Baetong 23/03/2014

Having never pulled a Mekong giant catfish out of Baetong I thought I’d try the the big fish set-up I usually use at Pattaya Fishing Park. A cage type feeder running free on 45lb main line, a strong swivel and 60lb braid tied onto a size 16 Gamakatsu hook. This seemed to work well for small sawai, others were having success floating bread on the surface. After dark the best technique seemed to be to use a float with the feeder set to about 75cm. In the 5 hour afternoon/evening session I landed 9 striped catfish weighing between 2Kg and  8Kg, the Mekongs remain elusive.
