Freshwater fishing stingrays Maeklong Thailand

Freshwater fishing stingrays Maeklong Thailand 2015 – 06 05 2015

Atle Hakonsen and Robert Lim from Mustad visited Thailand on a whirlwind weekend of fishing shows and stingray fishing in Thailand.
On arrival at the Maeklong River the anglers wasted no time in positioning baits across the river in readiness for the stingrays top arrive.
The anglers landed to smaller specimens early in the day before finally hooking something considerably larger.
On winding down into the third Giant freshwater stingray of the day the rod was wrenched down towards the water as it took the strain of a large stingray.
A gruelling battle ensued which saw the angler battling a big stingray as it powered up and down the river.
After clamping onto the bottom on numerous occasions the Giant freshwater stingray was finally brought off the bottom.
The Giant freshwater stingray was slowly brought up through the depths towards the waiting net.
On breaking through the surface the net was quickly spread out under the stingray preventing its escape.
The Giant freshwater stingray was quickly brought to the riverside where it was allowed a short period for recovery and photography.
The Giant freshwater stingray was identified as being a large female with a width of almost two metres and was estimated to weigh in the excess of 200kg.
After the stingray showed signs of recovery it was slowly released back into the Maeklong River.
Atle and Robert chose to use their own brand of Mustad hooks on this trip.
