Rare Giant Freshwater Stingray Caught

One of our readers has sent in this photo of an enormous & rare Giant freshwater stingray caught in December 2007. The monster ray was caught in the Ban Pakong River 80 kms east of Bangkok, Thailand. The fish was captured by Tom Parker from Coventry whilst fishing on a fishsiam.com guided freshwater angling expedition. The immense size of the fish made it impossible to weigh. With a wingspan of 2.4m the giant ray was estimated to weigh in the region of 170-200kgs.

The capture was made in the lower tidal reaches near Chachoengsao and took almost an hour to land. The fish was released after capture.
