Jean Francois Helias, legendary fishing guide in Thailand send us this interesting report:
"I just got back today from a 4 days fishing trip at both Ratchaburi and the Mae Klong river. I fished that river to try breaking my still current 1.80 kg Golden Belly Barb All Tackle record (a tie with my client) which was set a long time ago. I only had one bite fishing with fruit on top water. The fish did not get hooked...
But we did very well at Ratchaburi with 5 clients from the USA.
One of them from San Antonio, Texas, Kyle Burgess, who was on his first visit to Thailand, got particulary lucky during the 3 days fishing he had with us.
On his first day fishing on May 11, he had the chance to land after a tremendous fight a 72 kilos (158 pounds) Mekong giant catfish.
Two days later, while guiding him for a day at Ratchaburi, the higlight of his day was a 30 kilos (66 pounds) Redtail catfish. A big one for Thai angling standards!nks one million
