 it  belongs  to  the  eel  family  AFAIK  in  terms  of  the  description,  sharing  my  knowledge  based  on  my  angling  experiences   Smile  
 called  as  TAMBU  by  people  at  godavari(maharashtra,  nanded)  thats  the  place  where  i  had  caught  it  on  hook(bait  was  a  live  frog),  its  mostly  found  in  godavari  and  there  are  quite  a  few  sub  species,
 the  colors  range  from  black  as  shown  above  to  almost  dark  orange,  i  think  its  a  sub-species
 they  grow  quite  large,  the  one  i  caught  was  about  3.5ft  weighin  about  8kgs,  they  wont  hesitate  to  attack  people,  its  a  monster  fish,
 its  a  predator,  predating  on  fish  even  of  its  own  size,
 native  people  pls  shed  more  light  on  the  name  of  this  species

 @  Mudassir:  Wowww  that  you  angled  a  3.5  foot  fish  and  it  must  be  widespread  as  you  said  you  found  it  in  Godavari  because  this  one  was  bought  from  a  fish  market  in  Calicut,  Kerala
 
 @  Madhu:  Thanks  for  the  ID
 
 @  Yogesh  &  Hrishi:  Thank  you  the  shot  credit  goes  to  my  friend   Chuckle  
 
 @  Inigo:  Yes,  as  Mudassir  says  he'd  angled  a  3.5  foot  fish!
 
 @  Humaid:  Indeed  it  does   Very Happy  
 
 @  Batman:  Ermmm  I  guess  so,  let  the  native  gurus  like  Madhu  shed  light  on  the  common  name
