Hello All,

I had done some coarse fishing (2 pounder is my record :oops: ), always wanted to know how would it be to catch something on a artificial bait (spinner, lure etc). I had been to some places where murrel action was good but i didn't have the know how or tricks of the trade. I used to cast, retrieve for abt 4 times and if there is no action remove the spinner and cast for carps (that's just a reason to have a beer, smoke and relax). I always used to bug viper (my guru in spinning) to teach me how to spin for murrels.

So finally i got a call yesterday evening from viper saying that he was planning to go to Manchanbele dam, Immediately took a day's off, Started today morning (30-04-2010) at abt 6.00am and reached the place by 7.15am and started spinning. Half an hour no action then viper (binu) got a couple of hits and landed a 1.5 kg murrel. i was pissed of as i was not even getting any hits.

Half an hour more and i was retrieving then i felt a light jerk and when the spinner came to the bank there was a small murrel (1 pound) at the end of the line. i was happy as at least i opened my account on murrel territory.




There has to be a sad part in any good story right? I was using a small rod and probably there was a damage in one of the guides i guess as the line was damaged a little bit. i ignored that :oops: and cast the spinner there was a hit and the same instant the line broke.


The i changed to another rod and started spinning and got a huge hit :D . My reel started screaming.Played the murrel for 5 mins and then it surfaced :shock: It was one hell of a murrel. I was ecstatic on landing such a beauty.It weighed 11.4 pounds. I think its pretty good for a first time at spinning for murrels.

Manish - IF you dont have a spinner, then use the small fish (putia).. All you need to do is run the hook through the back of the fish and cast out.. Retrieve slow.... Alternatively, you can run the hook through the base of the tail. Works just as well...
