River Monster !!!!

Fish of a lifetime caught in the Phang Nga province of Thailand. These are so big you need a specially made cage to net them!

Hope you enjoy

VERY nice arapaima. I gather that they can be difficult to catch.  :clap:
You must have been buzzing for ages after landing it. Did you go on a dedicated angling holiday?

Yep ... dedicated 1 week of the 4 week Thailand trip to fishing.

That old girl took about 45 minutes to land and about 4 days to wipe the smile off my face !!!

I'd love to do that myself one day.

Now the sea is warming up, I'll aim to post some pics of the fish I land over the coming months, but being the UK they won't be as spectacular as yours.

Hardly a monster, but as you can see, when my daughter caught this Ballan Wrasse on a recent fishing trip, it made her very happy.  Very Happy

Nice fish Jordan. What is the species in the bottom photo?

I recently decided to have a go at doing some coarse fishing, so yesterday I visited a small lake. The fish weren't very big, but I did catch around 30 during a four hour session.

Those are awesome, I bet it was a heck of a fight to get them in. I admit I am jealous, looks like a great trip fishing there.

The biggest took about and hour and a half to get in, the others only a few minutes (10 max).

The last day I hooked a monster estimated at over 250lb .... but it snapped off 2 and a half hours into the fight. Gutted !!!!

Didn't get the world record fish I was after but gives me something to attempt next trip.


EDIT 11/04/15 ..... turns out I did get a IGFA World Record !! The Salween Rita Catfish beat the current Rod and Reel by about 3kg. Got the email last week STOKED !

Well, summer is winding gown so I figure I would give this a bump to see what other monsters you guys got. Just living vicariously through you guys as I haven't been able to get out to do much fishing in quite some time.

I know one of those is called airepima not sure if spelled right but that is how he said it. I know because it was on river monsters with Jeremy wade. One of my favorite shows when I can catch it. Care to share on the others names? You have some amazing fishing trips man, I am pretty jealous.
