Hey Guys ,

can someone suggest good places for catfishing around bangalore?

Hi hookedup,

I request you to please remove any pictures of dead fish from your post. Kindly read the rules mainly rule #13.

Regards,
Omesh

well nice argument there kryptoz and there are many more valid arguments when it comes to this subject. The main reason this rule has been implemented is because angling is a sport and anglers must look at fish as nothing more than the sheer sporting pleasure it provides. This said any fish even tilapia for that matter which is considered a big time pest must be pictured and posted carefully. The rule is not what your doing, whatever it is you are doing is for you to be the judge of that. However as per forum rules please respect every fish even if its a pest as tomorrow we dont want fishing to be considered as hunting where bans are imposed everywhere, its already happening in some states where there is conflict between the fisheries department, the licensing to fish and the forest department. There are 300 anglers on this site, more not on the site and far too many local handliners and netters. We need to conserve and be overcautious with everything we do related to fishing otherwise we might not be in a position to enjoy the sport for long.

@ hookedup! I feel some of the pictures the fish are dead, I see you have sent me a pm which assures they were relaeased and the fish were not dead when pictured, kindly post the assurance here for all the members to see.

Regards,
Omesh

here in Nagaland we call them Thailand Mangur and they grow up to 5-6kgs or even more........these fishes are an introduced species amd not native but very productive for the fishery industry.

As a clarification - Magur ie African Catfish should not be released back, they are not a native species. Gory pics are to be avoided on the forum regardless of species.

Exactly, in our local they are called as Hybrid Mangur and very dangerous species... they eat everything (everything means EVERYTHING!!!!)...

I have seen 16 kg mangur in our local lake....

Happy Fishing....

True..These brutes eat ANYTHING. I have heard of a Cast Netter who waded into waist-deep water in a pond here in Assam, just to get a nasty bite on his "little thing" by a 4kg African cat. He held the owners of the pond responsible, since he was not cautioned about the presence of the devils. :lol:
