IT Lake Monster Predator fishing trip Thailand – 24 04 2014
Irish angler Thomas started his Thailand holiday with a visit to IT Lake Monster on a Predator fishing trip.
On arrival the angler began fishing with lures and was soon landing several Alligator Gar and Pacu.
Further casts saw the angler landing several smallish Redtail Catfish in addition to a decent sized Giant Snakehead of 4.5kg.
After changing onto bait in the afternoon the angler began catching a much better stamp of fish with several Redtail Catfish to 25kg’s falling to mackerel fillet deadbaits.
With several large Chaophraya Catfish basking in the upper layers out on the middle of the lake the angler was soon fishing a Tilapia livebait in the centre of the pond.
After a short period the live fish was picked up by a Chaophraya Catfish causing line to disappear from the reel rapidly.
Winding down into the Chaophraya Catfish saw it respond with a high speed run to the other side of the lake before it turned sharply going in the other direction.
The battle lasted over ten minutes and finally saw a lovely Chaophraya Catfish netted.
The Chaophraya Catfish was estimated to weigh 35kg and was proudly displayed the captor.
Thomas added several more Redtail Catfish and Sorubim to his haul of monster fish before the predator fishing trip came to an end.
At the end of the days fishing at IT Lake Monster in Thailand Thomas had landed over twenty fish topped by a pristine Chaophraya Catfish of an estimated 35kg+
