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,
Two small Masheers,
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
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.
