Giant Stingray fishing Maeklong River

Giant Stingray fishing Maeklong River – 02 03 2015

David from France began his Thailand fishing holiday fishing for Giant Stingrays at the Maeklong River in Samut Songkran.
On arrival at the Maeklong River the angler was soon positioned in a wide section of the river waiting for the arrival of the stingrays.

After just over an hour one of the floats burst into life as it was slowly dragged against the current.
On winding down into the unseen Giant freshwater stingray the rod was dragged down towards the surface as it took the full weight of the fish.

A ten minute battle followed which saw the angler putting as much pressure on the fish from above to keep it off the bottom.
Slowly but surely the Giant freshwater stingray was brought up through the depths until it broje through the surface of the water and was engulfed by the net.

On returning to the bankside the Giant freshwater stingray was estimated to weigh 50kg and released after a few quick photographs.
Returning to the productive Giant Stingray fishing area soon saw the angler attached to another Giant freshwater stingray which fought much harder and was landed after almost twenty minutes.

The Giant freshwater stingray on this occasion was estimated to weigh 80kg’s and was photographed before release.

David fished for a further few hours but failed to catch any further stingrays
