and thought a pic. of both together/one above the other would help identify the differances, for those interested.

Hope this helps !

Thanks Gavin, I too estimated the fish to be around 3 kgs. but then I had the fish in my hands! It looks like you have caught enough of them to venture a estimate from a photo, which is difficult, to say the least ! I now wish I had weighed the fish.

Well, most of the Rohu caught around Pune have about the same colouring. Sometimes brighter, specially during spawning time. The farm raised ones are darb. I will leave it to the others, to comment on the Rohu found elsewhere in India, not having fished for/caught them elsewhere.
A pic. for you, of the Krishna, as it look's today.

Great pics dude....

The rohu is red in colour.. Males being a little more red than the females, During the mating season, the females get a little pale in comparison to their normal colouring...

Same applying to the mrigs as well !!

The Krishna starts in a hill station, called Mahableshwar, from a carving of a cow's mouth ! Of course its a stream there!
It runs through Satara and Sangli aprox 120 km away from Pune, it goes through 2 more states to the Bay of Bengal. It starts nearly on the west coast and ends up on the east coast, literally cutting across India.
My interest stems from reports of a large scaled,copper coloured, fighting fish, which I belive to be a Mahseer! Locally called Tambat (meaning copper coloured).
Hence my frequent, unsuccessful (till now) trips.

Thanks for taking the time to post more info about the Krishna and your quest to nail a mighty Masheer. Keep at it and I am sure you will be rewarded soon.I had been to Mahableshwar as a kid but can't remember much of the place.I am sure the flowing of the krishna thru the mouth of a cow was something not many people knew about! Very interesting Sanjay and thanks again.
The best to you,
Glenn

Yes, the Koyna has Mahaseer but the lake and surrounding's are a wildlife santuary. I fished it year's ago, when we had gone to Vasota, only got small gar, on spinner's. Tried trawling a rapla, with no results.The locals do catch Maral & small Mahseer, on live fish,frogs or crabs, on lines left overnite. I have seen a monster Catla, caught in a net though. There are Rohu also, I am told. Never tried for them though.The lake is HUGE !

On the way to the Kundalika from Pune, is Mulshi, which is closer for me. Mr.Ogale from Tata (before he retired) did a fish survey and found considerable 3/4 kilo mahaseer there. I have yet to hook one though! Some people I know, fish it regularly (in season) for Maral.

Thank's, for the invite and the same to you, if you are coming Pune side.

hi sanjay,

are waters of mulshi & kundalika connected..?.. was wondering if there are any mashaseer ..

locals at kundalika (adivasi's) catch some big fish with live frogs.. they do it by going in the river on a tractor tube & attach the line to it... a guy from mumbai who has a farm there said he has seen locals land a 80 kg fish with live frogs ... any idea wht fish this could be .. Masheer OR shivada (catfish).. ??

Hi Sanjay,
Nice pix of both fish. Easy to tell the difference between them now.

Mulshi has large pipes (two, I think) going down, portions can be seen along the road, going down to Kolad ! Maybe ........
I would think, since Tata is involved, they (pipes)would be for a hydro-elect. plant.

Kundalika has Mahaseer, they call it 'Khadshi' locally. The big fish landed could be anything !
