  Giant Mekong Catfish Fishing Package  
     
 

The Giant Mekong Catfish, the most prized Catfish species in the world and also the biggest freshwater fish in the world. Anglers who have encountered a battle with a big Mekong catfish will never forget it! The Mekong Catfish will test any angler and their equipment to the limit. A fish guilty of destroying more rods, reels, (and anglers) than any other species in the world!

 
 

 

 
 
 
 

 

 
 

The Giant Mekong Catfish  (Pangasianodon gigas) can in the wild reach the weight of 350 kg (unconfirmed reports of 500kg) it is threatened in its natural domains, the Mekong river by dam building, dynamite blasting of its breeding areas and by excessive netting in the river. Fortunately for anglers they have been successfully bred and been stocked in many lakes and ponds around Thailand. Stocked fish have been caught up to 140kg (Bungsam Lan). When fishing for very big Giant Mekong Catfish in Bungsam Lan, we use strong 7ft. long rods and the biggest Shimano 6500B Baitrunners spooled with 40lb nylon line or 80 lb braid.
