Smiffy with a 120lb Arapaima from Top Cats Resort, ThailandPallatrax Angling
Whilst on holiday in Thailand, Pallatrax Team Member Mike “Smiffy” Peacock enjoyed three days fishing at the Top Cats Resort, Koh Samui. Optimising on the local guides knowledge, Smiffy incorporated a variation of the Pallatrax system to suit the type and size of the fish in the lakes.
He took a variety of 18mm Jungle Baits and 18mm Jungle Flarze Pop-ups which were used with the Jungle overspray and glug. Hook of choice was a Size 2 The Hook used with 3oz Stonze. Over his first two trips Smiffy landed a variety of fish, including Mekong Catfish up to 50lbs and Siamese Carp up to 70lbs.
On his final trip to Top Cats, Smiffy focused on Arapaima and Alligator gar in the morning. and landed this Arapaima weighing around 120lb! Smiffy would like to thank all the staff at Top Cats resort for an amazing time.
