More Stingrays from the Mae klong River

Palm Tree client Colin visits the Mae klong River in Samut Songkran and lands a brace of stingrays.

Another trip fishing at the Mae klong River saw Tim from Palm Tree and UK angler Colin making an early start on the banks of the Mae Klong River.
After boarding the boat the anglers were soon transported to a wide section of the tidal river and floats were deployed at various points along the central channel.
After only a few hours fishing one of the floats started to slowly move downstream.
The Giant freshwater stingray on this occasion was clearly a small fish and was easily beaten with the big game tackle and was soon lifted into the boat.The juvenile freshwater stingray was quickly photographed and was estimated to weigh 25 kg’s before being slipped back into the river.
The anglers were soon back into position in the same area and it wasn’t long before another float burst into life. On this occasion the fish was a much larger specimen and a long protracted battle ensued.
After embarking on a series of powerful runs the stingray came to a halt and proceeded to clamp onto the bottom in an attempt to evade capture.
Repositioning the boat above the fish soon had it moving and line being replaced on the reel as the fish was brought off the bottom for the first time.
This process would be repeated several times in the course of the next hour before the stingray was finally ready for netting.
On inspection the Giant freshwater stingray was observed to be a female and was estimated to weigh 140-150 kg’s. After a few trophy shots the fish was released back into the Mae klong River.
