Nice fish there!

That murrel looks different from the regular spotted ones that we catch.

Anyone?

Hence; Early to bed and early to rise makes a murral hooked, fillet, and fried

Khewl !

We used to get up at 3:30 reach friends home at 4:00-4:15. Reach the spot as early as possible (100-110km).

I came back 3 time without any catch.

My friends, with whom i go for fishing and a few who are known to me and off course all IA's who directly or indirectly, have always encouraged me to keep trying and not to give up.

Fishing is certainly a skill. We need to keep improving it day by day. I keep learning this all the time i go out for fishing.

Success was attracting mural for series of 3 strikes. Though i could land only 1 out of three strikes.

Finebaba: Home made spoon not available for sale. We need to get it done.

Thanks for all your encouragement guys !

Regards
Salim

Dear Friends,

These fishes were caught using the same spoon. Size is around 1.5kg & above..

One my friends Mr. Iqbal, the same person who caught the pink carp (ref: images sections : Pin Carp) has been using the homemade spoon since 1983.

This spoon bait has never disappointed any one of us in our circle.

Hi Salim,
If you don't mind could you post the pics of the spoon.. I am also the DIY kind but the only difference is that my crank baits and spoons don't catch any fish!!.Hahaha...

Thank you all guys !

Anoop Boleto Finebaba:

Being little proactive is not a bad idea right !

You asked for pic so kept them, then i thought why not get you a spoon.

Anyways.

Thanks again,

Hi Salim,

Your thoughts on Fishing are very true. Thanks for sharing pictures of those very nice Murrels.

If Murrels go that big in Bhimeshwari then the Mullies too must be very big in that lake. Have you caught a Mulli of around 5 kg to 10 kg there?

Regards,


Arun

Arun Mohile: Mulleys are certainly there in Bheemeshwari.

You see most of the anglers come to Bheemeshwari to catch only Masheer. When they find time specially in Early morning/evening they go for murral.

At bheemeshwari people are after masheers /murral not for Mulleys. I think bheemeshwari/complete river has plenty of mulleys and of size upto 15kg and above..

Around Hyderabad, we caught countless...mulleys of size 5 kg+ & few upto 8-9kg. These fishes were caught at Nizam Sagar, Pocharam, Manjira & Offcourse Kotepally near Vikarabad. We could not land many big fishes of size more than 10-12kg. I am trying to tell you the success of my spoon not me.

You can try this spoon. It works great !

Finebaba: Thats the best design. Rest it depends on how you retrieve speed & depth & :?:

Thanks Mr. Salim for your reply to my queri. It is very interesting to know that Bhimeshwari holds Mahseer, Murals and Big Mulleys too. BTW how far is Bhimeshwari from Hyderabad?

I come to Hyderabad on work sometimes and stay in Miyapur area.

Regards,


Arun

Hey Arun:

Bheemeshwari is not near Hyderabad, it is close to Bangalore.

******* Any mention of commercial operators not affiliated to IA will lead to a ban, read the rules *******

Hello Michael.

Tea spoon of 14 guage. Use any hook that does not exceed the size of the spoon. Size 1 would do.

Regards,Salim
