A quiet weekend at Wasi lakes, for two, turned out to be a foursome with Riaz and Prakash joining Bobee and myself on the second day.
On the way, we stopped off at New York to recharge our batteries and laugh our heads off.



The first morning Bobee and i fished the small lake and i had a couple of 4-5Kg Rohu's that put in a spirited fight. We had nothing else in the second session, only a surprise call from Riaz, that he and Prakash were coming to join us. They very considerately landed up at 12 pm that night, loaded with Biriyani. We slept very little that night, as we planned to tackle the grass carp the next day.

We had been talking about this for a long time, and the following morning we took one last look to see what the carp were feeding on, and Bobee had a go trying several rigs and baits, which included berries, banana stems, weeds etc.

The grass carp were very choosy, and extremely shy. It seemed the the best bet was to use the weeds growing in the lake as bait.
After lunch, Riaz and i watched the carp cruising the channel, and Riaz decided he would use braid with a bottle cork as a float about a foot from a size 4 hook.

He took some fresh green long stemmed weeds from the lake that Bobee called "Valaneria", we called it Bobbee's googly.

The hook was placed in the middle of a sheaf of weeds, and kept in place with braid wound around it. No weight was used.
He floated the bait down the channel, and it must have been on his third cast, that the monster rose from the depths, and took a couple of munches. On the 3rd munch, Riaz struck into the fish that took off down the channel.

Although i was fishing just 10 feet from Riaz, he did not tell me that he was into a grass carp, until he was really sure.
To tell the truth, there were grass carp, big rohu and even Tilapia feeding on weeds that afternoon, which was a shock to us.

The carp wasn't a big fighter, but came into the landing net with great difficulty because of its size. We could not believe our eyes when we saw the fish.

It weighed in at 19Kgs (42 Lbs). We realized that he was an old fish because of the way the fins were frayed, and some even broken.

Tackle used, 30-100gm C.W 2.7 meter "Rowen" rod
50lb braid loaded on a 4000 "Salt striker"

Bobbee had a couple of Murral from Forbes, while I had 3 Rohu's, a Calabans and two Carnatic carp that evening, but Riaz's Carp took the cake!

what a fish! I have been trying to catch one of them at Bhakra for eons now. Will try the cork rig with a bit of weed for sure. Now only if I can find what they are feeding on.

Great going guys

Thats a beauty and a monster of a Fish.

Owen/ Riaz,

We also just recently had a grass carp fiasco, but the grass we caught played hell into us. WHat do u think is the difference. Mobin can confirm this as he caught the big one on our trip, a meager 4kg +/- compared to this monster.
