Big Thai stingray Mae Klong River Thailand

Big Thai stingray Mae Klong River Thailand – 29 08 2015

The final day of Martins Thailand fishing holiday saw him once again fishing the Mae Klong River in Samut Songkran.
Baits were quickly placed across a wide area in readiness of more action from the Giant freshwater stingrays.
After fishing for several hours without any action the team moved to another previously productive fishing area.
Within only thirty minutes of placing the baits one of the baits was picked up by a large stingray.
On this occasion the Giant freshwater stingray powered off on an unstoppable run stripping line from the multiplier at a rate of knots.
Martin responded by winding down into the unseen stingray and regaining some line back onto the reel.
With the heavy stand up fishing rod bent over almost double the angler began to gain some ground.
The Giant freshwater stingray clamped onto the bottom on several occasions in the course of the next forty minutes before Martin finally gained control of the battle and began to bring the stingray up to the waiting net.
The Giant freshwater stingray was measured at a width of 1.7m and was estimated to weigh 170kg’s.
Martin continued fishing for the next few hours but failed to land any further Giant freshwater stingrays.
