Fishing in Thailand
Nick & Kenny sampled the magic of big fish fishing in Thailand today with The Fish Thailand Team.
Fishing in Thailand - Bung sam lan
The Mekong catfish (native to Thailand) were showing early in the day and fed throughout; making for a great fishing trip. Fishing Bung sam lan lake in Bangkok is a notorious big fish fishing venue in Thailand, where the majority of anglers break their PB's.
Nick & Kenny were keeping a written record of all the fish caught and their weights. Until 4p.m they were both on about par with each other, with both of them each having landed a 49lb Mekong catfish amongst many other 30's and 40's.
Then Nick hooked into one of the Bungsamlan giant catfish - the long and steady run from this fish had Nick straining behing the rod and managed to turn the fish with great skill. The fight was far from over and by the end of an intense 45 minute fight, Nick had subdued the beast ready for Fish Thailand guide - Alley to slip the net over its head. The fish was beaten and so was Nick, his face was an expression of pure relief that he had won this fight & most of all that it was finally over.
25 Fish For 796lb
This was the talley for the day - not many venues in the world can boast this catch rate which illustrates the unbeatable big fish fishing in Thailand with the Fish Thailand Team.
