Having drooled over the pictures of massive mekong catfish caught at Bung samran for years ,it was always a dream to get a chance to fish there. Luckily for me, wifey & self landed up in Thailand for a holiday in end april. First we went to krabi for four days & thereafter , it was back to Bangkok for sightseeing, shopping & fishing. Not necessarily in that order. Having already tied up with "Badboy", we were picked up at 8am on the dot from our hotel & zoomed off to Bungsamran. It was a gloriously sunny day with the clouds playing hide & seek with the sun. We met Badboy at the entrance, had a glance at the & Seas tackle shop , collected our gear & set up shop at one of the open sheds.

Badboy mixed up the bait in a large bucket , rigged up the rods & launched a small bait bomb nearly 100m from the board walk. After a while, it was "FISH ON". This was the first time, I was handling mekong catfish & boy, was I surprised. The sheer brute strength of the fish was amazing. It simply pulled off line with the drag at max setting. I felt like I had hooked on a truck instead of a fish. 15 mins of sustained effort brought him close to the board walk, he took a look at me & took off back into the depths, un winding all the hard fought line. Sweat was pouring off me like a fountain. Everyone around was having a good laugh at my efforts to bring in the monster. Soon , he tired I was able to bring him close & land him. I felt like I had been put through a grinder. This was followed by a sustained series of hook ups & royal battles.
Final tally, 32 fish caught, smallest around 10 kg's & largest around 25 Kg's. All fish were caught & released without damage.
This was the most amazing fishing trip in my life. I needed a lot of Thai Massage to get back on my feet. Evey muscle in my body was screaming, but it was worth every bit. Thanks to Badboy for his amazing skills & superb angling. Will be back soon for another session.

Regards
Cavalier

Speechless :)

Awesome catfishes there. Glad you have had a trip of a lifetime. Wish you have some more. Even glad your better half was there with you to support. In my case I once tried and giving her the fishing rod and guess what a sole EAT the bait the hook enter the intestines but still she did not realize :) now every time that pic comes up theres a boasting :)

Hi, Reply to all mails.

Thanks for all the kind words. I definitely had a great time. I was targeting Mekong catfish only. Saw many massive Arapaima,s & Siamese Carp weighing above fifty kilos each but would have needed differnt tackle & bait. I got three striped catfish, but could not take photos as they have huge spines on their pectoral fins & tend to thrash around a lot out of water. For snakehead & other fish you will have to head out to rivers in the North. Plan to do so in my next trip. The guides are very knowledgeable & have worked regularly with Angling greats like Jeremy Wade & others.

I met Helias's wife but could not meet him as he was out of town. The annual Bangkok Tackle manufacturers exhibition was also on at this time.Fabulous display of tackle from all the big manufacturers. The tackle was generally of the very heavy sea fishing type. Lots of japanese manufacturer's (Ryobi), superb stuff. Could pick up some tackle. Main problem being the Airline weight limitations. By the end , I was totally zapped & could not even lift a finger. Worth every penny.
