Hello All
Caught two mahseers using johnson spoons and mepps trout spinners at bhimtal.
We could see the mahseers in groups on the surface but the bites were low. Both were around the same size, a little below 1kg.

We have found a place near Delhi also, so will be fishing there soon.

I might be wrong...maybe i really am not that good at recognizing a mahseer...or maybe the pic angle is making it seem so....but the mouth of the fish is nothing like a mahseer. Are you sure it isnt a hybrid of somesort ?

These were mahseers.. we even went to the fisheries department next to the lake where we saw how they were breeding for maintaining the population of the fishes in these lakes. Taking out eggs then hatching them. They keep in tanks until they reach a particular size and then they release these into the lakes. The trip was about fishing but got to learn a lot about these species.
