Posted on October 19th, 2015

Never heard of this species? It lurks around in the Irrawaddy and Salween River systems in Burma and Thailand. It reaches a length of 2 metres. This is equivalent to a weight of around 140 kg (over 300 lb) because of it’ s body shape. In 2014 the first rod caught specimen in decent size of 45 lb. was reported by Tim Webb from the well-known Palm Tree Lagoon fishing lake.
