ROHU Fishing

I was on outing with my friends for fishing, we went to a pond and I was standing near the surface of the water with my net. For a long time we dint get any fish, suddenly something struck my net. I tried pulling it but it was too difficult for me, so I called my friends to help me out. We all suspected it to be ROHU fish since it is a strong fish. We had a very long fight with that fish and finally pulled it out. As we all guessed it was ROHU.
It had upper body with dark scales, lower body and a belly golden brown. Its tail and fin were dark brown in color and the pelvic, pectorial and anal fins with red tint.
Finally we had a satisfaction of that day of our fishing. It was great!!!

Fishing with Live Prawns

When i go for fishing i my primary bait is live white prawns. Most of the coastal rock fishes like live prawns. Primary catch are Barramundi, Red Snapper and some fishes which i know only by the tamil name. Can anyone tell me the English names for fishes like Mattivan, Minnal, Othadi, Naikadichan etc.
