'I Want To Catch A BIG Catfish!'
The above was the specific request of globe trotting specimen big game fisherman Andy Stein, from the USA. Andy has caught Black Marlin to 1012lb and fished all over the world - some times from helicopters in search of good fishing.
30 - 40 - 50 - 60 - 82lb!
A gradual increase in size of the Mekong giant catfish today saw Andy working hard to tame these awsome fish - and with well over 20 fish caught to 60lb by mid-afternoon; it was about time for a beast.
Surely enough Fish Thailand guides produced the fish Andy was after - it took a stamina-draining 30 minutes to land all 83lb of Mekong giant catfish from Bungsamran Lake in Bangkok.
Mission complete - Andy had caught what he had come for fishing in Thailand and went home satisfied with his accomplishment.
