Where to fish for the Asian Redtail Catfish

The Asian Redtail is present in nearly all of Thaialnd's commercial fisheries. However it doesn't really seem to flourish in small lakes this is due to the fact that in it's native, and wild environments it has migratory behaviour patterns, moving out of very large bodies of water and into rivers for spawning. The biggest specimens are to be found in the dams of Thailand, but again catches on rod on line are rare, although commerical net fishermen often catch good size specimens in excess of 40kgs.
