Big Fish Man Thailand Stingray Show

In 2015 Fishsiam was approached by a TV production company working on a new show for Discovery called Big Fish Man with Jakub Vagner.

After several months of planning Big Fish Man Jakub Vagner arrived in Thailand to start his Giant freshwater stingray fishing adventure with Fishsiam.

The start of the trip saw Jakub embarking on a journey down the Chaophraya River in search of the legendary Giant freshwater stingray.

Accompanied by Fishsiam guides the adventure angler navigated his way downstream to the gulf of Thailand before meeting scientists from Chulalongkorn University to assist in Giant freshwater stingray research at the Maeklong River.

Jakub Vagner with only limited fishing time at his disposal caught several Giant freshwater stingrays in the first few days of his fishing adventure at the Mae Klong River, unfortunately the stingrays were all relatively small in size with no monsters making an appearance for the cameras.

The Giant freshwater stingray was estimated to weigh 160-170kg and was released after a scientific examination by Dr. Nantarika Chansue and the VRMC team from Chulalongkron University.
