Up North, we get the following:
Channa orientalis (max size caught 14cms, have heard of a couple of cms more). Matched it scale for scale and fin ray for ray. No ocellus (eye spot) on adults but my 6cm juveniles did have them near the tail end of the dorsal fin.
Channa striatus: biggest seen in the fish market around a foot long. Not as colourful as the above.
Channa leucopunctatus: in '04, a local fisherman caught one on legered worm, 10.780kgs (digital scales at the shop), 2kms above Okhla in Delhi (unbelievable, but the fish breathes air direct, hence survive the pollution. Oh yes, the oral cavity was Black. Toxins?). Have caught a 17" specimen from the Chambal near Ranthamhore on a quickie trip. Pretty fish.

Okay, Ved Shenag's big murrel and all that, how many of us would actually drop a big murrel back just because it impressed you so much?

Cheers,
V.

Owen,
my terminal tackle developed a strange rash after a 3 hr session in those waters :lol: ... the previous post with Dev and his cat? thats the place we call 'toxic greens' [off the NH24, close to a burning ghat.]
Sure, he must have been a mutant, or no way to survive in those waters.
Best,
Axx

Hi Guys,
Is channa really an awesome fighter as its made out to be? My only experience had them being reeled in rather docilely, after the initial hookset/flurry.Yes, they are good at spitting out the bait-If I hadnt seen it, I would have called the next guy who said it, a liar.
Best
Axx

Don't go eating any of those fish eljefe, you guys can honestly pratice the catch and release program at such locations, and give those fish a medal for surviving against all odds.

Jefe,

You should've sterilised your gear in some hyper-mega-nanodetailed sterilizer. I threw the line away and Harpic'd the rod, reel and rings.

Forget the medal for the murrel, hand one to our man here for dipping his tackle in 'Toxic Greens'. Ghat, eh? Wonder what goonch lives there...

Vedan,
I gave away the line used and the terminal tackle to the bearded guy in the pics who helped us land the fish.I shall sterilise the rods with some surgical cleaner-AGAIN-all i did was wash em with RIN.
Shoot, when I got a fishing partner in Dev, we were desperate to find a body of water and when we found this barrage on the Hindon, not 6km from Noida-NH24, it was fun...then when we sat down and looked around, [one tends to notice the fine details after the initial euphoria] thats when reality sunk in...no more prizes, one catch there was enough!

OB- the cats were very honestly released...
I read a lot about the fighting spirit of the snakehead -a thai web site-made it out to be the tiger of the freshwater fish-But I've seen a 9kg Rohu offer a full and glorious sight and heard the reel sing.Sorry to wax forth lyrically...
PS-will be in Bangalore 30-1st will call you
Best
Axx
