Arapaima Fishing

The Arapaima (Arapaima gigas) has been caught up to 200kg in Thailand on rod and reel. When fishing for Arapaima, we use strong 8-10 ft. long rods and Shimano 6500B Baitrunners spooled with 40lb nylon line or 80lb Braid. Dead fish bait or live bait is the preferred bait.

Arapaima

Arapaima (Arapaima gigas) common local names: Pirarucu (Brazil) Pla Chon Amezon (Thailand)

Max length 3,5 to 4 meters, and max weight: 250-300 kg Arapaima is one of the largest freshwater fishes in the world, originate from the Amazon River. Arapaima first came to Thailand for the aquarium trade, they thrived and grew as the climate here suits them. In Thailand they are breed for the aquarium trade and as a food source, and in recent years they have been stocked in fishing parks and lakes as a sport fish. In the wild Arapaima have evolved and adapted to different water levels of the river, when the rivers rise they go in search of food in the flooded jungle as the flood waters recede they become trapped in flood ponds as the oxygen depletes other fish die the Arapaima evolved to an air breather allowing them to feast on the dead and dying fish then live in poor quality water till the next floods come.

In Amazon River Arapaima spawn between Februarys to April over sandy bottoms preferring depths up to 2 meter's the Arapaima is sexually mature at the age of five years old and 1,6 meter length.  They lay thousands of eggs and guard their nests and fry, the female grows white tubercules which the young feed on. An Arapaima is very difficult to land due to their immense strengthand ability to entwine the line around snags. An extremely powerful fighter with a fast strike followed by an endless hard pull. Despite its size, a very athletic fish, which can jump clear out of the water. Arapaima feeds on small fish, birds and even smaller animals that are unfortunate to come to close to the water line. We use live or dead bait when we target them and they can also be caught on lures and flies. The scales of the Arapaima can be made into guitar plectrums and nail files.
