Fishing Monster Catfish Bungsamran

Fishing Monster Catfish Bungsamran – 15 10 2009

UK angler David Nicholson visited the famous Bungsamran Lake in Bangkok in search of Mekong Catfish.
Fishing from a private bungalow the angler cast out floating bung set-ups loaded with locally produced and flavoured groundbait.

After a slow start the angler finally hooked a Mekong Catfish which proceeded to charge towards the far end of the lake.
A ten minute battle followed which saw the angler skillfully playing the fish back towards the fishing platform.
After netting the fish it was hoisted onto the unhooking mat where it was estimated to weigh 18kg’s.

After returning the Mekong Catfish David hooked and successfully landed a series of small Striped Catfish with relatively low average weights of 8-10kg’s.

Further action was also forthcoming from the Mekong Catfish seeing the angler catching fish after fish on almost every cast and testing his tackle and stamina to their absoloute physical limit.

After a short break for lunch the angler recast his rods towards the centre of the lake in anticipation of yet more monster Mekong Catfish.
It was not long before the angler was dragging yet another Mekong Catfish of 15kg’s towards the waiting landing net.

For the remainder of the afternoon the angler continued to haul in style banking several more good sized Mekong Catfish to an estimated 20kg+.

At the end of the productive days fishing the angler had accounted for a sixteen fish catch consisting of Mekong Catfish and Striped Catfish topped by Mekong Catfish to a very satisfying 20kg’s
