Hi all, I'm about to buy some bulk spools of Berkley Big Game in 40lbs strain to bring out with me next Feb. But it comes in two colours:
clear or green

So which should I buy?

I'm thinking clear....... :?

I have used green monofil for Mahseer spinning in north and it always appeared to work fine.

Steve,

Sorry for late reply; just got back from long hols.

The mahseer in Malaysia live in upstream jungle river stretches. That means rocks and lots of woody snags: brush piles, logs etc. So, whilst the rivers and fish here are smaller, the challenge is just as great.

Here's a thought: during the dry season when water is clear, the Malaysian mahseer are at the deepest, darkest troughs in the main channel of the pool. The mahseer gets the food at leisure (the current is slower, even though it's in the main channel) and still feels secure from predators (read prime lie).

However, during the rainy season when water's murky and the main channel's faster than the Motor GP, the mahseer are usually found in the shallows, close to the breaklines. Fishing is actually easier: the fish are away from those darn snags, and they dont run far (I suppose they dont know where they are going!).

The same applies for fishing at dusk or at night. The fish most probably will move to the shallower swims, either close to the breaklines of the main channel or at the calmer tailwater.

Rather a different scene from the deccan mahseer JB, who under flood conditions don't touch your bait, and there is just no sign of their presence. Probably taking refuge behind boulders in the shallows, but just don't take an anglers bait.

The good old books reccomend spoons and live bait etc, but the fact is that under such conditions you cannot reach likely spots on a river like the Kaveri, nor will you be able to hold your bait in the best possible position, with even huge amounts of lead. If it does hold bottom, it's a snag from which you are unlikely to recover your tackle.

Only sensible thing to do under these conditions iS pack away your big rods, find some earthworms, and head for the carp and wallago attu spots near the banks.
Even after the water clears and levels go down to almost normal, the same scene can continue till the water warms up suffeciently during the day.
But then there are always a few exceptions, and exceptional days that we all pray for.
Regards
Owen

Hey JB,
Bheemeshwari seems to fare better in high water than any other place that i know of on the Kaveri. And you are a lucky one mate to do that on the 1st day.
Weather is pretty gloomy right now over here, and there has been a few showers too. Cyclonic weather has been around for the last week in TN and Andhra, let's hope it isin't going to be like last year.
Regards
Owen

Yup, you're right! Come to think of it, my two biggest mahseer came from the Bhimeshwari stretch in high/turbid water. And I'm sure luck has a part to play with it too, considering the conditions. Some donations to Thambi at Haira also helps :wink:

OB,

They sell live crabs in Bangalure? :shock: Great! I think crabs are almost extinct in the Cauvery, you know why! We've had great fun hooking mahseer on crabs, especially in the fast waters, but finding the bait is something else.

I brought some Berkley plastic crabs (Gulp!, I think) and tried them last November. These have impregnated smell in them. Alas, the water was too high and turbid, so I got zilch. But I still think it's worth a try in the rapids. Now I'm searching for the right plastic loach (chilwa)! Who cares if the gillies laugh at me. They laughed when we used spinnerbait for murrel, but took their hats off when we caught twelve!

Ahh, you made donations to him too, but did he bless your coracle? 8) He did? Hmm, must be you, then! :-)
