Fishing Bangkok Mekong Catfish

Fishing Bangkok Mekong Catfish – 05 10 2009

UK angler James visited Bungsamran Lake in Bangkok in search of Mekong Catfish and other monster fish.
Fishing from the public walkway the UK anglers tackled up with sliding float set-ups with cage feeders and super sharp Owner hooks.
Locally produced groundbait was moulded onto the feeder before being launched into the central part of the lake.

After literally a matter of seconds the float was violently pulled across the surface as the first fish of the day charged off with the bait.
A dogged ten minute battle ensued which saw the fish making a series of powerful runs towards the far end of the lake.

Continued pumping with the rod soon had the fish within netting range where it was quickly netted and hoisted onto the unhooking mat.
The Mekong Catfish was estimated to weigh 15kg’s and was released after few trophy shots.

After recasting the rods out into the lake the fish soon homed in on the flavoured groundbait with several more catfish falling for the angler’s tactics in the following hour to 16kg’s.

The days fishing continued in much the same fashion seeing the angler catching Mekong Catfish and Striped Catfish at regular intervals throughout the afternoon.

At the end of the day James had managed to amass a twenty fish capture during his short fishing session at the lake with Mekong Catfish to an estimated 16kg’s in addition to Striped Catfish to 10kg’s falling to his highly effective float fishing tactics
