This fish was caught on Shimano fx 4000 loaded with 0.30mm line without leader. The trible was hooked in the jaw and the spoon was outside.

It gave a remarkable fight.

Cheers
Salim

Great Catch!! Congratulations. Your hit rate is fantastic.

Now that you have shown us how to make the spoon you have got competition. I have posted my catch report.

What a lovely catch, well done! Is this the biggest one on record I wonder? I would love to have a go at catching a big Mulley myself but have heard they're very rare.

Hi Wilson,

Here in India you'll find lot of them.

They prefer deep and rocky places and take spoons.

If you come to India you can fill you icebox.

Cheers
Salim

The big guys are pretty rare... and to add to that, we have people wanting to and suggesting to... fill iceboxes, which is only going to speed up the process, so ....YOU BETTER HURRY EH !!! And while you are here, maybe you could be kind enough to release these really large mamas.

Of course - catch and release. I just want to see a big one and put it back. I'm not sure a big one really exists - I'm talking at least 20kg...

20kg might be a bit of an ask and you would have to get into some seriously uncharted territory, which in this country of a billion people is extremely difficult. But, you will never know until you try.

These guys basically inhabit all warm fresh waters in the country. That would basically cut out the mountains. Use google maps and try to ascertain the remotest water locations in the country - lake/rivers/dams.... and you might have the fish.

4 months back a person caught 22 kg wallago in a lake near Hyderabad.

This was caught on a bait.

You get huge catfishes in Godavari belt. I can say upto 30-40kg or maybe more.

Cheers
Salim

If you have a water where the fish are surviving to a good size then it seems that there are much bigger fish to be caught.
These beasties are said to reach a max size of 2.4m (some reports say 3m) but the [url]rod and line record is a little lighter.

I doubt that a fish of 2m+ is going to take a small spoon though. Then again, German angers do target large Wells catfish on lures.
