Massive 19lb Giant Snakehead on Fishing trip in Northern Thailand

thailand_fishing_oct2_3Great success for Australian angler Steven Raleigh at Mae Ngat Dam! Steven visited Chiang mai for a full day Giant snakehead fishing session. Using topwater lures like poppers, frogs and diving lures like Rapala Magnum, he caught nice Jungle perch and snakeheads in the 3-4 kg range. Finally he hooked into a big whacker Giant Snakehead, which showed 19lb on the Boga grip after a tremendous fight. Congratulations to this exceptional catch! Below a large specimen sized Giant Snakehead. At 19lb this beauty is an unforgettable catch and a good size for one of North Thailand’s best lure fishing destinations Mae Ngat reservoir.
