200 kg Giant Stingray Maeklong River December 2016

UK angler Michael and Tim Webb from Palm Tree lagoon land a monster 200 kg Giant freshwater Stingray.

Tim from Palm Tree and UK angler Michael returned to the Maeklong River once again in search of Giant freshwater stingrays.
With the river carrying a lot of colour from the recent rains conditions looked far from ideal.
After positioning baits at various intervals across the river the anglers waited for the arrival of the stingrays.
Several hours passed without any action before one of the baits was finally picked up.
The heavy 130 lb class rod was soon bent double as a large Giant freshwater stingray slowly pulled the boat downstream.
With the rod creaking under the strain it soon became evident that the fish was a considerable size.
An epic battle followed which lasted for well over an hour which saw the Giant freshwater stingray embarking on a series of unstoppable runs interspersed with prolonged periods clamped onto the riverbed.
With the battle already exceeding one hour the anglers started getting line back onto the reel. Continued pressure exerted from directly above the fish finally took its toll and saw the stingray brought off the bottom.
Several fraught moments followed before the Giant freshwater stingray was eventually netted and carefully secured alongside the boat.
After transporting the fish to the riverside the stingray was observed to be a female with a width of 1.8 m’s and was estimated to weigh 190-200 kg’s.
The Giant freshwater stingray was quickly photographed and then after a short period for recovery was released back into the river.
