Those Aras and the Redtail are tremendous fish. Look like a blast. I'm guessing that you are fishing at one of those fishing parks in Thailand . As cool as it looks if I was looking to have that experience and spend that kind of money I would personally opt to fish SA where the fish are in their natural habitat. But that's just me cool video and great fish!

Good video. You caught some really nice fish there. I also like the editing software you are using. Good job all the way around.

So, I was watching River Monsters the other day. It was an episode about the electric eel... Just so happened that arapaima were being caught in that show... When I saw this, River Monsters was the first thing that I thought of...

There's a River Monsters episode specifically for Arapaima. You should check it out.
