Hello all,

Here is a picture of a 'mystery' fish that I caught using a mepps spinner on the Cauvery. I've no idea what it is.

Does anyone out there know what species etc... this is??

Many thanks,

Sam.

Umm...looks a bit like Image. I was told it was a Carnatic Carp.

Caught using a grasshopper, incidentally.

Hi,
I am not an authority on fishes, but is it some sort of Barb?
Looks very much like the tin foil barb I have in my aquarium....

Looks to me like a Carnatic Carp Sam. Pretty common in the Kaveri. Takes worm, ragiballs, spinners, atta, and even a fly, when in a good mood. Grows pretty big. I have seen one over 20lbs.

Thanks, Owen. Do the bigger chappies also go for all you have mentioned above? What depth do you usually find them at?

Sam,

That was a carnatic carp that you caught there. They very readily take spinners and have caught them on small plugs also.

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.

Very close to the surface is where they are. You ought to see them at Galibori camp at around 8 am and 4 pm when the left overs are dumped from the coracle. They are there in hundreds, churning up the water just waiting for their share. You can catch them on a piece of tomato, beans, potatoes, chapathis, even chicken fat. They will eat almost anything at that time of day.

Owen,

Excellent tips and thanks. Will bear it in mind the next time I take the kids to Galibori.

Incidentally, that's where I caught my first and only carp to date - the one in the pic.
