It was a real long time since we had a good run with the fish at Powai. But, that was till last weekend (9th & 10th July). The weekend witnessed some good showers and the lake was filled up to the brim, our hopes were equally high.

Saturday, met up with Ali bhai on his machan at 11am (late as usual). He had made 2 new recipes for ground bait - a stinky bait to attract the fish and an edible bait soaked in some pungent homemade rice wine. 20 mins after ground baiting we could sense fish movement in the zone.

There were more new things we were trying that day, a bread pellet maker (simple unit crafted out of a ball pen- call Alibhia for details) and a dip for the feeder masala. First thing; we cast out 3 rods with the regular feeder baits, and on one side near the greens Ali bhai put his goli rod with bread pellets. Nibbles started on the first cast. A couple of cast’s later Ali bhai like a good teacher handed me the rod and as luck would have it I got a strike (a 3kg hybrid). Then all of a sudden the place was dead… no more bites

Refilled the feeders, dipped them in the new dip (slurry) and cast them out… within mins Ali bhia got the first run a Mirgal then another… this time a tilapia. Then as luck would have it, I got a run but goofed up and lost the fish. Promptly I was called back inside the machan for some thoughtful diagnosis of my mistakes. After some pep talk I was back there and this time did a better job and managed another hybrid. The ground bait and magic dip was having its effect and we managed to catch 4 more fish before we called it a day.
Day 1- score
Alibhai- 1 Mirgal, 1 Tilapia and 1 Hybrid – missed out on 1 run
Me (Ashish)- 4 hybrids – missed out on 1 run
Day 2- After 7 fish landed on Saturday we were eager to check if it was just a lucky day or the new feeder baits were liked by the fish in Powai. Sunday morning, my 8 yrs old son insisted to join in and we managed to get on the machan by 12 noon Alibhai was already there and had done the ground baiting. Another friend of his (Raj) joined us. We packed the feeders with bait and dipped it in the freshly prepared magic dip… within mins Alibhai got a run and handed the rod to my son who in his excitement managed to lose the fish. And while the rod was being retrieved, I got a run this time my son managed to bring in the fish (a small khavli). Both the rods were put out again and over the next 2 hrs we landed 5 hybrids and missed out on 3.
Day 2- score
Alibhai – 2 Hybrids – missed out on 2 runs
Me (Ashish)- 3 hybrids – missed out on 1 run

We packed up day 2 after Alibhai said ‘Ashish chalo yaar… for the first time I am tired catching fish’

Final tally- 13 landed and 5 missed

Now I'm cursing myself for leaving early :(

But great catches overall Alibhai & Ashish ...

Ashish - It looks like you have achieved inner peace :) :)

Cheers
Darius
