Saturday 10th March – Was a very busy again at the Lodge. After Friday’s pouring rain, the fish were feeding again. Today, it was the Arapaima in the bottom pond that were active, with, amongst others, 3 of them, caught by Thomas Dovling and his party. Thomas has been fishing here many times and has never managed to catch an Arapaima before this visit. He has also donated a very fine RAPALA weighing net and scales (up to 25 Kg) to the Lodge. Thank you, Thomas – and of course RAPALA.
These scales were put to fine use, when returning ‘Day PACKAGE’ customer, Jesper Jakobsen pulled a nice 22.38 Kg Giant Mekong Catfish from our top pond. (Almost 50 lb in old money).
Christelle Bardez and her partner also joined us on the bottom pond and bagged a good Asian Redtail, an Alligator Gar, some Pacu and some Siamese Carp from the top pond.
For our other visitors, some Siamese Carp (Some to around 19 Kg) and plenty of Suwai & Pacu to keep the kids amused, plus a late Amazon Redtail for Jesper – All in all a fairly good day.
