Giant Siamese Carp fishing Thailand

Giant Siamese Carp fishing Thailand – 15 06 2009

Bangkok Carp angler Brendan revisited Bungsamran Lake in Bangkok fishing for Giant Siamese Carp and monster Mekong Catfish.
On arrival the expat angler chose to fish from the public area and offered large balls of local groundbait on 4 oz Fox Method feeders with Owner hooks popped up with rig foam. Fishing with slack lines the angler carefully watched the surface of the water for signs of carp.
Careful observation soon paid off when a large patch of bubbles began to break the surface above the baited area.

Moments later all hell broke loose as line began to ripped from the spool of the baitrunner reel! Brendan quickly wound down into the fish as a large swirl erupted on the surface! Applying maximum side strain saw the carp being guided away from the nearby snags into open water. A twenty minute battle followed which saw the Giant carp embarking on a series of unstoppable runs. With the fish obviously tiring the angler slowly guided it towards the waiting net where it was expertly netted on the first attempt by Nok. On hoisting the fish onto the landing mat the fish was estimated to weigh 40 kg’s and was released after a few quick photographs.
After rebaiting the rods and recasting the angler sat back and patiently waited for further developments. A few Striped Catfish followed in the next hour with relatively low weights upto an estimated 10kg’s. Another high speed run developed on a rod fished close to the nearby snags which saw the angler battling yet another Giant Siamese Carp. The fish on this occasion was much smaller than the last and succumbed to the constant pressure from the angler and was netted after a ten minute struggle.
After hoisting the fish onto the unhooking mat the fish was estimated to weigh 20kg’s and was released soon after photography. Brendan added several more Mekong Catfish and Striped Catfish to his haul of fish before finally hooking yet another Giant Siamese Carp. A fifteen minute battle saw the carp successfully netted and brought onto the fishing platform.
The Giant Siamese Carp was estimated to weigh 17kg’s and was released after photography
