TBS TV Thailand Stingray fishing Mae Klong River – 14 11 2015
Another stingray fishing trip to the Maeklong River in Thailand saw us fishing and filming with TBS network from Japan.
An early start saw the Japanese TV crew accompanied by a Japanese pro angler fishing a section of the Mae klong River near the estuary.
The TBS TV Thailand team was accompanied by VRMC Chulalongkorn university to record and examine any Giant freshwater stingrays caught on the expedition.
Covering a wide area of the river with floats soon saw one of the floats start to move off as the first stingray of the trip was hooked.
The Giant freshwater stingray was landed after a drawn out battle and was measured at a width of 1.7m.
The stingray estimated at 160kg was quickly released before angling continued.
The TBS team added two other Giant freshwater stingrays to their account in the following hours with respective weights of 40 and 80kg’s
