Giant Freshwater Stingray caught in Thailand
A Giant Freshwater Stingray, weighing 771 lbs was caught in Thailand yesterday and is easily the 'largest freshwater fish ever caught'. It is also pregnant.
Catching the giant stingray was an ordeal that last over 90 minutes but Ian Welch felt it was well worth it. At 7ft long and 7ft wide with a 10ft tail, the giant stringray needed 13 men to lift it from the water.
Welch commented "As a lifelong angler and biologist it is great my passions have come together."
