Thailand Carp fishing Bungsamran Lake

Thailand Carp fishing Bungsamran Lake – 25 04 2012

French fishing writer and international angler Gerard Parruite continued his Fishing holiday in Thailand with another visit to Bungsamran fishing park in bangkok. On this occasion the French fishing enthusiast decided to change tactics and try fishing for carp using feeders fished on the bottom packed with groundbait/lum. Gerard began fishing on the public bank and baited an area close to the wooden supports of the fishing platform lightly with groundbait. It wasn’t long before fish started to show over the baited area with Striped Catfish regularly surfacing over the area and plumes of bubbles breaking the surface. Seconds later the fishing rod burst into life as an unseen monster fish powered off with the bait towards the far side of the fishing park. Gerard quickly lifted into the fish causing the fishing rod to bend over double as it took the strain of the rapidly departing fish.

Winding down heavily into the unseen monster fish soon saw the fish’s run slowing to crawl as the angler piled on the pressure causing the fish to change direction. Several minutes passed before the fish finally revealed itself to be a stunning looking Giant Siamese Carp as it breached the surface before diving down towards the nearby supports of the fishing platform. Further pressure was applied until the Giant Siamese Carp was finally brought into netting range and quickly scooped up into the folds of the landing net.

On inspection the Giant Siamese Carp was estimated to weigh 25kg’s and was proudly held aloft for the camera.

Gerard continued fishing for the rest of the day and once again amassed a large double figure haul of Thailand monster catfish before finally ending the days fishing at
