Big fish man Dean Macey has travelled with ‘Fishing TV’ to the famous Gilhams Fishing Resort in Southern Thailand for a series of programmes in which he’s targeting some of the venue’s incredible freshwater fish, including arapaima, giant catfish, and the biggest carp of them all, the awesome looking Siamese carp, which grows to world record sizes of over 140lb at the water.
Dean has visited Gilhams before and bagged Siamese carp to over 100lb along with Mekong catfish to nearly 200lb, and describes it as ‘the best stillwater venue on the planet. However, he also intends to catch some of the water’s other wonderful species on what he’s so far only calling ‘creative’ tactics. The programmes will appear on Fishing TV online, on mobile, on tablet and on Samsung and Panasonic Smart TVs. He certainly got off to a good start, bagging a 160lb Mekong catfish on the first morning.
