Stingray Fishing Thailand

Stingray fishingThe Giant Freshwater Stingray (Himantura Chaophraya) is found in various river systems throughout the Kingdom of Thailand and is reputed to reach weights exceeding 1,000lb (450kg). It is a serious candidate for the largest freshwater fish on earth and is one of the least studied creatures on the planet. With very little known about this prehistoric predatory fish and very few documented captures it is truly a fish shrouded in folklore and legend. Fishing in Thailand for Giant Freshwater Stingray is a highly adventurous undertaking requiring the strongest of equipment and the most determined of anglers.
A fight can last easily for a couple of hours and brings every angler close to their physical limits. I would describe these epic battles as the ultimate test of Men vs. Beast
At the time of writing our team has accounted for twenty five individual captures of Giant freshwater stingray with fish estimated to weigh in the excess of 220kg+ (484lb).
The wild and daunting tidal rivers that these ancient creatures inhabit are truly unexplored waters, with turbulent currents caused by daily tidal invasions and depths reaching twenty metres in parts. Giant freshwater stingray typically inhabit large rivers such as the Mekong, Ban Pakong, Maeklong and Nakon Nayok River in addition to several other river systems throughout the Kingdom of Thailand. The sheer size of the river systems that Giant freshwater stingray inhabit coupled with the nomadic movements of this mighty species make location a key factor.
