First of all I would like to thank Nirupam bhai for making it possible...He's been very helpful in my learning experience... Thanks Brother ! :D

Learning learning and more learning is what angling is all about...

If you catch a big one at first, don't get cocky... but if you catch a small one or even nothing, don't get upset too...

Someday I will catch a big one... :-)

Hi Daryl,
Thanks man ! ya I got them on a groundbait I prepared... groundbait didnt work but I used them as bait on a hook... they taste almost like the catfish that you get in the market... and are these the ones that grow big and are called "mulleys" ?

Congratulations on your fish Raka! Nice one! Nirupam is a fun person to hangout with, I'm glad you guys had fun! I second these guys are very tasty esp the small ones when deep fried! They are a lot like Mandeli! We'll go together next weekend hopefully.

Congratulation Rakesh, nice butter catfish it is :)

Keep on hooking some more

Happy murrel hunting keep them coming... remember to sustain resources since we have heard a lot that Pune is experiencing the shortage of murrel

Regards
Arish

nice murrel.. get out the scumfrogs or small poppers and you'll be ready to play... most likely that mural is a striata.. as is the case mostly in pune.. they grow max to about 3kilos.. the one above is not big..but a murral none the less.. all the best rakesh... omesh and all the guys out for mural. hope y'all land one soon..

I guess most of us are planning fishing in groups this weekend, why not all of us get together and go....??? Atul might be able to come this Saturday, Nirupam and I are game, Humaid will be planning with Nirupam for the weekend on Thursday, Rakesh might also be able to make it, So why not we all go together, some place different, Nirupam and I were thinking 50 kms from pune to a place close to Bhor. Any other suggestions and inputs on where to go will be nice and as the saying goes the more the merrier so all Pune anglers who are interested in fishing this weekend.... lets get connected and lets go!

Yes !!! lets do it ! Fishing trip cum get together cum roadtrip ! Saturday is good ! and as omesh said " the more the merrier " ! but does anyone know if bhor is a good spot ? because nobody has recce'd the place...all ideas welcome... I was thinking of the indrayani or the bhima as most of the fishes you guys caught were from there...And Guys I am adding a poll in fishing locations, so lets decide on that post...

hi rakesh.. bro go to the hard wear store and ask for the cotton workmans or mason gloves.. they are thin and have good grip and are cheap.. you can wash and reuse too. surgical gloves are not worthit.. irritating to put on and off. and slimey stuff does slip..

Butter fish fried in butter is yum, this does not grow to become mulley; you can get gardening gloves made in Kottayam which have rubberized finger tips. when they are hungry they are greedy guys, they go for Mepps # 4 amd 5.

Nice one Rakesh...Congratulations :)

Pabda is a delicacy in bengal, never fry it hard, smoke them with mustard or curry with onion and tomato paste...yummy :-)
