Weekend at Galibore,

The weekend at Galibore turned out to be one of the best fishing weekend. We were told that the Masheer had bred and it wasn’t advisable to Fish for them. The water too was very murky with the rains in that region. We decided not to fish that day and decided to fish the next day. The next day we started of with some ground baiting a particular area and started experimenting with various different hook baits. We used light tackle with Size 10 Barbless hooks. By that evening our count was

40 + Cat fish varying in size,
One Turtle,
One Calabose,
Two small Masheers,
One Carp,
Five Tilapia,
Two Sergeant Majors (Green Chromide),
One Freshwater Shark.

The Baits used were, Corn (didn’t work), Luncheon Meat (Excellent Bait), Gold Fish Pellets (Worked very well), Dog Biscuits (Excellent Bait), Ragi, Atta and the best of all Chicken Gut.

The maximum catch was on Chicken Gut, second on Luncheon Meat, Gold Fish Pellets, Dog Biscuits, Ragi and Atta. Tilapia's, Sergeant Majors, 5 Cat fish were taken for the pot the rest were released.

Kalabaose or Calbose (I think Bops knows the exact spelling, the mouth is at the bottom and the nose is like a Cows nose) apparently they never take bait, they dwell among the rocks living on Algae

Image

Croaking Catfish - Excellent Food source, we caught varying size from 1.5 Kilos to few grams, got tired of taking pictures.

Green Chromide / Sergeant Major, These are sometimes found in Aquarium Shops.

Mr. Turtle, hooked him on Dog Biscuit, He wasnt too happy

Hi Derek,
Nice to hear that you guys had a good time.
Were there any signs of big fish ? or have they moved upriver ?
Regards
Owen

We were told that the fish were at the bottom and moved upstream, I did not see any activities or splashes, but I did see a couple of dead Masheer where I was told they died because of Dynamiting.

Wow! Excellent catch. And that small one you are dangling in the water is the best.

Always wanted to try dog biscuits. How did you get them on to the hook. did you knead them into a dough first or mix them with some atta. Please tell.

About the luncheon meat. I always take some with me but eat it up instead of using it for bait.

Take care mate. And tight lines always.

PS: Love the fact that you used barbless hooks

Yes I know, thats the best catch so far ;), I put the dog biscuits in a Ziploc bag sprinkled some water not much then kept it overnight, the center is still hard at the end of it. They slip thru the hook very nicely, I wasnt casting too far so they stayed on the hook pretty good.

Its always very tricky to unhook a turtle as the hide their head, so it becomes very difficult in this case I had to cut the line and let the turtle go

Derek,
I once caught a turtle, and could not remove the hook as the fellow was playing hide and seek with me. I cut the line and kept him on the bank.
He spat out the hook in ten minutes flat :lol:

Hi Derek,

Nice to see a report from Galibori. It ha been some time since I've fished the stretch. Planning on heading down for a couple of days.... hopefuly sometime soon. May carry a light rod and see what I can catch.

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.

He is a friend of mine, he landed the first one, I unhooked it with my hands but he does not have experience holding the catfish so I thought it was best for him to hold it with pliers. They can be very dangerous I got stung in Dev bagh and the pain lasted for a whole week.

nice pics mate and for whatever its worth for next time, keep the tilapia for the pot as well. they're non endemic and even though it probably wont make a difference, keep them on principle.

best

I agree with you Ryan, I did keep it for the pot, I never put Tilapias or African Catfish back if I catch, them If I dont eat it then I give it away to others. I think every angler should do it, they infest every waterbody there is in this country.
