Fish Thailand's Carp & Catfish Species Hunt

For many anglers fishing in Thailand is all about experiencing a good variety of wonderful fish species that can not be found back home. Keith is no exception and opted for a days fishing at Shadow Lake, where the target species were Siamese carp, Chinese bighead carp, Mekong catfish & Striped catfish.

Mekong Spits The Hook!

After a couple of enormous striped catfish over the 40lb mark all went quiet until the next run produced a healthy bend in the rod for Keith. The fish was immediately identified as a Mekong catfish by the long hard run heading out to the middle of the lake. After a ten minute fight and no line gained the Mekong giant catfish managed to spit the hook back at us. The moment was soon forgotten after a few more 35 - 46lb striped catfish had graced the banks.

Chinese Bighead Carp

Keith was over the moon to catch a bighead carp, although not the greatest fighter in the fish world - it is still an absolute joy for any carp angler to catch and admire.

Giant Siamese Carp

Keith's heart was set on a giant Siamese carp which is one of the reasons why we chose Shadow Lake over and above Bungsamran - although smaller there are far greater numbers of Siamese carp in Shadow Lake.

The fish God's were blessing us today as Keith hooked and landed 2 Siamese giant carp, displaying 2 totally different colourations; ending the day perfectly.
