Bungsamran 20th May

The morning started very slowly. I caught the first fish after about 3 hours, a tilapia of less than 1kg. Then came a Mekong of around 22kg and a striped catfish of around 7kg. Mid afternoon the fishing got a bit faster with three more Mekongs in the 20kg to 25kg range. One was hooked in the tail, it looks like this fish used its tail a lot to break up bait balls as it had been hooked three times previously in the tail. Just before 9pm I hooked the last fish of the day, a nice fat Mekong of around 25kg. All the Mekongs put up a great fight really testing my fishing tackle.
