Greetings!

I haven't been fishing much lately with a lot of things going on, however managed to get out on Sunday for a little freshwater action. Me and my friend Durvesh hopped on a cab and went to this place for Snakehead and maybe Mahseer. I have never caught a Mahseer before and I was very exited to catch my fist one on a Squidgy lure. I also managed to land a Snakehead on an artificial frog.

Will be fishing more in the upcoming months and hope that I could come up with more reports.

There seems to be some issue with posting pics from my computer, however here's a little video I made....

Hello Maruthu,

I am so glad that you caught your first mahseer! And that too on the Squidgy....... we can chalk up another species of fish that this soft plastic has caught.

That stretch of water had a severe flow to it and you did well to land that fish.

Good luck on your future trips and we look forward to your reports.

Thank you Kingfish!

Yes, that squidgy lure is a bomb! Cuts through the water due to the shape of the belly and sinks faster with all the weight in it, which is great for working the lure faster during the day. I feel like some of the old school soft plastics like the storm lure, were designed to be fished slower in the dark. Whatever may be the case, I love the squidgy lures. Thank you for the squidgies!

Cheers!
Maruthu
