Fishing Diversity

Our frequent client, Willi from Austria is back and he brought his friend, Robert, along this time. We had a total of nine days planned with five different locations in the itinerary including Bungsamran, Amazon BKK, Palm Tree Lagoon, Jurassic Mountain and IT Lake Monsters.

We kicked things off at Bungsamran in search of Mekong Catfish and Siamese Carp and also to focus on having a high volume of fish to get the edge off the two anglers. Bungsamran did not disappoint with over 30 fish landed between the two.

Next stop is Amazon BKK for the Arapaima and Willi was an expert landing over five Arapaima a day within the two days we spent there. The biggest one being close to 1.9 meters long.

After a one day break, we tackled Palm Tree Lagoon in search for large size species as well as a diversity that Palm Tree Lagoon is known for. We landed the most species here with a haul of Amazon Redtail Catfish, Wallago Attu, Alligator Gar, Chaopraya Catfish, Mekong Catfish, Black Shark Minnow, Mrigal, Salween Rita, Siamese Carp and Stripe Catfish.

Next up we visited Jurassic Mountain which saw over ten fish landed by Robert And Wiili. Willi had a swim that landed him eight Amazon Redtails up to 25 kilos while Robert had a two fish haul that included a Salween Rita and Siamese Carp. I was busy landing fish in the water and didnt capture pictures except for the Salween Rita.

It was unbelievable how fast seven days of fishing went by and in a blink of an eye, we were down to the last two days at It Lake Monsters. The Chaopraya Catfish was the target and it didn't disappoint. Willi and Robert both had there Chaopraya Catfish including a personal best fish. Other fish the two managed to catch also includes dozens of Amazon Redtail Catfish, a few Pacus and Asian Redtail Catfish.

Overall, the two landed over 15 different species in the nine days of fishing with four new species and four new personal best for Willi. Since this is Robert's first time in Thailand, he pretty much had 8 new species and 8 personal bests. See you next year guys!
