Spent Saturday fishing with Ali and Santosh at Powai lake.We all had a great time with Santosh catching a large 3.5 kg Magur and myself catching my first Mrigal.
The mrigal was released after it had recovered.
Looking forward to the rains,Ali tells us that the fish really start biting then :D
Regards,
Yaj.

Yaj & Santosh
:D :D
Congratulation once again,
The photos are great but the description, least to say, is below modest. Imagine every one, Yaj with all his height and bulk, dancing with excitement, beaming with happiness and the boat rocking by the happy assault of the frantic activity of landing the first carp caught by Yaj, while rest of us wondering whether the boat will hold or capsize, :lol: :lol: :lol: , it was angling at its best.
Adding to this when the real of Santosh started singing the happy song of ripping line off the reel, and santosh, pretending to show that he is calm and confident in his panicky state of excitement :lol: :lol: :lol: while fighting the fish, and for a moment, we all missed a heart beat when the line went limp for some time as the fish suddenly turned and started moving towards the boat, and after landing the 7.5 lb mangur with a rod, commenly known in our fishing circle as a tooth pick and the smallest possible chilwa hooks :?: , it was again the burning example of angling at its peak. :D :D
Well, what about me, my fishes are still recovering from the corex effect.. thanx to Gavin. :evil: :lol: :lol:
Well mates, it was one of the best fishing trips I ever had. Not in term of fishes catched but by the standred it brought joy and happy ness to all of us.
Keep it up mates. :D :D :D :D

Ali

I am trying for Shahapur dam & tomorrow will come to know if we can get the permission for fishing & booking for the government guest house at the dam.. should be fun.. :-)

Santosh

Thanks for the vivid imagery Ali :-) :-) :-). You left out the part where the Mrigal was Huge but looked small in comparison to me LOL. It was great fun and can't wait to do it again.
Saiki , Dev, thanks guys. The hook bait was bread paste with condensed milk " milkmaid" and the ground bait was Ali's special mix so I will let him elaborate on it.
Regards,
Yaj.

Hey guys, I sure am missing all the excitement......wish I was back in Bombay.

Congrats on your catch.
I guess fishing is all bout the anticipation & thrill you get while preparing & catching 'that big one'.

Hopefully will be able to go with you guys on a trip in Dec/Jan when I'm down.

Hi santosh,

Let every one hear the story of how you reached home when every one was sleeping and how you kept the mangur in the tub alive and how when your wife found it inspecting your bathroom in the morning...

Well this is your story and you should tell it..

Regards,

Ali.. [smilie=giggle.gif]

:lol: :lol: I reached home at about 1.30 Am & kept the Mangur in small tub with some water to keep him alive .. I almost fell from the bed in the morning when my wife screamed after finding it moving in my bed room.. .. to be honest, I too was scared to handle it.. it looked damn scary.. [smilie=shake.gif] :oops:

Yaj, Congrats on the Mrigal.
I would like to see a 10 ft mako or hammerhead in your grasp-I'm sure they'll be dwarfed! ;)
You boys had fun and here's wishing you more!
Enjoy and keep on doin it
