Put any topics that do not fit elsewhere in this forum. A good place to just BS.

3 more fish off my bucket list today.

Big day today, I scratched 3 more off my bucket list.

Red tail catfish, 2 50kg hard lugging bruisers.

2 Paku, small then the rest but still the biggest member of the piranha family.

Two Alligator Gar.

And one more Arapaima, not as big as my last one but still a solid 100kg+ fish.

Those are some big fish for the tackle used. Is that just a pond you are fishing in?

Wicked. Just don't stand in the water as something might just catch you!

A fishing park, they have hundreds of them here from bread and butter ponds with catfish and Tilapia for people to fish for a feed to big game fishing parks that have Siamese carp and Arapaima that weigh over 200kg.

Prices vary, usually if they are local or foreign owned and any big game park charges you at least double if your a foreigner. But this park still only cost about $96usd a day bait included.

To put their size into perspective I'm 260lbs so they are very solid fish.
