With the ladies off enjoying exploring the local beaches, the gentlemen sallied forth to endure a day on the fish....and what a day.....with fish on from the very first moment of the bread bait hitting the water.
Although a bit breezy we opted for float fishing setting the baits very shallow to avoid the multitude of walking catfish that inhabit this particular water.
Here's Tony with the first of the day's pacu which more than impressed him with its amazing fighting ability. These are seriously exciting fish.
Tony was the one to impress right from the off as after several pacu he then tempted this very nice Siamese carp. Again, the power of this species made for a number of very lengthy and powerful runs across the lake.
The two friends were certainly enjoying a day of non-stop action. It was so busy that we needed to limit ourselves to one rod each and dared not put them down for a moment for fear of them being pulled into the lake.
Here's Tony with another of the lake's hardest scrappers.
What a great day for us......it really was 'fish on' from start to finish. Amazing Thailand indeed.
We all caught and landed well into double figures of fish with plenty of our barbless hooks thrown during lengthy fights.
