Caught a few of these catfish/magur in a lake near Hyderabad over a number of trips . Decent sizes of upto 7-8 pounds. Red tinted fins are a predominant feature, and overall coloration somewhat lighter than the typical dark colouration of common magurs. Always got them on wheat/ragi flour- never a bite from them on earthworms or chicken innards. Photo quality somewhat bad- I used my cellphone camera.

Its a good looking fish, I wonder which lake near Hyd did you venture out..also getting a strike of a cat fish on Atta/ Ragi is equally amazing.
