A boy becomes a man at certain age... likewise I became an angler from a loser today... well not like an Expert angler... just a beginner...but still learned a lot from my first catch... :D


He was still alive when I took him home ! poured some water and looked like he came back to life or something !!!

He was eye balling me ! creepy !

thanks arish ! I wanted my first catch to be anything other than tilapia, but There's isnt anything other than Tilapia in the waters ! :(

Hi surf.angler,
Dont know man, havent tried on spinners. but one thing is worth noticing that I caught this one when I was reeling in ! It followed the bait and striked when I stopped reeling !

Thanks Iftekhar !

Congrats buddy!!
These are moments that you'll never forget.
The 'tug'and then the 'reeling in', till finally the 'catch' is exposed at the end of the line......... i still remember those few minutes even to this day.
Good luck ahead!

Hi mayur,

It was more like Cursing at first, then patience, tug, and pulling it out of water with a jerk, excitement with a little bit of cursing... and then finally satisfaction... :D

thanks bro !
