Mekong Catfish fishing in Bangkok

Mekong Catfish fishing in Bangkok – 09 11 2010

Canadian angler Brian accompanied by his wife visited Bungsamran Lake in Bangkok fishing for Mekong Catfish and other monster fish.
Brian began fishing from a private bungalow and cast large balls of groundbait fished under sliding bungs towards fish showing in the centre of the lake.
After literally a matter of minutes one of the floats buried beneath the surface as a catfish powered off with the bait.
Winding down into the Mekong Catfish saw the rod bent over double as it took the strain of the monster catfish.
A tiring ten minute battle followed which saw the Mekong Catfish trying to cut the angler off on the supports of the fishing platform.
After steering the Mekong Catfish away from danger on several occasions the Mekong Catfish was finally netted and hoisted onto the unhooking mat.
The Mekong Catfish was estimated to weigh 25kg’s and was released after a few trophy shots.
Brian’s wife was the next one into a Mekong Catfish which once again tore off towards the distant bank.
Another battle followed which once again saw the lady angler playing the Mekong Catfish for at least ten minutes before it was netted.
The Mekong Catfish was slightly smaller on this occasion and was estimated to weigh in the region of 20kg’s.
The anglers fished into the afternoon and landed a succession of monster catfish with Mekong Catfish to an estimated 30kg’s.
At the end of the days highly prolific fishing session at Bungsamran Lake in Bangkok the anglers had amassed a fifteen fish haul consisting of Mekong Catfish to 30kg’s and a few bonus Striped Catfish to an estimated 10kg’s.
