Hi friedns, I am Himangsu, from chandernagar,(beside kolkata). Its my pleasure to to join Indian Angler forum.
I frequently go to angling in our local lake specially to catch KATLA. Though it wont be fair to post picture at first post, but I cant resist. Here is the best catch in this season(2012).(around 6kg).

Hi biltu, you know well about katla bait(u have posted, and all that things i use). I use all three kind of bait: bread base , sooji base, sattu base. It depends upon the situation at the ticket lake. I got it this time with bread base bait on the first day of pass with 2 hooks. In last season I got 8kg katla with sooji and 6hook setup.
And I read a long discussion about number of hooks. Some people acknowledge their capacity to fish katla with 1-2 hook setup. They dont like to use more than two hook setup because of false hooking, line break and starving and all such things. My point is if a fish breaks the line, the hook(s) may cause infection even if it was only one, and that may cause death. Its all about fishing, single hook is same painful as multiple. And also its all about the technique of fishing, the type of fish u want to fish, the bait u r using. There is no meaning to claim credit for fish with 1 hook.

PS: biltu gave all the recipe of bait, techniques, hooks openly to all forum members and all should thanks biltu. But the so called ustaad anglers who wrote so many things about their fishing, their bait size(small or big), no of hook(single or multipple), their success at other fellow angler's failure etc , are very silent about their recipe of bait. Dear ustaads is it ur secret !!!!?
biltu, keep some secret pls!!

Himanshu i think you are right.... but i only shares the basic 4mula of bait, but also keep some secret recipes..... and u know just some ingredients can change ur fishing experience in a pass lake or pond..... bcoz all of the anglers uses the same basic recipes.....but the most important that how u prepare and use ur bait..... thats the most important thing... and also where u fishing (the character of pond water)

Dear Himangshu,

First up, congrats on the catch.. Respect..

On the second hand, I see you have a few posts to your name but i think its unfair on you passing comments on the so-called ustaads...
If you would spend a few minutes searching the forum, you will find that these "ustaads" have very openly shared not only their baits, groundbaits, rig set up as well as the locations from where they catch their fish, and not to mention also extending a warm welcome to anybody wanting to fish with them, unfortunately this is not the case for the WANNA BE ustaads..

Tight Lines,
GRC

P.S. My baits are an open secret.. Search the forum and you may find them :wink:
