75 kg Stingray caught stingray fishing Thailand Maeklong River – 27 09 2007
Boy guided two Singapore clients to the Maeklong River in Samut Songkran province to the Area 51 stretch of the river fishing for Giant freshwater stingrays.
With nightfall approaching the anglers received an extremely tentative take whilst stingray fishing and on connecting with the unseen monster the anglers began an epic one and a half hour battle which saw them both tested to their physical limits!
The unseen monster some twenty metres below doggedly hugged the riverbed and angrily powered off into the main flow of the river on numerous occasions. After what seemed like an eternity an extremely agitated Giant Freshwater Stingray surfaced alongside the angler?s boat dangerously whipping its tail against the side of the boat!
The extra terrestrial monster was bravely secured by Boy and Sa and quickly transported to a nearby bridge where photographs were taken. The monster Giant freshwater stingray was identified as being a large male and released safely back to its watery home. A weight of 75-80 kgs was placed on the monster fish
