The Doc finally made a pump house call. We reached the place around 7.30 am and were shocked to see no water in the canal. But as we walk around the machine room we were relieved to see and hear the splash of big fish in the holding pool.

Lines were cast with nice pieces of nice chicken liver. And the wait began. After a while a few plugs and spoons and spinners and a frog were made to do a few laps. But not a single one of them could entice the fish.

And then it started. There were a few bites but no hook ups. It was the dam turtles enjoying their sunday brunch of liver masala. Just As I was giving up... and starting to feel a bit bad for dragging people out of bed my rod jerked and the line stiffened. (no comments)

A short and sweet fight later a nice silver muley, around 1.5kgs, was hauled ashore.





A little later the Doc's reel started clicking. i made the mistake of grabbing the rod and giving it a nice jerk to set the hook. It was set but I pumped to hard and lost what could have been an enormous fish or turtle.

Two mistakes in a matter of minutes. The first picking up somebody's rod. And the second not being patient. Apologies doc.

I then caught another small turtle. Doc and I had a tough time getting the hook out of its throat. In the end we had to cut the shank and release the turtle with a bit of the hook still stuck in it. Hope the bugger makes it.

Till the next time.

Hi MK,

Do you fish in the water in that last picture where part of the rod is showing?

yup Bobby!

We fish that water. The big tubes you see to the right are the pump outlets. The pumps are used to move the water to a higher level. They were off for maintenance (yes they actually do that). When they are on there is a big patch of white water. Fishing is good with plugs and spoons then. Right now the fish are trapped. The canal is very low. But you can see a lot of fish and the damn bait robbing turtles.

Susheel_John!
How do you get here. Well you fly from bang. Take a cab to my place. And then we take a two hour drive to the place. Google Earth coordinates 28* 30.51.99N 76* 28.52.83E. I think that's the place but the pix have a very low resolution and there are many small canals in the area. But that's the general direction.

Never eaten a turtle. But I have heard they are 'Heat' giving. Don't need ant ...yet.

But on the serious side. Terrapins are endangered. And there is a law against killing them. Pity coz the pump house could feed an army.

I have caught a couple of turtles Mken, and have had to cut the line as it was impossible to remove the hook. On both occasions the turtle spat out the hook in 15 minutes flat and we put him back in the water.
Gav is right about guts and worms, turtles can't resist them.
Doc sometimes having too many rods out can be a real bother. You catch less and work more. :lol:
Nice mulley there!
Regards
Owen

The muck out of your hair... man tell me about it. My hands still smell of chicken liver. And to think I would fly to mumbai just to dig into a plate of masala liver. Now I will never be able to.

Might go back there tom. But there is a remote possibility that I might just be able to get away to Bhakra for a day. Drive 8 hr - fish 12 hrs - drive back 8 hrs.
