Thailand Trip Nets
Two World Records
Later in the trip, while fishing at Srinakarin Reservoir, our host Jean-Francois Helias beat his own world record for the elusive cobra snakehead with an 11.4 pound beauty.
Jean Francois reports:
”I’ve dreamed of catching a Cobra Snakehead over 5 kilos for a long time. Fish at that weight are extremely difficult to catch. Not only they are very cautious, but being territorial they always inhabit an underwater lair in a heavily snagged area where it is difficult to cast.
“I wish you could have seen the zen accurate cast I did six times in a row through bushes and floating bamboo to make that fish coming out of its lair and strike. It was such a great feeling to hold such a magnificent specimen in my hands, before releasing it.”
FishQuest’s Thailand trips combine a variety of native and exotic species, including Mekong catfish, Siamese carp and Giant Snakehead. Our next trips are scheduled for July 20-30, August 17-27 and September 19-29. If your time and budget permit, we can also help you arrange extension trips within Thailand or neighboring countries.
