  Arapaima Fishing Package  
     
 

The second largest freshwater fish in the world. Very difficult to land due to to their immense strength and ability to entwine the line around snags. Extremely powerful fighter with a fast strike followed by an endless hard pull. Despite its size, a very athletic fish, which can jump clear of the water. Although not a natural Thai Fish species (introduced from Amazonas) it have been successfully bred by Thai fish breeders and been sold to many lakes around Thailand and grown to bigger size here than in Amazonas!

 
 

 

 
 
 
 

 

 
 
The Arapaima  (Arapaima gigas) have been caught up to 200kg in Thailand on rod and reel (Krabi). When fishing for Arapaima, we use strong 10 ft. long rods and the biggest Shimano 6500B Baitrunners spooled with 40lb nylon line or 80lb Braid. Dead fish bait or livebait is the preferred bait.
