50 Kg Giant Siamese Carp Caught fishing in Bangkok Thailand – 16 01 2006
Boy and Rick travelled to Bungsamran Lake in Bangkok. Fishing a prebaited swim Rick caught a number of small Striped catfish and Mekong catfish before hooking an extremely large Giant Siamese Carp which angrily powered off towards the centre of the lake!
An arm aching thirty minute battle commenced which saw the giant carp enter the snags briefly requiring the rod to be passed around one of the underwater supports to regain contact with the fish! After a few more hairy moments the fish was netted by Boy. The fish was weighed at a weight of 49 kg and photographed.
