Hi guy's,
this is an old picture taken at Mekadatu on the Kaveri. This fish was caught on live bait using a wire trace, 40 lb mono. The fish took the bait deep down into a hole in the river bed. The angler was very fortunate to land this fish. The waters from which it was taken out are shown in the next picture.
Regards
Owen

Hi Owen,

Nice fish. One doesn't hear very much about silund these days. I remember Subban telling me stories about these fish, way back when I started to fish this stretch.
All met an old chap called Hussain Bhai who used to only fish for Silund using live bait, a pity he was too old to go down and show us how :cry:

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.

Hi Owen

Now that's an interesting looking fish. How big do they get and are they common enough to fish for? Have you ever fished for them?
