Srinakarin Dam is one of the biggest dams located in the Kanchanaburi Province, Thailand.  Well known for it’s lush forest and green hills, it is also a place that can offer decent good fishing as Fred found out.

The water level is low since the raining season has been late this year. Finding the fish will be a real challenge. Fred’s plan is to fish small crank baits along the rocky drop off.

Good start when a Giant Snakehead took a liking for the Rapala Shad Dancer 5cm in Hot Tiger colour.

Casting at all the likely spots produced no fish and Fred was blessed to chance upon a river that holds fish.

Refusing to give up on the idea that the rocky drop off holds no fish, Fred downsized the lure to a 4 cm Shad Dancer in Fire Tiger colour and got rewarded with a nice Hampala immediately.

The change of lure and the colour seemed to work wonders as another nice size Hampala is caught

Towards the end of the trip, when casting the same lure along a rocky outcrop, Fred had a good take and a nice Giant Snakehead was landed on his BFS setup.

The NORTH CRAFT Adration is a floating minnow designed for casting long distances thanks to its aerodynamic design which also makes it extremely stable in flight. Even when fished with a blazing fast, flat-out retrieve, the Adration holds steady in the water without blowing out. Unlike many similar designed seabass lures which swim relatively shallow (approx. 0.3 – 0.6m depth), the Adration retains the moderate rolling and slight wobbling action at a deeper depth of 0.8 to 1.0m. Not many lures in the market are able to retain this action at a deeper depth.

Although the Adration was primarily designed for Japanese seabass, this minnow also works extremely well in South East Asian waters, both in fresh and saltwater. Whether fished with a constant retrieve, jerk-pause or aggressive retrieve-jerk combo, the Adration is suitable for Peacock Bass, Sebarau, Toman and even coastal species such as Barramundi, Trevally, Queenfish and Barracuda.

The NORTH CRAFT Adration is available in 125mm (ART125F), weighing 20g and a new 90mm version (ART90F) which weighs 12g.

The North Craft BMC stands for ‘Ballistic Minnow Continental’ and it truly casts like a ballistic missile. This surface lure works extremely well with slow, gentle rod tip action with the occasional pause. Best application in fast flowing rivers or areas with currents. Horizontal position makes the BMC appear like a wounded baitfish being washed downstream by the currents. Equally as deadly in saltwater when predators are feeding close to the surface. Chasing Sagai with topwater lures? This is the lure to get!

The Mae Nam Chao Phraya (Chao Phraya river) is one of Thailand’s major rivers, stretching 372kms from Nakhon Sawan right through Bangkok and into the Gulf of Thailand. Apart from being an important source of irrigation and transportation, the Chao Phraya river is also an excellent place to catch a myriad of freshwater species! Daniel Wan spends a day on the Chao Phraya with Mr Lertsak Banklongsee (Mr Bee) and Mr Ak Sudasna to bring you some shots from the river.
