Yuri Grisendi lands a Giant Stingray at Maeklong River

Italian angler Yuri Grisendi lands a monster Giant freshwater stingray whilst fishing at the Mae klong River in Thailand.

After spending an uneventful day fishing at the Maeklong River the day before, Italian angler Yuri Grisendi returned for one last days fishing on the river.
The Italian big fish expert was soon being transported downstream to a previously productive area and floats were soon deployed at various intervals across the river.
With no action forthcoming the anglers moved to another area and reset the floats along the river.
A few hours followed before one of the baits was picked up and action commenced. The Giant freshwater stingray was clearly a smallish specimen which was duly boated within ten minutes after being easily overwhelmed by the big game fishing gear.
The Giant freshwater stingray was estimated to weigh 60 kg and was quickly released after a few trophy shots.

The floats were soon back in place for the rising tide and it wasnt long before more Giant stingray action followed.
The stingray on this occasion was clearly a much bigger specimen which powered off on an unstoppable run stripping lots of line from the Okuma multiplier reel.
Clamping down on the clutch saw the Giant freshwater stingray’s run starting to slow, before coming to a halt and charcteristically clamping onto the riverbed.
This would signal the start of an epic battle which would rage on for almost an hour and a half seeing the big fish angler pushed to his absoloute physical limits.
Several times the stingray was brought off the bottom before Yuri could finally pump the River Monster up towards the surface.
After one and a half hours the stingray finally released its grip of the bottom and was slowly brought up from the depths.
Several fraught moments followed before the Giant stingray was finally brought over the waiting net.
The Giant freshwater stingray was estimated to weigh 220 kg’s+ and was allowed a short period for photography.
The stingray was released and swam away strongly back into the depths of the Maeklong River.
