Post subject:  trophy mulley

the story starts a week ago when me jeen and rahul were fishing a streach of the canal for murrel and mulleys. we caught 5 murrels , 2 mulleys and 2 carnatic carps that day. i was using a lil cleo spoon and jeen was fishing near me from an elevated position. suddenly jeen called "hey doc, a big mulley, maybe a meter long is following your lure". it did that twice but never took the lure. when jeen says big, it has to be big. that thought nagged me for the whole week. so yesterday i went to the canal and found they had released a lot of water. the day was overcast and the water muddy. . perfect time to use a spinner bait. it has two blades spinning in opposite directions producing enough vibrations to knock your fillings off. on the second cast, the mulley took my lure and gave a fantastic fight. it tipped the scales at 14 lbs. it was later released. wow what a day!!

:lol: :lol: :lol: sayed bhai, you could have been a poet. casting while fasting almost killed me. after 4 hrs of prespiration in that humid weather i got so dehydrated, i had to do iftaar in bed. i hope i didnt break my fast by tasting sucsess :lol: :lol: .


@doc i was using berkely 12 lb line. i was lucky the fish was hooked in the corner of the mouth as i wasnt using any leader.

And a DOC visiting a DOC will certainly make us sad :(

Great seeing a Mulley that big again.

I think the best part of this fantastic tale is the fact that you released that mama. Thanks for that.

Post subject: 

thanks guys, i wonder what would be the age of this fish? my guess is 8 yrs because there was no water in the canal before that. or it could be possible the fish migrated from one of the many lakes the canal empties in. views on this would be much appretiated.

aamir

Doc

Some years ago my lake was infested with stunted tilapias. In an attempt at biological control I released 105 mulleys. The longest one was 22 inches and the shortest one was 18 inches long. Exactly 18 months later I was forced to dry out my lake and remove these monstrous creatures as they had long gone passed the tilapia stage - which they decimated - and proceeded to gobble up catlas, rohus etc. of a kg. or more. I recovered 87 fish. The smallest was 4 kg. and the largest was a whopping 10.5 kg - genuinely weighed as they were sold to a fish trader by weight - all in a mere 18 months. I did not weigh the mulleys at the time of release but I do not think an 18 inch mulley weighs more than 500 grams if that. Weigh one the next time you catch a small one and it will give you an idea of the astronomical growth rates that they can achieve given enough food. It is surmised that the remaining 18 fish were lost to cannibalism!

All the best

WOW!!!! :shock: :shock: , the fish put on 10kg in less than 2 yrs? food for thought. i recently came to know that wels catfish puts on 10lbs a year.(river monsters/animal planet. ) thanks for the input lakhyaman :D

Hello Aamir, Sorry I've replied so late.... have been out fishing :D I do know him very well and have fished with him before on the Cauvery. I also spend a couple of days in Limbdi every time I'm in Gujarat.

What a great fish - congrats!
Do you know what the biggest ever Mulley caught is?

Author:  dr aamir bhavnagri [ Wed Feb 16, 2011 6:47 pm ]
Post subject: 

thanks. the igfa world record for mulley is 18.6 kg/41 lbs caught in khao laem dam thailand.

Thanx for Sharing that Aamir,

That record can easily be broken in India/Pakistan I think.... In Pakistan one of the two largest specimens of freshwater fish remaining are the mulley and the goonch..

I have seen a 25 kg+ specimen caught at the river Indus :D

I know the place where one can try his hand on some very big size mulleys. it's around 150 KMS from nagpur(morshi). I will give it a try this march. record is going to break

:D

Interesting...what are you calling a very big size mulley? And how do you know about this place? Thanks! Anyone know about a reservoir in Corbett Nat Park? Apparently that's where to SEE but NOT catch a big one! Anyone seen them there?

Looks like you are confused between Goonch and Mully. I will rather target a Mahseer or a Goonch from Corbett. Beat 3 or 4 will be my preferred choice.

In case you have set your heart to catch a good Mully, try Ganges (where it passes through plains), just after the rain.

Small and medium size mully is common through out India.

Regards,

Ali.

Thanks Ali yes I have my heart set on trying to catch a big Mulley - not small or medium! Do you think there might be big Mulley there after the rain? And when is after the rain? Thanks!

Hi wilson!!!

You just try for small and medium and you will get a big mulley. best of luck [smilie=coolup.gif] [smilie=coolup.gif]
