REPORT

Indian Carp Fishing in Thailand

UK based angler Peter Warren came on a fishing holiday in Thailand with The Fish Thailand Team. Out of nine days fishing, two were set for jungle carp fishing at Khao Laem Dam set in the Kanachanaburi province of Thailand.

Two swims were baited with a total of 400kg of groundbait over ten days leading up to the fishing. The problem was a strong storm blew in the night before arrival deeming it too dangerous to get out to our baited area by boat - luckily a reserve swim had been baited in a sheltered bay.

Plenty of fish got their heads down throughout the first day's fishing resulting in Indian carp (rohu) to 22lb (10kg).

The second day came around and the wind had died allowing fishing to commence from one of the further baited areas. A short session with the echo-sounder revealed a mental image of the dam bed. A good mix of mrigal & black carp species kept the day busy.

Perhaps one of the best 'face pulling' pictures was taken during this carp fishing session, see jokes section for a good giggle.

Follow the rest of Peter's Thailand fishing holiday to IT Lake, coming shortly......
