While spending Christmas in Thailand Kinetic test team member Henrik Carl had the opportunity to fish at the famous Gilhams Fishing Resort located in the Krabi province.
The lake holds several different big fish species from Asia, South America, Europe and Africa, and during three days of fishing Henrik caught 10 different species and 26 fish in total. His catches included Redtail catfish (Phractocephalus hemioliopterus), Mekong giant catfish (Pangasianodon gigas), Siamese giant carp (Catlocarpio siamensis) and a Arapaima (Arapaima gigas). The biggest of these was a 55 kilo Mekong catfish.
These giants are known to be some of the hardest fighting freshwater fish, and for 45 minutes this fish was displaying its strength to a point where Henrik had to jump in the water to follow and avoid being spooled!
