It was foul hooked when I was reeling in.

I believe they are called Glass Fish. Does anyone know the proper name for this fish? Looks a bit like a Tilapia to me.

It's one of the "Glassy Perchlets" (Family = Ambassis) but I don't know which one.

Thanks, Ken.

Is this more or less the size they grow to?

Acording to Fishbase http://www.fishbase.org/Country/Country ... freshwater
The biggest of them only get to about 12cm or or so.

It's nice to know that we do have a freshwater perch in India. I once caught a perch while spinning for pike in Belgium. The little bugger actually hit a size 5 Mepps!

I'm still trying to figure out how you're holding the fish up for the camera.

Hi Ken,
I wonder if Rustam's using double sided tape or blue tack. :lol: :lol:

Come on Rustam....how'd you manage to hole that glass fish like that?

The little thing got foul hooked in the side. So asked Putta to hold the hook whilst I took the snap.

Fortunately, the hook hadn't gone in deep, so it was released back into the lake.

This is an Indian Glassfish
Scientific Name: Chanda ranga
from the Centropomidae family

They grow to about 3 inches only, in some places they are dyed and sold in different colours :)

I remember catching them as a kid at Thippagundanahalli on worm and bringing them home to keep in my aquarium.

On the way to Magadi. About 30km from town. Its a dam across the Arkavati that supplies us with drinking water. Had some big murral, carp and tilapia there. The last murral I pulled out of the outflow was about 4kilos. Nice place, no idea if anyone still goes there but.

Hey Gavin,

Yup this is a decent forum with everyone on best behaviour.
:shock: :twisted:
So to make life easier we'll just go with TG halli. I hope that's better!!
The carp I saw were something like common carp and rohu. In the evening they'd be up on the surface rolling and every now and again you'd see red/orange fins break the surface. They never seemed to take anything... also I never really tried for them seriously. The only carp I pulled out of that place were small carnatic carp on atta paste.

TG halli that I speak of is the Arkavatti which is dammed and we fish the outflow below the gates. It's a string of pools about a kilometer long that hold fish. They're flowing this time of year and are relativly clear, but in the summer they're almost stagnant.

As for the secret bait, there was an earthworm on the hook but since it was foul hooked I can't really say.

Hey Rustam.....

Looks like you'll be the first on the scene once the fish hits the fan!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yup it is and there's Manchenbelle (hope Gavin's not looking :wink: ) which is close, if TG gets dull.
