IGFA July Hot Catches

Australian women continues assault on fishing records

IGFA July Hot Catches
Benchawan Thiansungoen landed a potential All-Tackle record chao phraya catfish while fishing Palm Tree Lagoon, Thailand.

For some, fishing is just in their blood.

That’s true for Australian Benchawan Thiansungoen, IFGA’s Top Female Freshwater Angler for 2012. She’s at it again this year, landing a potential All-Tackle record chao phraya catfish while fishing Palm Tree Lagoon, Thailand.

Benchawan’s fish ate a piece of chicken she was soaking, and it took the experienced angler 30 minutes to subdue the 121-pound, 12-ounce fish.

Once the fish was landed, it was quickly weighed and documented before being released alive.
