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.
