UK based anglers Dave & Karl Pearson embarked on a father & son day's fishing in Bangkok at Bungsamran Lake. After seeing Extreme Fishing Thailand with Robson Green on TV, along with a lot of other media surrounding the fantastic fishing in Thailand; they booked a four day fishing trip with Fish Thailand.

Today was day one of their session and the game plan being to have a 'welcome to Thailand' action day's Mekong catfish fishing. Just a few minutes into the day both Karl & Dave found themselves bending into the power of the famous Mekong catfish, landing one after another averaging 45lb. To their delight everything they had seen and read about Bungsamran was absolutely true, and then Karl struck gold as he bent into a fight he will never forget.

150 yards of line stripped from the reel before the fish was turned just before reaching the safety of the snags. Another half an hour passed before the fish finally surfaced to a rather exhausted and relieved Karl - in the net lay a 150lb Mekong catfish.

The total weight of all 22 fish combined was 1007lb - an incredible amount of big fish in just a single day's fishing.
