This is my first post on IA, so I hope the pictures get uploaded properly.
Caught this 15 lb. Mahseer ten minutes before packing up to leave for Bangalore at Doddamakali. Even though it was a small one, I almost lost it in the rocks.
Fishing was pretty good. Missed about a twenty pounder in the rocks a few feet in front of me at another pool.
I also had a few questions and I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me out;
1. Do you need a license to fish at the Powai lake? And, what's the best time to go there?
2. I caught this small carp while fishing in a small lake in Chikmagalur. Used balls of wheat as bait. Is it a Common Carp or a Grass Carp?
3. Being just 17, none of the gilles at any of the camps take me as a serious angler, and when I ask for chilwa, they usually say it's not available. Any suggestions on how I can get some the next time I hit the river?
Thanks in advance for your replies.
