  Giant Siamese Carp Fishing Package  
     
 

The elusive Giant Siamese Carp, the most prized Carp specie in the world and also the biggest carp species in the world. With fish like this in Thailand, we often wonder why people still want to fish for carp anywhere else!

 
 

 

 
 
 
 

 

 
  The Giant Siamese Carp (Catlocarpio siamensis) can in the big rivers of Thailand and Vietnam reach the weight of 200 kg (unconfirmed reports of 250kg) They are these days extremely rare as pollution and excessive commercial fishing for them has nearly wiped them out from their natural habitat. Fortunately for anglers they have been successfully bred and been stocked in many lakes around Thailand. Stocked fish have been caught up to 120kg size (Bungsam Lan). When fishing for very big Giant Siamese Carp in Bungsam Lan, we use strong 7-8ft. long rods and the biggest Shimano 6500B Baitrunners, total concentration is required during the fight, one wrong move that gives the fish a fraction of a second and he will "do you," straight away. In the Krabi lake where there are not so many snags as in Bungsam Lan, it is possible to use equipment similar to the ones used by European carp anglers. The Krabi lake has also been stocked with the hard fighting Julliens Golden Price Carp up to 40 lb.
