Thailand carp fishing at Palm Tree Lagoon 2015 – 22 09 2015
Australian angler Ryan started his Thailand fishing holiday with a visit to Palm Tree Lagoon in Ratchaburi.
On arrival at the lake the angler was soon fishing two rods over a large baited area in the centre of the lake.
Ryan was soon into small catfish on the carp rods landing several striped catfish.
After a lull in the action a high speed take saw the angler attached to a much better fish.
With large swirls appearing out in the lake it was clear that Ryan had hooked a Giant Siamese Carp.
The carp powered up and down the lake on a series of powerful runs before finally being netted ten minutes later.
The Giant Siamese Carp was estimated to weigh 45-50kg and was quickly released after trophy shots.
Ryan continued fishing into the afternoon and was soon rewarded with some predator action on a deadbait cast into a quiet corner of the lake.
In the later part of the day the carp rods remained silent, but a series of Redtail Catfish between 30-35kg were landed on the predator outfit.
