Hi All

After a long wait ,had managed to get Pics of 21kg/46lbs Red tail Singhara Catfish :D (Average size as per the Locals who Have caught Fishes up to 59 Kgs)

This specimen was caught by my Friend Peter from Bhadra on 19th of this Month in the evening Time using Handline, was originally fishing for Mahseer with Chilwa ,took 45 min to pull it out ,,, after 30 min the fish managed to get itself into a big underwater hole :? ,peter had to get to 25 ft underwater in with a stick to poke it out of its Hiding hole,

Have doubt :? if its the same kind of fish that was posted by me in this thread caught by the same person

( http://www.indianangler.com/viewtopic.p ... t=singhara ),

as the size of its head is quite Broad as compared to the lean head of a Singhara ,please let me know which species this belong to,

will be going there next week to try my luck ,will keep u posted.


Sharing some of the Pics

A smaller one :D

The big guy is not a singhara!!! the small guys are though.... Largest documented singhara caught weighed in at about 20 lbs... What you have is similar to what we call the Taingra up north... the taingra is tiny though... I think you have what Bops once described to me as a 'butter cat'... dunno the real name though... better luck with on of the cauvery guys though!!!

Cheers,

IG

That's a really splendid looking catch. I remember catching a smaller specimen at the linganamakki dam overflow ten years ago. The scientific name of this cat fish is most likely Hemibagrus punctatus or possibly a Hemibagrus wyckioides

The photographs of the live fish are much nicer.
At least I can pretend that it went back alive.

With a billion people, limited fishable freshwater and a growing economy making rods and nets more affordable, every large native fish removed is a nail in the coffin of Indian angling.

Thanks for the Comments Guys....:D

The Cat was Caught from Bhadra River near the Bhadra Tiger Reserve in Chikmagalur Dist,Karnataka
as rightly suggested By Bops & Looking at the Pics ,seems like Hemibagrus punctatus (Asian redtail catfish)

It looks like an Asian Catfish (hemibagrus wyckioides) and I have also caught a very small specimen from Bhandardhara. They can grow up to 130 cm./80 Kg. There is no IGFA record for this fish so guys, catch one and register it for world record. Any size will do. :wink: :lol: :lol:

Regards,

Ali.

Great catch! Viper,

I had a feeling you'd go back to Badhra this monsoon I had seen the picture of your last catch at Bhadra. By the way is this fish found in Cauvery? I wonder how the 59-80kg fish look.

Apologies for resurrecting this old thread but I wanted to point out H. wyckioides is not found in India but from Thailand.

Hemibagrus punctata though found in India is very much smaller and also found in rivers of Karnataka.

The fish in the pics was described as Mystus krishnensis but is now known as Hemibagrus maydelli and is the the largest of this genus.

I would like to congratulate though quite late in the day the angler who got this fantastic specimen. Great job.
